Disc osteophyte complex is the development of osteophytes affecting more than one intervertebral disk or spinal vertebrae. Osteophytes or bone spurs develop in the musculoskeletal system due to normal wear and tear as you age. Disc osteophyte complex occurs when more than one spinal vertebra or intervertebral disc is affected by osteophytes, which are more commonly referred to as bone spurs.
C56: There is a small posterior disc osteophyte complex indenting the ventral thecal sac without cord impingement seen. There is mild bilateral neural foraminal narrowing. C67: There is a small posterior disc osteophyte complex indenting the ventral thecal sac without cord impingement seen.
Oct 16, 2014 C34: Mild central disc protrusion with no significant spinal canal or neural foraminal narrowing.
C45: No significant spinal canal or neural foraminal narrowing. C56: Disc osteophyte complex with mild symmetric disc bulge, which produces mild bilateral neural foraminal narrowing and effacement of the anterior CSF space. Sep 24, 2012 Disc is the soft tissue located between two vertebral bodies.
Osteophytes are minimal bulgings of bone at the edges of vertebral bodies. Disc osteophyte complex refers to the bulging of disc along with osteophyte formation at C5C6 level (between the fifth and sixth cervical vertebral bodies). Feb 02, 2013 C34: Mild loss of disc height with desiccation of the intervertebral disc, There is a broad based posterior and left paracentral disc osteophyte complex which is effacing the CSF anterior and posterior to the cord.
Disc osteophyte complex is a term used on MRI of the cervical spine to denote the presence of disc protrusion andor marginal endplate osteophytes resulting in narrowing of the cervical canal. The term was introduced early in the practice of MRI as distinguishing between disc and osteophyte can be difficult or impossible on T2 Cervical disc osteophyte complex originates in the vertebrae of the neck and is one form of cervical disc degeneration. Symptoms vary depending on the degree and location of the degeneration.
Cervical discs are fluidfilled sacs that act as cushions between the bony surfaces of vertebrae. Cervical Posterior disc osteophyte complex and disc herniation C4C5, C5C6 and C6C7. From 40 days, Pain at left shoulder blade radiating towards left arm till finger, tingling and numbness sensation in left hand, pain at biceps and triceps.
Disk osteophyte complex at c5 c6 cause effacement I have pain in neck& L shoulder blade, pins& needles arm. Could cervical kyphosis and osteophyte bulge effacing CSF in my C5C6 cause these symptoms? Parathesia cspine. During the traumatic event, the disc sustains trauma that results in worsening of the disc pathology while the osteophyte portion of the osteophytedisc complex remains essentially unchanged.
This worsening of the disc pathology in turn results in new or increased irritation or impingement of the neural elements. Bone spurs can occur in any of the joints of the body, and are commonly found in the cervical and lumbar spine. Watch Lumbar Osteophytes (Bone Spurs) Video The term" bone spurs" might elicit images of radiating spikes, but bone spurs (osteophytes) are actually rounded and scalloped.
Nov 03, 2014 The term Disc Osteophyte Complex is given to a pathological condition where multiple spinal vertebrae intervertebral discs get affected by formation of Bone Spurs or Osteophytes. Bone Spurs or Osteophytes develop due to normal wear and tear of the body normally due to aging because of which the spine tends to get weak There is mild broad based posterior disc osteophyte complex at C5C6.
Multilevel neural foraminal C5-c6 posterior disc osteophyte complex, severe on left, moderate on right, at C5C6, caused by uncinate hypertrophy at each level No evidence of central canal stenosis, cord compression or cord signal abnormality. Disc osteophyte complex is a condition that can develop anywhere along the spinal column. Specifically, this condition describes a situation where a patient has experienced bone spur growth on more than one spinal vertebra or vertebral body.
