lumbar disc nomenclature

Zhaoqiang Li, Yi Qin, Yuanxiang Tian, Jianxin Zhao
OBJECTIVE: To analyze the researches of acupuncture and moxibustion for lumbar disc herniation (LDH) in recent 15 years and summarize the research direction and collect the knowledge structure. METHODS: The relevant literature on acupuncture and moxibustion for the treatment of LDH was retrieved from CNKI. After Refworks format reversion, the CiteSpace software was used to create the reproductive map of the authors, research institutions and keywords in the literature on acupuncture and moxibustion for LDH...

PURPOSE: Vertebral endplate abnormalities may be associated with disc degeneration and, perhaps, pain generation. However, consensus definitions for endplate findings on spine MRI do not exist, posing a challenge to compare findings between studies and ethnic groups. The following survey was created to characterize the variability among the global spine community regarding endplate structural findings with respect to nomenclature and etiology. METHODS: A working group within the International Society for the Study of the Lumbar Spine (ISSLS) Spinal Phenotype Focus Group was established to assess the endplate phenotype...

BACKGROUND: Several disc disease nomenclatures and approaches for LDH exist. The traditional midline bone-destructive procedures together with approaches requiring extreme muscular retraction are being replaced by muscle sparing, targeted, stability-preserving surgical routes. The increasing speculation on LDHs and the innovative corridors described to treat them have lead to an extensive production of papers frequently treating the same topic but adopting different terminologies and reporting contradictory results...

BACKGROUND: Lumbar disc disease has a disabling impact on global people with heavy burden on society, mainly consisting of lumbar disc degeneration (LDD) and lumbar disc herniation (LDH). The recently released lumbar disc nomenclature version 2.0 deepens our understandings on the diseases. Consequently, there is an urgent need to clarify the occurrence and distribution features of LDD and LDH in a large-scale sample in terms of the novel version. QUESTION/PURPOSES: We asked: (1) Is there a difference in the occurrence and distribution hallmarks of LDD and LDH in a population-based large-scale sample? (2) Does the novel nomenclature version bring novel vision on lumbar disc disease? METHODS: Five thousand two hundred eighty-eight consecutive cases (26,440 lumbar discs) undergoing lumbar spine MRI were retrospectively included from Jan 2008 to Dec 2010 in a territory university hospital...

Lumbar disc herniation is one of the most common damage of musculoskeletal system. The incidence of pain of lumbosacral spine is estimated approximately on 60-90% in general population, whereas the incidence of disc herniation in patients experiencing low back pain is about 91%. Despite the high incidence and uncomplicated pathogenesis of disc disease there is a problem with the nomenclature. In the vast majority of cases, the naming confusion stems from ignorance of the etiology of low back pain. Different terminologies: morphological, topographical, Radiological and Clinical are used interchangeably...

BACKGROUND: MRI is the gold standard for evaluating the relationship of disc material to soft tissue and neural structures. However, terminologies used to describe lumbar disc herniation and nerve root compression have always been a source of confusion. A clear understanding of lumbar disc terminology among clinicians, radiologists, and researchers is vital for patient care and future research. QUESTIONS/PURPOSES: Through a systematic review of the literature, the purpose of this article is to describe lumbar disc terminology and comment on the reliability of various nomenclature systems and their application to clinical practice...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Herniated disc fragments are known to migrate in various directions within the spinal canal. To date, no comprehensive studies have been undertaken to examine the migration patterns of herniated disc material using a standard nomenclature and classification system. PURPOSE: To report migration patterns of extruded lumbar disc fragments. STUDY DESIGN: A review of magnetic resonance (MR) images. PATIENT SAMPLE: A total of 1,020 consecutive Azeri patients with symptomatic extruded lumbar intervertebral disc herniation...

STUDY DESIGN: This article comprises a review of the literature pertaining to the normal and pathological lumbar disc and the compilation of a standardized nomenclature. OBJECTIVE: To provide a resource that promotes a clear understanding of lumbar disc terminology among clinicians, radiologists, and researchers. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: The article "Nomenclature and Classification of Lumbar Disc Pathology. Recommendations of the Combined Task Forces of the North American Spine Society, American Society of Spine Radiology and American Society of Neuroradiology" was published in 2001 in Spine © Lippincott, Williams and Wilkins and formally endorsed by the 3 boards...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The CTF nomenclature had not been tested in clinical practice. The purpose of this study was to compare the reliability and diagnostic confidence in the interpretation of disk contours on lumbar 1.5T MR imaging when using the CTF and the Nordic nomenclatures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Five general radiologists from 3 hospitals blindly and independently assessed intravertebral herniations (Schmorl node) and disk contours on the lumbar MR imaging of 53 patients with low back pain, on 4 occasions...

Spine pathology is ubiquitous and is encountered by nearly all medical specialties. The anatomy of the spine is complex, but the language used to describe pathology may be even more complex. Many of the common references differ in their nomenclature used to report intervertebral disk herniation. This article summarizes and relates the standard recommendations for reporting terminology in regard to herniation of the intervertebral disk. This standard reporting terminology may be used with CT or MR imaging and is useful to report the location and size of the disk herniation...

PURPOSE: To determine the intra- and interobserver reliability in grading disc and muscle parameters using low-field magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). MATERIAL AND METHODS: MRI scans of 100 subjects representative of the general population were evaluated blindly by two radiologists. Criteria for grading lumbar discs were based on the spinal nomenclature of the Combined Task Force and the literature. Consensus in rating was achieved by evaluating 50 MRI examinations in tandem...

Spontaneous regression of lumbar disk herniation in patients who did not undergo surgery nor interventional therapy is reported in up to 70% of cases; however, no perspective study has clarified the possible predictive signs of a positive evolution. Aim of our study was to search for plan and contrast enhancement MRI signs able to define disk-herniation resolution. We enrolled 64 patients, affected by 72 lumbar disk herniations as per the classification proposed by the American Society of Neuroradiology (Nomenclature and Classification of Lumbar Disk Pathology 2001)...

STUDY DESIGN: A retrospective case study of patients with intraspinal cyst having a distinct connection with the corresponding intervertebral disc. OBJECTIVES: To propose a new clinical entity, "discal cyst," by clarifying the clinical, radiographic, and histologic aspects of the disease. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Several types of intraspinal cysts with different pathogenesis, causing symptoms indistinguishable from those of lumbar disc herniation, have been reported, such as perineural cysts, synovial cysts, and ganglion cysts...
