We report a 42-year old men who presented to our observation with acute tongue swelling and atrophy of left side of tongue from a hypoglossal nerve injury. A magnetic resonance imaging revealed a denervation of the left half of the tongue from a hypoglossal nerve injury due to left extracranial internal carotid artery (ICA) dissection, without evidence of ischemic stroke. The urine toxicology screen test revealed a positivity for cocaine. This case report suggest to perform in young patient a toxicological drug screening test in presence of ICA dissection with hypoglossal nerve injury and an acute tongue swelling. However ...

This study is a prospective clinical study. Purpose: This study aims to evaluate the characteristics of trunk musculature and intervertebral discs by using magnetic resonance imaging in patients with spinal cord injuries (SCIs) with thoracic and lumbar fractures. Overview of Literature: Muscle atrophy is an immediate consequence of SCI and is associated with secondary complications. At present, there are limited clinical data on muscle and disc responses to fractures of the thoracic and lumbar spine. Methods: A total of 51 patients with a mean age of 31.75±10.42 years who suffered traumatic SCI were incl...

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to elucidate the relevance among Schmorl's node (SN), chronic low back pain (CLBP), and intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD) with the use of magnetic resonance imaging T2 mapping. Overview of Literature: SN may be combined with CLBP and/or IVDD; however, their relationship has not been determined to date. Methods: A total of 105 subjects were included (48 men and 57 wome...

Authors: Rudy HL, Cho W, Oster BA, Tarpada SP, Moran-Atkin E Abstract Study Design: Retrospective cohort study. Purpose: To determine the effects of massive weight loss on perioperative complications after lumbar fusion surgery (LFS). Overview of Literature: Patients who are obese are more likely to experience low back pain, which would require LFS. Nonetheless, they have a higher risk of perioperative complication development compared with individuals who are not obese. Methods: Patients who underwent LFS at hospitals that participated in the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database withi...

This study aimed to analyze the similarities and differences between IJV stenosis and CVS stenosis. Patients with either IJV stenosis or CVS stenosis confirmed by contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance venography between October 2017 and July 2018 were enrolled in this retrospective study. The similarities and differences between IJV stenosis and CVS stenosis on the aspects of clinical and imaging features were compared. A total of 82 eligible patients entered into the final analysis. The similarities of the two subsets of cerebral venous outflow insufficiency mainly included headache, head noises or tinnitus, visual disorde...

Conclusions:Thorough investigation should be undertaken for secondary causes of headache and intracranial hypertension, especially in normal weight patients when other symptoms are present. Misdiagnosis can complicate future treatment of the underlying cause, and in the case of undiagnosed vascular malformations, result in delayed cerebral hemorrhage or ischemia.Disclosure: Dr. Kaye has nothing to disclose.
