The Thoracic Spine in the Overhead Athlete.

Overhead athletes are susceptible to many injuries, particularly in the shoulder and lumbar spine. Due to the heterogeneity of these two regional injuries, it is difficult to pinpoint the exact origin...

Rapidly progressing symptomatic calcification of the ligamentum flavum in the thoracic spine following osteoporotic vertebral fractures.

Symptomatic calcification of the ligamentum flavum (CLF) is common in the cervical spine, but very rare in the thoracic spine. Rapidly progressing CLF in the thoracic spine has not been reported in th...

Thoracic-lumbar-sacral spine sagittal alignment and cranio-mandibular morphology in adolescents.

The relationship between thoracic-lumbar-sacral spine sagittal alignment and craniofacial morphology is still controversial. Evidence-based results are difficult to obtain and scientific studies are i...

The purpose of this study was to examine the thoracic inlet angle (TIA) as well as its related parameters on cervical and cervical-thoracic vertebra in patients with degenerative cervical spondylosis ...

Revision surgery in thoracic disc herniation.

Surgical treatment failures or strategies for the reoperation of residual thoracic disc herniations are sparsely discussed. We investigated factors that led to incomplete disc removal and recommend re...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Deformities of the SPINE characterized by an exaggerated convexity of the vertebral column. The forward bending of the thoracic region usually is more than 40 degrees. This deformity sometimes is called round back or hunchback.

A type of juvenile osteochondrosis affecting the fibrocartilaginous disc (INTERVERTEBRAL DISK) in the thoracic or thoracolumbar region of the SPINE. It is characterized by a forward concave SPINAL CURVATURE or KYPHOSIS.

Surgery performed on the thoracic organs, most commonly the lungs and the heart.

An occupational discipline founded by D.D. Palmer in the 1890's based on the relationship of the spine to health and disease. The spine is analyzed by X-rays and palpation, and vertebrae are adjusted manually to relieve pressures on the spinal cord. OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE was originally similar but has become more like FAMILY PRACTICE.

The outer margins of the thorax containing SKIN, deep FASCIA; THORACIC VERTEBRAE; RIBS; STERNUM; and MUSCLES.
