Features of computer tomography in planning surgical treatment of thoracic spine herniation
Keywords:thoracic spine, disc herniation, CT-myelography
The results of 20 patients surgical treatment, been operated in the I spine clinic from 2005 to 2010 because of thoracic spine herniation were analyzed. For diagnostics computer tomography (CT) and CT-myelography were used.
Significant improvement was observed at 6 patients, improvement — at 12, at 2 —there were no changes after operation.
Thus, CT is an informative method for identifying and confirming thoracic spine hernias calcification. CT-myelography allows to determine intervertebral discs damage level and to reducing frequency of operational mistakes.
