RATIONALE: Spinal twine damage (SCI) is without doubt one of the widespread issues of spinal surgical procedure. There isn’t a particular remedy and time of decompression for spinal twine induced by epidural hematoma throughout vertebroplasty.
PATIENT CONCERNS: A complete of 6 sufferers with SCI throughout vertebroplasty have been included in our analysis. All of them occurred sensory disturbance and motor dysfunction attributable to a decrease or similar stage operative vertebral physique lesion in vertebroplasty.
DIAGNOSES: Neurological manifestations throughout vertebroplasty, postoperative magnetic resonance imaging and computed tomography.
INTERVENTIONS: As soon as SCI occurred in vertebroplasty, 4 sufferers have been underwent spinal twine decompression instantly, and two sufferers have been accomplished after 14 and 22 hours, respectively.
OUTCOMES: Earlier than decompression operation, one affected person was Frankel A, three have been Frankel B, and two have been Frankel C. Someday after evacuation of the SEH, three sufferers recovered to regular neurological perform (Frankel E), one to Frankel C, and one to Frankel D, however the different one didn’t recuperate. On the final follow-up, 5 sufferers had recovered to Frankel E and one affected person to Frankel D.
LESSONS: In accordance with our expertise, when SCI happens throughout vertebroplasty, neurological deficits are at all times secondary to acute SEH. Well timed decompression, notably switch surgical procedure, can shorten restoration time.
