OBJECTIVE: To compare the clinical effect between spinal card decompression combined with traditional Chinese medicine and simple spinal card decompression for cervical spondylotic myelopathy. METHODS: From June 2012 to June 2015, 73 patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy were treated, including 42 males and 31 females, aged from 29 to 73 years old with a mean of 50.9 years old. The patients were divided into the simple operation group (34 cases) and the operation combined with traditional Chinese medicine group(39 cases) according to the idea of themselves...

BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to analyze the clinical features and to evaluate the efficacy of anterior partial corpectomy and titanium mesh fusion and internal fixation of old fracture dislocation of the lower cervical spine. MATERIAL AND METHODS We retrospectively analyzed the clinical data of 52 patients with old lower cervical fracture and dislocation treated with anterior partial corpectomy and titanium mesh fusion fixation between January 2008 and December 2013, with a mean follow-up period of 4...

Spinal cord injury (SCI) during revision surgery for persistent multilevel cervical myelopathy (MCM) after an initial anterior procedure is rare. However, the pathophysiology of MCM, even prior to surgery, is a risk-factor for neurological deterioration due to the development of a "sick cord", which reflects pathological changes in the spinal cord that lower the threshold for injury. We report a case of persistent MCM despite a three-level ACDF and corpectomy who developed an incomplete C6 tetraplegia during revision cervical laminectomy and posterior instrumentation...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Brown-Séquard syndrome is characterized by a hemisection of the spinal cord most commonly after spinal trauma or neoplastic disease. The injury causes ipsilateral hemiplegia and proprioceptive sensory disturbances with contralateral loss of pain and temperature sensation. Patients with Brown-Séquard syndrome have the best prognosis of all spinal cord injury patterns. At this time, the ideal management for Brown-Séquard syndrome after penetrating trauma has yet to be defined...

OBJECTIVE: To report three cases of transient paralysis shortly after (within 4 hours) anterior cervical corpectomy and fusion (ACCF), and investigate the possible causes. METHODS: Clinical and radiological data of three cases (two men and one woman, aged 41-61 years) were analyzed retrospectively. All three patients underwent ACCF for cervical spondylotic myelopathy. The decompressed segments were located in C(5) , C(6) and C(5) + C(6-7) discs, respectively. Paralysis occurred from 30 minutes to 4 hours after surgery...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the rate of open reduction and surgical strategy of severe cervical dislocation. METHODS: From March 2001 to March 2006, the data of 92 cases of cervical dislocation over 1/2 were retrospectively studied. Garden Well traction with 1 - 3 kg weight were performed before operation. The patients were performed with diskectomy and reduction with anterior approach initially, for those that can not be reduced, corpectomy were performed and reduction procedures were repeated...

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: There is no standard timing of the spinal cord decompression. Experimental animal models and clinical investigations on Methylprednisolone (NASCIS-2 and -3) indicate that the time up to 8 hours is the optimal therapeutic window for the early spinal cord decompression. We accepted this time window in our practice. A retrospective clinical evaluation of the early (up to 8 hours) operative decompression of the injured cervical spinal cord was undertaken. MATERIAL AND METHODS: The early operative decompression (range of 2-8 hours) of the cervical spinal cord was done in 32 patients (82% of operated cervical spinal cord injured patients)...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Strut graft fusion after corpectomy is frequently indicated for certain pathologies in the cervical spine. The "key-hole" technique and "dove-tail" technique are the popular methods used to insert the strut graft at present. Segmental collapse secondary to seating of the graft on cancellous bone and cord injury from placement or dislodgement the graft are our concerns. Our method was designed to solve these possible problems without affecting the arthrodesis. PURPOSE: To evaluate the results of this method that allows the graft to seat on both the hard end plate and cancellous bone of the upper and lower contacting vertebrae in a easy and safe way after varying levels of corpectomy in the cervical spine...

Atlantooccipital dislocation (AOD) is a rare and usually fatal injury. In the current study, the authors reported an extremely rare case of posterior AOD with Jefferson fracture and fracture-dislocation of C6-C7. The patient survived the injury and had only incomplete quadriplegia below the C7 segment with anterior cord syndrome. He was successfully managed with in situ occipitocervical fusion using the Cotrel-Dubousset rod system, corpectomy of C6, and anterior interbody fusion of C5-C7 with plating. To our knowledge, this is the first report of posterior AOD with two other non-contiguous cervical spine injuries...

The authors present a case report of a patient with cervical central spinal cord syndrome caused by a hyperextension injury after a motor vehicle collision in which the air bag deployed in the absence of shoulder or lap belt harnesses. The potential for cervical spine and spinal cord hyperextension injuries in passengers positioned in front of air bags without proper use of shoulder or lap belt harnesses is discussed. Cervical central spinal cord quadriplegia occurred with cervical spondylosis and kyphosis that was managed by early three-level cervical corpectomy in a 58-year-old patient...

STUDY DESIGN: This study reviewed 36 retrospective patients who underwent surgeries for rare cervico-thoracic junctional problems. OBJECTIVES: The authors review cervico-thoracic junctional disorders and study diagnostic methods, surgical approaches, surgical outcomes, and associated complications. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: The literature is sparse on cervico-thoracic junctional problems. This paper is the largest series to date on this subject...
