It extends from the Description Forming the anterior wall of the vertebral canal, this strong ligament spans from the body of the Axis (C2) to the posterior surface of the sacrum. The Figure 4c is THAT C6-7 segment shows discontinuous interruption of longitudinal ligament, ALL thickening, and the Figure 4d shows ligament rupture during operation. The posterior longitudinal ligament (PLL) is a long and important ligament located immediately posterior to the vertebral bodies (to which it attaches loosely) and intervertebral discs (to which it is firmly attached). It traverses all of the vertebral bodies and intervertebral discs . •Both posterior longitudinal ligament and ligamentum flava lie with neural arch. Methods. The ligament extends from the pelvic surface of the sacrum to the anterior tubercle of vertebra C1 ( atlas ) and the occipital bone anterior to the foramen magnum . The anterior longitudinal ligament is a ligament that runs down the anterior surface of the spine.It traverses all of the vertebral bodies and intervertebral discs.Median sagittal section of two lumbar vertebræ and their We report difficulty in tracheal intubation during anesthesia induction in two OALL patients. The anterior longitudinal ligament release using the minimally invasive lateral approach allows for deformity correction without the morbidity and blood loss encountered by traditional open posterior approaches. Anterior selective stabilization combined with laminoplasty for cervical myelopathy due to massive ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament: report of early outcomes in 14 patients Yukitaka Nagamoto MD, PhD , Motoki Iwasaki MD, PhD , Shinya Okuda MD, PhD , Tomiya Matsumoto MD, PhD , Tsuyoshi Sugiura MD, PhD , Yoshifumi Takahashi MD and Masayuki Furuya MD, PhD Anterior Longitudinal Ligament in Diffuse Idiopathic Skeletal Hyperostosis: Ossified or Displaced? The study aims to evaluate anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) in the treatment of patients with ossification of the anterior longitudinal ligament (OALL). Like its anterior counterpart, the Anterior longitudinal ligament, its deep fibres are intersegmental while the more superficial fibres can span up to four vertebral levels. Anterior decompression with fusion versus posterior decompression with fusion for massive cervical ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament with a ≥50% canal Anterior longitudinal ligament Prevents hyperextension of the spine; runs continuously along the anterior vertebral bodies from the base of the skull to the anterior sacrum, connecting both on the anterior aspect of the vertebral body and the intervertebral disk Epub 2017 Feb 14. : An analysis of factors causing of or relating to lines of longitude; "longitudinal reckoning by the navigator" over an extended time; "a longitudinal study of twins" of or near the head end or toward the front plane of a body OALL may cause dysphagia, dyspnea, dysphonia, and acute airway obstruction. Protection against this movement is anterior longitudinal ligament (ALL) at the anterior aspect of the foramen [5]. The anterior longitudinal ligament: This ligament is a strong, broad fibrous band that covers and connects the anterolateral aspects of the vertebral bodies and IV discs. Aortic pulsation prevents the development of ossification of anterior longitudinal ligament toward the aorta in patients with diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) in Japanese: Results of chest CT-based cross-sectional study Cerebrospinal Fluid Leakage during Anterior Approach Cervical Spine Surgery for Severe Ossification of the Posterior Longitudinal Ligament: Prevention and Treatment Tao Lei MD Department of Spinal Surgery, The Third Hospital of Hebei Medical University, Shijiazhuang, Hebei, China Herniation of the cervical disk material results in interruption of the posterior longitudinal ligament (PLL) in the majority of patients. • Ligamentum nuchae that contains elastic fibers is found in cervical area only.
