STUDY DESIGN: Randomized complete block animal spinal implant infection model with internal control. OBJECTIVE: To develop a spinal implant animal infection model to simulate postoperative gram-negative wound infection. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Implant-associated surgical site infections (SSI) remain a dreaded complication of spinal surgery. Currently, over 30% of all spine SSIs are secondary to gram-negative bacteria. Traditional animal models have utilized gram-positive inoculums to simulate postoperative infection, but there exists no model in the literature for gram-negative infection in the setting of spinal instrumentation...

Gout is a common metabolic disorder typically diagnosed in peripheral joints. Tophaceous deposits in the lumbar spine is a very rare condition with very few cases reported in the literature. We present a case of tophaceous gout that originated in the lumbar spine in a patient with normal uric acid blood levels. The following case report concerns a 52-year-old patient with low back pain, left sciatica and numbness in the left leg. Serum uric acid levels were within normal range. MRI and bone scan images suggested an inflammatory-infectious process focussed at L4...

We present a case of apparently uncomplicated lumbar decompression and discectomy with delayed postoperative neurological deterioration secondary to subdural hematoma at the thoracolumbar level of the spinal cord. Previously described subdural hematomas have occurred spontaneously or related to iatrogenic injury. Hitherto, no case of acute postoperative subdural hematoma has been reported in the postoperative setting in the absence of known iatrogenic dural injury. A 76-year-old male with central and lateral recess spinal stenosis underwent apparently uncomplicated bilateral L3-4 and left sided L4-5 decompressive partial laminectomies and discectomy...

BACKGROUND: Secondary damage is often more important in determining the functional outcome and provides a practical target for therapeutic intervention. Rosiglitazone (ROSG) is a potent PPAR-γ agonist and has been shown to induce neuroprotection in animal models of spinal cord injury (SCI). However, it is still unclear whether this PPAR-γ agonist can mediate neuronal autophagy after SCI. METHODS: SCI was induced by application of vascular clips (force of 24g) to the dura via a four-level T5-T8 laminectomy...

Postoperative visual loss is a rare and devastating complication. The estimated incidence is 0.01-1% after non ocular surgery. It has been reported after spine, cardiac and head and neck surgeries. We report a patient who was operated for cervical laminectomy in prone position and complained of loss of vision in one eye postoperatively. He was thoroughly investigated after visual loss. The case was diagnosed as central retinal artery occlusion (CRAO) of the left eye. Here we consider the potential etiological factors causing this unilateral loss of vision and try to suggest strategies to reduce the incidence of the complication in spinal surgery...

The authors describe the case of a 40-year-old man suffering from an epidural abscess in the thoracic spine due to a rarely isolated pathogen, Streptobacillus moniliformis, the causative agent of rat bite fever. Besides diffuse abdominal pain, ataxia, paresthesia, hypesthesia, and enhanced reflexes of the lower extremities, the patient suffered from a decreased sensation of bladder filling. His history was also positive for a rat bite 6 weeks earlier. Magnetic resonance imaging showed an epidural, space-occupying lesion compressing the spinal cord at the vertebral levels of T6-8...

Post-operative C5palsies are among the most common complications seen after cervical surgery for ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL). Although C5 palsy is a well-known complication of cervical spine surgery, its pathogenesis is poorly understood and depends on many other factors. In this study, a finite element model of the cervical spine and spinal cord-nerve roots complex structures was developed. The changes in stress in the cord and nerve roots, posterior shift of the spinal cord, and displacement and elongation of the nerve roots after laminectomy for cervical OPLL were analyzed for three different cervical sagittal alignments (lordosis, straight, and kyphosis)...

Retained surgical sponge is an uncommon complication after laminectomy. A 67-year-old male presented with a discharging sinus in the cervical region following cervical laminectomy. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed bilateral symmetrical lesions in the paraspinal area. Re-exploration revealed gauze pieces on either side under the muscle. Persistent discharging wound after surgery should arouse the possibility of a foreign body. Because of the rarity of bilateral lesions, the present case is being reported...

Various biomimetic scaffolds with hierarchical micro/nanostructures are designed to closely mimic native extracellular matrix network and to guide cell behavior to promote structural tissue generation. However, it remains a challenge to fabricate hierarchical micro/nanoscaled fibrous scaffolds with different functional components that endow the scaffolds with both biochemical and physical features to exert different biological roles during the process of tissue healing. In this study, a biomimetic designed micro/nanoscaled scaffold with integrated hierarchical dual fibrillar components is fabricated in order to repair dura mater and prevent the formation of epidural scars via collagen molecule self-assembly, electrospinning, and biological interface crosslinking strategies...
