Identification of the compression factor in cervical disc herniation and cervical spondylotic radioculopathy is often problematic when using two-dimensional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). This prompted us to compare and examined three-dimensional sequences, coherent oscillatory state acquisition for the manipulation of image contrast (COSMIC), fast imaging employing steady state acquisition (FIESTA) and T2 star weighted MR angiography (SWAN) with 3.0-Tesla (T) MRI to visualize the foramen intervertebral nerve root for the cervical spine...

Anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion is a common spinal procedure. Over time, complications and hospital stay have decreased. However, to the authors' knowledge, no study has examined the necessity of routine postoperative hematologic laboratory studies for patients undergoing this procedure.From January 2005 through July 2010, four hundred thirty-four consecutive patients with cervical radioculopathy or myelopathy underwent anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion at 1 institution. Patients who had a concomitant second spinal procedure, revision anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion, history of anemia or a hematologic condition, or intraoperative complications were excluded, leaving 372 patients for the study group...

We have retrospectively determined the preoperative risk factors in cervical radiculopathy after laminoplasty for cervical myelopathy using preoperative neuroradiographical findings and electrophysiological studies. Of the 67 patients who underwent laminoplasty, 10 patients (14.9%) postoperatively showed cervical radioculopathy. The preoperative radiographical findings had included cervical lordosis, intraspinal cord centering, and anterior protrusion of the apex of the superior articular process. Needle electromyography, somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs), sensory nerve action potentials (SNAP) were preoperatively examined in 42 cases...

Operative treatment was employed in 38 patients with cervical disc lesions. These had produced either compression of spinal cord nerves, especially C6 or C7 (22 cases), or cervical ischemic lesions (16 cases) of the centromedullary region, either isolated or associated with symmetrical, bilateral cord lesions. A study of pre- and post-operative clinical and electromyographic correlations enabled differentiation of acute cervical radioculopathies from myelopathies and definition of their progression as a function of the surgical treatment employed...

Iatrogenic Cushing's syndrome has been reported after the use of nasal, aerosol, oral, and intramuscular steroid preparations. Presented is a case of Cushing's syndrome due to an epidural injection of methylprednisolone. A 24-year-old man had left arm pain after an occupational injury. Electromyography revealed C7 radioculopathy and cervical laminectomy was performed. Postoperatively, the patient noted improvement, however, he had recurrence of his symptoms within 1 month. Significant pain in the left arm, accompanied by swelling, persisted despite non-steroidal anti-inflammatory and anti-depressant medications...
