OBJECTIVE: To evolve the formula of relationship between opening angle of laminoplasty and the increased value of cross-sectional area, and to predict the opening angle according to the opening size of lanminoplasty. METHODS: From January 2013 to December 2015, 26 patients underwent single open-door laminoplasty in C₃-C₇. Among them, 10 patients with ossification of posterior longitudinal ligament, there were 6 males and 4 females, aged from 39 to 58 years old with an average of 49...

BACKGROUND: In addition to conventional magnetic resonance imaging (cMRI), diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has been investigated as a potential diagnostic and prognostic tool for patients with degenerative cervical myelopathy (DCM). OBJECTIVE: To assess the efficacy of cMRI and DTI parameters in prediction of surgical outcome in DCM patients. METHODS: One hundred and forty-two patients with DCM who underwent presurgical cMRI and DTI of the cervical spine were included...

PURPOSE: Cervical laminectomy has two major disadvantages: post-laminectomy adhesion of dural membrane and the lack of a fusion bed. The objective of this study was to determine whether simultaneous laminoplasty with fusion (CLPF) might overcome these unwanted outcomes. METHODS: Cases of CLPF for treating various cervical myelopathy with instability who were followed up for at least 12 months were enrolled. Preoperative and postoperative Neck Disability Index (NDI), Japanese Orthopedic Association (JOA) scores before and after surgeries, recovery rates (RRs), C2-7 lordosis, and fusion success rates were evaluated...

BACKGROUND: Metastases to the upper cervical spine were rarely reported in the literature. However, metastases to this area may cause spinal instability and cord compression, which in turn can result in respiratory failure and neurological dysfunction. The present study investigated the efficacy and safety of posterior decompression and occipitocervical fixation followed by intraoperative vertebroplasty for this disease. METHODS: This was a retrospective study that included 10 patients with metastatic involvement of the axis from March 2002 to May 2014...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to synthesize recommendations on the use of common elective surgical and interventional procedures for individuals with persistent and disabling non-radicular/axial with or without myelopathy, radicular back pain, cervical myelopathy, symptomatic spinal stenosis, and fractures due to osteoporosis. This review was to inform a clinical care pathway on the patient presentations where surgical interventions could reasonably be considered. METHODS: We synthesized recommendations from six evidence-based clinical practice guidelines and one appropriate use criteria guidance for the surgical and interventional management of persistent and disabling spine pain...

In the United States, cervical total disk arthroplasty (TDA) is US Federal Drug Administration (FDA) approved for use in both 1 and 2-level constructions for cervical disk disease resulting in myelopathy and/or radiculopathy. TDA designs vary in form, function, material composition, and even performance in vivo. However, the therapeutic goals are the same: to remove the painful degenerative/damaged elements of the intervertebral discoligamenous joint complex, to preserve or restore the natural range of spinal motion, and to mitigate stresses on adjacent spinal segments, thereby theoretically limiting adjacent segment disease (ASDis)...

BACKGROUND: Limited information is available on spinal extradural arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs). OBJECTIVE: To present treatment strategies in relation to the angioarchitecture. METHODS: Fourteen patients treated at 2 hospitals were retrospectively analyzed. RESULTS: Fourteen AVFs included 4 cervical, 1 thoracic, and 9 lumbosacral lesions. Three key angiographic features were observed: 1) the feeding artery, 2) an enlarged extradural venous plexus, and 3) intradural retrograde venous drainage...

OBJECTIVE The Patient-Reported Outcomes Measurement Information System (PROMIS), which is funded by the National Institutes of Health, is a set of adaptive, responsive assessment tools that measures patient-reported health status. PROMIS measures have not been validated for surgical patients with cervical spine disorders. The objective of this project is to evaluate the validity (e.g., convergent validity, known-groups validity, responsiveness to change) of PROMIS computer adaptive tests (CATs) for pain behavior, pain interference, and physical function in patients undergoing cervical spine surgery...

STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective cohort study. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship between spinal cord microstructures and spinal cord dysfunction in degenerative cervical myelopathy (DCM) patients, a follow-up study was carried out using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and neurite orientation dispersion and density imaging (NODDI), an advanced diffusion model. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: DTI has been used for diagnosis of DCM. Though DTI has advantages of high sensitivity and quantitative features, it is limited by its low specificity for measuring microstructures...

PURPOSE: Although anterior and posterior decompression surgery are both reported to treat patients with myelopathy caused by ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL). The surgical strategy of the disease is still controversial when the OPLL is multilevel and severe.

Dynamic spinal cord compression has been investigated for several years, but until the advent of open MRI, the use of dynamic MRI (dMRI) did not gain popularity. Several publications have shown that cervical cord compression is both static and dynamic. On many occasions the evaluation of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is straightforward, but patients are frequently encountered with a significantly worse clinical examination than would be suggested by radiological images. In this paper, we present an extensive review of the literature in order to describe the importance of dMRI in various settings and applications...

Study Design: Observational cohort study. Purpose: To assess the surgical outcomes of posterior decompression and fusion for cervical myelopathy in patients with athetoid cerebral palsy. Overview of Literature: Patients with athetoid cerebral palsy demonstrate involuntary movements and develop severe cervical spondylosis with kyphosis. In these patients, surgery is often performed at an early age because of myelopathy. A few studies have reported about the long-term outcomes of surgical treatment; however, they contain insufficient information...

BACKGROUND: Whether modified laminoplasty is better than conventional laminoplasty is unclear. Thus, a meta-analysis comparing the outcomes of preserving or repairing the posterior deep extensor insertion to C2 in laminoplasty was conducted for patients with multilevel cervical spondylotic myelopathy (MCSM). METHODS: Several electronic databases were chosen to search for relevant studies. The primary indices included preoperative and postoperative JOA scores, JOA recovery rate, muscle atrophy rate, preoperative and postoperative range of motion (ROM), ROM decrease rate, and incidence of axial pain...

BACKGROUND: Spinal epidural lipomatosis (SEL) is a rare pathologic growth of histologically normal unencapsulated adipose tissue in the epidural space. Although rare, SEL can compress the spinal cord or nerve roots causing myelopathy or radiculopathy. While SEL has been associated with long-term exposure to endogenous or exogenous steroids and obesity, idiopathic forms of SEL are much rarer. CASE REPORT: In this report, we present the first case of SEL isolated to the cervical region compressing the spinal cord in a healthy, non-obese, preadolescent patient...
