Treatment For Annular Tear Of Disc With Indenting Of Ventral Of Spinal Cord
Is surgery needed for indentation of the ventral thecal sac and spinal cord at t8-t9? Bcos dorsal central degenerative intervertebral disc protrusion
Will this require surgery?Central disc protrusion at t7-8 causes effacement of anterior thecal sac. Mild pressure on ventral aspect of thoracic cord.
Depends on symptoms: Disc surgery doesn't always provide relief. Xrays of mris of the spine may look terrible, but if you have no major symptoms, surgery is not indicated. If your symptoms are bothersome, but modest in degree, then physican therapy or an exercise program will help and a physiatrist can direct this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

MRI of my Cervical Spine
There is disc degenerative changes with associated impingement of the thecal sac , exit neuroforaminal encroachment.
MRI result?: So- what does this mean? It is common for MRI of the c-spine to show degenerative changes. Impingement of the thecal sac is not normally concerning. It is unclear what is meant by "exit neuroforaminal encroachment". Was there encroachment or not? If it is there, this normally means nerve root encroachment, which can cause symptoms that affect the arms. ...Read more

What is the prognosis for lumbar stenosis with bulging discs at l4/l5 and l3/l4 with spinal cord effacement and bilateral facet joint hypertrophy.
Mixed: Facet hypertrophy is a common change as people age; the amount of joint enlargement is more important than the fact that it is present. Stenosis is an issue if it is symptomatic. Weight control and exercise can help. Surgery can help in cases that don't respond to other treatment. The spinal cord usually ends at l1-2, so if it truly goes down to l5, there are other issues that need to be addressed. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

What is a t8-9 2mm left paracentral disk protrusion with slight deformity of the ventral thecal sac?
Herniated Disc: The ventral thecal sac is the front side of the thecal sac, which is a membrane that surrounds the spinal cord and some cerebrospinal fluid. A disk protrusion may cause the sac to deform in shape. This is due to a herniated disc. Neurologic symptoms may occur if the spinal cord is impinged upon. ...Read more

Cause of backpain?
Hello what is a small broad-band right paracentral disc protrusion causing anterial impression on thecal sac and displacement of neural structures?
Well..: Lots of people have this and usually doesnt amount to too much, but how to handle it depends on your symptoms and exam. Also one would have to physically see the films because what is a small herniation to someone may not be as small to another person. Also small foraminal herniations can be very painful.

What is neural forminal hypertrophic vhanges of the ligamentum flavum bilataterally bulging of intervertebral disc and facet arthropathy?
Anatomy: Not enough space here to write. If you google these things, you will find nice pictures to explain it all. Foramen is the "hole" in the bone where your nerve roots exit. Facets are the joints that hold vertebrae together. Ligamentum flavum is a ligament within the bones that runs down the spinal canal. All of these problems you mention can lead to back pain and nerve related pain. ...Read more
Back pain L1 L2 there is a milddegenerative disc change with a small left lateral disc protrusion into the inferior aspect of the neural foramen
This : This sounds like an excerpt from an MRI or myelogram of the lower spine. What's being described is a fairly typical finding for someone with degenerative disc disease and is not by itself too worrisome. If, on the other hand, you are having some back pain or some pain radiating down your left leg, then this disc problem could certainly explain those symptoms. There are a lot of things that can be done to treat this problem--if it is symptomatic--ranging from physical therapy to local steroid injections to surgery. I agree with the previous answer, which was that you should consider seeing a spine specialist, though i would add that going straight to surgery would probably be overly aggressive. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
