A set of findings that may be produced by incomplete or complete hemisection (damage to one side) of the spinal cord: Ipsilateral upper motor neuron paralysis involving muscles innervated by segments below the lesion. Ipsilateral lower motor neuron paralysis involving muscles innervated by the damaged segments. Contralateral loss of pain and temperature sensation beginning several segments below the level of lesion Ipsilateral loss of two-point discrimination and joint position sense below the level of lesion. Anesthesia to all sensations in dermatomes supplied by the damaged segments.
An incomplete cord injury that is difficult to diagnose and is characterized by paralysis and lack of sensation below the spinal cord injury. The paralysis of the extremity, with loss of discriminatory and joint sensation, is on the side where the spinal cord has been injured. Loss of sensation of pain and temperature is on the opposite side.
a syndrome of spinal cord hemisection with an ipsilateral upper motorneuron lesion below the level of the spinal cord involvement in association with an ipsilateral loss of light touch, vibration perception and joint position sense and a contralateral loss of pain and temperature
Nervous system disorder that occurs when the spinal cord has been partially cut through, i.e., the damage is only to one side of the cord. Effects on the rest of the body will depend of whether their nervous supply comes from the damaged side of the cord or the side that remains functional.
Brown-Sequard Syndrome occurs whcn one side of thc spinal cord is damaged. Common when injury is caused by a stab wound. On the injured side of the body there are decreased reflexes, while on the opposite side there is a loss of sense, pain and temperature.
occurs when one side of the spinal cord is damaged, common when injury is caused by a stab wound. On the injured side of the body there is reduced movement and reflexes, while on the opposite side there is a loss of sense of pain and temperature.
An incomplete spinal cord injury where half of the cord has been damaged. The Brown-Sequard syndrome is caused by a functional section of half of the spinal cord. This results in motor loss on the same side as the lesion and sensory loss on the opposite side. This syndrome is very often associated with fairly normal bowel and bladder function and does not prevent the person from being able to walk, although some functional bracing or ambulatory device such as a cane or crutch may be necessary.
The constellation of signs that follows hemisection of the spinal cord ( Ch. 13).
Brown-SÃ©quard syndrome, also known as Brown-SÃ©quard's hemiplegia and Brown-SÃ©quard's paralysis, is a loss of motricity (paralysis and ataxia) and sensation caused by the lateral hemisection of the spinal cord. Other synonyms are crossed hemiplegia, hemiparaplegic syndrome, hemiplegia et hemiparaplegia spinalis and spinal hemiparaplegia.
