81. [Case-control study on bone-setting manipulation for the treatment of isolated systolic hypertension combined with cervical spondylosis]. (Abstract)

[Case-control study on bone-setting manipulation for the treatment of isolated systolic hypertension combined with cervical spondylosis]. To investigate clinical effect and safety of bone-setting manipulation in treating isolated systolic hypertension combined with cervical spondylosis.From January 2012 to January 2015, 320 patients suffered from isolated systolic hypertension combined with cervical spondylosis were randomly divided into treatment group and control group. In treatment group (...) before treatment, while there was no obviously significance between two groups after treatment. The whole clinical effect in treatment group was better than control group.Bone-setting manipulation for isolated systolic hypertension combined with cervical spondylosis at early stage could receive good clinical result, and flexion top spin and lock bone-setting manipulation of cervical spine was better and safety than manipulation of reposition cervical spine by rotation.

84. The incidence of cervical spondylosis decreases with aging in the elderly, and increases with aging in the young and adult population: a hospital-based clinical analysis (Full text)

The incidence of cervical spondylosis decreases with aging in the elderly, and increases with aging in the young and adult population: a hospital-based clinical analysis Cervical spondylosis is well accepted as a common degenerative change in the cervical spine. Compelling evidence has shown that the incidence of cervical spondylosis increases with age. However, the relationship between age and the incidence of cervical spondylosis remains obscure. It is essential to note the relationship (...) between age and the incidence of cervical spondylosis through more and more clinical data.In the case-controlled study reported here, retrospective clinical analysis of 1,276 cases of cervical spondylosis has been conducted. We analyzed the general clinical data, the relationship between age and the incidence of cervical spondylosis, and the relationship between age-related risk factors and the incidence of cervical spondylosis. A chi-square test was used to analyze the associations between different

95. Subaxial cervical spine involvement in symptomatic rheumatoid arthritis patients: Comparison with cervical spondylosis. (Abstract)

Subaxial cervical spine involvement in symptomatic rheumatoid arthritis patients: Comparison with cervical spondylosis. To investigate the frequency, location, characteristics, and clinical significance of subaxial involvement (below C1-C2) in a series of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and symptomatic involvement of the cervical spine.A total of 41 patients with RA were examined via cervical spine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). A comparative analysis of the incidence (...) of the different types of subaxial lesions was performed between these patients and 41 age- and sex-matched patients with symptomatic cervical spondylosis.Stenosis of the spinal canal was found at the subaxial level in 85% of RA patients, and at the atlantoaxial level in 44%. Comparative analysis between these patients and the cervical spondylosis patients revealed significant differences in the types and frequencies of subaxial lesions. For both conditions, signs of discopathy and end-plate osteophytosis were

98. Tetraplegia after thyroidectomy in a patient with cervical spondylosis: a case report and literature review. (Full text)

Tetraplegia after thyroidectomy in a patient with cervical spondylosis: a case report and literature review. Cervical spondylosis is degeneration of the cervical spine that occurs during the normal course of aging, and may progress into compression of the spinal cord, or cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM), which can cause neurologic dysfunction. Cervical spondylosis can be identified in the majority of people older than 50 years. Many people with cervical spondylosis or CSM are asymptomatic (...) . However, patients with CSM are at higher risk of spinal cord injury (SCI) following minor injury.A 60-year-old woman with asymptomatic cervical spondylosis underwent an elective subtotal thyroidectomy for thyroid nodules. After the surgery, she developed tetraplegia. MRI revealed spinal cord compression and injury. Main diagnoses, therapeutics interventions, and outcomes: Acute cervical SCI was diagnosed. After an emergency anterior cervical corpectomy and fusion surgery, she almost completely

99. Cervical spondylosis and hypertension: a clinical study of 2 cases. (Full text)

Cervical spondylosis and hypertension: a clinical study of 2 cases. Cervical spondylosis and hypertension are all common diseases, but the relationship between them has never been studied. Patients with cervical spondylosis are often accompanied with vertigo. Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion is an effective method of treatment for cervical spondylosis with cervical vertigo that is unresponsive to conservative therapy. We report 2 patients of cervical spondylosis with concomitant cervical (...) vertigo and hypertension who were treated successfully with anterior cervical discectomy and fusion. Stimulation of sympathetic nerve fibers in pathologically degenerative disc could produce sympathetic excitation, and induce a sympathetic reflex to cause cervical vertigo and hypertension. In addition, chronic neck pain could contribute to hypertension development through sympathetic arousal and failure of normal homeostatic pain regulatory mechanisms. Cervical spondylosis may be one of the causes
