Spinal stenosis is narrowing of the spinal column cavity, which is formed by the arches of the vertebrae (spinal cord location). This is a common pathology which mainly occurs among elderly people. Stenosis of different degrees is diagnosed among 4% of patients over 50. 20% of people over 60 also suffer from this disease, while 67% of them don’t have any symptoms, but 33% of patients notice the considerable decrease in the quality of their lives due to the neurological symptoms.

Diagnostics of Spinal stenosis

MRI is the most informative method of spinal stenosis diagnostics, but among its disadvantages are its high cost and low availability (not every clinic has the necessary equipment). As an alternative, the myelography (X-rays) or CT scan is used.

Electromyography is also performed as an additional method of the examination. It allows doctor to estimate the speed of impulses passing through the nerves, obtain data on the state of the lumbar plexus, and each individual nerve root of the spinal cord.

Treatment of Spinal stenosis

Conservative and surgical methods of treatment are performed. Conservative therapeutic measures are aimed at the improvement of the patient’s quality of life.

The complex tactics that are used include the following aspects:

  • Lifestyle modification
  • Weight loss
  • Exercise therapy
  • Massage
  • Physiotherapy
  • Medicamentous analgesic therapy
  • In case of the intensive pain syndrome, a doctor prescribes the blockade with the local anesthetics and glucocorticoids

Progression of symptoms, ineffectiveness of conservative therapy and a poor patient’s quality of life are indications for the surgical intervention.

Depending on the cause and the type of the spinal stenosis, the following surgeries are performed:

  • Surgical decompression. The fragments of the spine that compress the nerve roots are removed. These may be the spinous processes, the arcs of the vertebrae, intervertebral joints, and yellow ligament. 
  • Stabilizing operations. Usually they complement the surgical decompression in order to avoid spinal instability after surgery (it occurs in 25% of patients). The dynamic systems of interspinous fixation are implanted. With their help, the vertebrae are firmly bonded one to each other and the spine retains its mobility.
