SPINAL muscular atrophy (SMA) is a disease of the anterior horn
cells in the spinal cord.
Final fixation involves bony bridge fixation using an interference screw and anterior horn
fixation with suture fixation to the anterior capsule along with the addition of a suture anchor near the anterior horn
On October 11, he (Wahab) underwent an MRI investigation; he has significant osteochondral defects in the lateral tibial condyle (bone damage), advanced chondromalacia patella (damage to the cartilage under the knee cap) and suspicion of a tear to the anterior horn
of the lateral meniscus (outer knee cartilage).
Males with pronotal anterior horn
projecting over head, or with horn reduced to small truncate swelling; females with clypeal-frontal carina, and with pronotum more strongly convex in median anterior fifth .
Normal measurements of the posterior horn of the medial meniscus may vary, but the posterior horn is usually much larger than the anterior horn
(the posterior horn usually measures 12 mm to 16 mm in the sagittal plane in an adult), and approximately twice the size of the anterior horn
on sagittal magnetic resonance (MR) images.
We postulate that it could have induced spinal cord irritation, resulting in spontaneous, repetitive discharges of the anterior horn
In terms of the lower motor neurons, ALS affects the anterior horn
cells of the spinal cord, leading to limb weakness.
Spinal muscular atrophy (SMA) is a genetic, motor neuron disease characterized by wasting of the skeletal muscles caused by progressive degeneration of the anterior horn
cells of the spinal cord.
College of Medicine, Philadephia, PA) has drawn on a long career in neurology to write this authoritative text describing the differential diagnosis to be observed in 16 separate conditions, including vascular disease, epilepsy, anterior horn
cell disease, spinal cord disease, cranial nerves, and dementia.
Patients with flaccid paralysis have perivascular lymphocytic infiltration in the spinal cord, microglial nodules, and loss of anterior horn
The virus can attack the anterior horn
cells, causing acute flaccid paralysis resulting in a poliomyelitis-like syndrome.
5 cm posterior to the anterior border of the articular surface, just medial to the attachment of the anterior horn
of the lateral meniscus.
