159 Possible Causes for Dural Ectasia

  • Aneurysm-Osteoarthritis Syndrome

    Together with clinical findings which included dural ectasia, spondylolisthesis, long slender fingers, pes planus and mild osteoarthritis, he was diagnosed with Aneurysms-Osteoarthritis[] Spine manifestations include scoliosis, spine instability, and dural ectasia.[] Other characteristic clinical findings include (but are not limited to) relative tall stature, arachnodactyly, chest wall deformity, dural ectasia, and mitral valve prolapse[]

  • Marfan Syndrome

    Abstract For patients with Marfan syndrome who present with radicular low back pain, interventional spine providers should be familiar with dural ectasia with variable diffuse[] ectasia, bilateral subluxation of the lens, and severe myopia in addition to the severe generalized lipodystrophy.[] Abstract Defective collagen biosynthesis in Marfan syndrome predisposes to dural defects such as dural ectasia, meningocele, and pseudomeningocele; thus, an increased index[]

  • Lateral Meningocele Syndrome

    KEYWORDS: Tarlov cyst; connective tissue; dural ectasias; joint hypermobility; management[] The characteristic lateral meningoceles represent the severe end of the dural ectasia spectrum and are typically most severe in the lower spine.[] Lateral meningoceles are comprised by protrusion of the arachnoid and dura through the foramina and represent the most severe and extreme end of the dural ectasia spectrum[]

  • Loeys Dietz Syndrome Type 1

    ectasia, 2 had a Chiari malformation, and 1 had intracranial hemorrhage as a complication of vascular dissection.[] Spine manifestations include scoliosis, spine instability, and dural ectasia.[] ectasia It is caused by mutations in the genes encoding transforming growth factor beta receptor 1 ( TGFBR1 ) or 2 ( TGFBR2 ).[]

  • Marfan Syndrome Type 2

    ectasia Additionally, genetic testing for Marfan syndrome can be carried out, although it is difficult because the identified gene can mutate in many different ways.[] ectasia Respiratory: Sleep apnea Dural ectasia is a widening or ballooning of the dural sac surrounding the spinal cord usually at the lumbosacral level.[] Dural ectasia, or enlargement of the dural sac, usually in the lumbar region, may lead to bone erosion and nerve entrapment, both of which can cause significant pain.[]

  • Eye Defects - Arachnodactyly - Cardiopathy Syndrome

    CNS Dural ectasia (widening of the dural sac surrounding the spinal cord) is a common finding and most frequently occurs in the lumbosacral spine.[] ectasia is asymptomatic. 60 FIGURE 9 Dural ectasia of the lumbar spinal canal.[] ectasia; and pulmonologist for recurrent spontaneous pneumothorax, sleep apnea, and other lung problems.[]

  • Nevo Syndrome

    One has, in addition, a wide spinal canal on MRI of the spine indicating some degree of dural ectasia.[] MRI studies in the older child revealed extreme hyperlordosis of the cervical spine and a wide spinal canal suggestive of dural ectasia.[]

  • Posterior Fusion of Lumbosacral Vertebrae-Blepharoptosis Syndrome

    […] reduction of the dural ectasia.[] Screening MRI evaluation of the spinal canal is done prior to surgery as patients may have a condition known as dural ectasia where the covering of the spinal cord and nerves[] The pathogenesis leading to dural ectasia is unclear.[]

  • XXXXY Syndrome

    Magnetic resonance imaging of the brain revealed bilateral optic nerve dural ectasia without evidence of elevated intracranial pressure.[] ECTASIA IN 49, XXXXY SYNDROME. ( 27617393 ) Hajrasouliha A.R....Grassi M.A. 2016 5 Testosterone replacement in 49,XXXXY syndrome: andrological, metabolic and neurological[] PURPOSE: To present a case of a patient with XXXXY syndrome, anomalous optic nerves, and dural ectasia in conjunction with macular detachment. METHODS: Case report.[]

  • Blindness - Scoliosis - Arachnodactyly Syndrome

    Magnetic resonance imaging demonstrated mild scoliosis, as well as dural ectasia at the lumbosacral level.[] Dural ectasia : The brain and spinal cord are surrounded by fluid that is enclosed in a tough membrane called the dura.[] Dural ectasia. The dura is the tough, fibrous outermost membrane covering the brain and the spinal cord.[]
