Degenerative cervical myelopathy (DCM) is an umbrella term that includes cervical spondylotic myelopathy, ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL) and other forms of degenerative changes to the spinal axis. The surgical management of OPLL can be technically challenging for spine surgeons and may result in a higher incidence of. CERVICAL SPONDYLOTIC MYELOPATHY Myelopathy or damage to the spinal cord, can occur for a number of reasons. The most common cause is when the spinal cord is compressed or squeezed. This compression disrupts normal nerve transmission.
This page includes the following topics and synonyms: Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy. According to Rene Calliet, MD, cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CMS) was distinguished from myelopathy in , based on the presence of acute disk prolapse. The principal pathology is encroachment of bony protrusion(s) into the spinal canal, the intervertebral foramen or foraminae, or both.
The natural history of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is the topic of this article. Natural history refers to what happens to a person with this type of problem as time goes by. Do they get better, worse, or stay the same? CSM is a degenerative condition that occurs with aging. Adults affected most often are 50 years old and older. Degenerative Cervical Myelopathy (DCM) is the most common cause of spinal cord injury in the world, but despite this, there remains many areas of uncertainty regarding the management of the condition. This special issue was dedicated to presenting current research topics in DCM. Within this issue, 12 publications are presented, including an introductory narrative overview of DCM and 11 Author: Aria Nouri, Renato Gondar, Joseph S. Cheng, Mark R.N. Kotter, Enrico Tessitore.

The overall prevalence of CSM is unknown, but CSM is the most common cause of myelopathy in adults over. Reports of anterior corpectomy with fusion to treat cervical spondylotic myelopathy revealed an improvement rate of approximately 85 to 90% (2, 3, 10, 12, 17, 20, 24, 25).
Published reports of anterolateral Cervical spondylotic myelopathy book without fusion for CSM are limited in number and revealed a to 93% improvement rate (5, 9, 16, 22, 27, 29). In the. The natural history of cervical myelopathy has been described in classic papers by Lees and Turner 3 and Clarke and Robinson.
4 Lees and Turner described exacerbation of symptoms followed by often long periods of static or worsening function or, in rare instances, improvement. Very few patients had steady progressive deterioration.
CSM, or Cervical (concerning the neck) Spondylotic (“wear and tear” arthritis of the spine) Myelopathy (injury to the spinal cord) is a common spinal cord disorder. It results from degenerative changes in the spinal column which reduce the space for the spinal cord and thus cause compression and hence a spinal cord injury.
Cervical spondylotic myelopathy is the most common cause of myelopathy in adults over 55 years, causing progressive disability and impairing the quality of life. Issues related to cervical spondylotic myelopathy will be reviewed here.
Neck pain, cervical radiculopathy, spinal cord syndromes, and other spinal cord disorders are discussed. Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy. One common type of cervical myelopathy is cervical spondylotic myelopathy. The term “spondylotic” refers to one of the possible causes of myelopathy — gradual degeneration of the spine that happens as you age.
Therefore, cervical spondylotic myelopathy is more common in people 50 and older. Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM), wherein the cervical cord is compressed by degenerative changes in the spine, is the commonest cause of spinal cord impairment worldwide, although precise incidence and prevalence data are lacking [1–3].Since Stookey’s original description of this condition in , much has been learned regarding the natural history, imaging features.

Introduction Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is a common model of incomplete spinal cord injury that is potentially reversible.
Evaluation of patients with this condition allows examination of the mechanisms involved in injury, recovery, and neuronal plasticity. Even though cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) and myelopathy secondary to OPLL have historically been segregated, these entities are unified under the umbrella of DCM.
Given the limited potential of the spinal cord for repair, expeditious diagnosis and treatment of DCM are critical, so as to reduce the risk of permanent disability.

The pathogenesis of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) was first described in by Brain et al. and subsequently by others (1, 2).Shortly thereafter, anterior decompression of the cervical spine for the treatment of CSM was pioneered by Smith and Robinson and Cloward (), and it has been used extensively since that e this, the efficacy of anterior decompressive procedures in.
Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is caused by chronic compression of the spinal cord and is the most common cause of myelopathy in adults. No drug is currently available to mitigate CSM.

INTRODUCTION. Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is a progressive, degenerative condition of the cervical spine and the leading cause of spinal cord impairment in adults over the age of 55 worldwide (1–6).As the global population ages, health care systems will be required to manage an increasing number of CSM patients and must therefore implement effective strategies to optimize outcomes.
Introduction. Degenerative cervical myelopathy is a clinical syndrome of prolonged compression of the spinal cord, which can result in severe neurologic disability if left untreated.
1 Also known as cervical spondylotic myelopathy, it can result from numerous degenerative processes, including disc disease, ligamentous hypertrophy, osteophyte formation, ossification of the posterior.This study aimed to determine the age- and sex-specific incidence of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) and its associated risk of causing subsequent spinal cord injury (SCI).
