What happens if the ventral root of the spinal nerve is cut?

What happens if the ventral root of the spinal nerve is cut?

Weakness or paralysi: The ventral root contains the motor fibers which control our muscles. Because muscles have multiple nerve roots innervating them the result may only be weakness in a particular group of muscles or could be paralysis if the particular nerve root is the dominant root. ...Read more

If ventral root of a spinal nerve were cut what will be the result in the tissure?

Motor loss: The ventral root of the spinal nerve carries the motor fibers, where the dorsal root carries the sensory fibers. So if the ventral root of a nerve was cut, a motor loss would occur; i.e. Either severe weakness or paralysis in the involved muscle. Thank you. ...Read more

If the ventral root of a spinal nerve were cut, what would be the result in the tissue or region that nerve supplies?

Atrophy or wasting.: When a muscle is denervated, it atrophies or 'shrivels up'. This is why patients who had polio have small paralyzed limbs in the effected distribution. ...Read more

What is facet hypertrophy l Flatten the ventral thecal sac and encroach upon the lateral recesses abutment of the traversing nerve roots?

What is facet hypertrophy l Flatten the ventral thecal sac and encroach upon the lateral recesses abutment of the traversing nerve roots?

Pain and weakness: Can result from compression of the nerves that exit at the level of the narrowing caused by bony overgrowth of the facets (the area where the vertebral bones meet) In the lumbar region the nerves exit at a higher level and "traverse" the space next to the facets below this before they exit the spinal canal at a lower level. Discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

It's complicated: As we age, we are prone to get basically arthritis of the spine, often referred to as spinal stenosis as well as changes in the discs between the spine bony vertebrae. Some have these changes earlier. If you have any arm or leg weakness, loss of control of bowels/bladder, then you will need to see a neurologist to further examine you and evaluate your symptoms in the context of the MRI findings. ...Read more

What happens if a ventral hernia ruptures?

What happens if a ventral hernia ruptures?

Strangulated hernia: The greatest danger of a hernia is the risk of strangulation. This occurs as a result of the intestines becoming trapped in the hernia and the blood supply becoming constricted. This is a sequela of an incarcerated hernia (one in which the hernia cannot be pushed back in). Incarcerated hernias should be evaluated immediately to prevent strangulation. ...Read more

What are the dorsal and ventral surfaces on humans?

What are the dorsal and ventral surfaces on humans?

Anatomic Position: During the study of Human Anatomy, it is important to understand what "anatomic position" is.
Anatomic position is when a human is facing forward, with the arms an hands at the side, with the palms facing forward. Everything in the front in anatomic position is anterior, in back posterior. The dorsoventral axis is used in vertebrate anatomy. ...Read more

Please help! What happens when a ventral hernia ruptures?

Increased size: Ventral hernias don't rupture to the outside world, the skin holds the abdominal contents in place. However, they can become very large and difficult to repair if the contents cannot be easily returned into the abdomen during the repair. ...Read more

Do ventral hernias cause problems in children?

Do ventral hernias cause problems in children?

Sometimes: A ventral hernia is any hernia that is present along the front surface of the abdominal wall. This is most often seen at the umbilicus (belly button). Umbilical hernias in children are very common. It is generally recommended to wait till after age 5 to repair these hernias unless the child is having pain due to the hernia or it is very large, since they will often close spontaneously. ...Read more

What are some common causes of ventral hernias?

What are some common causes of ventral hernias?

Congenital/BornWith: A ventral hernia is a defect in the musculature of the front of the abdominal wall. This occurs most commonly at the belly button, arising from a defect that many people are born with. Ventral hernias are also common after prior abdominal surgery--these are called incisional hernias. Regardless of its origin, these will occur more commonly after heavy lifting, obesity, etc. ...Read more

What is the ventral thecal sac in the lower back?

What is the ventral thecal sac in the lower back?

Within the bony ---: Structures of the back, the spinal cord (sc), which is the continuation of the brain, lies. The sc is surrounded by a layer, called the thecal sac. The front aspect of this is called the ventral t sac, while at the back, its the dorsal (or posterior) t sac.
Its present from the neck down to the lower back. This sac contains the spinal fluid which bathes the sc, providing it nutrition. ...Read more

Can you die from ventral hernia?

Can you die from ventral hernia?

Possible, but rare: Although death from a ventral hernia is rare, they can cause significant discomfort, enlarge, and cause life threatening problems that require emergency surgery, which is usually successful at saving the life, but not always so for repairing the hernia. See a surgeon interested in hernia repair for a more complete evaluation. Find one on the Americas Hernia Society website. Hope this helps! ...Read more

What are the symptoms of a ventral hernia?

Lump, pain: A ventral hernia is a defect in the abdominal wall muscle that allows abdominal organs to protrude causing a lump or mass. If these organs are squeezed or trapped in the defect then pain can ensue. Pain is relieved by reducing the hernia contents or laying down. ...Read more

Is there a good way to prevent ventral hernias?

Is there a good way to prevent ventral hernias?

No: Most ventral hernias are ones that you are born with or develop after having prior abdominal surgery. While you cannot prevent these hernias, they are more likely to enlarge in response to constant strain from obesity and/or excessive lifting. Furthermore, "the enemy of good is better": excessive core exercises can hasten the development of these hernias. ...Read more

Would an incarcerated ventral hernia always be accompanied by intense pain?

No--depends on...: ...What is "stuck" within the hernia. The most common tissue "incarcerated" is fat from just beneath the muscles; this is often painless. If it is internal fat from the omentum, this can be painful. If it is a loop of intestine, this causes a bowel obstruction or even compromise of the blood supply to the intestine ("strangulated" hernia)--this is usually very painful. ...Read more

Are there any treatments for ventral hernia?

Hernia treatments: There are no medications to cure a hernia. Treatment is generally an operation most commonly involving mesh. Laparoscopic and open surgical procedures are both possible. Occasionally high risk patients will be instructed to avoid surgery and a binder will be recommended. However, all hernias carry a risk of incarceration and strangulation. Outcomes with elective surgery are usually better. ...Read more

Can a ventral hernia be repaired?

Can a ventral hernia be repaired?

Yes: Ventral hernia's are very frequently repaired. To approaches are open surgery or laparoscopic surgery. Larger repairs, greater than 1 cm are repaired using mash. Smaller hernias are repaired primarily with suture. Most repair only if symptomatic meaning pain or discomfort. There is a small risk of bowel incarceration or strangulation which presents with escalating pain and a non-reducible lump. ...Read more
