Will a lumbosacral plexus mr neurography provide the images and information needed to confidently characterize an intradural enhancing lesion at l4?
The lumbar part of the spine is the low back. It is made up of five bones (most of the time) stacked one on top of the other. They are connected by disks, facet joints, and ligaments. These soft parts allow for movement controlled by the spinal muscles; the muscles can also keep it stiff when need be. The lumbar spine also contains and protects nerves to ...Read more
Will lumbosacral plexus mr neurography provide data to diagnose nerve damage caused by: intradural lesion at l4, 1.5 CM tarlov cyst at s-2, and damage from mini-arc bladder sling and partial removal?

Not typically: The batson's plexus significance is that it's a network of veins without valves. Typically veins have valves, due to the low pressure in the venous system, to decrease the chance of flow backup within the system. The batson's plexus connects the deep pelvic veins & thoracic veins, & with no valves can easily serve as conduit for infection/cancer cells to travel from pelvic structures to the spine. ...Read more
Check the label: Taking supplements can be helpful, depending on the reason for taking them. At times though, looking at what mother nature has to offer can be better. An example I use is that an apple, which has on average 6mgs of vit c, because of the 12, 000 other phytonutrients in it, will give you more antioxidant protection than taking 1500 mgs of vitamin c in pill form. Vitamins are food fragments. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends on extent: If it involves nerve root avulsion, it is irreversible, but if a stretch or local inflammation with compression, both conservative measures such as physical therapy and feldenkreis may make huge difference, and some brachial plexus injuries such as thoracic outlet syndrome do well with surgery. ...Read more
What are your thoughts on Kyani? Plexus? Advocare? Are they really as beneficial as they're said to be? What would be an affordable alternative?
They all "work": to some degree partly because they have your interest at first as something new and this causes a change in lifestyle... but usually only for a short time. It really "works" for those who actively sell it and recruit more sellers/users.
