[Influence of needle-pricking bleeding combined with pulling-rotating manipulation on blood rheology in patients with vertebral artery type cervical spondylosis]. To observe the effect of needle-pricking bleeding combined with pulling-rotating manipulation and simple manipulation on blood rheology in vertebral artery type cervical spondylosis (VATCS) patients, so as to analyze their mechanisms in relieving VATCS.A total of 198 VATCS patients were randomly divided into treatment group (n=101

262. Analysis on the effect of acupuncture in treating cervical spondylosis with different syndrome types. (PubMed)

Analysis on the effect of acupuncture in treating cervical spondylosis with different syndrome types. To observe the clinical effect of acupuncture in treating cervical spondylosis with different syndrome types.One hundred and seventeen patients were randomized into the treated group: (59 cases), treated with normal acupuncture, and the control group (58 cases), treated with sham acupuncture, operated once every other day, 9 times in total (in 18 days) as one therapeutic course (...) in the 3rd month of follow-up. Multivariate analysis showed the difference was of statistical significance (P<0.05). However, the analysis through lead-in of syndrome type as an individual influencing factor showed that syndrome type exerts a significant influence on VAS score (P<0.05), but has insignificant influence on the NPQ score (P>0.05).Acupuncture shows: good immediate effect in treating cervical spondylosis, but its long-term effect is not satisfactory. The difference in syndrome type may have

263. Clinical research on treatment of vertebroarterial type of cervical spondylosis with 5-step manipulation and traction. (PubMed)

Clinical research on treatment of vertebroarterial type of cervical spondylosis with 5-step manipulation and traction. To observe the therapeutic effect of 5-step manipulation and traction of cervical vertebrae on vertebroarterial type of cervical spondylosis and probe its mechanism.The 120 patients were randomly divided into a treatment group (manipulation group) and a control group (traction group) with 60 cases in each. The curative effects in the two groups were evaluated after (...) treatment.The curative rate and the total effective rate is 26.7% and 93.4% respectively in the treatment group, and 13.3% and 86.7% respectively in the control group, with statistical significance in the total effective rate of the two groups (P < 0.05).Manipulation and traction of cervical vertebrae can effectively improve the clinical symptoms of vetebroarterical type of cervical spondylosis with a good therapeutic effect.

264. The Dynamic Functional Nucleus is a Potential Biomarker for Structural Degeneration in Cervical Spine Discs. (PubMed)

, that is, the disc region that underwent little to no additional compression during dynamic movements. The size and location of the dynamic functional nucleus was determined for 10 C5/C6 spondylosis patients, 10 C5/C6/C7 spondylosis patients, and 10 asymptomatic controls. The dynamic functional nucleus size was sensitive (significantly smaller than controls in 5 of 6 measurements at the diseased disc) and specific (no difference from controls in 9 of 10 measurements at non-diseased discs) to pathologic disc

A comparative study for the usage of Fidji cervical cages after multilevel anterior cervical discectomy and fusion. Postoperative dysphagia is one major concern in the treatment for patients with cervical spine spondylosis by using anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) with plating and cage system.To evaluate the influence of two types of surgery for multilevel cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) on postoperative dysphagia, namely ACDF with cage alone (ACDF-CA) using Fidji cervical

Outcomes of posterior cervical fusion and decompression: a systematic review and meta-analysis. Posterior cervical fusion (PCF) with decompression is a treatment option for patients with conditions such as spondylosis, spinal stenosis, and degenerative disc disorders that result in myelopathy or radiculopathy. The annual rate, number, and cost of PCF in the United States has increased. Far fewer studies have been published on PCF outcomes than on anterior cervical fusion (ACF) outcomes, most

Post-surgical thoracic spinal cord herniation following an unrepaired dural defect: a rare complication. Surgery for ossification of the ligamentum flavum (OLF) comes with a relatively high risk of dural tear. We report a 50-year-old woman, who presented with symptomatic spinal stenosis from OLF at T11-T12 and lower lumbar spondylosis for which a single stage posterior decompression and instrumented fusion of both sites was done. Removal of the OLF resulted in a small dural tear with intact
