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 in , Sharon May-Davis presented a discussion on; “An Observation in Thoroughbred Horses of a Congenital Malformation in C6 and C7.”.

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.

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 .
