What does broad based posterior disc protrusion effacing anterior thecal sac mean on an MRI report?
Disc protrusion: The disc is in the front part of the spine. The spinal cord and nerves are in the canal within the spine. They are encased in a "sac" containing fluid. If a disc is partially damaged, it will have a weaker outer rim which will bulge out and may compress the cord (esp in neck) or the nerves(in the lower back). Slight bulge may cause disc pain which is usually localized in the back. ...Read more

Mri says postero central and paracentral disc protusion at l5 s1 level causing thecal indentation encroachment upon bilateral canals with compressio?
Not exactly: sure of the question, but you are describing a disc protrusion(herniations) which is pressing on the sac that encloses the spinal cord and cauda equine, and is also pressing on the L5 nerve roots. There is no mention of how severe this is. Talk to your doctor about whether this might be causing your symptoms. Not all disc protrusions produce symptoms. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can cervical broad disc protrusion effacing the thecal sac cause lesions above the protruding disc?
No-A disc protrusion: at one level of the spine will not create problems in adjacent areas. However, it's not at all uncommon to have abnormalities at more than one vertebral level. Aging, arthritis, injuries and other issues can cause multilevel disk abnormalities. Hope this helps! Dr. Anne ...Read more
Disc bulge w/ post left lat disc protrusion c6-7 mild central/left neural foramina stenosis hemangioma seen w/in left lateral inferior aspect of c4?
Disc herniation: Surgical intervention to the c6-c7 disc herniation is recommended or warranted if conservative care management fails to provide any adequate pain relief and/or progression of neurological deterioration. As for hemangioma and mild stenosis at c4, no surgery is recommended. ...Read more
Disc desccation with posterior diffuse disc bulge at L5-S1 level mildly indenting the-cal sac and moderately narrowing bilateral neural formina?
Pushing on Things: If these herniated disks are causing pain then getting epidural injections may be helpful. However if you are doing OK and no pain, then I would leave them alone. Eventually they will heal as much as they can, but can take as much as 6-9 months to resolve. Unless you are getting increased pain or weakness, I wouldn't worry. Also start core strengthening exercises when you are feeling better. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Broad based disc protrusion at l4-l5 level compressing anterior thecal sac and bilateral travers nerve root and narrowing neural reces
Prefer no surgery: Sounds like a fairly large disc protrusion, but if no progressive muscle weakness, atrophy or bladder involvement, might be able to get conservative PT, stretching, exercise, acupuncture, and try to allow disc to desiccate and shrink, which it may well do over 8-9 months. Key issue is presence or absence of neurological involvement. Steroids may help. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
