Abstract

Clinical and computer-aided comparisons were made in 96 patients with different neurological manifestations of lumbar osteochondrosis. In the majority of cases, definite correlations were established between the intensity of the clinical symptoms and the degree of disc prolapse. The above correlations were not absolute, which was documented by the catamnesis of certain patients who, at different times, developed neurological symptoms, different in character and intensity, of disc prolapse invariability. The data obtained allowed a conclusion that computer-aided tomography of the spine may appear of the greatest value if there is a necessity of making differential diagnosis with oncological pathology and in cases of the assumed surgical treatment of vertebral osteochondrosis to reveal details of degenerative and dystrophic alterations at the appropriate level.
