Position and spinal bracing for pain relief in adults with metastatic spinal cord compression | Cochrane

Metastatic spinal cord compression (MSCC) is a serious complication of advanced cancer that can cause pain and mobility (movement) problems as well as paralysis. For many patients, a diagnosis of MSCC indicates the final stages of their illness. The spread of cancer to the spinal column can make walking unsafe. However, staying in bed risks deep vein thrombosis or pressure sores. Supporting the spine with spinal bracing (neck, thoracic spine, or lumbar support) may prevent further spinal collapse, but may be uncomfortable or ineffective.

Do you need to test for different types of sensation on the face?

I know that you test different modalities in the peripheral nervous system for the: Spinothalamic tract (pain, temperature, and light touch) Dorsal column (vibration, proprioception, and touch localisation / light touch). However, someone was saying that they had been told to test these modalities separately on the face as well - e.g. Do pin prick test and light touch separately. This doesn't make sense to me if the afferent pathways of the trigeminal nerve don't go through these spinal columns. Is this correct? Does the trigeminal nerve have afferent pathways that go through the Dorsal column or Spinothalamic tract and / or does it need to be tested separately?

Minimally invasive surgery for lumbar spinal stenosis

Recent trends in spine surgery, such as endoscopic and other “micro” techniques, promised less invasive procedures and better outcomes compared with conventional open techniques for decompressing nerves. Minimally invasive techniques are popular with patients, promoted by industry, and increasingly used by surgeons.1 However, recent studies have failed to report any clear benefits for patients.2 Is our hunger for new techniques based on little more than a gut feeling that new and smaller is always better and, if so, is it ethically justifiable to “test” these new techniques on patients? In a linked paper (doi:10.1136/bmj.h1603) Nerland and colleagues provide some hard evidence to help inform these important debates.3
