was 12%, with 56% of patients having an NDI score lower than 15%; it has been suggested that this latter NDI score serves as a cut-off value for significant neck morbidity. The NDI scores were significantly higher among female patients, patients with spondylosis, and patients having undergone further cervical surgeries during the follow-up.Long-term satisfaction with the surgery was very high, and the employment rate among patients resembled that of the general population in Finland. Thus, the long

Radiological parameters, including cervical lordosis, disc angle (DA), global and segmental ROM, disc height (DH), and complications were measured.One hundred and twenty six patients, with a total of 132 arthroplasty segments were analyzed. There were 64 patients in the small-ROM and 62 in the large-ROM group. There were more patients diagnosed with cervical spondylosis in the small-ROM than in the large-ROM group (P = 0.046). Patients in both groups had

Their heights were measured in 1983 and again in 2017. Spino-pelvic parameters were compared between measurements obtained in 1983 and 2017. Individuals with height loss were then divided into two groups, those with degenerative spondylosis and those with degenerative lumbar scoliosis, and different characteristics were compared between the two

The value of dynamic MRI in the treatment of cervical spondylotic myelopathy: a protocol for a prospective randomized clinical trial. Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is the most severe type of cervical spondylosis and the most common cause of spinal cord dysfunction among adults over 55 years old. MRI plays an important role in the diagnosis and evaluation of CSM, which can directly demonstrate the correlation between disc, spinal cord, posterior structures and abnormal signal in spinal

290. A randomised controlled trial comparing the effectiveness of surgical and nonsurgical treatment for cervical radiculopathy. Full Text available with Trip Pro

A randomised controlled trial comparing the effectiveness of surgical and nonsurgical treatment for cervical radiculopathy. Cervical radiculopathy is usually caused by disc herniation or spondylosis. The prognosis is expected to be good in most patients, but there is limited scientific evidence on the indications for nonsurgical and surgical treatments. The aim of the present study is to evaluate and compare the effectiveness of surgical and nonsurgical treatment in two trials - including disc (...) herniation and spondylosis, respectively, and to evaluate factors that contribute to better decision making.Patients with disabling radicular arm pain and MRI-proven cervical disc herniation or spondylosis will be randomised to receive nonsurgical or surgical treatment. The follow-up period is one year and the sample size is estimated to be 50 for each arm in the two trials, giving a total of 200 patients. The primary outcomes are the Neck Disability Index and arm pain. Secondary outcomes include neck

A rare case report of laryngopharyngeal polyp formation following anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) has been regarded as the "gold standard" treatment of cervical spondylosis. Though it has good outcomes, many complications still exist, such as loss of fixation, degeneration of adjacent segments, dysphagia and pharyngeal perforation. In view of current literature, this study is the first to report a case of laryngopharyngeal polyp

Clinical study on improving postoperative symptoms of cervical spondylotic myelopathy by Qishe pill. Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is the most serious type of cervical spondylosis, which is often treated surgically in patients with progressive neurological symptoms following ineffective conservative treatment. However, some patients have residual symptoms such as neck pain, stiffness, and C5 nerve palsy after surgery. The Qishe pill can effectively relieve the symptoms of neck pain

Cervical foraminal stenosis causing unilateral diaphragmatic paralysis without neurologic manifestation: A case report and review of the literature. Unilateral diaphragmatic paralysis due to cervical spondylosis has rarely been reported. We present the first case of unilateral diaphragmatic paralysis without radicular pain or motor weakness due to cervical foraminal stenosis and a review of the related literature.A 59-year-old man presented with dyspnea and fever. His chest radiograph revealed (...) right hemidiaphragmatic paralysis.The differential diagnosis of phrenic nerve palsy excluded mediastinal and neurodegenerative diseases. Imaging studies showed right foraminal stenosis caused by cervical spondylosis at C3-4 and C4-5.The patient underwent foraminotomy at C3-4 and C4-5 on the right side. The operative findings revealed a severe compression of the C4 root.At 3 months postoperatively, the unilateral diaphragmatic paralysis and dyspnea were recovered.Hemidiaphragmatic paralysis deserves

performed with consistent methodologies. Keywords , , , , , , , , , , , Introduction Cervical spinal cord compression (SCC) due to degeneration of the cervical spine is a frequent finding on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). - Degenerative changes include spondylosis, degenerative disc disease, ligamental hypertrophy, and ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament. SCC mainly occurs during later stages of life and in most cases remains asymptomatic. - Nevertheless, a subset of individuals (...) patients. Indeed, SCC and T2 hyperintensity was present in only 5.3% of individuals; a significantly lower prevalence than the rate of SCC identified in the other subgroups. Excluding these symptomatic populations from further analysis, age and study location were found to influence the prevalence of SCC. The association of SCC with increasing age is expected as cervical spondylosis is the consequence of degenerative changes of the spine. However, the association with location, and especially the fact

), have been proposed to alter the natural course of disk, leading to the LDDD. , LDDD is a spectrum of diseases, which may present as disc herniation, spondylosis, spondylolysis, spondylolisthesis, spinal stenosis, facet joint arthropathy, or their combination. In clinical practice, lumbar interbody fusion (LIF) is not only a popular operation but also a feasible treatment option for patients with LDDD who fail to respond to conservative therapy. The procedures were also implemented to treat other (...) between each 2 LIF procedures. However, the conclusion was based on highly heterogeneous results, and, for instance, I 2 in pooled complication rate between ALIF and PLIF reached 83.3%. This may be associated with the fact that the synthesis did not separate MIS surgery from open surgery and they involved diverse demographics of patients with not only LDDD but also with post discectomy syndrome, spondylosis, stenosis, and spinal deformity. Furthermore, they only pooled data from the four LIF
