intervertebral disk
the pad of fibrocartilage between the bodies of adjoining vertebrae made up of a pulpy center surrounded by a series of concentric fibrous rings. It is subject to degeneration, extrusion, protrusion and herniation resulting in the development of intervertebral disk disease (see below) known in humans as slipped disk.
intervertebral disk disease
the syndrome of pain and neurological deficits, sometimes complete paralysis, resulting from displacement of part or all of the nucleus of an intervertebral disk. Seen most often in dogs, particularly those of chondrodystrophoid breeds such as Dachshund, Basset hound and Beagle. The most frequently involved disks are in the thoracolumbar region from T11 to L2, but those in the cervical and lumber spine are also commonly affected. See also hansen's classification.
intervertebral disk space
the space between vertebrae occupied by an intervertebral disk as seen on radiographs.
intervertebral foramen
