The aim of this study was to determine the therapeutic efficacy of simvastatin treatment starting 1 day after spinal cord injury (SCI) in rat and to investigate the underlying mechanism. Spinal cord injury was induced in adult female Sprague-Dawley rats after laminectomy at T9-T10. Then additionally with sham group (laminectomy only) the SCI animals were(More)
This study investigated the therapeutic effects of simvastatin administered by subarachnoid injection after spinal cord injury (SCI) in rats; explored the underlying mechanism from the perspective of mobilization, migration and homing of bone marrow stromal cells (BMSCs) to the injured area induced by simvastatin. Green fluorescence protein labeled-bone(More)
Reports on adolescent patients with cervical myelopathy who underwent anterior cervical discectomy and fusion are scarce. However, to our knowledge, no cases of expansive laminoplasty for cervical myelopathy associated with progressive neurological deficit after a series of conservative treatment, caused by both disc herniation and developmental cervical(More)
Primary spinal tumors are rare. Current knowledge on this subject is therefore limited due to the lack of study with large cohort. This study is prompted to share our data on clinical profiles of primary spinal tumors collected from a large series of patients. Clinical manifestations of 438 consecutive patients were summarized retrospectively with(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the mechanism of high occurrence of cervical spondylotic myelopathy in the patients with degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis and the relationship between these two diseases. METHODS Lateral radiographic plain films were made on 68 cases with degenerative lumbar spine stenosis 23 males and 45 females, aged 50.0 (22 - 69). The(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the accuracy and reliability of atlantoaxial transarticular screw insertion (Magerl's technique) in atlas under lateral fluoroscopic monitoring without anteroposterior view. METHOD Seventy-five consecutive patients with atlantoaxial instability, 48 males and 27 females, aged 35.1, were treated by Magerl's technique. The screw path in(More)
