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

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

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
Female (55) C4 C5 osteophyte complex indents ventral thecal sac/lateral recess. Disc protrusion contacts/flattens ventral hemicord ?
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. Your doctor will recommend treatment based on the severity of your symptoms. ...Read more

C5/6residual rparacentral disc osteophyte complex mild flatening & indent anterior aspect of cord-surgery with anterior fixation&fusion 2fix-soreneck?
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
Disc space narrowing & endplate spurring @ c4/5.Degen facet changs & uncovertebral joint hypertrophy contrib to neural foraminal narrowing @c3/4&c4/5?
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
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

Sounds like a fairly: Typical read for a male over 50 years old. Many findings are normal for age and sex as described here. They may not be related to symptoms or may cause symptoms. That is why a careful history and physical exam must be done in conjunction with imaging studies to fully assess the issues presented by the patient. ...Read more
What is diffuse degenerative endplate changes wth extensive multi level disc osteophyte disease /implication ?
MRI: L3/L4-disc bulging abuts thecal sac, superimposed facet degenerative changes, loss disc height. Could my L4-S1 fusion have made worse?
There is a condition: known as adjacent segment disease in which a fusion may lead to altered spine mechanics and place increased load on the next adjacent spine segment but there may also be a genetic basis for this -it may also be due to smoking as well as to being obese . May need to also focus on core strength ending exercises but talk to your surgeon too ...Read more

Cord compression: The typical treatment of patients with cervical cord compression and myelomalacia is decompression and fusion. The approach anteriorly or posteriorly is decided on by the neurosurgeon performing based on anatomy, prior surgery, or other medical problems. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Cervical spine MRI shows Disc osteophyte complex & facet & ligamentous hypertrophy from C5-C7, effacing & narrowing the thecal sac to 8.4mm. Explain..
Spinal MRI- multilevel disk & facet degen. scar tissue encasing S1,roots, Bulges &herniations, flat vent. dural sac, narrow foramin/spinal. Bad pain?
Degenerative disease: These findings may be the cause of your back pain. But how to take care of the pain is a whole other concern. You may do well with a combination of pain pills, muscle relaxants, physical therapy, and pain patches or liniments. Rheumatologists and orthopedists can give injections after doing tests to pinpoint the location and mechanism of the pain, such as pinched nerves.
