High impact information on Spinal Diseases

  • These results indicate excellent safety and efficacy for use of gadoteridol in children with suspected intracranial or spinal disease [4].
  • Our data suggest that, clinically and radiographically, AAS patients with PJD have a less severe spinal disease course than those without PJD [5].
  • On stereoscopic examination of the lumbar spines of 6 patients with rheumatoid arthritis and spinal disease we found typical rheumatoid erosions in the apophyseal joints [6].
  • Epidural infusion pressure in degenerative spinal disease before and after epidural steroid therapy [7].
  • Pre-existing degenerative spinal disease was found in 50% of patients [8].

  • RESULTS: Five clinical trials with a total of 338 patients and comparing the effect on pain of radon baths (three trials) or radon speleotherapy (two trials) with control intervention in degenerative spinal disease (two trials), rheumatoid arthritis (one trial) and ankylosing spondylitis (two trials) met the inclusion criteria [15].
  • Patients lacking both B27 and peripheral arthritis did not have sacroiliitis and only in one case showed evidence of spinal disease (0.7%) [16].
  • BACKGROUND: More than three decades of research involving thousands of scientists and academicians throughout the world have led to the clinical use of recombinant bone morphogenetic proteins for the treatment of spinal disease [17].
  • CDH (Cotrel-Dubousset-Hopf) instrumentation was developed with the aim of improving stability in ventral operation procedure and facilitating treatment of all anterior spinal diseases [18].
