The objective of the study was to highlight the diagnostic challenge of this elusive rare disease. A retrospective study of non-tuberculous spinal epidural abscesses (SEA) was carried out in Southern General Hospital, Glasgow, University Hospital of Wales, Cardiff, and Morriston Hospital, Swansea, from 1990 to 2000. Thirty-nine patients, consisting of 20(More)
Stabilization and manipulation of instruments in endoscopic neurosurgery has traditionally been a manual task. Conventional self-retaining retractors have failed to provide reliable fixation for endoscopic procedures. Most surgeons rely on a team approach to endoscopy with one individual controlling the endoscope while the other manipulates instruments(More)
OBJECTIVE Adequate neural decompression with minimal structural alteration is the goal of lumbar stenosis surgery. Often because of limited visualization significant parts of the facet joints are removed enhancing the potential for developing instability. To overcome this problem we have developed a small curved Kerrison rongeur that contains a 10 000-pixel(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of growth on biokinematic characteristics at the trot in a group of 9 Andalusian foals from age 12 to 36 months in order to identify which stride variables change or remain invariable. Biokinematic analysis was performed by using a computer-assisted videography system (25 Hz frame rate). An increase in(More)
