Patient discussion about fusional

Q. Has anyone had a spine fusion that failed? Or hardware that failed?

A. Haven't experienced it myself, but here (http://www.spine-health.com/forum/treatments/back-surgery-and-neck-surgery) you may find a discussion about it.

Q. I'm having a lot of pain in my right leg after back fusion surgery. Any ideas why? This was my third back surgery. The doctor fused 2 levels. Before surgery I was having pain in my left leg. It is now fine. My right leg however is giving me fits. I've been on Neurontin (Gabopentin is the generic) for 4 weeks now and have very little relief.

A. Thank you Brandon for your input. I have talked with my surgeon on several occasions and he is as baffled by this as I am. His next course of action will be a myleogram. His is reluctant to do this because of the pain and discomfort involved. This is the most baffling thing I have ever experienced, especially when my very talented surgeon is puzzled by it. I do appreciate your input, and will discuss this with my doctor...Perhaps it is a blood flow problem. I have been walking and wear compression hose, with no relief unfortunately.

Fusional vergence ranges are traditionally determined by manipulating retinal disparity with occlusion and prisms [8-11].
A possible explanation of this myopic shift during the control of the deviation at near is the stimulation of accommodation elicited by fusional convergence excessively stressed in the effort of overlap with the exodeviation [6, 8].
Ocular statuses, including accommodative response, accommodative microfluctuation, accommodative facility, positive and negative relative accommodation, gradient accommodative convergence/accommodation (AC/A), distant and near phoria, and positive and negative fusional vergence, were measured.
The purpose of Fusion 1 is comparing the fusion feature with DBN21 to features without DBN, so that the cross-corpus recognition performance of fusional traditional features could be revealed.
Fusional vergence was measured using a horizontal prism bar and vergence facility was assessed with a 12BO/3BI flipper.
We may conclude that, especially in fusional languages, morphology plays a major role in individuating words, much more than in isolating languages where the syntactic position of a word establishes its function.
