Spondylosis deformans as an indicator of transport activities in archaeological dogs: A systematic evaluation of current methods for assessing archaeological specimens.

PLoS One 2019 17;14(4):e0214575. Epub 2019 Apr 17.

Department of Anthropology, University of Alberta, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.

Over the past several decades archaeologists have used the spinal pathology spondylosis deformans as an indicator that archaeological dogs were used to pull or carry loads. This interpretive approach is largely based upon observations of prehistoric dog remains and archaeologist's interpretations of veterinary literature on recent sled dogs and other draft animals. However, no comparative large-scale studies of the occurrence of spondylosis deformans in wild canids, transport dogs, and dogs never involved in pulling or carrying loads have been published.

Laminoplasty for Cervical Spinal Cord Stimulator Implantation in Patients With Cervical Spondylosis and Fusion: A Technical Note.

Ochsner J 2019 ;19(1):38-42

Department of Neurosurgery, University of California, Los Angeles, CA.

Epidural spinal cord stimulator (SCS) implantation is a commonly used strategy for treating refractory neuropathic pain, but the literature on the technical aspects of cervical SCS surgery remains scarce. Degenerative cervical stenosis and prior fusion surgery are relatively frequent conditions in this population, and the optimal method for cervical lead placement among such patients has not been established. Decompressive laminectomy may be required for cervical SCS placement in the presence of spinal stenosis. Read More

Dynamic Cervical Cord Compression Post-laminectomy Visualized by Flexion-extension Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Case Report.

Cureus 2019 Jan 14;11(1):e3878. Epub 2019 Jan 14.

Neurosurgery, The Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, New York, USA.

Flexion-extension magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in the cervical spine is not universally used in cervical spine surgery. However, flexion-extension MRIs can identify previously undetected spinal stenosis, improve surgical decision-making, and maybe a better tool to evaluate postoperative outcomes. One uncommon complication after laminectomy, to treat cervical spinal stenosis, is muscle weakness due to subsequent dynamic cord compression by posterior paraspinal musculature. Read More

Percutaneous Endoscopic Transforaminal Approach for Far Lateral Lumbar Discectomy: 2-Dimensional Operative Video.

Oper Neurosurg (Hagerstown) 2019 Mar 19. Epub 2019 Mar 19.

Department of Neurosurgery, Nanoori Incheon Hospital, Incheon, Republic of Korea.

The conventional surgical approach to far lateral lumbar disk herniations is a paraspinal Wiltse approach. During the Wiltse approach, it is sometimes necessary to resect some of the facet or pars interarticularis to achieve an adequate exposure. The endoscopic transforaminal route can be of benefit in far lateral disk herniations due to direct access to the epidural space through Kambin's triangle, without the need for any bony removal or nerve retraction.

Department of Neurosurgery, School of Medicine, National Yang-Ming University, Taipei 11221, Taiwan.

Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is the standard surgical management for disc herniation and spondylosis worldwide and reportedly performed with short hospitalization and early discharge (ED). However, it is unknown if ED improves the outcomes of ACDF including among older adults. This cohort study included patients who underwent ACDF surgery in Taiwan over two years analyzed in two groups: the ED group (discharged within 48 hours), and the comparison group (hospitalized for more than 48 h).

Dynamic functional nucleus is a potential biomarker for structural degeneration in cervical spine discs.

J Orthop Res 2019 Apr 28;37(4):965-971. Epub 2019 Feb 28.

Department of Orthopedic Surgery, University of Pittsburgh, 3820 South Water Street, Pittsburgh, 15203, Pennsylvania.

If intervertebral disc degeneration can be identified early, preventative treatments may be initiated before symptoms become disabling and costly. Changes in disc mechanics, such as the decrease in the compressive modulus of the nucleus, are some of the earliest signs of degeneration. Therefore, in vivo changes in the disc response to compressive load may serve as a biomarker for pending or early disc degeneration. Read More
