1263. Inverse relation between osteoporosis and spondylosis in postmenopausal women as evaluated by bone mineral density and semiquantitative scoring of spinal degeneration. (Abstract)

Inverse relation between osteoporosis and spondylosis in postmenopausal women as evaluated by bone mineral density and semiquantitative scoring of spinal degeneration. The relation between bone mineral density and severity of spondylosis was evaluated in postmenopausal women.To examine the possible inverse relation between osteoporosis and spondylosis by evaluating the association between bone mineral density and osteophyte formation or intervertebral disc narrowing using a semiquantitative (...) scoring system.The literature contains studies demonstrating an inverse relation between osteoporosis and spondylosis as well as those documenting insufficient support for such a relation. However, in these studies, only limited-range grading systems (e.g., Grades 1-4) were used to evaluate the severity of spondylosis.In this study, 104 postmenopausal women older than 60 years underwent bone mineral density measurement of the lumbar spine (anteroposterior, lateral, and midlateral) and proximal femur

1264. Partial corpectomy for cervical spondylosis. (Abstract)

Partial corpectomy for cervical spondylosis. A retrospective review was performed of a single surgeon's experience with partial corpectomy over a 9-year period. The measures evaluated included fusion rate, complications, and neurologic symptoms.To demonstrate the safety and efficacy of partial corpectomy for multilevel cervical spondylosis.Strategies for the surgical management of cervical spondylosis have included laminectomy, multilevel corpectomy, and multilevel discectomy. All have (...) for multilevel cervical spondylosis from 1991 to June 1999 were reviewed for the number of levels decompressed, graft source, use of plating, fusion success, and neurologic status.Most of the patients (n = 97) were managed with two-level discectomies, with 42 requiring treatment of three levels and 5 requiring treatment of four or more levels. Allograft was used in 60%. The remainder received iliac crest bone graft. The majority (81%) were plated. Of the cases with 2-year follow-up evaluation, the fusion

1265. Electrical stimulation of the motor tracts in cervical spondylosis. Full Text available with Trip Pro

Electrical stimulation of the motor tracts in cervical spondylosis. Motor action potentials evoked by percutaneous electrical stimulation of the scalp and of the cervical (or lumbar) vertebral region were recorded from the biceps, thenar and tibialis anterior muscles in 30 patients with cervical spondylosis. Twelve normal controls were matched for age and height. Abnormalities of central motor conduction (absence or increased central delay of cortical responses) for at least one muscle were (...) spondylosis.

1266. Treatment of cervical spondylosis. Electroacupuncture versus physiotherapy. (Abstract)

Treatment of cervical spondylosis. Electroacupuncture versus physiotherapy. A prospective, controlled clinical trial was undertaken to assess the relative efficacies of physiotherapy and electroacupuncture in the treatment of cervical spondylosis. The results suggested that, while both methods were effective, electroacupuncture produced an earlier symptomatic improvement with increased neck movement, especially in patients with mild degenerative changes of the cervical spine.

1267. [Benoxaprofen in the treatment of spondylosis and spondylarthrosis (author's transl)]. (Abstract)

[Benoxaprofen in the treatment of spondylosis and spondylarthrosis (author's transl)]. An open clinical trial of 4 weeks included 32 patients with spondylosis and spondylarthrosis diagnosed on the average about 10 years previously. The non-steroid antirheumatic benoxaprofen was used alone in a dosage of a 1 x 600 mg tablet daily. The treatment had a marked influence on the clinical picture in the form of reduction of the pain at the beginning of movement, and of pains at night or on pressure

1268. The Cochrane review of surgery for lumbar disc prolapse and degenerative lumbar spondylosis. (Abstract)

The Cochrane review of surgery for lumbar disc prolapse and degenerative lumbar spondylosis. A Cochrane review of randomized controlled trials.To collate the scientific evidence on surgical management for lumbar-disc prolapse and degenerative lumbar spondylosis.Surgical investigations and interventions account for as much as one third of the health care costs for spinal disorders, but the scientific evidence for most procedures still is unclear.A highly sensitive search strategy identified all (...) published randomized controlled trials. Cochrane methodology was used for meta-analysis of the results.Twenty-six randomized controlled trials of surgery for lumbar disc prolapse and 14 trials of surgery for degenerative lumbar spondylosis were identified. Methodologic weaknesses were found in many of the trials. Only one trial directly compared discectomy and conservative management. Meta-analyses showed that surgical discectomy produces better clinical outcomes than chemonucleolysis, which is better

1269. The biological factors in the etiopathogenesis and management of cervical spondylosis. (Abstract)

The biological factors in the etiopathogenesis and management of cervical spondylosis. Two hundred cases of cervical spondylosis were studied for 1 to 4 average (2 1/2) years. No co-relation could be established between the clinical features and the radiological findings in these cases. It was found that parasites play an important role in the multifactorial etiology of this condition and their eradication by deworming drugs gives better results than the traditional therapies.

1270. Effects of cervical traction and exercise therapy in cervical spondylosis. (Abstract)

Effects of cervical traction and exercise therapy in cervical spondylosis. A randomised clinical trial was conducted in the Department of Physical Medicine, Chittagong Medical College Hospital from July, 2001 to June, 2002. The objectives of the study were to find out the effects of cervical traction (CT) and exercise on the patients with chronic cervical spondylosis. A total of 199 patients with cervical spondylosis were included in the clinical trial. One hundred patients were treated (...) with cervical traction plus exercise and 99 patients were treated with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID). Posture correction advice was given to all patients. The patients were treated for 6 weeks. There was a marked improvement in both the groups after treatment (P<0.001). But there was nearly significant difference regarding improvement in treatment with CT plus exercise than with NSAID (P = 0.06). The results indicate that the improvement of the patients with chronic cervical spondylosis

1271. Comparison between the analgesic and therapeutic effects of a musically modulated electromagnetic field (TAMMEF) and those of a 100 Hz electromagnetic field: blind experiment on patients suffering from cervical spondylosis or shoulder periarthritis. (Abstract)

Comparison between the analgesic and therapeutic effects of a musically modulated electromagnetic field (TAMMEF) and those of a 100 Hz electromagnetic field: blind experiment on patients suffering from cervical spondylosis or shoulder periarthritis. The analgesic-therapeutic efficacy and tolerability of a low-frequency electromagnetic field (ELF), modulated at a frequency of 100 Hz with a sinusoidal waveform and mean induction of a few gauss, has been demonstrated by the authors in numerous (...) spondylosis (101 cases) or shoulder periarthritis (49 cases). Unbeknownst to them, they were randomly divided into three groups of 50 subjects. One group was exposed to the new TAMMEF, another group to the usual ELF, and the third group to simulated treatment. The results show that the effects of the new TAMMEF therapy are equivalent to those obtained with the ELF.
