173 Possible Causes for Muscle Spasticity, Scoliosis, Urinary Retention

  • Paraplegia

    Firstly, chronic spasticity might be a risk factor for histopathological muscle alterations.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Five cases of scoliosis with paraplegia are reported, and thirty-six comparable cases from the literature are reviewed.[online.boneandjoint.org.uk] Immediately after LP, the patient remarked a sudden worsening in muscular balance of his inferior limbs and a worsening of urinary retention.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Spinal Cord Transection

    Spasticity can reduce venous pooling and stabilize the thoracic and abdominal muscles used in respiration.[americannursetoday.com] AIMS: In patients with myelomeningocele (MMC) and coexistent scoliosis, a spinal cord transection (SC-transection) is sometimes performed before scoliosis correction to prevent[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] retention, urinary frequency, urinary or fecal incontinence, erectile dysfunction, loss of rectal tone, abnormal bulbocavernosus and anal wink reflexes).[merckmanuals.com]

  • Cervical Myelopathy

    […] paresis, and spasticity; nerve root compression commonly causes early radicular pain, sometimes followed by weakness, hyporeflexia, and muscle atrophy.[merckmanuals.com] Musculoskeletal manifestations including scoliosis and kyphosis have been previously described.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Other studies have found that 20% of their patients with degenerative myelopathy over age 65 had bladder dysfunction, mostly associated with urinary retention.[necksolutions.com]

  • Cervical Spondylosis

    The main clinical features are localized wasting and weakness of the extrinsic and intrinsic hand muscles, but not accompanied by either sensory loss or spastic quadriparesis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] ACDF to correct Developmental Scoliosis from Spondylosis XXXXX 31. ACDF to Correct Developmental Kyphosis due to spondylosis xxxxxxx 32.[slideshare.net] […] or bowel retention, Cervical Spondylosis is a very common disorder.[morphopedics.wikidot.com]

  • Spinal Cord Compression

    Muscle spasticity can cause spasms in the legs or make them more difficult to control.[livestrong.com] Syndromic early-onset scoliosis is considered one of the most aggressive types of early-onset scoliosis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] Spinal cord compression usually causes decreased sensation and paralysis of limbs below the level of compression, urinary and fecal incontinence, and/or urinary retention,[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov]

  • Cerebral Palsy

    RESULTS: Significant changes were observed in the children's gross motor function and muscle spasticity, as evidenced by the GMFM-88 total score, scores for each of its domains[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] scoliosis.[doi.org] Elliott, Bladder changes after catheterizable channel creation in adults with cerebral palsy who are in chronic urinary retention, Neurourology and Urodynamics, 38, 1, (165[doi.org]

  • Multiple Sclerosis

Additionally, he had hypertelorism, a wide forehead and flattening of mid-face.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] retention A constant state of tiredness or fatigue There appears to be a relationship between multiple sclerosis, higher temperatures, and the worsening of symptoms.[emedicinehealth.com]

  • Spinal Cord Injury

    Some people with spinal cord injuries experience one of two types of muscle tone problems: uncontrolled tightening or motion in the muscles (spasticity) or soft and limp muscles[mayoclinic.org] Abstract The authors report a case of unilateral loss of intraoperative transcranial electrical motor evoked potentials (TES MEP) associated with a spinal cord injury during scoliosis[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] The latter can lead to neurogenic shock, paralytic ileus, aspiration, urinary retention, priapism and loss of thermoregulation.[patient.info]

  • Arnold Chiari Malformation

    spasticity, and episodic urinary retention.[dynamicchiropractic.com] Common associated radiological problems included syringomyelia (60%), scoliosis (25%), and basilarinvagination (12%), increased cervical lordosis 5 (8.5%), and Klippel Feil[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] […] diagnosis has not kept me from experiencing several chronic conditions including Arnold Chiari malformation , an aortic aneurysm, several skeletal issues(fused bones and scoliosis[globalgenes.org]

  • Poliomyelitis

    Group B coxsackieviruses produce focal muscle lesions, necrosis of fat pads between the shoulders, focal lesions in the brain, and spinal cord and spastic paralysis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] He had scoliosis and atrophic right leg change as sequelae of poliomyelitis.[ncbi.nlm.nih.gov] retention and muscle spasms.[merckmanuals.com]
