Cervical Stenosis with Myleopathy – The Complications

Cervical Stenosis is defined as a degeneration of the structures of the spine as a result of aging causes of a slowly progressive condition of the cervical spinal cord. Spinal stenosis cause pressure on the spinal cord, which may lead to the symptoms of myelopathy. Cervical spinal stenosis with myelopathy is a common disease in elderly patients of male gender(2)
C. Complications
1. Numbness and paresis
There was a report of a patient with X-rays of cervical spine showed fusion at two levels: C2 and C3 vertebrae, and C4 and C5 vertebrae and had a similar cervical spinal cord injury about 15 years ago, when he developed transient numbness and paresis of the lower limbs following a fall(5).
2. Incontinence 
In the study of  214 patients undergoing surgery for degenerative spinal disease at our department between January 1 and December 31, 2008, researchers at the Neurochirurgick√© oddelenie JLF UK a MFN, Martin showed that Degenerative spinal disease can result in acute or chronic urinary incontinence. Factors associated with its development include gender, BMI, radicular weakness and the type of degenerative disease. Surgical treatment improved or eliminated the symptoms of urinary incontinence in more than half of the patients affected(6).
4. Paralysis 
Cervical stenosis can cause increased risk of paralysis, depending on where the spinal cord and nerve roots are damaged by Cervical Stenosis.
5. Chronic pelvic pain and infertility
Cervical stenosis condition often recurs despite intervention. women who encounter ecurrent stenosis are at risk of developing severe complications such as chronic pelvic pain and infertility(7).
