Spine

Spine is made up of 26 bone discs called vertebrae. Protected deep inside the bones, the spinal cord connects your body to the brain, allowing movement of your arms and legs. Strong muscles and bones, flexible tendons and ligaments, and sensitive nerves contribute to a healthy spine. The spinal column provides the main support for your body, allowing you to stand upright, bend, and twist. Ligaments and muscles connect the bones together and keep them aligned. They include Infections, Injuries, Tumors, Ankylosing spondylitis, scoliosis, spinal stenosis and herniated disks. Spinal diseases often cause pain when bone changes put pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. They can also limit movement. Treatments differ by disease, but sometimes they include back braces and surgery.

Laminectomy

It is a surgical procedure to remove lamina. Lamina is the back part of vertebra that covers spinal canal. It is also called as decompression surgery. Laminectomy may also be done to remove bone spurs in spine. It can take a pressure of spinal nerves. Laminectomy is generally used only when more-conservative treatments such as medication, physical therapy or injections have failed to relieve symptoms. Laminectomy may also be recommended if symptoms are severe or worsening dramatically. Laminectomy is often done to treat spinal stenosis. The procedure removes bones and damaged disks, and makes more room for your spinal nerve and column.

Scoliosis

Scoliosis is a lateral (toward the side) curvature in the normally straight vertical line of the spine. Scoliosis is used to describe the abnormal, sideways curvature of the spine. When a person with a normal spine is viewed from the front or back, the spine appears to be straight, when a person with scoliosis is viewed from the front or back, the spine appears to be curved. Types of scoliosis are infantile, juvenile, adolescent, congenital and neuromuscular scoliosis. While scoliosis can be caused by conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause of most scoliosis is unknown. Idiopathic scoliosis rarely causes pain, and in most cases the curve is minor enough to be considered an asymmetry and does not require any treatment. However, once scoliosis is detected it should be closely monitored by a medical professional in the event that the curve progresses and needs treatment.

Spine Tumour

It is a growth of cells in or surrounding the spinal cord. It can occur inside the spinal cord (intramedullary), in the membrane covering the spinal cord, between the meninges and bones of the spine. The symptoms are loss of sensation especially in the legs, loss of muscle function, cold sensation of the legs, and muscle weakness.There are three common types of spinal tumors that can cause back pain: vertebral column tumors, intradural-extramedullary tumors, and intramedullary tumors. Most tumors in the spine are metastatic—they spread from another part of the body into the spinal region and cause pain. Tumors in the spinal cord usually cause symptoms, sometimes over large portions of the body. Tumors outside the spinal cord may grow for a long time before causing nerve damage.

Spinal Canal

When the vertebral bodies are stacked one on top of another, they create a vertical tunnel behind the vertebral bodies called the spinal canal or neural canal. The spinal canal is space in vertebrae through which the spinal cord is passes. Spinal stenosis can occur in three locations of the spinal canal: in the middle of the canal, in the lateral recess, or in the neuroforamen. The spinal canal is filled with cerebrospinal fluid that bathes nerves. The canal originates at the base of the skull and ends at the sacrum. On both sides of the spinal canal, there are neural foramen at each level of the cervical, thoracic and lumbar spine small canals, through which the paired spinal nerves travel.

Spinal Diseases

It refers to a condition impairing the backbone. It is also known as a dorsopathy. It is includes cervical spine diseases, which are diseases in the vertebrae of the neck. The symptoms are lower back pain that is generally made worse with sitting; back pain is intensified by bending, turning and twisting. Spinal diseases often cause pain when bone changes put pressure on the spinal cord or nerves. They can also limit movement. Treatments differ by disease, but sometimes they include back braces and surgery. A number of problems can change the structure of the spine or damage the vertebrae and surrounding tissue. Many medical problems can cause or contribute to back pain. They include scoliosis, which causes curvature of the spine and does not usually cause pain until mid-life; spondylolisthesis; various forms of arthritis, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis; and spinal stenosis, a narrowing of the spinal column that puts pressure on the spinal cord and nerves.

Ischial Spine

It is a thin pointed triangular eminence that project from the dorsal order of the ischium. It gives the attachment to the gemellus superior on its external surface and to the coccyges, levator ani, and pelvic fascia on its internal surface. The pudendal nerve passes dorsal to the ischial spine. The ischial tuberosity is the point of origin of the adductor and hamstring muscles of the thigh, as well as the sacrotuberous ligaments. The forceful pull of these muscles, can happen during a variety of sports, as a result of a trauma, such as a fall or other type of injury, or through the overuse of the hamstrings, as is common among runners and soccer players. In rare cases an avulsion fracture or separation of the ischial tuberosity or apophysis can occur.

Biomechanics of Spine

Biomechanics is the term used to describe movement of the body. In order to better understand the biomechanics of the spine it is important to understand the anatomy of the spine. The spine is one of the most complex parts of the body. The spine can be divided into five sections: the cervical section (the neck), the thoracic section (the upper back), the lumbar section (the lower back), the sacrum (part of the pelvis) and the coccyx (the tailbone). The main movements of the spine are to bend forward (flex), bend backward (extend), side-bend (side-flex), and rotate. Finally, normal spine biomechanics is required to maintain a healthy spine. Abnormal biomechanics can be classified as hypomobile (decreased) movement between vertebrae, hypermobile (increased) movement between vertebrae or instability (severe loss of stability).

Minimal Invasive Spine Surgery

"Minimally Invasive" refers to a technique using small incisions to gain access to the particular area of the body needing treatment. By avoiding a larger incision, there can be less force from the retractors on the surrounding tissues, less tissue dissection, and usually better preservation of the surrounding blood supply to the tissues in the operated area. Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS), does not involve a long incision, it avoids significant damage to the muscles surrounding the spine. In most cases, this results in less pain after surgery and a faster recovery. Minimally invasive spine surgery (MISS) is sometimes called less invasive spine surgery. In these procedures, doctors use specialized instruments to access the spine through small incisions. Minimally invasive spine surgery was developed to treat spine problems with less injury to the muscles and other normal structures in the spine. It also helps the surgeon to see only where the problem exists in the spine. Other advantages to MISS include smaller incisions, less bleeding, and shorter stays in the hospital.

Spinal Stenosis

Spinal stenosis is the narrowing of spaces in the spine (backbone) which causes pressure on the spinal cord and nerves. About 75% of cases of spinal stenosis occur in the low back (lumbar spine). In most cases, the narrowing of the spine associated with stenosis compresses the nerve root, which can cause pain along the back of the leg. There are two types of spinal stenosis: lumbar stenosis and cervical stenosis. While lumbar spinal stenosis is more common, cervical spinal stenosis is often more dangerous because it involves compression of the spinal cord. Spinal stenosis is most commonly caused by wear-and-tear changes in the spine related to osteoarthritis. Thoracic stenosis can also occur, but is less common. The thoracic part of the spine is the middle/upper portion of the spine, and mainly consists of the vertebrae that are attached to the rib cage. This stable and strong part of the spine allows for minimal movement, which is why degenerative conditions such as spinal stenosis are less likely to develop.

Spine Cancer

Spine cancer is an abnormal tissue growth associated with cancer. The symptoms of the spinal cancer are tumour type, size, location and extent, as well as age. When the tumour presses on the spinal cord, the symptoms begin with numbness or tilting in the arm or legs, difficulty walking, general loss of sensation, spinal deformities and pain or difficulty with standing. Back pain is a common early symptom of both noncancerous and cancerous spinal tumors. Pain may also spread beyond your back to your hips, legs, feet or arms and may become more severe over time in spite of treatment. Spinal tumors progress at different rates. In general, cancerous spinal tumors grow more quickly, and noncancerous spinal tumors tend to develop very slowly.

Lower Back Pain

Lower back pain is a common disorder; almost everyone has it at some point. It is starts below the ribcage.it are called as lumbar region. The symptoms of lower back pain are, pain develops after movements lifting, twisting, or forward-bending, difficulty moving that can be severe enough to prevent walking or standing. While lower back pain is extremely common, the symptoms and severity of lower back pain vary greatly. A simple lower back muscle strain might be excruciating enough to necessitate an emergency room visit, while a degenerating disc might cause only mild, intermittent discomfort. Initially, back pain is usually treated with over-the-counter painkillers and home treatments. Most people will experience a significant improvement in their symptoms within six weeks. Some people find that heat – for example, a hot bath or a hot water bottle placed on the affected area helps ease the pain.

Spine Surgery

Lumbar surgery refers to any type of surgery in the lumbar spine, or lower back, between one or more of the L1-S1 levels. Spine surgery may be recommended if non-surgical treatment such as medications and physical therapy fails to relieve symptoms. Surgery is only considered in cases where the exact source of pain can be determined—such as a herniated disc, scoliosis, or spinal stenosis. Spinal Fusion. Spinal fusion is the most common surgery for back pain. In a spinal fusion, a surgeon joins spinal bones, called vertebrae, together. This restricts motion between the bones of the spine. Fusion also limits the stretching of nerves. When surgery is done near the spine and spinal cord, these complications can be very serious. Complications could involve subsequent pain and impairment and the need for additional surgery. Depending on the specific type of surgery, there may be some activities that the surgeon may ask you to avoid. Typically after a lumbar spinal fusion, patients are asked to avoid bending, lifting heavy objects, and twisting motions.

Lower Back Surgery

There are many types of back surgery technics, but they aren’t equally effective for everyone. Spinal fusion is the most common surgery for back pain. Benefits of back surgeries are increased activity, better physical fitness, and ability to go back to work. There are several types of back surgery. Some, like a discectomy, can help people who have severe symptoms. A comprehensive rehabilitation program is very important after most back surgery. As you regain flexibility, recondition your back and stomach muscles, and increase your endurance for activity, you increase your chances of treatment success. There are a wide variety of possible exercises to achieve the desired results, and it is important to choose exercises that are safe and well tolerated by the patient so that they will be done on a regular basis.

Sciatic nerve

Sciatic nerve is a large nerve in humans and animals.it is the longest and widest single nerve in the human body.it is formed by the nerve roots. The sciatic nerves branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. Pain associated with the sciatic nerve usually originates higher along the spinal cord when nerve roots become compressed from narrowing of the vertebral column or from slipped disk. The sciatica symptoms one feels—such as nerve pain, numbness, tingling, weakness—are highly variable: they can include symptoms primarily felt in the buttock, or in the back of the thigh down to the calf, or even into the toes. The nerve roots that exit the spine to form the sciatic nerve are extremely sensitive, and the inner portion of the disc that may herniate or extrude contains proteins that are inflammatory and easily irritate the nerve

Techniques in Spine surgery

The two primary types of medical devices used in a spinal fusion surgery include pedicle screws and anterior interbody cages or spacers. When it has been determined that a spine fusion is appropriate, the surgical technique utilized may vary. There are three main posterior fusion techniques (all three are usually performed with pedicle screw fixation):Posterolateral gutter fusion surgery: This type of spinal fusion involves placing bone graft in the posterolateral portion of the spine Posterior lumbar  interbody fusion (PLIF) surgery: A PLIF involves placing bone graft and/or spinal implant (e.g. cage) directly into the disc space in the front of the spine. Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) surgery: A TLIF is essentially like an extended PLIF, as it also involves expanding the disc space by removing one entire facet joint.

Spondylosis

It refers to degenerative changes in the spine.it is incomplete development and formation of the connecting part of the vertebra. Spondylosis is used to describe degeneration in the neck (cervical), lower back (lumbar), and middle back (thoracic). It is also used to describe the manner of spinal degeneration. Spondylolysis is the most common cause of isthmic spondylolisthesis, in which one vertebral body is slipped forward over another. Isthmic spondylolisthesis is the most common cause of back pain in adolescents; however, most adolescents with spondylolisthesis do not actually experience any symptoms or pain. The diagnosis of spondylosis is made using radiology tests such as plain film X-rays, MRI, or CT scans. X-rays can show bone spurs on vertebral bodies in the spine, thickening of facet joints, and narrowing of the intervertebral disc spaces. The main complication of spondylosis is low back, mid back, or neck pain. Usually the back and neck pain caused by spondylosis is not serious, but some people develop chronic pain due to their condition.

Cervical Laminectomy

Cervical laminectomy is the procedure to remove a portion of bone from the spine in the neck to relieve pressure caused by cervical spinal stenosis. It can place pressure on the spinal cord. Due to that spinal cord can be insidious loss of coordination, loss of balance during walking, and even bowel and bladder incontinence. The objective of this procedure is to remove the lamina to give the spinal cord more room. The spinal cord is especially sensitive to injury, and once the progression of pinching leads to significant loss of function, this function may not be reversible even with removal of the offending agent. Degenerative changes of the cervical spine can produce compression of a spinal nerve, causing a radiculopathy such as pain, sensory changes, and weakness in a single extremity. Compression of the spinal cord can lead to more profound dysfunction known as a myelopathy.

Sciatica

Sciatica is a common type of pain affecting the sciatic nerve. It is usually affect only one side of lower body and then extended to back of thigh and down through the leg. It will be depends on where the sciatic nerve is affected, the pain may also extend to the foot or toes.Symptoms of sciatica include pain that begins in your back or buttock and moves down your leg and may move into your foot. Weakness, tingling, or numbness in the leg may also occur. Sciatica is caused by irritation of the root(s) of the lower lumbar and lumbosacral spine. Sciatica is commonly caused by some type of compression of a spinal nerve in the lower back. The medical term for sciatica is lumbar radiculopathy, or radicular pain, indicating that the symptoms originate with a radicular nerve in the spine. Sciatica is actually a symptom, not a diagnosis.

Journal of Spine is associated with our international conference “4th International Conference on Orthopedics & Rheumatology” during October 26-28, 2015 Baltimore, Maryland, USA with a theme "Cutting-edge information and maximize networking opportunities in the field of Orthopedics & Rheumatology". We are particularly interested in the areas of Orthopedic Degenerative Diseases, Arthropathies and Inflammatory Myopathies, Connective Tissue Disorders and Soft Tissue Rheumatism, Arthritis - Types and Treatment, Rheumatoid Arthritis - Pathophysiology and Treatment. We encourage articles involving spinal disorders, spine surgery, scoliosis, spinal stenosis, biomechanics of spine, spinal tumor, disc degeneration, spinal injuries & fractures.

As the new Editor –in Chief and editorial board member, I am pleased to encourage my predominantly Asian Spine Fellows to submit articles for this new open access Journal that I have found to be very easy to work with. Their Journal coordinator, Alex Stewart is very attentive to your questions and responds in a timely manner.

Good level 4 and 5 expert opinion research articles, editorials, and short communications to the Journal are especially welcome. Many of the prestigious Journals with high impact factors now only accept level 1, 2, and 3 EBM articles that are more difficult to get published because of the volume of submissions. I am a reviewer for Spine, and note that the number of rejections in these prestigious subscription Journals is high because of the sheer number of submissions, often supported by academic institutions with supporting staff.

All level 1 and 2 EBM articles start, however, with level 5 expert opinion! There is a need for articles on the diagnosis and treatment of common painful conditions of an aging spine, starting with common back pain that is needed by tens of millions of patients in every country, especially in countries outside the US and Europe where expenditures on spinal care is approximately 10 times less per capita compared to North America. There are very good research papers coming from OUS researchers that deserve publication in open access Journals such as the Journal of Spine.

In the US, new procedures tend to “follow the money” and the support by industry. In Asian and OUS countries, there is more emphasis on non-surgical treatment and safety as well as result. New and non-traditional treatments based on science is ideal for open access Journals like the Journal of Spine.

My work Focuses on the surgical treatment of the pain source, more than the current dependence on a review of the literature that emphasizes Imaging, followed by decompression, stabilization, and Fusion. Patient selection will be aided by using diagnostic and therapeutic injections, preferably by the surgeon, to identify the likely hood of surgical success when the pain source is targeted.

I invite you to read the articles published in the Journal of Spine and welcome you to bring your research to the Journal of spine.
