Authors: Khajavi MR, Kamalzadeh N, Pourfakhr P, Moharari RS, Etezadi F Abstract Objectives: Catheterization of urinary bladder during surgery frequently leads to agitation of the patient in the recovery room, especially in those patients who remain catheterized after gaining consciousness. We hypothesized that administration of a combination of ketamine-haloperidol (KH) before urinary catheterization would reduce the incidence of catheter-related bladder discomfort (CRBD) while reducing some adverse effects of ketamine in the postoperative period. Methods: A total of 119 male patients who underwent lumbar spina...

Lumbar degenerative stenosis is one of the most common spine pathologies for which surgical intervention is indicated. There is some evidence that a prolonged duration of neurological compression could lead to a failure of surgery to alleviate symptoms.

This article is a follow-up to a previous article ("Redefining Lumbar Spinal Stenosis as a Developmental Syndrome: An MRI-Based Multivariate Analysis of Findings in 709 Patients Throughout the 16- to 82-Year Age Spectrum") that describes the radiological differences between developmental and degenerative types of LSS. MRI-based analysis of "degeneration" variables and spinal canal morphometric characteristics of LSS segments have been thought to correlate with age at presentation.METHODSThe authors performed a re-analysis of data from their previously reported prospective MRI-based study, stratifying da...

CONCLUSIONS: Although modern imaging procedures deliver a very precise illustration of lumbar spinal stenosis, clinical symptoms make a considerable contribution to therapeutic decision-making. With the anatomical classification, differentiated surgical decompression of the spinal canal can be planned. PMID: 31101963 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
