Haiting Wang, Yi Zhou, Zhongpu Jiang
OBJECTIVE: This retrospective study compared the efficacy of combined percutaneous ozone injection and percutaneous discectomyto percutaneous ozone injection alone for the treatment of cervical disc herniation. METHODS: Patients with cervical disc herniation who were enrolled in our hospital from October 2010 to June 2015 were divided into two groups: 1) treated with percutaneous ozone injection alone (control; n= 19); and 2) those treated with combined ozone injection and percutaneous microdiscectomy (combined treatment; n= 28)...

BACKGROUND: Although thoracic vertebral malformations with kyphosis and scoliosis are often considered incidental findings on diagnostic imaging studies of screw-tailed brachycephalic breeds, they have been suggested to interfere with spinal biomechanics and intervertebral disc degeneration. It is however unknown if an abnormal spinal curvature also predisposes dogs to develop clinically relevant intervertebral disc herniations. The aim of this study was to evaluate if the occurrence of thoracic vertebral malformations, kyphosis or scoliosis would be associated with a higher prevalence of cervical or thoracolumbar intervertebral disc extrusion in French bulldogs...

PURPOSE: There are only two descriptions of posterior longitudinal ligament (PLL) at the lumbar spine level but its morphologic characteristics are different to cervical and thoracic levels. METHOD: Spine explantation (from Th12 to L5) followed by resection of the neural arch and the dural sheath in 13 fresh cadavers was performed. The PLL was isolated from other epidural structures and its width was measured and compared to the vertebral body width at each vertebral levels...

PURPOSE: To determine if the mechanical properties of the annulus fibrosus (AF) are altered following end-plate fracture. Vertebral fractures, particularly those in the growth plate, are relatively common among adolescents. What is unclear is whether or not these fractures are also associated with concomitant damage to the intervertebral disc (IVD), in particular the AF. METHODS: The current study employed a high-rate IVD pressurization model to create growth plate fractures in the porcine cervical spine...

OBJECTIVE: Cervical spondylosis and cervical disk herniation are the most frequent forms of degenerative disease in the cervical spine. Surgical treatment mainly includes anterior cervical disk fusion. However, information concerning vestibular-evoked myogenic potential (VEMP) recording in patients undergoing cervical spine surgery is limited. The present prospective study aimed to investigate the effect of anterior disk fusion surgery on cervical VEMP (cVEMP) parameters. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twenty-five patients were enrolled in this study, and 20 patients (10 men and 10 women) completed cVEMP testing...

PURPOSE: Percutaneous endoscopic cervical discectomy (PECD) is an emerging surgical treatment for cervical disc herniation in recent years, but the complications of PECD are rarely reported. In this case report, we aimed to report two cases of total spinal anesthesia, an unusual complication of PECD. METHODS AND RESULTS: One patient became unconscious with unstable vital signs and another patient appeared with numbness of both arms and legs during PECD operation...

Xiaojian Hu, Zhong Chen, Yue Wang
STUDY DESIGN: Case report. PURPOSE: To present a rare case of cervical disc herniation concomitant with intradural meningioma which was successfully treated using a single one-stage posterior surgery of tumor resection and transdural discectomy. Coexistence of symptomatic disc herniation and intra-spinal tumor in the same cervical segment is extremely rare. Usually, two-stage anterior and posterior surgeries are needed to treat two conditions, respectively. One-stage posterior surgery to treat two pathologies simultaneously has not been reported in the literature...

The objective was to investigate the effective and safe range of paramedian CDH by percutaneous posterior full-endoscopy cervical intervertebral disc nucleus pulposus resection (PPFECD) to provide a reference for indications and patient selection. Sixteen patients with CDH satisfied the inclusion criteria. Before surgery the patients underwent cervical spine MRI, and the distance between the dural sac and herniated disc was measured. An assessment was performed by MRI immediately after surgery, measuring the distance between dural sac and medial border of discectomy (DSMD)...

Objective: To evaluate the clinical outcomes of posterior percutaneous endoscopic cervical discectomy (PPECD) for cervical disc herniation. Methods: A total of 23 patients who underwent PPECD for cervical disc herniation at Department of Spine Surgery, Guangdong Provincial Hospital of Chinese Medicine from August 2014 to April 2016 were reviewed. The mean age of the 17 males and 6 females was 49.5 years (range from 31 to 61 years). All patients had unilateral upper limb radiating symptoms, 13 patients with right upper limb radiating pain and 10 patients with left upper limb radiation pain, 17 patients with neck pain symptoms...

PURPOSE: To investigate and compare the occurrence of inflammatory processes in the sites of disc degeneration in the lumbar and cervical spine by a gene array and subsequent qPCR and to investigate the mechanistic involvement of transient receptor potential channels TRPC6 and TRPV4. METHODS: The gene expression of inflammatory cytokines and TRP channels was measured in human disc samples obtained from patients undergoing discectomy at the cervical (n = 24) or lumbar (n = 27) spine for degenerative disc disease (DDD) and disc herniation (DH) and analyzed for differences with regard to spinal level, IVD degeneration grade, Modic grade, age, sex, disc region and surgical extent...

Objective: Posterior cervical laminoforaminotomy is used to relieve cervical nerve root compression caused by a laterally herniated soft cervical disc or spondylotic spur and its several advantages and disadvantages compared with anterior cervical discectomy were reported. We compared surgical results between soft ruptured disc and foraminal stenosis in posterior cervical laminoforaminotomy. Methods: We performed a retrospective review of 47 patients performed single level posterior cervical laminoforaminotomy for cervical radiculopathy between 2004 and 2012...

Background: STITCHLESS percutaneous endoscopic cervical discectomy s[PECD] is safe, precise, targeted, and a complete endoscopic procedure to treat soft cervical disc herniation with unilateral radiculopathy. It allows direct visualization of herniated fragment and its removal, inspection of decompressed nerve root in an awake and aware patient. It reduces the risk related to general anesthesia and to the neurological structures. However, all the patients treated with PECD can be candidates for anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF)...

Qing Guan, Fei Xing, Ye Long, Zhou Xiang
BACKGROUND: Cervical intradural disc herniation (CIDH) is rare, and diagnosis and treatment are challenging. We conducted a systematic review and meta-analysis of the literature on the diagnosis and treatment of CIDH. METHOD: The presentation, imaging manifestations, diagnosis, management, prognosis and possible pathogenesis were reviewed following Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses guidelines. English-language studies and case reports published from inception to 2017 were retrieved...

BACKGROUND: For patients with single-level cervical radiculopathy, various types of motion preservation surgeries, such as total disc replacement (TDR), posterior cervical foraminotomy (PCF) and posterior percutaneous endoscopic foraminotomy and discectomy (PECF), are available. In addition to motion preservation, the quality of motion is an important issue. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the influence of these surgeries on cervical motion by comparing the instantaneous axis of rotation (IAR) among PECF, TDR and PCF at the index and superior/inferior adjacent segments...

Hand weakness and wasting in the setting of mid-cervical spondylosis and disc herniation without radiological evidence for compression of the C8 or T1 roots has been rarely reported. We retrospectively studied the data of patients with hand weakness and mid-cervical spondylosis. The clinical and radiological findings were compared to a control group of patients with weakness of the arm or forearm muscles and similar mid-cervical spondylosis. We found 19 patients with weakness and atrophy of the intrinsic hand muscles, and 13 patients with weakness proximal to the hand muscles to serve as a control group...
