Abstract Cervical radiculopathy is a disorder involving dysfunction of cervical nerve roots that commonly manifests as pain radiating from the neck into the distribution of the affected root. Acute cervical radiculopathy generally has a self‐limited clinical course, with up to a 75% rate of spontaneous improvement. Thus, nonsurgical treatment is the appropriate initial approach for most patients. When nonsurgical treatment fails to relieve symptoms or if a significant neurologic deficit exists… Expand
Cervical radiculopathy.
TLDR
Most patients improve with a conservative, nonoperative treatment course, and medications may be used to alleviate symptoms and manage pain. Expand
Cervical radiculopathy
TLDR
The epidemiology of cervical radiculopathy is reviewed, relevant clinical syndromes that must be considered in the differential diagnosis including peripheral nerve entrapment syndrome and shoulder pathology are discussed, and options for management are discussed. Expand
Rotator cuff tears with cervical radiculopathy.
TLDR
The purpose of this review is to examine the overlap of shoulder pain and rotator cuff tear problems and their interactions. Expand
A Combination of Surgical and Conservative Management of a Patient with Evolving Cervical Radiculopathy Symptoms: A Case Report
TLDR
The acute post-operative phase for a complicated patient case in which both surgical and physical therapy interventions were used in the management of the patient’s evolving cervical radiculopathy symptoms is described to demonstrate how symptoms in patients with cervical radingopathy can present and evolve differently, which requires an individualized treatment approach.

Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy, Be Vigilant of Miscellaneous Presentations: A Case Series
TLDR
The aim of this study was to reiterate that CSM could have diverse manifestations, and it can be only identified if the physicians are aware and do a thorough investigation, and early diagnosis and early treatment prior to permanent spinal cord injury is recommended. Expand
Team Approach: Upper-Extremity Numbness
TLDR
Operative treatment is appropriate after an appropriate course of nonoperative management has failed or with specific diagnoses in which a delay in definitive treatment may put a patient at risk for long-term functional deficits. Expand
EFFICACY OF CAGE PLACEMENT WITHOUT PLATE IN PATIENTS WITH CERVICAL MYELOPATHY WITH SINGLE-LEVEL AFFECTION
TLDR
Anterior approach arthrodesis using PEEK cage without cervical plate is effective as a treatment of cervical myelopathy in a single level. Expand
A single neurosurgical center’s experience of the resolution of cervical radiculopathy after dorsal foraminotomy and ventral discectomy
TLDR
Complete removal of the affected cervical disc via a ventral approach and segmental fusion results in a superior neurological performance in the short-term compared to a dorsal foraminotomy and nerve root decompression by sequestrectomy. Expand
Minimally Invasive Posterior Cervical Foraminotomy: Freiburg Experience With 34 Patients
TLDR
Minimally invasive cervical foraminotomy is an effective procedure for decompression of cervical nerve roots regardless the type of the stenosis and more randomized control studies are required to clarify the benefits of minimally invasive PCF. Expand
Radiculopathy Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion for Cervical Surgical Decision Making for Patients Undergoing an The Effect of Oblique Magnetic Resonance Imaging on
Background: The purpose of this study was to determine if oblique magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) sequences affect the surgical treatment recommendations for patients with cervical radiculopathy.Expand

Cervical Radiculopathy: Diagnosis and Nonoperative Management
TLDR
An algorithmic approach for decision making and a review of nonoperative management are presented, which will improve the understanding of diagnosis and decision making regarding nonoperative interventions. Expand
Chronic cervical radiculopathy: lateral-approach periradicular corticosteroid injection.
Thirty-two patients underwent periradicular corticosteroid injections with a lateral percutaneous approach under fluoroscopic guidance, to treat 34 foci of chronic cervical radiculopathy unresponsiveExpand
Radiculopathy and myelopathy at segments adjacent to the site of a previous anterior cervical arthrodesis.
TLDR
The findings suggest that symptomatic adjacent-segment disease is the result of progressive spondylosis and patients should be informed of the substantial possibility that new disease will develop at an adjacent level over the long term. Expand
Anterior Microforaminotomy for Treatment of Cervical Radiculopathy: Part 1—Disc-preserving “Functional Cervical Disc Surgery”
TLDR
Anterior microforaminotomy provided good or excellent outcomes, with minimal morbidities, for 98% of 104 patients with cervical discogenic radiculopathy, and the functional anatomic features were well preserved for 99% of the patients. Expand
Failed anterior cervical foraminotomy.
TLDR
A reoperation rate that is considerably higher than that in most series of anterior cervical surgery for radiculopathy is found and the authors do not recommend anterior cervical foraminotomy as a stand-alone procedure. Expand
Herniated cervical intervertebral discs with radiculopathy: an outcome study of conservatively or surgically treated patients.
TLDR
Patients with a herniated cervical intervertebral disc with radiculopathy can be treated conservatively with good results, although a residual intermittent neck pain syndrome often persists. Expand
Natural History and Prognosis of Cervical Spondylosis
It is now fi**ffftn years since cervical spondylosis was clearly defined (Brain, Knight, and Bull, 1948), but this is not long in terms of natural history, and it is not surprising that little hasExpand
Posterior-lateral foraminotomy as an exclusive operative technique for cervical radiculopathy: a review of 846 consecutively operated cases.
TLDR
Between 1963 and 1980, one or more posterior-lateral foraminotomies were performed for simple cervical radiculopathy as the sole operative procedure for 736 patients, and most (91.5%) of the patients describe themselves as either "good or excellent" postoperatively. Expand
Nonoperative Management of Herniated Cervical Intervertebral Disc With Radiculopathy
TLDR
Many cervical disc herniations can be successfully managed with aggressive nonsurgical treatment (24 of 26 in the present study), and high patient satisfaction with nonoperative care was achieved on outcome analysis. Expand
Anterior spinal artery syndrome following periradicular cervical nerve root therapy
TLDR
The patient developed an anterior spinal artery syndrome with complete flaccid quadriplegia including respiratory muscles, paralysis of sphincteric function, and dissociated sensory loss below the level of C4. Expand
