Pathology and Treatment of Traumatic Cervical Spine Syndrome: Whiplash Injury
The Quebec classification and its guidelines are very useful for the normalization and standardization of symptoms of traumatic cervical syndrome, but in the future, it would like to see the emergence of new guidelines that better address the diversity of this disease.
Study protocol for the G-SPIRIT trial: a randomised, placebo-controlled, double-blinded phase III trial of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor-mediated neuroprotection for acute spinal cord injury
Evaluated the efficacy of G-CSF for acute SCI: changes in ASIA motor scores from baseline to 3 months, a prospective, multicentre, randomised, double-blinded, placebo-controlled comparative study.
Local administration of WP9QY (W9) peptide promotes bone formation in a rat femur delayed-union model
Results reveal that W9 has an effect on fractures of promoting healing and could be applied as a fracture treatment.
Magnetic Targeted Delivery of Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Promotes Articular Cartilage Repair
The magnetic delivery system proved useful and safe for cartilage repair using iPS cells and maintained pluripotency, and the histologic grading score was significantly better in the treatment group compared to the control group.
The relationship between central motor conduction time and spinal cord compression in patients with cervical spondylotic myelopathy
Measurement of spinal cord compression may be useful for the evaluation of corticospinal function as a proxy for CMCT in patients with CSM.
Novel Hybrid Hydroxyapatite Spacers Ensure Sufficient Bone Bonding in Cervical Laminoplasty
Cervical laminoplasty with hybrid hydroxyapatite spacers is safe and simple, and it yields sufficient fixation strength while ensuring sufficient bone bonding during the immediate postoperative period.
Randomized trial of granulocyte colony-stimulating factor for spinal cord injury
The present trial failed to show a significant effect of G-CSF in primary end point, and one of the secondary end points showed that the ASIA motor score 6 months and 1 year after drug administration tend to be higher in the G- CSF group compared with the placebo control group.
Electrophysiological Assessment and Classification of Motor Pathway Function in Patients With Spinal Dural Arteriovenous Fistula
The study revealed abnormalities in the corticospinal tract and/or lower motor neurons, and classified the patients with SDAVF into three types: the UMN type, LMN type, and mixed type.

AchE staining and intraoperative MEP monitoring could detect the motor nerve rootlet that was the origin of a cauda equina tumor.
Evidence that impaired motor conduction in the bilateral ulnar and tibial nerves underlies cervical spondylotic amyotrophy in patients with unilateral deltoid muscle atrophy
CSA patients with unilateral deltoid muscle atrophy had subclinical impairments of lower motor neurons and/or peripheral axons in the ulnar nerve, and subclinical impairment of peripheral axon in the tibial nerve.
