Preoperative Diagnosis:
CERVICAL SPONDYLOTIC MYELOPATHY.

Procedure:
C3 TO C7 LAMINECTOMY AND POSTEROLATERAL INSTRUMENTED FUSION, USE OF ALLOGRAFT, AND AUTOGRAFT.

The patient is a 55-year-old female presenting with subacute and chronic left-sided weakness, arms greater than legs. She reports clumsiness at home leading to multiple falls, subsequently leading to weakness. MRI of the cervical spine revealed cervical spondylosis with severe spinal cord stenosis and some intrinsic _____ signal change. There was also incidentally found _____ heterogeneously enhancing mass. Given the patients symptoms included both arms and legs and the arms were worse than the legs, we believed that the patient was symptomatic on the cervical stenosis and spondylosis.

INDICATIONS: This is a 58-year-old male who presented to an outside hospital with three days of epigastric pain and a history of weeks to months of intermittent vomiting of unknown etiology. On presentation to the outside hospital, the patient was diaphoretic and tachycardic. An NG tube was placed. He received a CT scan which showed the NG tube travelling distally into the esophagus, but penetrating the wall into the esophagus and terminating through the pneumoperitoneum, never making it to the stomach. The patient was promptly transferred to our Hospital where a CT surgery and general surgery were consulted and the decision was made to bring the patient to the operating room emergently for an EGD and exploratory laparotomy with possible esophagectomy. Risks, benefits, and alternatives to the procedure were discussed with the patient who at this time was intubated, minimally sedated, and on a small amount of pressors and were also discussed with his sister.
