- What to do
How to treat osteochondrosis of thoracic surgical way
If conservative treatment is ineffective and the man continued to bother a lot of pain, surgery is performed. It is indicated in cases where the displacement of the vertebrae or intervertebral disc prolapse compressed the spinal cord or blood vessels that nourish it, disrupt the bladder and bowel, motor functions legs or arms. In the event of paresis or paralysis is not necessary to postpone surgery, since over time diminish the possibility of restoring damaged nerve fibers.
The operation typically includes two steps: removal of the reasons for which there is a pain syndrome (decompression), and subsequent stabilization of the spine. To decompress the following methods:
- Foraminotomy carried out in cases where part of the disc or osteophyte (bone spur) violates the nerve that exits the vertebral canal through radicular. This increases the size of radicular canal, and no nerve is compressed;
- Laminectomy - removal of the back of the vertebrae that protect the spinal canal. When osteochondrosis due to deformation of this part can compress the spinal cord;
- Laminotomy - removed only a fragment of the back of the vertebra;
- Facetectomy. Facet joint (between the articular processes of the vertebrae) may also put pressure on the nerve fibers, so they are removed to eliminate even minor infringements;
- Discectomy. If the protrusion of the intervertebral disc (its protrusion into the spinal canal without breaking the fibrous ring), or a hernia (displacement of the nucleus pulposus with rupture of the fibrous ring) is removed the entire disk or just a part of it;
- Korpektomiya - removal of the entire vertebral body and the adjacent disks to place the remote segment is inserted into the bone graft.
Removing a portion of the intervertebral disc or vertebra leads to disruption of the stability of the supporting structures of the body. This increases the risk of serious neurological disorders.
To avoid this, the vertebrae are rigidly fixed. In most cases, spinal fusion - pooling the vertebrae. Creating favorable conditions in which the bones of the spine grow together for a few months. In order to fill voids formed using bone grafts from the patient or donor and biological agents that stimulate bone growth. At the same time using the screws, plates and rods to impart stability. There is also a model of an artificial intervertebral disk, which avoids the use of vertebral fusion.
