Publisher and Date:(Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 2005)Vertebral artery tortuosity and loop formation are rare causes of cervical radiculopathy. The criterion standard for the detection of vertebral artery loop formation is digital subtraction angiography. Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging provide good accuracy in the evaluation of vertebral arteries. A case of vertebral artery loop formation is reported. The diagnosis was confirmed by 16-row multisection CT angiography findings of vertebral artery loop formation.

Publisher and Date:(Springer, 2005)The metal-related complications caused by orthopedic implants have long been a concern but these problems have been considered mostly in the field of arthroplasty or internal fixation of fractures. The recent prevalence of spinal instrumentation has evoked a similar concern among spine surgeons. Here we present a case of intraspinal metallosis adjacent to the pedicular hook occurring after treatment of vertebral fracture by posterior spinal instrumentation and fusion and causing paraparesis at the ...

Publisher and Date:(Blackwell Munksgaard, 2004)Myositis ossificans is a benign localized self-limiting ossifying soft tissue mass with unknown pathogenesis. It may be confused with a malignant tumor of bone or soft tissues especially in the early stages of the disease. In this report we present a case of myositis ossificans affecting unilateral psoas muscle which to our knowledge is a very uncommon location. There was no history of trauma. We describe the imaging findings and clues to early diagnosis of myositis ossificans.

Mediastinitis after open-heart surgery is a serious complication that has a decreasing incidence but still a significantly high mortality rate. Back pain may develop during the course of treatment for mediastinitis and this should suggest vertebral osteomyelitis in the differential diagnosis. Diagnosis of vertebral osteomyelitis may be difficult because of the insidious onset and delayed diagnosis and treatment may result in serious neurologic compromise and even death of the patient. ...
