  • Radiculopathy

    However, thoracic OLF rarely causes radiculopathy. We report a rare case of thoracic radiculopathy caused by OLF.[] Para-sagittal CT and MRI, rotational dynamic CT, and nerve root block were effective for diagnosis.[] Problems occur with nerve root impingement or any nerve root in the cervical spine is inflamed or irritated through compression.[] Abstract To access the effectiveness and safety of cervical spine manipulation for cervical radiculopathy.[] In case of postoperative contralateral leg pain, the patients should be examined by CT and MRI.[] Unfortunately, there are many conditions of the spine that cause nerve compression in the spine .[]

  • Spinal Trauma

    Fracture-dislocations of the thoracic and lumbar spine are caused by very high-energy trauma.[] This article will review the use of MRI in acute spinal trauma.[] The UCSF Spine Center brings together experts in orthopedics, neurosurgery, physiatry and other related areas to treat spine trauma or injuries to bones in the spine, spinal[] Cervical Distraction Test.[] This minimally invasive lateral approach to the thoracic spine offers a very good alternative to an open thoracotomy (opening up the thoracic cavity with a big incision).[] Indications of spinal MRI The main indications of MRI in spinal trauma include [ 2 – 4 ]: 1.[]

  • Klippel-Feil Syndrome

    Radiologically there was evidence of maldeveloped cervical and upper thoracic vertebrae associated with elevated scapula.[] An F-NaF bone PET done as part of the metastatic workup showed the characteristic sagittal bone spur, and MRI demonstrated a complete split of the cervical and upper thoracic[] A cervical spine CT scan is shown in Figure C. His renal evaluation shows unilateral renal aplasia and his cardiac evaluation is normal.[] On MRI, the spinal cord was compressed by a protruding cervical disc and bony spurs at C6-7.[] Published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the European Association for Cardio-Thoracic Surgery. All rights reserved.[] Analysis of axial T1-weighted MRI cross-sectional spinal cord area revealed that the cord was smaller in KFS patients at each level from C2-C7 compared with controls.[]

  • Vertebral Osteomyelitis

    We report a case of thoracic vertebral osteomyelitis, occurring in a refractory Crohn's disease without contiguous abscess or fistula with the bowel. 2014 BMJ Publishing Group[] AIM: To describe the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) appearances in patients with a clinical history suggestive of vertebral osteomyelitis and discitis who underwent MRI[] 30-40% in thoracic spine 10% in cervical spine risk factors include IV drug abuse diabetes recent systemic infection (UTI, pneumonia) obesity malignancy immunodeficiency[] Haematogenous spread may have resulted in cervical vertebral osteomyelitis and retropharyngeal abscess.[] The patient underwent a decompression laminectomy of T1-T3 and debridement of the thoracic epidural inflammatory granuloma.[] We report a 5-year-old boy with cat scratch disease who presented with painful torticollis and osteomyelitis of the cervical spine associated with an epidural abscess.[]

  • Epidural Abscess

    We report a case of a 35-year-old patient with an acute onset of paraplegia diagnosed with a thoracic epidural abscess.[] Contrast-enhanced MRI (CEMRI) demonstrated linear enhancement surrounding unenhanced pus.[] For epidural abscess, the most common involved spine is lumbar followed by thoracic and cervical spine.[] No cases of cervical spondylodiscitis caused by a penetrating neck injury have been published in the literature.[] […] open spine surgery should consider the minimally invasive spine surgery at Laser Spine Institute.[] We present the first case of Brucella infection of the thoracic vertebral arch with epidural abscess formation and discuss the clinical key points.[]

  • Myelopathy

    Myelopathy but normal MRI: where next?[] CONCLUSIONS: A posterior arch defect of the upper and middle cervical spine leading to myelopathy combined with the same defect at the thoracic spine is a rare disease.[] We found that the radiological manifestations of combined upper cervical canal stenosis and cervical OPLL varied among patients.[] A 44-year-old man with a BMI of 62.9 kg/m 2 presented with an ambulatory disorder caused by thoracic ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (T7-8).[] METHODS: We prospectively enrolled seven CSM patients and seven age-matched controls to undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the cervical spine.[] MATERIAL AND METHOD: A 15-year-old PRS patient with thoracic kyphoscolsis developed myelopathy symptom for 4 months.[]

  • Spinal Cord Compression

    The aim of this study is to introduce this thoracic endoscopic-assisted mini-open surgery technique, and we believe that this technique will be a good choice for the thoracic[] Cervical canal anteroposterior diameters at C5 midvertebral level on X-rays, and the prevalence of spinal cord compression (SCC) and increased signal intensity (ISI) changes on MRI[] Imaging studies revealed enhancing lesions on dorsal spines. Bone scintigraphy showed increased tracer uptake at multiple sites.[] OBJECTIVE: To assess the effect of chronic cervical spinal cord compression upon remote motor unit function in patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM).[] However, few studies have investigated the relationship between such MRI findings and paralysis.[] Mary's Hospital, Spine Center, Department of Neurosurgery, College of Medicine, The Catholic University of Korea, Seoul, South Korea.[]

  • Spinal Epidural Abscess

    Although contrast-enhanced spine MRI is the mainstay for diagnosis of SEA, unenhanced MRI is typically performed for patients with nonspecific symptoms or insufficient clinical[] […] open spine surgery should consider the minimally invasive spine surgery at Laser Spine Institute.[] CONCLUSION: Cervical spinal epidural abscess may be caused by iatrogenic perforation of pharyngeal wall during diagnostic oesophagoscopy.[] The present case of spinal epidural abscess in the thoracic spine caused by Salmonella typhi infection illustrates the importance of cultures to assess the drug sensitivity[] Precontrast and postcontrast MR imaging studies revealed a multifocal ventral cervical and upper thoracic spinal epidural abscess.[] Laboratory findings showed an elevated ESR/CRP and leukocytosis, and magnetic resonance imaging revealed a retropharyngeal abscess and cervical myelitis.[]
