181. Blunt multifocal aortic injury with abdominal aortic intimointimal intussusception Full Text available with Trip Pro

Blunt multifocal aortic injury with abdominal aortic intimointimal intussusception Blunt abdominal aortic injury is an infrequent occurrence after blunt trauma. The majority of these injuries result from deceleration forces sustained in motor vehicle collisions. Effects of these forces on the thoracic aorta are well described, but associated spinal compression or distraction can also lead to injury of the affixed abdominal aorta. We present a case of multifocal blunt thoracic and abdominal (...) aortic injury with circumferential abdominal aortic dissection, resulting in aortoaortic intussusception associated with a thoracolumbar spinal injury. The unique diagnostic challenge and subsequent successful endovascular management of a rare nonocclusive abdominal aortic intussusception are herein discussed.

traumatic thoracolumbar spinal cord injury with spastic paraplegia is associated with increased walking capacity. Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase Spinal Cord Injuries Device: LION procedure Device: NMES Not Applicable Detailed Description: Sustaining a spinal cord injury impacts the mental and physical wellbeing of the injured individuals profoundly; quality of life suffers and subsequently the risk of suicide is greatly increased as compared to the general population. While spinal (...) capable of voluntary stepping. The primary objective of this randomized clinical trial is therefore to investigate whether the LION procedure and the subsequent neurostimulation in individuals with chronic traumatic thoracolumbar spinal cord injury with spastic paraplegia is associated with increased walking capacity.

data are not available for supporting each.We included 70 paratroopers with stable thoracolumbar fractures (A1 and A2 classification according to AOSpine thoracolumbar spine injury classification system) presenting <60 days after trauma and hyperintensity in T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging. Old fractures and those requiring fixation were excluded. Patients were randomly assigned to 2 study groups to undergo percutaneous balloon kyphoplasty (n=34) or conservative care (n=36) by applying (...)

Pharmacologic prophylaxis was recommended (...) Table format ( ). Supporting references included 4 evidence-based reviews on VTE prophylaxis and treatment in a variety of patient populations.

weeks. Early discontinuation of external immobilization is recommended for patients who become asymptomatic and in whom spinal stability is confirmed with flexion and extension radiographs. Avoidance of “high-risk” activities for up to 6 months following SCIWORA is recommended. RATIONALE Diagnosis Pang and Wilberger defined the term spinal cord injury without radiographic abnormality (SCIWORA) in 1982 as “objective signs of myelopathy as a result of trauma” with no evidence of fracture (...) or ligamentous instability on plain spine radiographs and tomography. The definition specifically excluded all magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) findings and any injuries from penetrating trauma, electric shock, and obstetrical complications and those associated with congenital spinal anomalies. Although many practitioners may consider this diagnostic terminology anachronistic in light of the current near-universal availability of MRI, pediatric neurosurgeons continue to refer to this predominantly pediatric

there was signal change on T2 weighted MR images of the spinal cord in these patients. Kato et al identified 127 trauma patients with cervical spinal cord injuries without bony injury on plain films or computed tomography. The incidence of ATCCS without bony injury was 32.2%. High-energy mechanisms of injury were significantly more common for younger patients. Older patients had a high incidence of injury sustained from a fall. Degenerative changes in the cervical spine and spinal stenosis were identified (...) as risk factors for developing ATCCS without bony injury. The authors noted that ATCCS can occur in young adults during high energy injuries in the absence of pre-existing spinal disease. In the original necropsy descriptions of Schneider et al, , , in 5 patients with ATCCS and spinal stenosis who died between four and 38 days following trauma, the dominant pathological finding was central necrosis of the spinal cord in association with degeneration of neurons and white matter fibers.

193. The Acute Cardiopulmonary Management of Patients With Cervical Spinal Cord Injuries Full Text available with Trip Pro

spinal cord ischemia after acute injury. , , – It appears that the earlier cardiac and/or ventilatory/pulmonary dysfunction is detected, the more likely effective, often life-saving treatment can be initiated. It is for these reasons that the issues of early ICU care and cardiac and pulmonary monitoring for human patients following acute SCI have been raised. Acute traumatic SCI is frequently associated with systemic hypotension. Hypotension may be due to hypovolemia, direct severe spinal cord trauma (...) and lumbar SCI injuries had this finding. Marked bradycardia (< 45 bpm) was frequent in patients with severe cervical SCI (71%) and less common in patients with more mild cervical (12%) and thoracolumbar (4%) SCI. Sinus node slowing was profound enough to produce hemodynamic compromise and systemic hypotension necessitating bolus injections of atropine or placement of a temporary pacemaker in 29% of the severe cervical SCI patients. Episodic hypotension unrelated to hypovolemia was identified in 68
