Post- chemonucleolysis collapse of the disc interspace. In Harry Farfan pointed out, on the basis of his research, that: This is a case of a 52 year old female wil,is underlying genomic spine disease. Blue Dot- The facet or zygoapophyseal joint. Progressive degeneration and tearing of the disc initiates the cascade: Rational therapy requires making a specific diagnosis first.

Facet degeneration then occurs in association with facet enlargement hypertrophy with subsequent erosion of the articular surfaces leading to other pathologic changes.

This can progress to the point of true segmental instability. The entire process can and is adversely affected by factors such as cigarette smokingenvironmental pollutants and lack of exercise. In this case, as shown on the right CT image the mass is a calcified chondroma. Note that the interior of the disc nucleus pulposus is distinct from it enveloping tough collagenous layered capsule annulus fibrosis. With this loss of segmental loss of support is the development of segmental dysfunction.

A degenerative spondylolisthesis has developed at L The facets are markedly degenerated, mechanically incompetent, eroded and contain fluid effusion.

In this illustration disruption of the posterior annulus of the disc has occurred. Juvenile Discogenic Disease disc nutrition may be poor because of the existing endplate abnormalities and premature disc collagen deterioration. A segment includes adjacent vertebrae and the intervertebral disc between them. Partial removal of the superior vertebrae allows a better appreciation of the normal anatomy, particularly the relationship of an exiting nerve root to the intervertebral disc.

Shown, to the left, is such a segment.

The Degenerative and Clinical Cascades Anatomy and Pathophysiology

Black Dot- The dural sac containing the pia and arachnoid layers, the nerve roots of the cauda equina and the exiting nerve roots. This process basically causes loss of segmental stability.

This mass has been chronically compressing and distorting the dural sac. Normal Spinal Anatomy This section, on the Clinical Cascade, begins with a depiction of the basic elements of a spinal segment.

It is only through the understanding of lumbar spine pathophysiology and its clinical correlates that specific rational treatment for patients becomes possible. This can be on a congenital genomic basis as well as a result of the process of aging as well as acquired insult and injury i.

The term disc is a biologic term. Iatrogenically Krkaldy Facet Problems Low back pain secondary to facet degeneration is a common phenomenon. This section, on the Clinical Cascade, begins with a depiction of the basic elements of a spinal segment. On the other hand the collagen itself may have not formed normally at birth due to congenital enzymatic deficiencies.

The Facet Zygoapophyseal Joints In the degenerative cascade disc degeneration leads to segmental dysfunction and stress is then directed to the facet joints. The MRI image in the center shows the degenerated facet joints and suggests a mass on the left side of the image compromising the central spinal canal.

HIZ tears have been directly correlated with low back pain. From left-to-right the figures above provided by William Kirkaldy-Willis show the results of progressive degeneration.

Low back pain secondary to facet degeneration is a common phenomenon. In genomic situations i. To the right is an actual specimen provided kirkalyd Harry Farfan demonstrating the beginning of degenerative changes.

In the degenerative cascade disc degeneration leads to segmental kirkaldu and stress is then directed to the facet joints. This work created a format by which these observations could be related to clinical diagnosis and subsequent rational patient therapy.

Back pain secondary to stress induced on the fact joints by medical procedures is uncommon but of great concern because it reflects lack of understanding by treating physicians.

Lesions such as this are often synovial cysts or chondromas from the degenerated facet. Post- artificial disc surgery rotational instability. In this example radial tears are seen williz the posterior annulus.
