An ostophyte is often referred 2 as a spur. In thritis as in the knee the body knows u have pain so 2 try 2 lower the #/sg in of pressure it layes more bone down 2 increase the wt bearing surface, wee c these as osteophytes, same with the hands and feet. In the foot usually the great toe. It is soft bone so a hard bump 2 them and lead 2 a small fx of ...Read more

Degenerative changes: What you are describing are common degenerative changes in your cervical spine. The changes can cause pressure on the nerve roots in your neck and can cause pain weakness and numbness in you neck and shoulder. This can be associated with a radiculopathy. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hard to say: The treatment options for someone with the MRI findings you are describing are based also on the degree of problem you have had with it and also with the understanding that many people can respond to nonoperative care. That being said, an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion is the time tested surgery for that condition and is reasonably safe and effective. Thank you for your question. ...Read more
Lumbosacral spondylosis with disc degeneration, mild posterior disc bulge at l3-4level indenting thecal sac, lateral canals & neural foraminae, treatment?
DDD=arthritis: Arthritis/spondylosis of the disc is ddd. Like wrinkles of skin, ddd happens to everyone to some degree. It starts to be evident on MRI late teens and early 20's, progressing with age. Ddd/arthritis does not = pain. So don't let the diagnosis bother you. Treatment is specific to the pain. If back pain, nonsurgical. Nsaids/tylenol, pt/core strength. For sciatica, above plus nerve root injections. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Xray shows mild multilevel degenerative disc disease with multilevel anterior endplate osteophytes. What does this mean?
Arthritis of spine: The end plates on either side of each vertebral bone articulate with the end plates of the ones above and below it. These can become enlarged over time with degenerative arthritis or following trauma. Eventually the space between the vertebrae becomes narrowed and pain sensitve structures like spinal nerves get pinched. ...Read more
C3-c4c4-c5 left paracentral osteochondral bar indenting thecal sac no foraminal stenosis. c5-c6 central osteochondral bar indenting thecal sac. means?
Spinal stenosis: That is another way to describe a condition known as spinal stenosis. One way to say it is that you have developed some bone spurs (oseochondral bars) that are narrowing (narrowing equals stenosis) the central part of the nerve canal but not the for amen. I would discuss your findings and treatment options with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
C4-5 right uncovertebral osteophyte/disc bulge complex broad disc bulge right neural foraminal stenosis & abutment of ventral cervical cord. Meaning?
Not meaningful: These findings on MRI of c spine are simply indicators of arthritic phenomenon with aging or wear and tear. These may or may not clinically corelate with the clinical symptoms or signs of a patient. Examining and ordering physician is in best position to tell if these findings corelate with your symptoms. See a neurologist. ...Read more
Bone spurs: Endplates are vertebral body structures adjacent to the intervertebral disc. Each vertebra has a superior and inferior endplate, with a few exceptions. As one ages , there may be osteophytes that grow from one endplate, around the disc, toward the adjacent endplate, forming a bony bridge between two vertebra. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Xray recently shows severe joint space narrowing involve the patellofemoral compartment with underlying subchondral sclerosis & osteophyte formation?
Osteoarthritis: These are classical findings of osteoarthritis being spelled out by the radiologist. Osteoarthritis develops as we lose the cartilage that is not seen on X-ray and usually leaves a "joint space" on films. During this degenerative cascade, sclerosis happens to the bone under cartilage and bone tries to increase its surface area when weakened by forming spurs called osteophytes. Good luck. ...Read more

Not sure of your ?: If you're asking about the imaging results you posted, you have a bone spur that is growing off of two of your vertebrae. It is large enough that it is pressing against your spinal cord and possibly some of the nerves that are exiting from the spinal cord.

Aging changes: MRI results of the spine often sound terrible, when in fact they represent what we already know....that you are over 45 and your back hurts. What you really want to know from MRI results is if there are any abnormalities which correspond to your specific location and type of pain, which are likely to benefit from having surgery. Speak to your surgeon about his or her interpretation of the films ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does all this mean? C2-3 small disk osteophyte complex with ventral thecal sac deformity. C4-5 disk osteophyte complex with ventral cord flattening. C 5-6 Facet arthropathy and uncovertebral hypertrophy is severe right neural foraminal stenosis. Face
Degenerative: Basically refers to degenerative (aging) changes of the spine. Disk/osteophyte refers to bone spur and/or disc protrusion, and facet/uncovertebral hypertrophy refers to arthritis of the joints at the back part (facets) and sides (uncovertebral) of the vertebrae. Ventral thecal sac deformity and ventral cord flattening refer to slight pressure on the spinal cord. Stenosis refers to pinched nerve. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
