Reduction in the diameter of the spinal canal due to new bone formation. May result in pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots.
This is a reduction in the diameter of the spinal canal. It may be congenital (a birth defect), the result of trauma or caused by arthritis. It may result in pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots.
Decrease diameter of the spinal canal due to new bone formation, which may result in pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots. This occurs most often in the lumbar spine(low back) and to a lesser extent the cervical spine, and even less, the thoracic spine.
Degenerative narrowing of the spinal canal, nerve roots canals and / or intervertebral foramina caused by bone and / or ligaments hypertrophy in local, segmental or generalized regions. This narrowing results in compression of spinal nerves and nerve roots causing lower back pain, neurogenic claudication and lower extremity pain.
a condition where the space available for the nerves becomes very small and the nerves become pinched and inflamed which leads to significant nerve pain
a degenerative arthritic spinal condition that causes pressure on the spinal nerves from a buildup of bone-spurs or spinal ligaments
a narrowing of the space that the nerves occupy inside the spinal canal
is a narrowing of the spinal canal, which places pressure on the spinal cord.
Narrowing of the width of the canal causing pressure on the verve held within it. This can occur in the central spinal canal and in the lateral (side) nerve root canals.
Narrowing of the holes in the vertebrae through which nerves and the spinal cord pass. This narrowing places pressure on nerve roots.
the narrowing of the spinal canal and nerve-root canal along with the enlargement of the facet joints.
Spinal stenosis is a gradual narrowing of the spinal canal caused by degeneration of the intervertebral discs (between the vertebrae) and arthritic changes of the facet joints and vertebrae themselves. While spinal stenosis may be congenital, it is usually the result of aging, and therefore is more often seen in the middle-aged or elderly. Spinal stenosis occurs most frequently in the lower back, and less often in the neck and upper back.
Usually caused by the gradual aging of the ligaments, joints and discs of the spine which narrows the central canal of the spine in which run the nerves to the legs so that leg pain, tingling or numbness occurs, usually when standing or walking, and which is commonly relieved by sitting down.
General term denoting narrowing of the spinal canal in the lumbar area leading to nerve root compromise; term often used for developmental abnormality that leaves a narrow, bony canal. There are four subgroups of this condition: achondroplastic stenosis, constitutional stenosis, degenerative stenosis, and combined stenosis.
Local, segmental, or generalized narrowing of the central spinal canal by bone or soft tissue elements.
narrowing of the nerve openings either around the spinal cord or nerve roots that can cause symptoms similar to a pinched nerve; pain is described either as an aching or an electrical feeling down the arm.
A syndrome that results in narrowing of the dimensions of the spinal canal due to disc disease, bony changes ligamentous thickening and congenital factors.
A condition where the tube area inside the bony part of the spine is too narrow, which produces pressure on the nerves leading to symptoms of numbness, weakness and pain.
the word "stenosis" simply means narrowing. There are many different types of spinal stenosis. The most common are lateral spinal stenosis, which refers to a narrowing of the intervertebral foramen (the opening between the vertebrae at the side through which the nerve root exits) and central spinal stenosis which is a narrowing of the canal itself.
narrowing of the spinal canal; this may occur in the central lateral recess or foraminal area of the spinal canal
A narrowing of the spinal canal that may produce a bony constriction of the cauda equina and the emerging nerve roots.
Narrowing of the vertebral column, resulting in pressure on the vertebral column or pressure on the spinal cord or nerve roots arising from the spinal cord.
the narrowing of the spinal canal (through which the spinal cord runs), often by the overgrowth of bone caused by osteoarthritis of the spine.
Narrowing of the width of spinal canals, causing pressure on the nerves.
Abnormal narrowing of the vertebral column that may result in pressure on the spinal cord, spinal sac, or nerve roots arising from the spinal cord.
A spinal condition in which the canal through which the nerves pass is smaller than normal, usually the result of disc degeneration. Nerves are frequently compressed as a result of the closing down of the spinal canal.
Spinal stenosis is a medical condition where the spinal canal narrows and compresses the spinal cord and nerves. This is usually due to the natural process of spinal degeneration that occurs with aging. It can also sometimes be caused by spinal disc herniation, osteoporosis, or a tumour.
