The purpose of this study is to identify potential risk factors for and determine the rate of pathological fracture for patients which having spine metastases from breast cancer and be def...
RATIONALE: Stereotactic radiosurgery can send x-rays directly to the tumor and cause less damage to normal tissue. It may also help patients with spinal metastases live more comfortably. ...
The purpose of this study is to obtain preliminary information that will help, in the future, design a large trial, to see if SBRT is better than CRT at controlling pain in the spine.
The purpose of this study is to find the safest and most effective dose for delivering proton beam to the space containing CSF, brain, and spinal cord, in treating leptomeningeal metastase...
In major orthopaedic surgery of the lower extremities both continuous spinal anesthesia (CSA) and combined spinal epidural anesthesia (CSE) are safe and reliable anaesthesia methods. Our r...
Spinal metastases cause significant morbidity. The vertebral column is the most common site of cancer metastasis, however predilection of metastases for the spine is not fully understood.
Identify the efficacy of multidisciplinary treatment including palliative spinal surgery on patients with Tomita type 7 spinal metastases.
The spinal column represents the third most common site for metastases after the lungs and the liver, and the most common site for metastatic bone disease. With life-extending advances in the systemic...
Stereotactic body radiotherapy has emerged as an attractive alternative to conventional radiotherapy for spinal metastases. However, it has limitations, including the need for advanced techniques and ...
Several treatment options for spinal metastases exist, including multiple radiation therapy (RT) techniques: three-dimensional (3D) conventional RT (3D-RT), intensity-modulated RT (IMRT), and spine st...
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).
Pathologic conditions which feature SPINAL CORD damage or dysfunction, including disorders involving the meninges and perimeningeal spaces surrounding the spinal cord. Traumatic injuries, vascular diseases, infections, and inflammatory/autoimmune processes may affect the spinal cord.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Pain is defined by the International Association for the Study of Pain as “an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage or described in terms of such damage”. Some illnesses can be excruci...
