Abstract

Background and Objectives: Neck pain due to poor posture, if neglected for long time, can lead to development of the cervical spondylosis. This study was designed to analyze the relation between symptoms and signs originating from the cervical spine and the duration of computer use.Methods: A comparison of a group of male subjects who work on computer with those who do not work on computer whose ages range between (30 - 50) years was done for liability of cervical spondylosis. Any subject whose BMI is more than 25Kg/m2 was excluded. Likewise any subject with recognized evidence for predisposition to develop spondylosis was excluded.Employee from different establishments in Erbil City (200 Subjects), over a period of six months from January / 2008 were included in the study.Ninety nine subjects who use computer and hundred and one non-computer user. Subjects were subdivided into: First group: Computer user. Second group: Non-computer user. In both groups the duration of occupation ranges between four to sixteen year and hours of working/week range between (22-32 hours). The (99) subjects who work on computer each of them was evaluated for computer work station and asked about his posture during use of computer and asked if he takes a break time when he work for long hours.The difference between comparable subdivisions of the studied subjects was tested by the Chi-square test concerning the frequency of spondylosis in each of them.Results: Cervical spondylosis was statistically significant among those who use computer (P< 0.05).Conclusions: Long term use of computer with bad posture and with out break time increase liability for developing cervical spondylosis in comparison of (same age group, same duration of occupation ,and same hours of working) but not using computer. Proper posture and take a break time when using computer for long time is necessary.

Abstract

Background: Cervical spondylosis myelopathy (CSM) is a common cause of disability in older persons. Because spondylosis is a universal finding as the patients aged.Objective: To assess the demographic and management of cervical spondylosis in a sample of Iraqi patients.Methods: This is a prospective clinical study, carried out over the period from January 2013 to December 2014, and included 25 patients with cervical spondylosis myeloradiculopathy referred for surgical intervention in Neurosurgical Department in the Al-Imamein Al-Kadhimein Medical City. General examination and full neurological assessment were performed, as well as relevant investigations, particularly; radiological assessments. All of the patients were subjected to surgery, with 17 patients (68%) were treated with laminectomy and foraminotomy, while the remaining 8 patients (32%) were treated with laminectomy only.Results: They were 14 males and 11 females, slightly affects males more than females, aged 38 to 82 years it is more common in 5th and 6th decades of life, and in rural than urban areas. Myeloradiculopathic features were the most common presenting ones with C5-C7, which were the most affected levels. General examination and full neurological assessment were performed, as well as relevant investigations, particularly; radiological assessments. All of the patients were subjected to surgery, with 17 patients (68%) were treated with laminectomy and foraminotomy, while the remaining 8 patients (32%) were treated with laminectomy only. More than half of the patients were showed slight improvement in their complaints, while significant improvement occurred in more than 28 % of patients. Despite that, 20% of patients showed no improvement in their symptomatology, however; no reported deterioration was noticed in the study.Conclusion: Myeloradiculopathic feature were the most common presenting features with C5-C7 was the most level affected. Laminectomy with foraminotomy was surgery of choice in tow third of patients, with remaining one third underwent laminectomy only.Keywords: Cervical spondylosis, spinal cord compressionCitation: Jaizany AJA, Nema IS, Hassan YM.

Abstract

ABSTRACTBackground and Objective: Cervical spondylosis is a broad term usually used to denote achronic degenerative condition generally ascribed to progress in age and other possible riskfactors. The disease is common and may lead to possible neurological deficits. There is thus aclear need for identifying its probable risk factors in order to better understand their controland prevention.Patients and methods: A case control study conducted at Duhok's Center for RheumaticDiseases during the period1st April - 30th September, 2014. Depending on the presence ofsymptoms and radiologic findings, 129 patients were selected and registered as ‘cases’ andanother 129 patients without radiological abnormalities were collected and registered as‘controls’. For each participant age, gender, marital status, weight, height, smoking status,family history, drug use and number of pillows were recorded. In addition, for men, thehistory of wearing Kurdish turban (Shashek) was recorded. The increased risk was estimatedby calculating the odds ratio and 95% CI.Results: Overall, age was found the most significant risk factor in both genders (OR13.55).For women, the highest odds ratio related to chronic drug use (OR 4.01) followed by BMI(OR 3.44) and sedentary work (OR 2.64). For men, the highest odds ratio related to Shashekuse (OR 16.8) followed by sedentary work (OR 5.6) and smoking (OR 4.18). Physicalactivity of 150 min/week gave a statistically significant negative association in both menand women (OR of 0.34 and 0.18 respectively with a p value <0.05).Conclusions: Radiological cervical spondylosis is positively associated with aging andsedentary work in both genders. Significant positive associations were found with chronicdrug use and high BMI in women compared to significantly high association with theKurdish male turban (Shashek) and smoking in men.

خلفية الدراسة: ان الفقار العنقي هو عنوان عريض يشير الى حالة اضمحلال مزمنة تعزى بشكل عام الى تقدم العمر اضافة الى عوامل اختطار محتملة. ان المرض شائع ويمكن ان يتسبب بمعاناة كبيرة وخلل عصبي وعليه فهناك حاجة واضحة للتعرف على عوامل الاختطار المحتملة. لاجل ذلك اعدت هذه الدراسة لتقصي عوامل الاختطار المحتملة لدى قاطني محافظة دهوك. الاشخاص والطرق: أجريت الدراسة في مركز دهوك للامراض الروماتزمية للفترة من 1/4 الى 30/9 /2014.اعتمادا على وجود التغيرات الشعاعية (علامات الفقار) في اشعة العنق تم اختيار (129) مريض ومن المراجعين الذين لم توجد عندهم تغيرات شعاعية تم جمع (129) حالة ضابطة. هذا وقد تم اخذ المعلومات التالية من كل المشاركين: العمر، الجنس، الحالة الزوجية، الوزن، الطول، التدخين، التاريخ المرضي، استعمال الادوية، عدد وسائد النوم اضافة الى ارتداء غطاء الراس التقليدي لدى الرجال. تم استعمال برنامج (SPSS) في التحليل الاحصائي واعتمد المستوى (%0.05) كفارق احصائي معنوي كما اعتمدت نسب الـ(odds ratio and 95% CI) كمقياس للاختطار.النتائج: كان العمر اكثر عوامل الاختطار قوة لدى الجنسين (OR 13.55). بالنسبة للنساء كانت عوامل الاختطار كالاتي: استعمال الادوية (OR 4.01) معدل كتلة الجسم (OR 3.44) ثم العمل كثير الجلوس (OR 2.64) اما الرجال فكانت كالاتي: ارتداء غطاء الراس التقليدي (OR 16.8) العمل كثير الجلوس (OR 5.6) ثم التدخين (OR 4.18). أظهر النشاط البدني بمعدل (%150دقيقة أسبوعيا) علاقة عكسية بمستوى احصائي معنوي ( (P value <0.05لدى كل من الرجال (OR 0.34 ) والنساء ( OR 0.18). الاستنتاجات: ان الفقار العنقي المتسم بالاعراض يرتبط بعلاقة ايجابية مع العمر والعمل كثير الجلوس لدى كلا الجنسين كما ان هناك علاقة ايجابية بمستوى احصائي معنوي مع استعمال الادوية ومعدل كتلة الجسم لدى النساء مقارنة بارتداء غطاء الراس التقليدي والتدخين لدى الرجال

Abstract

Background: Cervical spondylosis is a degenerative disease of the cervical spine and can occur at any age but mostly after 5th decade. Objectives: is to focus a light on the clinical features, radiological findings and the result of the surgical treatment with comparison to the global results in the same field.Patients and method: This is a prospective study of 50 patients with cervical spondylosis managed with surgery at surgical specialty hospital in the medical city, Baghdad, from the period from Jun. 2011 till Jan. 2012. The clinical, radiological, neurophysiological studies together with surgical outcome were all reviewed and included in the study.Results: Patients were divided into two age groups; those below 50 years had their disease mostly of traumatic cause and their presentations were mostly of motor dysfunctions. Older patients had the disease process of degenerative cause and much slower progress and they were mostly complaining of sensory problems. Conclusions: Early surgery was the most beneficial in both groups, and bearded less morbidity to the patients. Keywords: Cervical spondylosis. Dysphagia. Vertigo. Osteophytes. Myelopathy. Laminectomy and Corpectomy.
