The anomaly of Kimerli is a pathological change in the structure of the cervical vertebra.
The disease consists in the presence of an additional bone arch, which significantly limits the movement of the vertebral artery and thereby causes the squeezing syndrome.
Because of this, patients have a large number of unpleasant symptoms.
The anomaly of Kimerli is characterized by the presence of frequentDizziness and constant noise in the ears. Patients have abnormalities in the gait and coordination problems, frequent dots and regular darkening in the eyes. In some cases, a loss of consciousness occurs, memory disorders are observed and sudden muscle weakness sets in. On the background of these symptoms there are emotional and motor disorders, the risk of ischemic stroke increases. Diagnosis of the disease is made by radiography of this department of the spine. Sometimes magnetic resonance angiography and duplex scanning are used.
Kimerli's anomaly is treated withSpecific symptoms and clinical signs of the disease. Patients undergoing therapy should follow certain precautions to avoid worsening of symptoms. So, patients are advised to avoid heavy physical exertion, sharp head turns, somersaults and sports games that are associated with head bumps or active torso movements.
To ease the symptoms, patients are prescribed manual therapy and massage of the cervical spine.
In the process of treatment,Conservative therapy, which is performed when there are signs of vascular insufficiency. Appointed drugs that are aimed at improving blood flow ("Sermion", "Devinkan", "Cavinton"). During the treatment, the patient is regularly assigned coagulograms to monitor blood coagulability and avoid the appearance of blood clots. Also, drugs are prescribed that improve the reagent properties of the blood (Pentoxifylline, Trental). Antioxidants, neuroprotectors, nootropics (for improving brain function) and metabolic drugs (for example, Piracetam, Pikamilon, etc.) are widely used in therapy.
After the removal of the vertebra, a Shanza collar is prescribed for up to 1 month for faster recovery.
Surgical intervention is extremelyRarely and only if the desired effect is not achieved with conservative therapy, and the patient's health is seriously threatened. As a rule, the removal of the abnormal arch is used when there is a decompensated vertebral artery syndrome, which causes insufficient circulation and leads to a lack of collateral blood supply to the brain.
