As a precaution, it would help to remove the appearance of the screwed tail from the breeding standard, because the tail straightening will possibly lead to a reduction in the incidence of hemivertebrae in other vulnerable spinal segments and improvement of the future breed welfare.
For stabilization of he spinal segments there were used implants from porous titanium nickelide, cages and transpedicular fixators of own development No.
The study reports that the animals recovered significant locomotor function, regaining movement in all lower extremity joints, and that the transplanted neural stem cells turned into neurons which grew a "remarkable" number of axons that extended for "very long distances" over 17 spinal segments, making connections both above and below the point of severance.

Therefore, the objective of this study is to use a custom six-DOF device, which allows for full, free range of motion, to determine the axial center of rotation of the lumbar (L) spinal segments.
Myelopathy is associated with MRI-de-tected spinal cord lesions longer than three spinal segments and primarily involving the central part of the spinal cord on axial sections.
The possibility of established a dynamic transpedicular system to adapt to changes in the size of the stabilized spinal segments, resulting from, for example, the growth of the spine in patients of child and teenage years, achieved due to the possibility of translational movement along the sleeve screw within the length of the slot through which the contacted pair "sleeve-screw".
21) In cadaveric spinal segments with moderate disc degeneration, Fujiwara and associates found increases in segmental flexibility into rotation, flexion, and extension.
Input to the spinal cord from the implants arrived at the same spinal segments as those receiving input from the ureter, bladder and vagina.
The key is to reduce the compression of the spinal segments.
The effect of spinal cord injury on sexual response is generally discussed based upon the degree of completeness or incompleteness of the patient's injury and whether the neurologic damage affecting the individual's sacral spinal segments is an upper or lower motor neuron injury.
