Relatively minor injury can cause a fracture of the vertebral body or through the ossified intervertebral space, because of the loss of normal flexibility, mobility, and elasticity in the rigid spine. Sixty-six per cent of the fracture subluxations of the ankylosed spine are… (More)
Thoracic disc herniation is difficult to recognize. Diagnosis is easily made when the patient has a paraparesis, but at this point the disc herniation is usually large, and the result of the disc removal is less certain.

Diving accidents result in more than 1,800 cases of paralysis from injury to the spinal cord each year. Studies have been made of underwater deceleration during diving. The mechanisms involved in spinal injury are discussed.
A 14 year old male was hospitalized with pansinusitis complicated by intracranial spread of the infection. He developed a unilateral obstruction of the ventricular system of the foramen of Monro and a secondary mass effect revealed by radiological investigation.
Four years (1973-1973) of experience in the management of fractured cervical spine from diving accidents is examined with reference to clinical findings, radiology, prognosis, and socioeconomic aspects.
