The spontaneous resolution of herniated cervical discs has not been previously well documented. The authors analysed four cases who underwent spontaneous resolution of herniated cervical discs, and all other cases reported in the literature. A complex physiopathologic mechanism that includes the release of basic fibroblast grow factors, endothelial cell proliferation, chemotaxis of inflammatory cells into the disc fragment, foreign body inflammatory reaction, neovascularization and phagocytosis… Expand
MRI documentation of Spontaneous Regression of lumbar disc herniation- A case report.
TLDR
The following case reports the MRI documentation of spontaneous disappearance of acute lumbar disc extrusion in a patient treated conservatively. Expand
Resorption of a Sequestrated Cervical Disc
TLDR
A rare case of cervical disc sequestration with a seldom prognosis which resolved spontaneously in a 2 month follow up on magnetic resonance imaging is reported, emphasizing the efficacy and applicability of conservative treatment in cervical disc herniations. Expand

This report describes, for the first time in small animal literature, the spontaneous resorption of herniated Hansen type I intervertebral disc material in the cervical spine of a chondrodystrophicExpand
Spontaneous regression of a herniated cervical disc
TLDR
A particular case of spontanet ous resorption of symptomatic cervical disc herniation without surgical treatment is reported. Expand
Spontaneous resorption of sequestrated intervertebral disc herniation.
TLDR
It is found that sequestrated disc herniation has potential for regression, which can be clearly demonstrated by magnetic resonance imaging, because of having higher water content, and therefore, may regress through both dehydration and inflammation-mediated resorption. Expand
Spontaneous regression of cervical discs
TLDR
Conservative treatment seems to be a good option in patients without neurological deficits, with foraminal disc hernias and not requiring emergency surgery, according to the results of the study, which indicate that likelihood of spontaneous regression is higher in para-central or foraminals disc compared to central disc herNias.

Spontaneous regression of herniated cervical disc: A case report and literature review
TLDR
Successive MRI studies documented the spontaneous regression of herniated cervical discs over an average of 9.15 months, which may prompt greater consideration for conservative treatment in younger patients without neurologic deficits, and those with deficits should be considered for surgery. Expand
RF for Treatment of Cervical Disk Herniation
TLDR
The use of RF for treatment of cervical disk herniations is limited to the use of coblation technology, also called nucleoplasty. Expand
[Spontaneous regression of lumbar and cervical disc herniations - a well established phenomenon].
TLDR
Two current cases of patients with spontaneous regression of a LDH and a CDH are presented and it is shown that the majority of patients will improve significantly or even completely without surgery over weeks until months after symptom onset. Expand

Spontaneous regression of herniated nucleus pulposus.
TLDR
Whether or not regression of herniated disk is a frequent occurrence in patients who recover with conservative therapy should be investigated by more frequent use of follow-up CT scans. Expand
Pathomechanism of spontaneous regression of the herniated lumbar disc: histologic and immunohistochemical study.
TLDR
It is considered that an extruded or sequestrated disc has a potential to be resorbed by phagocytes and the occurrence rate of inflammatory response and the length of the period from onset to operation. Expand

TLDR
Findings suggest that organization is not a main course for this type of herniated disc and that a kind of “absorption” process occurs predominantly in the healing stage. Expand

TLDR
Removal of lateral sequestration by uncoforaminotomy provided full recovery for all patients with radiculopathy and drop-attacks and various routes combined with other approaches were indicated to eliminate completely the freely migrating disc sequestra. Expand
