Journal of Pediatric Urology. Shepard CL, et al. Surgical treatment of tethered spinal cord syndrome in a dog with myelomeningocele. Magnetic resonance imaging has been described as disrsfia preferred imaging modality for assessment of spinal dysraphism, meningoceles, myelomeningoceles in small animals Da Costa Magnetic resonance imaging should be reserved for patients with positive or inconclusive results from ultrasonography, for confirmation of the diagnosis and surgical planning, as reported in the present case, in which the ultrasonographic findings were fully confirmed by the magnetic resonance imaging.

Fetal spina bifida surgery. Cases of multiple stigmas comprise another group at risk [7].

Pregnancy among mothers with spina bifida. Spinal cord duplications are often associated with vertebral anomalies such as spina bifida, as seen in this case. In order to obtain additional information to elucidate the diagnosis, magnetic resonance imaging was performed on the spine. Blackwell Publishing, Oxford, UK.

These spinal cord lesions most likely occurred during primary neurulation and are uncommon in domestic animals. Spina Bifida Fact Sheet. Absence of vertebral arch, abnormal triangular shape of the spinal cord and mild meningocoele white arrow at cranial L6 vertebral segment C: Clinical signs in dspinal case were consistent espina, a lumbosacral L3-Cd4 spinal cord lesion.


Radiography revealed absence of the lamina and spinous process of the 6 th lumbar vertebra.

Espina bífida – Síntomas y causas – Mayo Clinic

This case was different from our protocol because the neonate was referenced to realize the transfontanellar ultrasound, and only after the observation of cutaneous stigma, the protocol of occult spinal dysrapism was performed. Transfontanellar ultrasonography did not show any abnormalities.

Mayo Clinic Health Letter. Sweeps in longitudinal and transverse planes were performed, with the aims of making a detailed assessment of the contiguity of the anatomical features with themedullary canal: Alpha-fetoprotein AFPsingle marker screen, maternal, serum. Ocuota tomographic myelography can also detect variations in the shape, size and split defects of spinal cord espibal in this case it was helpful in determining the location and extent of the spinal dysraphism, the spinal cord malformation type II and spinal cord hypoplasia.

Folic acid to reduce neonatal mortality from neural tube disorders. Images in B and color Doppler modes were obtained. Y estas afecciones pueden tratarse.

In Weimaraners spinal dysraphism is transmitted by a co-dominant lethal gene with a reduced penetrance and variable expressivity SheltonDe Lahunta and Glass Agendamento de exames 11 The neonate underwent corrective surgery and, over a six-month followup, presented normal neuropsychomotor development. Some stigmas have been proven to present greater risk of occult spinal dysraphism, such as deep or atypical sacrococcygeal dimples, espinxl, cutaneous aplasia, subcutaneous masses, and exophytic skin lesions such as tails and hair tufts.

Ultrasonography is a fast, safe, noninvasive, and low-cost method, and it also presents good correspondence with the findings from magnetic resonance imaging. It may be suspected in asymptomatic ocukta because it is generally associated with abnormalities of the adjacent skin, such as cutaneous stigmas, hemangiomas, hair tufts, cutaneous appendices, sacrococcygeal dimples, and subcutaneous masses, particularly in oculha lumbosacral region [4].


A five-day-old white dizrafia neonate was sent to our service for transfontanellar ultrasonography to be performed, ocultq of the presence of cutaneous stigmas in the lumbar region. Diagnostic imaging test included radiography, ultrasonography and computed tomographic myelography Myelo-CT. This produced the following findings: A neurological examination done earlier had not shown any abnormalities. Textbook of veterinary radiology. Hallazgos de mielo-TAC de un disrafismo espinal en un perro mestizo de dos meses de edad.

It is therefore more difficult to diagnose on antenatal ultrasonography. Open neural tube defects: However, the sonographic evaluation on this case was unable to provide additional information about the spinal cord anomaly probably due to advance stage of vertebral ossification in the dog. Pathological changes may also ocylta spinal cord lesions such as myeloschisis spinal cord cleftamyelia, diastematomyelia split cord malformation type Idiplomyelia split cord malformation type IIabsent or disrafix dorsal and ventral horns, hydromyelia and syringomyelia Andro et al In three prospective studies in the literature, the highest incidence reported, in an evaluated population of 2, patients, was 7.
