SURGERY: INNOVATIVE MINIMALLY INVASIVE SURGERY OF THE EXTRADURAL SECTION OF THE FILUM TERMINALE UNDER LOCAL ANAESTHESIA (SEE DEDICATED PAGE WITHIN THIS WEBSITE).
PATHOLOGIES: tethered cord syndrome and occult tethered cord syndrome may be associated with Low Lying Cerebellar Tonsils (LLCT) and Chiari malformation.
SYMPTOMS: most symptoms are usually subjective. Symptoms in the lumbar region and lower limbs are rarely objective and do not allow regular walking.
We filmed patients with walking disorders before and after our innovative minimally invasive surgery under local anaesthesia, documenting the incredible and immediate benefits.
CASE 1. A 38-year-old woman - CASE 2. A 37-year-old woman - CASE 3. A 48-year-old man
CASE 4. A 39-year-old woman - CASE 5. A 33-year-old woman - CASE 6. A 24-year-old woman
Below you can read abstracts of the scientific papers published by us in international journals of neurosurgery, "OPERATIVE NEUROSURGERY" and "PEDIATRIC NEUROSURGERY" (NOT OPEN ACCESS JOURNAL), describing FOR THE FIRST TIME:
- The minimally invasive surgery under local anaesthesia of section of the filum terminale externum for the treatment of tethered cord;
- The innovative diagnostic-surgical protocol which involves the association between prone lumbar magnetic resonance and the minimally invasive surgery with the section of the filum terminale externum under local anaesthesia for the treatment of the occult tethered cord.
See the dedicated pages within the website to associate the tethered cord or occult tethered cord with the low lying cerebellar tonsils (LLCT) or the Chiari malformation.
Minimal Incision Microsurgery (MIMS) surgical technique to filum terminale externum sectioning is performed in local anesthesia by means of a small skin incision of about 4 centimeters.
In 2020 were published in the scientific journal Pediatric Neurosurgery our innovative protocol. It involves the association between lumbar MRI in the prone position and minimally invasive surgery of the filum terminale extradural (externum) section under local anaesthesia.
We described this protocol for the first time in the international medical scientific literature.
The italian patients operated with this protocol are generally adult patients, and to date, they are over 350, the adolescent patients operated on have been the subject of the aforementioned scientific work.
In adult patients, the occult tethered cord can present itself as the only pathology or association with the presence of the tonsils slightly descended cerebellar, 0-4 mm (LLCT), or Chiari malformation.
We are a team of neurosurgeons who perform surgery for degenerative spine diseases and tethered cord and occult tethered cords. We also perform surgical treatment for peripheral nervous system pathologies such as traumatic lesions, entrapment and tumours.
INNOVATIVE SURGERY WE PERFORM:
-VERONESI Vanni MD: Minimally invasive surgical treatment in local anaesthesia of sectioning of extradural filum terminale for the treatment of the tethered cord and occult tethered cord, pure or in association with Chiari malformation type I.
- SACCO Carlo MD: Surgical treatment of "nerve transfer" in quadriplegic patients to resume the use of the hands.
