Factors Influencing Outcomes of Neurologic Deficits Due to Spinal Diseases
This study is designed to evaluate those factors that may facilitate the recovery of those patients who suffer from motor weakness or sensory deficits due to pathology in the spinal cord.
- Predictive Outcomes using Diffusion Tensor Imaging in Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy
The purpose of this study is to determine the role of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) in the diagnosis and treatment of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM). We are looking to enroll 30 patients undergoing cervical spinal surgery with CSM and 30 patients undergoing cervi...
- A Multicenter, Randomized, Double-Blind, Controlled Study of EXPAREL for Postsurgical Pain Management in Subjects Undergoing Open Lumbar Spinal Fusion Surgery
The purpose of this study is to see how safe and effective the addition of a drug called EXPAREL is in pain relief during open lumbar spinal fusion surgery compared to the usual pain treatment (bupivacaine HCL).
Approximately 194 subjects will be asked to take part i...
- Recovery from Neurologic Deficits Caused by Spine Pathology
Neurologic deficits caused by degenerative spine pathology are very common. This research study aims to create a database of patients who suffer from neurologic deficits caused by degenerative spine pathology. Essentially this database will allow surgeons to better educate pat...
