Myelopathy with radicular pain
and ascending paresis
avoidance during needle placement in lumbar discography.
These 2 patients were known to have HCC prior to developing back pain, paresthesia, or radicular pain
several months after their initial diagnosis.
This study followed 55 patients who requested operative treatment with lumbar radicular pain
(4 spine surgeons) with 13 to 28 month follow-up.
Symptoms are exacerbated by neck movements and may be accompanied by radicular pain
and/or paraesthesia down the arm.
Acute lesions and radicular pain
respond better to ESI; (6,8,45) disc herniations respond better than spinal stenoses (61% vs.
Subjects had to have radicular pain
(below the knee for lumbar herniations, into the anterior thigh for upper lumbar herniations), a positive nerve-root tension sign (a positive straight leg raise of 30-70 degrees), or a corresponding neurologic deficit (depressed reflex, decreased sensation, or weakness in a myotomal distribution).
Of the 24 patients who were cured of infection, 12 (50%) had infection-related sequelae: 7 of 12 (58%) with persistent local or radicular pain
, 5 of 12 (42%) with lower extremity weakness, 3 of 12 (25%) with voiding dysfunction, and 3 of 12 (25%) with lower extremity hyporeflexia.
In elderly and immunocompromised individuals, VZV may reactivate to produce a dermatomal rash and radicular pain
(zoster or shingles).
They can also aid in localizing pathology, such as a selective nerve root block in a patient with radicular pain
NVIV), a developer of groundbreaking technologies for the treatment of spinal cord injuries (SCI) and other neurological injuries, today announced a novel hydrogel based product for the treatment of acute and sub-acute sciatica or radicular pain
of the low back and legs and/or acute and sub-acute radicular pain
of the neck or arms.
