1. An evaluation of the effectiveness of acupuncture with seven acupoint-penetrating needles on cervical spondylosis

An evaluation of the effectiveness of acupuncture with seven acupoint-penetrating needles on cervical spondylosis Objective: To investigate the clinical efficacy of acupuncture with seven acupoint-penetrating needles on patients with cervical spondylosis. Patients and methods: Sixty patients with cervical spondylosis were grouped using computer-generated random numbers. Group A (n=30) received acupuncture with seven acupoint-penetrating needles combined with traction. Group B (n=30) received (...) , the NDI and PSQI scores of group A were significantly lower than those in group B (P<0.05). Conclusion: Acupuncture using seven acupoint-penetrating needles combined with traction was more effective, reduced neck pain, and improved sleep quality in patients with cervical spondylosis compared to acupuncture of non-relevant acupuncture points.

2. Spondylosis deformans as an indicator of transport activities in archaeological dogs: A systematic evaluation of current methods for assessing archaeological specimens. (PubMed)

Spondylosis deformans as an indicator of transport activities in archaeological dogs: A systematic evaluation of current methods for assessing archaeological specimens. Over the past several decades archaeologists have used the spinal pathology spondylosis deformans as an indicator that archaeological dogs were used to pull or carry loads. This interpretive approach is largely based upon observations of prehistoric dog remains and archaeologist's interpretations of veterinary literature (...) on recent sled dogs and other draft animals. However, no comparative large-scale studies of the occurrence of spondylosis deformans in wild canids, transport dogs, and dogs never involved in pulling or carrying loads have been published. To evaluate the reliability of spondylosis deformans in archaeological dogs as an indicator of participation in transport activities, 136 modern non-transport dogs, 19 sled dogs, and 241 wolves were systematically analyzed for the occurrence of spondylosis deformans

3. Surgical treatment of cervical spondylosis in patients 80 years of age and older-A retrospective observational study. (PubMed)

Surgical treatment of cervical spondylosis in patients 80 years of age and older-A retrospective observational study. The older adult population in developed countries is rapidly increasing, as is the number of older adults with cervical spondylosis. Previous studies on the surgical outcomes of older adults with cervical spondylosis have reported contradictory results. This study aimed to compare the surgical outcomes in adults with cervical spondylosis who were <80 and ≥80 years old. We (...) retrospectively investigated data from adults who underwent surgical treatment for cervical spondylosis between 2006 and 2016. The clinical outcomes and postoperative complications of patients who were <80 years old were compared to those of patients who were ≥80 years old. Of the 108 patients included in the study, 14 (13.0%) were ≥80 years old. The preoperative neurosurgical cervical spine score was significantly different between patients who were <80 (9.1 ± 2.4) and ≥80 (6.1 ± 2.1) years old (p < .001

4. Abnormal central motor conduction at the upper but not lower limbs correlates with severe cervical spondylosis: discussion of an unexpected observation (PubMed)

Abnormal central motor conduction at the upper but not lower limbs correlates with severe cervical spondylosis: discussion of an unexpected observation A novel pattern of transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) abnormalities in cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) comprising abnormal central motor conduction time (CMCT) to the upper limbs and normal CMCT to the lower limbs was observed. CSM was more severe radiologically and tended to be more severe clinically when this pattern (...) was encountered.To further characterize this observation, 414 consecutive TMS evaluations of cervical spondylosis were reviewed. Those cases in which (a) CMCT was abnormal at the upper and (b) normal at the lower limbs and (c) a cervical spine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was available (ULabnormal group) were included for further analysis. Cases where CMCT was abnormal at the lower limbs only (LLabnormal) were used for comparison. MRI-measured sagittal and parasagittal diameters of the spinal canal at all

8. Anterior neck soft tissue thickness for airway evaluation measured by MRI in patients with cervical spondylosis: prospective cohort study. (PubMed)

Anterior neck soft tissue thickness for airway evaluation measured by MRI in patients with cervical spondylosis: prospective cohort study. Anterior neck soft tissue thickness, usually measured by ultrasound, is increasingly being investigated to predict difficult laryngoscopy, but the results have not been validated. Considering the conflicting measurement data, different measuring body positions and lack of a standard ultrasound procedure, we used MRI to verify the efficacy of these popular (...) predictive value (p>0.05).The five most commonly studied ultrasonographic indicators of anterior soft tissue thickness appeared unreliable to predict difficult laryngoscopy in patients with cervical spondylosis. Further study is needed to validate the most valuable indicator to predict difficult laryngoscopy.ChiCTRROC-16008598; Pre-results.© Author(s) (or their employer(s)) 2019.

13. Radiologic indicators for prediction of difficult laryngoscopy in patients with cervical spondylosis. (PubMed)

Radiologic indicators for prediction of difficult laryngoscopy in patients with cervical spondylosis. We identified the most useful variables for prediction of difficult laryngoscopy in patients with cervical spondylosis according to physical indicators and preoperative skeletal X-ray and soft tissue MRI measurements. We hypothesized that there was a closer association between difficult laryngoscopy and radiologic indicators.We randomly enroled 315 patients undergoing elective cervical spine (...) tooth (0.802, P > 0.05) and that of modified Mallampati test (0.602, P < 0.05).Distance from the highest point of the hyoid bone to the mandibular body appears to be the most accurate indicator for difficult laryngoscopy in patients with cervical spondylosis.© 2018 The Authors.
