Ultrasound-assisted Versus Conventional Landmark-guided Spinal Anesthesia in Patients With Abnormal Spinal Anatomy

2018-03-14 00:34:13 | BioPortfolio


Spinal anesthesia can be challenging in patients with lumbar scoliosis or previous lumbar spine surgery. This study aims to evaluate whether the use of the ultrasound-assisted spinal anesthesia reduces the number of passes required to successful dural puncture compared with the conventional surface landmark-guided technique in patients with abnormal spinal anatomy.

Low-intensity pulsed ultrasound promotes spinal fusion by regulating macrophage polarization.

Spinal fusion is considered the gold standard procedure for treating spinal degeneration, tumors, and trauma. An inflammatory response is an important part of bone repair. We investigated the polariza...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Procedure in which an anesthetic is injected directly into the spinal cord.

The 31 paired peripheral nerves formed by the union of the dorsal and ventral spinal roots from each spinal cord segment. The spinal nerve plexuses and the spinal roots are also included.

Reduced blood flow to the spinal cord which is supplied by the anterior spinal artery and the paired posterior spinal arteries. This condition may be associated with ARTERIOSCLEROSIS, trauma, emboli, diseases of the aorta, and other disorders. Prolonged ischemia may lead to INFARCTION of spinal cord tissue.

The cavity within the SPINAL COLUMN through which the SPINAL CORD passes.

Pathological processes involving any of the BLOOD VESSELS feeding the SPINAL CORD, such as the anterior and paired posterior spinal arteries or their many branches. Disease processes may include ATHEROSCLEROSIS; EMBOLISM; and ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATIONS leading to ISCHEMIA or HEMORRHAGE into the spinal cord (hematomyelia).
