The stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal that puts pressure on the spinal cord and roots. When located in the lower part of the spinal column The stenosis is a narrowing of the spinal canal that puts pressure on the spinal cord and roots. When located in the lower part of the spinal column it is known as lumbar canal stenosis, while when the narrowing occurs in the top of the column is called cervical canal stenosis. The lumbar and cervical areas are usually being the most affected, although the narrowing channel does not cause pain if not compress any nerve structure. The spinal stenosis often occur gradually by the aging process, due to the deformation of bones and tissues around the spinal canal. Usually begins to affect people over 50 years, although it also occurs in young people with a spinal trauma. The treatment of various types of spinal stenosis is usually based on the use of medications (anti-inflammatories or steroids) to reduce pain and inflammation with rest time, or physical therapy. Surgery is recommended only where nerve compression which progressively worsens. ...
Hydrocephalus is cefaleorraquídeo fluid accumulation (responsible for protecting and cushioning the brain) within the skull, which causes the brain t Hydrocephalus is cefaleorraquídeo fluid accumulation (responsible for protecting and cushioning the brain) within the skull, which causes the brain to swell due to excessive pressure on it. The condition can occur in infants because of problems during pregnancy, although hydrocephalus may also occur in adults, also called normal pressure hydrocephalus, whose most common causes are head injury, stroke, tumors, infections and cerebral hemorrhage. When it occurs in adults, the most serious cases are those of hydrocephalus in elderly. Medicine and rehabilitation are good resources to prevent their growth, although the most common treatment is surgery, in which a tube is placed to remove excess fluid. ...
Lumbar disc hernia is an injury caused by degeneration or wear of the intervertebral discs of the spine, which act as shock absorbers between the Lumbar disc hernia is an injury caused by degeneration or wear of the intervertebral discs of the spine, which act as shock absorbers between the vertebrae. Lumbar hernia is one of the most common and causes compression or irritation of the nerve root, which often just manifesting as sciatic nerve pain, depending on the position and size of the hernia. The main causes of herniated discs are articulate aging, trauma or prolonged exertion. In addition, there are risk factors that favor its appearance, such as obesity, sedentary lifestyle or snuff. Treatment varies depending on the severity of the case, and can be solved with temporary resting, drug administration, rehabilitation exercises or even surgery, it indicated only for patients who do not respond to other treatments and the pain persists markedly. A herniated disc L4 the level of injury when the pain radiates from the front of the thigh, no loss of sensation in the inside of the leg and foot, and causes weakness in the knee. L5 level of injury occurs when the pain radiates down the back of the thigh and there is a loss of sensation in the side wall of the calf and the back of the foot. Therefore, disc herniation L4 and L5 can be distinguished by the symptoms they cause. ...
One of the biggest problems of spine surgery are multiple incisions that must be made to reach this part of the body and, therefore, the subsequent scarring, a large blood loss and long-term interventions. Therefore, every time is often used more surgery minimally invasive spine, whenever possible as sequelae resulting are smaller, smaller scars, damage to the muscle mass is minimal and achieves rapid recovery patient. Furthermore, the results of such operations are the same as traditional surgery. Therefore, the minimally invasive spine surgery is most recommended for patients provided they are suitable so that she could make features. ...

Auditory or acoustic neuroma neuroma is a tumor that forms in the inner ear conductor. Despite being a benign tumor it is aggressive because when diagnosed in its early stages is not done, is growing in size and can reach compressing neural structures. Symptoms usually begin with a ringing or tinnitus on the side of the tumor which is accompanied by a gradual loss of hearing. In extreme cases the ear neurinoma can generate a hearing loss of the affected side. In most cases, it must be surgically removed. ...
A spinal tumor is abnormal growth in or around the spinal cord cells, with leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma tumors the most common nervous system. To affect such an important location for the human body, its symptoms cause neurological defects such as loss of sensitivity and strength, lack of control over the sphincters and back pain. It is very important to diagnose the medullary tumors of the nervous system in time to prevent the column from spreading and causing secondary spinal tumors or finish affecting other parts of the body. Its diagnosis can carry out a review of reflexes and muscle tenderness and a neurological examination. As their first symptoms are discovered, you must start as soon as possible a suitable and personalized treatment to prevent resulting in permanent injury. Corticosteroids, surgery and chemotherapy have been very beneficial to cure or ameliorate disease. ...
Brain tumors are formed because of the proliferation of cells that grow and multiply abnormally in the brain, being able to give blood vessels, cranial nerves, glands, bones, brain parenchyma and embryonic remains. It also may occur in two ways: by pressing brain areas for growth or invade surrounding tissue, in which case it is a malignant brain tumor. Symptoms of brain tumors include hand tremors, changes in mood, dizziness, unsteadiness and impaired alertness. Regarding treatment, absolutely it depends on where the brain tumor, degree of involvement and the patient's health are. Surgery is one of the most common measures to reduce the pressure that is suffering the brain. Also, radiation therapy and chemotherapy are used when surgery has been ruled out or have not achieved the desired results with the same benefits. ...
The herniated disc is the compression of the spinal cord or nerve root that occurs when a portion of an intervertebral disc moves. Hernias usually affect the disks are in the lower area of the back (lumbar) or neck (cervical spine). In the latter case we refer to cervical or cervical herniated discs. The pain caused by a hernia may extend from the back towards the leg and lead to leg pain, or to the arm. Most often, the rupture disk occurs by effect of natural aging and deterioration, but can also occur in younger people due to various causes. The trigger for a healthy disc to herniate can be a trauma, a violent blow or poorly executed effort. Cervical surgery may be necessary to reduce pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots, when pain is caused by a herniated disc or a bone of spinal canal. ...
It is the growth of a cell mass in the vertebrae. Cancerous tumors that originate in the spine are rare, but the column is commonplace to other cancers that spread. One in four cancer patients will develop a tumor that metastasizes to the spine and cause pain and injury. However, not all tumors are cancerous column. ...
Congenital malformations are defects in the baby's body that develop during pregnancy. Thanks to advances in medicine birth defects occur very rarely, only 15 of every 1,000 newborns in Spain. Most of these malformations are of unknown origin but may be caused by genetic abnormalities, drug consumption, maternal age, diseases that the mother has during pregnancy and even food that keeps during pregnancy. ...
Cranial endoscopy is a technique increasingly used in neurosurgery, being a little invasive to access the cranial cavity through an endoscope procedure. Through small holes in the body can be accessed with the endoscopic device to it to carry out different types of surgeries that were previously much more complicated operations and requiring completely open the skull. Also, thanks to the endoscope can be displayed hidden spaces of the brain, in all angles, making it very useful for interventions such as those to treat ulnar nerve entrapment (which occurs in the elbow). By using the endoscope in this operation it is accomplished the final scar is much smaller than in conventional procedures. ...
It is any intervention that treats problems in the brain and surrounding structures. It may be necessary to intervene a tumor, bleeding from trauma, blood vessel problems, infections of the brain, cranial pressure and certain diseases such as epilepsy and Parkinson's. ...
The spine surgery is to correct structural abnormalities of the spine that cause pain. It is indicated in cases where there is significant compression of the spinal cord or nerve roots, and when it is due undoubtedly to the structural abnormality detected. One of those treated by surgery of cervical spine injury is a herniated disc. Cervical surgery may be necessary to reduce pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots, when pain is caused by a herniated disc or a bone of spinal canal. Trauma surgery may also be required to stabilize the cervical spine and minimize the possibility of paralysis, when a fracture or dislocation causes a vertebral instability. Likewise, cervical surgery is also used in case of degenerative diseases. ...
Trigeminal neuralgia is a nerve disorder that causes stabbing pain or shock type in parts of the face. Your pain comes from the trigeminal nerve that carries the sensations of touch and pain from the face, eyes, sinuses and mouth to the brain. This enfermerdad affects usually adults but can affect anyone. ...
