The aim of this study is to formulate some objectives and to maintain the place of physical therapy in the management of tethered spinal cord syndrome by evaluating the clinical, radiological, and therapeutic approaches of our patients retrospectively. Eighteen patients with tethered spinal cord syndrome were analyzed retrospectively. All of the patients underwent surgical untethering and were put on a rehabilitation program after the surgery. Except three cases, all of the patients (83… 
Rehabilitación de un paciente operado de síndrome de medula anclada Rehabilitation of an operated on tethered spinal cord patient
The concept of tethered spinal cord refers to a low abnormal position of the spinal cord, that can accopany various types of spinal dysraphies. It is clinically characterized by the clinical

Conservative versus neurosurgical treatment of tethered cord patients.
In the majority of operated children, symptomatic (re)tethering was recognised by the appearance of increased tendon reflexes and a progressive pes cavus, suggestive of an upper motor neuron disease involvement.
"Tethered cord syndrome"--recent clinical experience.
It is suggested that cord release in patients with "tethered cord syndrome" improves or arrests the progression of neurological deterioration.

The aim of the operation is to free the conus medullaris and cauda equina before mechanical traction or compression damages function in lumbosacral cord.
[The tethered cord syndrome : a review of causes].
The main clinical findings were neurological skeletal, urological and cutaneous alterations in variable frequencies, and Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was the best diagnostic test.
Predicting outcome in the tethered cord syndrome: a study of cord motion.
A trend was seen toward a better outcome in younger patients with slight or moderate decrease in cord motion, and all children with worse outcome were previously operated meningomyeloceles who had markedly decreased cord motion and who were greater than 10 years old.
The tethered spinal cord. Etiology and clinical manifestations.
The charts of patients with tethered spinal cords from the Honolulu Unit of the Shriners Hospital for Crippled Children are reviewed to highlight potential diagnostic and treatment problems.
Congenital tethered spinal cord syndrome in adults.
Although surgery in adults with tethered spinal cord syndrome in adults involves greater risk of neurological injury than in children, it is a low-risk procedure with encouraging results.
Delayed postoperative tethering of the cervical spinal cord.
Surgical exploration with microscopic sharp detethering of the cervical cord was performed on each patient with favorable results, and to avoid retethering, wide Tutoplast duraplasty is recommended.
[The tethered spinal cord: diagnosis and surgical considerations].
Close clinical and radiodiagnostic follow-up of this high risk patient population is indicated and modern diagnostic methods and surgical indications are described.
The tethered spinal cord: diagnosis, significance, and management.
Although delayed release of the spinal cord, following the onset of a neurological deficit, may reverse some lost function, it is unlikely to restore bladder and bowel function.
