18 Possible Causes for Intervertebral Spaces Widened

  • Radiculopathy

    The following low-risk techniques aim to increase the intervertebral space, widen cervical neural foramina, and reduce inter-disc pressure [ 6].[epmonthly.com]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    In yoga, the intervertebral spaces are widened by pulling the trapezius and other muscles downwards. This is yogic traction.[ethnichealthcourt.com] A similar approach is known as a laminoplasty in which bones are spread open to widen the space, but not removed Prosthetic intervertebral disc replacement – This relatively[your.md]

  • Spinal Trauma

    Then look for increase in density suggesting compression fracture Cartilage space – pay attention to intervertebral spacing as this may indication subluxation or dislocation[canadiem.org] Widening of this space suggests atlantoaxial dislocation, but can be normal in conditions which cause ligamentous laxity or bony disruption such as downs syndrome and RA S[canadiem.org]

  • Cervical Spine Fracture

    […] disk space height increased interspinous distance facet joint widening vertebral compression greater than 25% Some fractures are associated with blunt cerebrovascular injury[radiopaedia.org] Hyperextension Strain The converse of hyperflexion strain; the anterior longitudinal ligament is disrupted as evidenced by widening of the intervertebral disc space anteriorly[imageinterpretation.co.uk] […] types of cervical spine fracture, some of which are unstable; general indicators of instability include: more than one vertebral column involvement increased or reduced intervertebral[radiopaedia.org]

  • Teardrop Fracture of the Cervical Spine

    Hyperextension Strain The converse of hyperflexion strain; the anterior longitudinal ligament is disrupted as evidenced by widening of the intervertebral disc space anteriorly[imageinterpretation.co.uk] Imaging: Widening of interspinous and intervertebral spaces on lateral. Stability: Potentially unstable.[ddxof.com] This is usually accompanied by widening of the interspinous and interlaminar spaces.[trauma.org]

  • Arthrogryposis Multiplex Congenita

    Spinal radiographs showed platyspondyly of the thoracic vertebral bodies associated with widening of the intervertebral spaces.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] Figure 3 Lateral spine radiograph shows platyspondyly of the thoracic vertebral bodies associated with widening of the intervertebral spaces.[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com] The spine showed relative stiffness, platyspondyly of the thoracic vertebral bodies associated with widening of the intervertebral spaces (fig 3 ).[casesjournal.biomedcentral.com]

  • Ganglioneuroma

    The mass showed strong adhesions to the brachial plexus and the stellate ganglion, with widening of the intervertebral space.[archbronconeumol.org]

  • Ankylosing Spondylitis

    These terms cover dozens of quite different disorders of the musculoskeletal system: Acromegalic arthritis Joint pain, muscle weakness, widening of joint space evident on[margarethillsclinic.com] […] x-ray Ankylosing spondylitis Inflammation of intervertebral joints of lower back gradually leading to curvature and then stiffening of the spine Behçet’s Syndrome Inflammatory[margarethillsclinic.com]

  • Hematomyelia

    On radiographs, there is an increased distance between the occiput and C1 or widening of intervertebral disk space without adjacent compression.[ahcmedia.com]

  • Atlanto-odontoid Dislocation or Fracture

    Hyperextension Strain The converse of hyperflexion strain; the anterior longitudinal ligament is disrupted as evidenced by widening of the intervertebral disc space anteriorly[imageinterpretation.co.uk] The lateral projection demonstrates localised kyphotic angulation with an increase in height of the intervertebral disc posteriorly and associated fanning of the spinous processes[imageinterpretation.co.uk]
