    Functional spinal unit (FSU) or motion segment. A functional spinal unit (FSU) is the smallest physiological motion unit of the spine to exhibit biomechanical characteristics similar to those of the entire spine (Fig. 1).A FSU consists of two adjacent vertebrae, the intervertebral disc and all adjoining ligaments between them and excludes other connecting tissues such as muscles. What is the amount of stress placed on the lumbar intervertebral discs when a person is sitting and leaning forward? lb of pressure What is the muscle group that is the primary mover for spinal extension and controls the rate of spinal flexion against gravity through eccentric contractions?

      Lumbar Disc Displacement is a pathological condition of the lumbar spine in which one of the discs which forms the lumbar spine moves out of its normal alignment. The lumbar disc acts as a shock absorber for the lumbar spine and protects it from the stresses of everyday life and keeps the lumbar vertebrae separated from each other. Highly detailed, intervertebral disc with high quality material to show lumbar lesion, helps students or medical researcher understand the process of lumbar disc lesion disease This model is designed as a teaching aid for anatomy and physiology courses; A great model for school study kit Great for school teaching, learning,researching display Reviews: 2.

      Herniated disc is a condition in which there is a lesion or rupture in the fibrous outer ring of cartilage (annulus) in the intervertebral disc of the spine that leads to bulging of the inner portion (nucleus). The most common site for herniation to occur is in the lower back between lumbar vertebrae 4 . Although thoracic disc lesions giving rise to compression of the spinal cord are well recognized, 1–5 disc protrusion resulting in pain without causing neurological signs is poorly documented. 6 The incidence of thoracic disc lesions affecting the spinal cord is about one case per million people per year, 3,7 usually affecting adults.

Images obtained from a 20‐year‐old man with damage‐herniation of the intervertebral disc. (A) T 2 weighted sagittal MRI showing intervertebral disc protrusion of L 5 S 1 segment. Lesions of the lumbar intervertebral disc book Posterior spine endoscopy view showing that the protrusion is enclosed by a thin capsule and the disc fragments have overflowed after the capsule was cut by: 5.

Erosion and calcification lesions were relatively large and most common in the lower lumbar region. The presence of lesions on 1 endplate of the disc was associated with presence of lesions on the opposing endplate (odds ratio =P by: In between each spinal bone (vertebra), there is an intervertebral disc which acts as a shock absorber to forces encountered in day to day life.

These discs are made up of a gel-like centre (nucleus pulposus) and a rubbery/fibrous outer (annular fibrosis). With a sedentary work lifestyle, experiencing back pain is common, especially if you are working either in an office environment or in a work-from-home setting.

Sedentary work lifestyle can lead to lumbar disc lesion. This type of disease happens when the discs that cushions the vertebrae in the lumbar spine dry out or become injured.

Continue reading "Chiropractic Care Treatment for. The term lumbar disc lesion means that your disc has been damaged. Disc lesions start when the outer fibers of the disc become strained or frayed.

If enough fibers become frayed, this can create a weakness and when the disc is compressed, the outer fibers may “bulge” or “protrude” like a weak spot on an inner tube.

A must-have reference for optimizing the care of patients with lumbar intervertebral disc disorders Written by leading authorities in the field of spine care, this book is a comprehensive reference for the latest techniques for managing intervertebral disc disorders affecting the lumbar spine.

Divided into four main sections, the book opens with a review of fundamental basic science concepts. The mass-like lesion was removed. No other lesions were found in the spinal canal. Outcomes: Pathologic examination of the intradural mass lesion revealed fibrocartilage similar to that found in disc material.

Nerve roots destined to innervate the limbs exit through vertebral foramina and intermingle in plexuses (i.e., the brachial and lumbosacral plexuses) before emerging as peripheral nerves that extend to the fingers and toes.

Lesions anywhere along this pathway—from spinal nerve roots to the final. Intervertebral disc disease is a common condition characterized by the breakdown (degeneration) of one or more of the discs that separate the bones of the spine (vertebrae), causing pain in the back or neck and frequently in the legs and arms.

Introduction. Intradural disc herniation (IDH) is defined as the intervertebral disc nucleus pulposus displacement into the dural sac [].It was originally described by Dandy [] inwith an amount of circa cases reported in literature until [].IDH is rare, comprising only – % of all disc herniations, and it occurs more often in the lumbar region (92 %) [4, 5], in which.

The lumbar MRI scan revealed mild annular bulging at L3-L4; however, the cystic lesion was not continuous with the intervertebral disc. Lumbar MRI is a valuable tool for diagnosing an epidural varix presenting with radicular pain.

Intervertebral Disc Lesions: A New Etiological Concept Our knowledge of the pathology of the intervertebral discs is a modern development, [occurring] mostly within the last quarter century. It is more than likely that lesions of these structures were equally if not more prevalent in earlier times but were not generally recognized until X-ray.

The aims of the study were to introduce a classification scheme for endplate lesions based on T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging and to detect possible associations between endplate lesions and other variables such as age, sex, disc degeneration and Modic changes in a large population.

MRI images of low back pain patients were collected. All intervertebral spaces were. Lumbar disc disease is a very common entity with a high asymptomatic ertebral disc abnormalities are found in 25% of individuals below the age of 60, and over 50% in those over the age of It is therefore not enough to demonstrate a disc lesion in someone with non-specific back pain, as the conspicuous lesion may not be the cause of the pain.

The majority of radiological papers dealing with intervertebral disc lesions advocate myelography with various contrast agents. InDandy was the first to introduce air into the spinal canal for radiography of the brain. since then a large number of papers have been published on contrast agents.The only prospective, randomized study of conservative versus surgical management of herniated lumbar intervertebral disk lesions indicates both methods provide adequate outcome in the long run.

Little consensus exists on the best method of management for patients with intervertebral disk lesions without absolute indications for surgery. At follow-up, it is necessary for assessing the intervertebral disc. Type A fracture is not associated with discal lesion in the vast majority of cases, either immediately or at follow-up.

It seems logical if possible to prefer reconstruction techniques sparing the intervertebral discs, and to propose material removal after follow-up MRI.
