Surgical Decompression Research Paper

Satisfactory Essays
Surgical decompression potentially relieves many symptoms caused by pressure and compression of the spinal cord [120]. The timing of early decompression remains controversial as it is defined differently in animals and human [120]. Fehling et al. suggested that performing an early decompression (6-8 h) in animals enhanced neurological recovery [121]. Notwithstanding, sub-acute surgical decompressions in human patients (24-72 h) have failed to produce satisfactory results due to irreversible tissue damage experienced [30,122].
