Cervical vertebral stenotic myelopathy (CVSM) is a common cause of ataxia in horses and other animals. CVSM is characterized by ataxia and weakness, caused by narrowing of the cervical vertebral canal and compression of the spinal cord often in combination with malalignment and malformation of the cervical by: vertebrae will often reveal some malformations/ malarticulation the cervical vertebrae leading to the clinical signs of ataxia and paresis.

Several lateral radiographs are taken in order to image the entire length of the cervical spine. Five characteristic bony malformations of cervical vertebrae may be seen in horses with CVSM. 1: Flare of the caudal vertebral body growth plateFile Size: KB.

It is seen in younger horses as a malformation of adjacent neck vertebrae that causes compression of the spinal cord. It causes signs of weakness and wobbliness (ataxia), which is usually worse in the hind limbs.

In older horses, compression is also caused by bone buildup on the inter-vertebral joints as a result of chronic arthritis. “The Congenital Malformation of the 6th and 7th Cervical Vertebrae in Horses” Presenter: Sharon May-Davis At the Bowker Lectures inSharon May-Davis presented a discussion on; “An Observation in Thoroughbred Horses of a Congenital Malformation in C6 and C7.”.

Cervical vertebral arthrosis in horses: An overview 9 had been diagnosed as having equine cervical vertebral malformation (CVM) or “wobbles,” and 3 were normal controls.

For various Author: Anton Fürst. Descriptions of cervical vertebral malformation in the horse appeared as early as 7 Cervical vertebral malformation refers to a malformation or malarticulation of one or more of the seven cervical vertebrae that results in a constant or intermittent impingement of bone and soft tissues or tendons and ligaments on the spinal by: Variations in cervical vertebral numbers (homeotic changes) have been reported in horses as occipito‐atlanto‐axial malformation (OAAM)and also as the presence of rudimentary or malformed ribs which seem to coincide in all cases with shape variations of C6 and C7 Author: S.

Veraa, K. de Graaf, I. Wijnberg, W. Back, W. Back, H. Vernooij, M. Nielen, A.J. Belt. CERVICAL vertebral stenotic myelopathy (CVSM) is a common cause of spinal ataxia and paresis in horses that results from stenosis of the cervical vertebral canal and static or dynamic compression of the spinal cord (Nout and Reed ).The disease is seen commonly in young, rapidly growing by: Equine Caudal Cervical Morphologic Variation (ECCMV) is a congenital malformation of the caudal cervical spine distinct from the more commonly recognized Cervical Vertebral Author: Jonathon Dixon.

the following diagnoses: cervical vertebral malformation, cervical stenotic myelopathy, cervical static stenosis, cervical vertebral instability, ataxia, and wobbler disease. All records recovered from this search were reviewed. Horses needed to satisfy criteria for definition of confirmed or presumptive CVCM to be included in this by:   Reasons for study: Detailed anatomy of the equine cervical articular process joints (APJs) has received little attention in the literature and yet disorders of this joint have been linked to spinal cord compression resulting in severe clinical signs such as ataxia and weakness.

This study aimed to describe the 3D anatomy of the APJ in relation to the spinal cord in the by: The Occurrence of a Congenital Malformation in the Sixth and Seventh Cervical Vertebrae Predominantly Observed in Thoroughbred Horses Author links open overlay panel Sharon May-Davis BAppSc (Equine), MAppScCited by: 6.

The disease is characterized by malformations of one or more cervical vertebrae that lead to stenosis of the spinal canal, spinal cord compression, and damage to spinal cord nerve tracts. Proposed etiologic factors include high planes of nutrition, accelerated growth rates, altered ratios of copper and zinc, and inherited genetic by: Cervical vertebral malformation, a leading cause of ataxia (wobbler syndrome) in horses, is subdivided into two syndromes; cervical vertebral instability and cervical static stenosis.

Cervical vertebral instability most commonly affects horses 8 to 18 months of. Moore B R, Reed S M, Biller D S et al () Assessment of vertebral canal diameter and bony malformations of the cervical part of the spine in horses with cervical stenotic myelopathy.

Am J Vet Res 55 (1), PubMed. Moore B R, Reed S M & Robertson J T () Surgical treatment of cervical stenotic myelopathy in horses, 73 cases (). Type I cervical vertebral malformation resulting in dynamic cord compression in the mid-cervical region is usually associated with ataxia rather than neck pain.

However, Type II cervical vertebral malformation associated with arthritic enlargement of the articular process joints may lead to neck pain and lameness in addition to a degree of. As the longus colli muscle attaches onto the 6 th-7 th cervical vertebrae, relevant asymmetry in this muscle was prospected in horses with reported malformations of the vertebrae in question.

Therefore, the purpose of this study was to establish the relocation patterns of the longus colli muscle in horses exhibiting the reported congenital malformation and where possible, observe horses. Occipitoatlantoaxial Malformation (OAAM): Occipitoatlantoaxial Malformation (OAAM) is a neurologic disorder caused by a malformation of the occipital bone of the skull and the first two cervical vertebrae (the atlas and axis), with fusion of the atlas to the base of the skull.

An unusual variation of this malformation can be the presence of an. In horses over age Cervical vertebral stenotic myelopathy a) Fig 3: Cervical myelogram demonstrating static compression of the cervical spinal cord at C6â C7, where the sagittal ratio is 52%. The dorsal contrast column is 1 mm at C6â C7 and 9 mm measured mid body C7 (89% reduction).

The Occurrence of a Congenital Malformation in the Sixth and Seventh Cervical Vertebrae Predominantly Observed in Thoroughbred Horses, May-Davis, Sharon, Journal of Equine Veterinary Science, Vol Is – There were 11 cases of cervical vertebral malformation, four of equine degenerative myeloencephalopathy, two of equine protozoal myeloencephalitis, one each of vertebral osteomyelitis and intervertebral disc protrusion.

The clinical diagnosis of ataxia in horses requires neurological, radiographic, myelographic, and laboratory by:   Preliminary Radiographic Protocols for Identifying Congenital Malformations of the Caudal Cervical Vertebrae. Authors: May-Davis S.E.R., Minowa F., Monoe S. Abstract. Ina published study based on dissections and skeletal examinations noted that Thoroughbred horses had a congenital malformation of the 6th cervical vertebra (C6).

If your horse is found to have malformation or instability of the cervical vertebrae as an underlying problem, more aggressive treatment might be warranted to help stabilize the spine and minimize damage to the underlying spinal cord. Surgical fusion of the spine with a device known as a Bagby basket can be successful at reducing : Barb Crabbe, DVM.

Wobbler syndrome, or cervical ver-tebral malformation (CVM), is a dev-astating disease that can affect a horse’s neurologic and musculoskeletal systems.

It is a structural narrowing of the spi-nal canal due to a variety of vertebral malformations and leads to spinal cord compression. As a result, horses exhibitFile Size: KB. The horse’s large, mobile cervical vertebrae remain well-protected and fairly resistant to physical insult.

“It actually takes quite a lot of effort to damage the bones in the horse’s neck. Equine Caudal Cervical Morphologic Variation (ECCMV) is a congenital malformation of the caudal cervical spine distinct from the more commonly recognized Cervical Vertebral Stenotic Myelopathy (CVSM).

The most common presentation of ECCMV is recognized on the sixth cervical vertebra (C6). In “normal” presentations, the transverse processes on the left and right sides have a caudal lamina. Background. Cervical vertebral stenotic myelopathy (CVSM), also known as wobbler syndrome or cervical vertebral malformation or malarticulation (CVM) can affect both young and old equine patients [5, 17, 18, 21, 24].The disease is divided into a dynamic (type I) or static (type II) type, depending on the type, location and nature of the lesions as well as the age of the patient [27, 31, 37].Author: Magdalena Szklarz, Anna Lipinska, Malwina Slowikowska, Artur Niedzwiedz, Krzysztof Marycz, Maciej Ja.

VanBiervliet, J, Mayhew, deLahunta, Cervical Vertebral. Wobbles: Cervical stenotic myelopathy, called wobbles, is a malformation of the cervical vertebrae that "pinches" the spinal cord, impairing the horse's ability to coordinate his legs and body. The impingement can be dynamic--if the malformed vertebrae allow too much bend in the neck, putting pressure on the cord--or static, if a buildup of.

Degenerative conditions such as osteoarthritis of the cervical facet joints or rarely, disc disease between the neck vertebrae; and Rarely, tumors within the neck. With neurologic signs related to. From cervical vertebral malformation to sacroiliac pain, a wide range of conditions exist that affect the complex axial skeleton of the horse.

Recent years have brought more awareness of equine spinal problems, both in the general equestrian public and in the veterinary profession. Dorsal view of malformation of cervical spine in Arabian filly with OAAM (arrow indicates region of malformation).

Bordari et al., Occipitoatlantoaxial Malformation (OAAM) Occipitoatlantoaxial malformation (OAAM) is a developmental defect of the base of the skull and first two vertebrae that causes a neurological deficit in horses.

This fusion keeps the vertebrae from compressing the spinal cord. Although it can take a horse up to a year to recover from cervical stabilization, Reed said that many horses are able to live. Sharon May-Davis BAppSc (Equine), MAppSc, has published a study on The Occurrence of a Congenital Malformation in the Sixth and Seventh Cervical Vertebrae Predominantly Obseverd in Thoroughbred Horses.

You can read the abstract here. Equine Complex Vertebral Malformation (also known as C6/C7 Malformation or ECVM). These often progressive clinical signs were due to a progressive and focal compressive myelopathy of the proximal cervical spinal cord. Pedigree analysis demonstrated the familial nature of this occipitoatlantoaxial malformation seen in horses of only the Arabian breed.

Related by: Wobbler disease is a catchall term referring to several possible malformations of the cervical vertebrae that cause an unsteady (wobbly) gait and weakness in dogs and horses.A number of different conditions of the cervical (neck) spinal column cause similar clinical signs.
