Canine spinal cords were compressed by a cylindrical balloon placed in the T-13 epidural space and maintained at 160 mm Hg for one hour. Fifteen minutes after deflation, either local hypothermia or parenteral dexamethasone therapy was initiated. Local hypothermia (dorsal dura mater at 6 degrees C for four hours) was achieved with a miniature epidural heat… (More)
The current experiment reexamines this laboratory's frequently cited previous experimental conclusion that a mechanism underlying the beneficial effects of glucocorticoids in the treatment of spinal cord injury may be the enhanced preservation of spinal cord tissue potassium. For the first time, similar methodology also has been applied to study the effects… (More)
Canine spinal cords were compressed at T-13 by an epidural balloon maintained at 160 mm Hg for one hour. After seven weeks, mean motor ratings of dogs treated with either parenteral dexamenthasone or non-irrigative local hypothermia (on the dorsal dura mater at 6 degrees C for four hours) indicated ability to walk well, whereas untreated dogs could not… (More)
Cervical diastematomyelia is a very rare entity. We present a case in a 20-yr-old girl, associated with anomalous bone in the neck.
A case of midcervical diastematomyelia presenting as acute traumatic hemiplegia in an adult is discussed, with emphasis upon features reflecting this particular location. Advantages of metrizamide computed tomographic imaging in the diagnosis of this entity are presented, and a method of operative management is outlined.
