Spinal stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal by a combination of bone and soft tissues, which can lead to mechanical compression of spinal nerve roots or the dural sac. The lumbal spinal compression of these nerve roots can be symptomatic, resulting in weakness, reflex alterations, gait disturbances, bowel or bladder dysfunction, motor and sensory changes, radicular pain or atypical leg pain and neurogenic claudication. The anatomical presence of spinal canal stenosis is confirmed radiologically with computerized tomography, myelography or magnetic resonance imaging and play a decisive role in optimal patient-oriented therapy decision-making...

Osteoporotic fragility fractures of the femoral neck are the most common type of fractures in the elderly and are associated with a high mortality. Most frequently these fractures are due to falls but spontaneous onset has also been described. In these patients the insufficient quantity and quality of the osteoporotic bone finally leads to the development of a fragility or insufficiency fracture. In some cases of nondisplaced insufficiency fractures the diagnosis cannot be established by conventional radiographs alone and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), single proton emission computed tomography (SPECT) or SPECT/CT are considered as diagnostic adjuncts...

UNLABELLED: Spinal column infection (vertebral osteomyelitis, discitis, epidural empyema/ abscess) is a rare condition, albeit its incidence has been increasing in recent years. Staphylococcus aureus is the most frequent pathogen. The routes of infection are predominantly hematogenous. Any delay in making correct diagnosis increases risk of adverse outcome of the patient. The authors present 3 case reports of patients with diabetic foot syndrome, who were diagnosed with spondylodicitis in the period of 2009- 2012, two patients had associated epidural empyema...

INTRODUCTION: Degenerative spondylolisthesis (DS) is a common cause of lumbal and lumbosacral pain as well as radicular pain. Retention and fusion is a good treatment option. Some patients have a symptomatic adjacent degenerative disc disease (DDD) in addition to DS. In these cases the adjacent segments should be fused as well. There are different techniques of fusion available, such as posterior with instrumentation or additional anterior support. This study evaluated results of transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) in patients with monosegmental DS and adjacent DDD...

We report a case of primary diffuse leptomeningeal gliomatosis (PDLG) in a 76-year-old male presenting with confusion, dysarthria, diplopia, lumbal pain and headaches of recent onset. Neurological examination revealed nuchal rigidity and bilateral sixth cranial nerve palsy. The cerebrospinal fluid showed a marked hyperproteinorachia (4711 mg/L) and mild cytorachia (5-10 leucocytes/mm3) with a few atypical lymphoid cells. On admission, brain CT scan and MRI demonstrated diffuse and nodular leptomeningeal contrast enhancement predominant at the skull base and several osteolytic lesions in the right parietal bone...

A two-year-old patient was diagnosed with arthrogryposis because of inflected knees (15-20 degrees) and stiff hamstrings. All joints and reflexes were normal. Activities were described as age-appropriate, but the patient walked with inflected knees and increased lumbal lordosis. Physiotherapy and botox did not improve the condition. Because of pain and hampered activities, the patient - now aged 11 years - was treated with musculoskeletal medicine. After treatment the patient could walk normally without pain and stand with stretched knees...

There is a growing evidence that chemokines and their receptors play a role in inducing and maintaining neuropathic pain. In the present study, unilateral chronic constriction injury (CCI) of rat sciatic nerve under aseptic conditions was used to investigate changes for stromal derived factor-1 (SDF1) and its CXCR4 receptor in lumbal (L4-L5) and cervical (C7-C8) dorsal root ganglia (DRG) from both sides of naïve, CCI-operated and sham-operated rats. All CCI-operated rats displayed mechanical allodynia and thermal hyperalgesia in hind paws ipsilateral to CCI, but forepaws exhibited only temporal changes of sensitivity not correlated with alterations in SDF1 and CXCR4 proteins...
