Mild To Moderate Left Foramina Stenosis Secondary To Uncovertebral Joint Hypertrophy
What is moderate to severe left neural foraminal stenosis due to disc osteophyte left subarticular disc extursion w/ cranial and caudal migration?
Hypertrophy is an increase in size of an organ or tissue, or a particular part of the body. Examples include muscle hypertrophy due to lifting weights, ventricular hypertrophy (enlargement of a ventricle of the heart) due to high blood pressure or other heart disorders, or prostatic hypertrophy (enlargement of ...Read more
At c5-c6 small diffuse disc bulge, moderate to severe left neural foraminal stenosis secondary to facet disease?
Question?: I am unsure what your specific question is. If these are the findings on a MRI/CT, the finding can be associated with cervical radiculopathy. The symptoms include pain in the lower neck, shoulder, arm, thumb and index finger. Treatments can range for medications, physical therapy, epidural injections to surgery. A spinal orthopedic surgeon or neurosurgeon can help decide on the best treatment. ...Read more
There is left uncovertebral hypertrophy at c5-c6 causing mild to moderate left foraminal stenosis. What does the mean ?
Spinal stenosis: This is a condition resulting from degenerative changes in the spine (for you, this would mean the neck). What actually happens is that the bone that protects the spinal cord becomes narrower. This causes pressure at different points on the spinal cord or nerve roots (causing numbness or other symptoms). Here's a great article which might help http://www.niams.nih.gov/health_info/spinal_stenosis/ ...Read more
Mri-very mild broad disc bulge with posterior element hypertrophic changes causing minimal neural foraminal stenosis inferiorly. What does this mean?
"Arthritic spurs": The radiologist that read the MRI is simply referring to arthritic spurs that are growing forward into the small space on each side of the spine where the nerves exit. Keep in mind that this is very common in people with no pain at all. This is only relevant if it correlates with your symptoms and physical exam findings. ...Read more
C6-7 mild left uncovertebral hypertrophy causing moderate narrowing of left neural exit vitamins. what this means?
What is disk osteophyte complex? Right Sided uncinate hypertrophy? Degenerative changes of the facets bilaterally? Mild to moderate changes of the facets asymmetric to the right?
Back x-ray: Sounds like normal for age but discuss with your Dr. ...Read more
Mri findings of lumbar report: moderate left neural forminal encroachment predominantly secondary to facet arthrosis. Please explain. Thank you?
Low back pain: The MRI findings that you describe are arthritis of the low back. There may be some pain radiating into the left hip and down the leg (sciatica) due to the overgrowth of the facet joint impinging on the nerve root. See a neurosurgeon to evaluate and treat the low back pain. ...Read more
What does acromioclavicular arthrosis with inferior spurring causing moderate outlet narrowing mean?
AC joint arthritic: This is a very common finding/wording on a MRI for shoulder pain.Basically it means your ACjt.(where your collarbone connects to the scapula bone or acromion)("shoulder separation joint") shows some narrowing and spur formation and may be 'impinging' on your rotator cuff tendon(s) w/ your arm in overhead or away from the body(abduction) positions.See an ORS for examination/correlation.GL! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does it mean to have moderately severe degenerative disc space narrowing in c4-6 with mild retrolisthesis with small uncinate process osteophytes?
2010 had cervical mri: moderate to severe foraminal narrowing right side c4-5. In 2013, mri: slight narrowing, no bony spinal stenosis. What to do now?
Depends if symptoms: If you are not having any problems then you do nothing. There is not great correlation between signs and symptoms of and results of spine mris. This means many people with relatively minor findings on MRI can have lots of symptoms like pain, and many people with significant findings on mris have very few symptoms. If you are having problems you need to discuss the results with the ordering doc. ...Read more
L5-S1,is a focal disc extrusion, mild central canal narrowing and left neural exit foraminal narrowing, with details as above. Is this urgency ?
My MRI results of the lower Lumber Spine. Mild degenerative changes of lumbar spine worse at L5-S1 level with broad based
> disk bulge and moderate facet joint hypertrophy causing minimal left sided
> neuroforaminal narrowing. Is there a non-surgical trea
I have moderately severe l5-s1 L4 disk degeneration. Mild disk bulge. Mild bilateral posterior facet and mild bilateral stenosis per MRI and hips hurt?
MRI L5-S1 level, posterior spurring identified. Osteophyte contacts S1 nerve root. Moderate to severe bilateral neuroforaminal stenosis. Suggestions?
My MRI reads, there is stable mild disc bulge which causes stable mild spinal canal stenosis and there is stable mild bilateral foraminal stenosis?
Good: Good. Those findings are extremely common in people with no pain at all (and no history of pain). ...Read more
What is eccentric protrusion to the left at the l4-5 disc space with mild lateral recess stenosis ?
Probably nothing...: ...To worry about. This is usually something i see from a radiologist's report and usually not something clinicallly significant. Lateral recess stenosis can cause irritation to the lower nerve root involved at the level (l5 in this case) if it is severe enough. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does Degenerative change,greatest at C5/C6 with moderate spinal canal and bilateral moderate to severe neural foraminal compromise mean?
Foraminal compromise: Implies the 6th cervical nerve root may be compressed ( leading to potential muscle weakness in the upper arm and or radicular pain down to the thumb or index finger ) Further information is needed ( exam findings ) to sort out the significance of both this and the central canal stenosis ( I would discuss this with your neurologist or neurosurgeon ) ...Read more
