Posterior cord syndrome treatment

The London Spine Unit specialises in the diagnosis and treatment of Posterior cord syndrome. Our Specialists are trained in the recognition of symptoms caused by Posterior cord syndrome. The best investigation for this condition is an MRI scan as this shows the structural damage that can be caused by Posterior cord syndrome.

If you have been diagnosed with Posterior cord syndrome then you should seek a specialist second opinion on the best treatment options as untreated Posterior cord syndrome can lead to more serious problems including nerve damage, persistent pain and immobility.

Our Location

We are based on the Prestigious Harley Street and our clinic is fully equipped to diagnose and treat Posterior cord syndrome

 

More details about Posterior cord syndrome

Posterior cord syndrome (PCS), also known as posterior spinal artery syndrome (PSA), is a type of incomplete spinal cord injury.[1] PCS is the least commonly occurring of the six clinical spinal cord injury syndromes, with an incidence rate of less than 1%.

PCS originates from an infarct in the posterior spinal artery and is caused by lesions on the posterior portion of the spinal cord, specifically the posterior column, posterior horn, and posterolateral region of the lateral column.[2] These lesions can be caused by trauma to the neck, occlusion of the spinal artery, tumors, disc compression, vitamin B12 deficiency, syphilis, or multiple sclerosis.[3] Despite these numerous pathological pathways, the result is an interruption in transmission of sensory information and motor commands from the brain to the periphery.
