Surgical treatment in paraplegia survey:

Cross-anastamosis in paraplegia below D9 started to give results. The last documented case operated 1 year ago in a patient from Israel came to the clinic 3 weeks ago. ECS and EMG performed showed that there is starting innervation of Th 11 and 12. The patient's lower limbs muscles became bulky and he could contract the lower abdominal muscles and some movements in the pelvic girdle. Crude sensation descended down to the inguinal level both sides. If you are more interested in this topic, click here!

Tuberculosis of the spine

In the last 2 years the incidence of tuberculosis of the spinal column is becoming more frequent and having different clinico-morphologic picture. This phenomenon is alarming sign as the residual of the use of dirty bombs and several radioactive materials in the surrounding dirty wars in the region. For demonstration click here! and here!

Anamnesis

bullet

The patient came to the clinic 16-January-2007 complaining of a bony lump in the right fronto-parieto-temporal region progressing in size. She noticed this several months without pain. She brought with her brain CT-scan with the diagnosis "fibrous dysplasia". Considering her age, unusual localization of the process for dysplasia, which usually invade the base of the skull, and rapid growth rate, intraossal meningioma was suspected and MRI was requested. 

bullet

MRI with contrast performed, showing typical intraossal meningioma with wide=spread invasion of the dura with carpet covering the three lobes with epicenter 3 cm above the right pterion.

bullet

A wide question mark incision was made and the bone flap was created 2 cm away from the pathologic bony structure. The center of the abnormal bone was bleeding profusely, and bleeding was controlled by bone wax.

bullet

The bone flap was elevated and sent for thermal deproteinization with temperature 125for 15 min.

bullet

The pathologic dura was removed with the meningioma carpet, which was abutting the anterior edge of the bone defect.

bullet

After thermal coagulation of the bone flap, it was more clear, that the pathologic bone was extending anteriorly, for what secondary bone flap was created anteriorly to make sure the radical resection of the tumor.

bullet

The suspected dura was also removed and 4 pieces of large size lyodura were necessary to use to close the dural defect.

bullet

The boiled bone was remolded by the high-speed drill so as to regain a normal-looking appearance. The hyperostotic bone was marble-like in consistency.

bullet

The 2 bone flaps were fixed together by nylon, and glue. The flaps were put back in place and fixed. and routine closure of the wound.

bullet

Smooth postoperative recovery.

Comments:

bullet

Fibrous dysplasia usually start early in life with young males and it invade the base of the skull. The dura under the fibrous dysplasia is normal and has no pathologic components.

bullet

Intraossal meningioma has dural involvement, with a carpet, which could be more wide than the hyperostotic part of the bone.

bullet

To prevent recurrence, it is mandatory, to remove all the involved dura and take if feasible 1-2 cm away the pathologic margins of invasion, as in this case.

bullet

It is unnecessary to use bone cement or metallic mesh, as in this case, the bone was deproteinized with thermal exposure of the bone flap for 15 min in the autoclave with temperature 125 degrees, Celsius.

bullet

During the 27 year period more than 20 operations were performed, returning the boiled bone flap to place. An interesting phenomenon, is the disappearance of the bone flap in the usual skull X-rays in the first 6 months, then its reappearance, despite the fact, that the flap is holding normal in place. It could be explained by the gradual wash-out of the calcium and then the gradual filling of the mineral after this period.
