I was injured on Dec 8th 2007 in a motocross accident. I suffered a Spinal Cord injury at the T10/T11 vertebrae. My cord was compressed and 50% compromised as stated by my surgeon. My surgery was just to repair my spine and not fix the cord. The surgeon stabilized my spine by fusing me from T-9 through L-3. During my rehab I did not show any spasms and the doctor classified me as having a lower motor neuron lesion (flaccid paralysis). I have looked for clinical trials for my level of injury but NO one is holding trials for anything below a T-10 vertebral break. I have been told that the anatomy of the cord differs greatly below the T-10 level causing cell implantation treatments to be more complex. From my understanding all the trials will be for central nervous system SCI injuries (above T-10) first and then they will try to tackle the multiple complexities of the lower motor neuron lesion. Could you please explain how the anatomy of a lower thoracic break differs from the normal cord (T-10 and above?) and the obstacles scientist have to face in order to provide a cure for a lower motor neuron lesion?
