Disease relevance of Discitis


High impact information on Discitis


Chemical compound and disease context of Discitis


Anatomical context of Discitis

  • The SFA stent-graft occlusion required femoropopliteal bypass; the abscess and spondylodiskitis that had developed in the T12 and L1 vertebrae responded to intravenous antibiotics [16].
  • The diagnosis of spondylodiscitis after lumbar disc surgery has been based so far on clinical abnormalities, non-specific changes in chemical laboratory parameters [erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C-reactive protein (CRP)] and radiological examinations such as MRI [17].
