What is intervertebral disc disorder with myelopathy lumbar region?

Nonsensical

Myelopathy
The spinal cord ends at about L-2, and most common disc issues are present at L4-5, and L-5-S-1. In order for a disc to affect the spinal cord, we are talking about a problem in the lower thoracic spine, or a rather unusual high lumbar disc fragment, perhaps. Myelopathy means involvement of spinal cord, so are we really using the term incorrectly here? Ask your doc about this.

What is intervertebral disc disorder with myelopathy cervical region?

Cord compression due

Open-uri20131025-11275-1h0k4tp
to disc issue in the neck region usually with degenerative disc disease & a small spinal canal diameter. Prior history of neck injury can accelerate degenerative changes & smokers accelerate this rate 4x over a nonsmoker. A herniated large disc can cause a myelopathy which is cord compressIon but it is most often associated with degeneration leading to a too narrow spinal canal for the cord.

Dr. Chris Faubel answered:

Is it possible to have cervical radiculopathy and intervertebral disc disorder with myelopathy cervical region?

Yes

Cervical
The same large disc herniation that causes pain to shoot down your arm can also cause myelopathy if it is so large to compress the spinal cord in the cervical region. I'm a Physiatry spine/pain specialist but would recommend seeing an Orthopedic spine surgeon or Neurosurgeon if myelopathy is considered.

Dr. Ken Yonemura answered:

What exactly is a sequestrated lumbar intervertebral disc?

HNP

Spinal_disc_protrusion
A sequestrated lumbar disc refers to migration of the central nuclear disc material through the outer layers that make up the anulus fibrosis and are then lodged in the spinal canal. Separation of the fragment from the disc from which it originates results in a sequestered fragment.

Hello, is there any long term complication for lumbar(L5 S1) discectomy and laminectomy for prolapsed intervertebral disc. Thank you?

Pain, instability

Intervertebral_disc
Discectomies work well in immediate pain control, but after some time (5-10 years) they may lead to instability and need for segmental fusion

lumbosacral spondylosis without myelopathy;spinal stenosis, other than cervical;lumbar region, with neurogenic claudication; thoracic radiculitis; ?

Exercizes

Claudication
There are two therapies for neurogenic claudication. Many patients who religiously perform the daily stretching and back strenghthening exercizes, get relief. For those who don't decompressive surgery can improve quality of life. Good luck.

Unsure of question

Most surgeons exhaust non-operative care before recommending surgery. Non-operative care can include medications (anti-infammatory arthritis type medicine or pain medications), physical therapy, activity modification, exercise, bracing, chiropractic care, interventional pain management (injections), or alternative medical approaches.

What is cause of a prolapsed intervertebral disc?

Nornal Aging

Aging
Disc prolapse, bulging, and herniation are part of normal aging and having one doesn't mean you you will have pain or disability. About 50% of asymptomatic individuals (without history of low back pain) aged 20-39 have bulging discs and about 21% have ruptured discs in their lumbar spine (low back).
