Summary:

The article highlights debatable questions concerning the effectiveness of surgical treatment of osteoporotic vertebral fractures. The reasons of unsuccessful outcomes of vertebroplasty are analyzed. A combined method of surgical treatment is proposed, including vertebroplasty and full-endoscopic foraminotomy with a combination of local and ra-dicular pain syndrome caused by stenosis of the intervertebral foramen. A clinical example is given.

Summary:

Objective: to develop an algorithm for surgical treatment of pain and spasticity in patients with consequences of spinal cord injury. Materials and Methods. The basis of the algorithm initiated a retrospective study of results of surgical treatment of 273 patients with pain and spastic syndromes after spinal cord injury, which consistently met neuromodula-tion techniques and destructive surgery. Results. The developed algorithm tested in 166 patients with pain and spastic syndromes provided positive results in 88.6% of cases with spastic and in 80.4% of observations for pain and spastic-pain syndromes. Conclusion. The proposed algorithm allows systematizing neuromodulation methods and so-called «radical» destructive operations in the treatment of pain and spasticity, and thereby improving the results of rehabilitation of patients with consequences of spinal cord injury.

Summary:

Objective: Specification of indications for surgical treatment of Chiari malformations Type I (CMI) in combination with scoliosis without syringomyelia. Material et Methods: The article describes the results of treatment of children with Chiari malformations Type I (CMI) in combination with scoliosis without syringomyelia. The decompression surgery of the posterior fossa was made in 30 patients with CM I. All patients varied in the degrees of scoliosis. Results were evaluated including clinical and radiological survey, data of computer angiography and ultrasonic diagnostics of head and neck vessels in the preoperative and postoperative periods. The behavior of the angle of the spinal deformity in patients after decompression surgery of the posterior fossa was evaluated. Results: It has been found out that scoliosis convincingly regresses after this operation, if the angle of curvature of less than 30 degrees. Conclusion: The presence of vascular pathology at the level of the cranio-vertebral joints should be taken into account in the determination of indications for surgical treatment of patients with CMI in combination with scoliosis.
