Change of Kunming Locomotor Scale in 1 year [ Time Frame: Day 0, Day 15, Month 1, Month 2, Month 3, Month 4, Month 5, Month 6, and 1 year ]
Kunming Locomotor Scale is a 10-grade Roman numeral locomotion scoring system. Grade I, the patient can not stand; grade II, the patient was able to stand with weight support and help in fixing the knee; grade III, the patient was able to stand with weight support; grade IV, the patient was able to walk with wheeled weight support and help in fixing the knee of the weight bearing leg; grade V, the patient was able to walk with wheeled weight support; grade VI, the patient was able to walk with the help of a light four-leg support; grade VII, the patient was able to walk with a pair of crutches; grade VIII, the patient was able to walk with a cane; grade IX, the patient was able to walk without support but staggeringly; and grade X, the patient was able to walk stably without support.

  • Change of Walking Index for Spinal Cord Injury in 1 year [ Time Frame: Day 0, Day 15, Month 1, Month 2, Month 3, Month 4, Month 5, Month 6, and 1 year ]
    The Walking Index for Spinal Cord Injury evaluates the amount of physical assistance, braces or devices required to walk at 10 meters.
  • Change of Spinal Cord Independence Measure in 1 year [ Time Frame: Day 0, Day 15, Month 1, Month 2, Month 3, Month 4, Month 5, Month 6, and 1 year ]
    The Spinal Cord Independence Measure assesses patients' self-care, respiration and sphincter management, and mobility abilities with a total score of zero to 100.
  • Change of American Spinal Injury Association Impairment Scale in 1 year [ Time Frame: Day 0, Day 15, Month 1, Month 2, Month 3, Month 4, Month 5, Month 6, and 1 year ]
    American Spinal Injury Association Impairment Scale as international standards for neurological classification of spinal cord injury, is a 5 point ordinal scale to identify patient's sensory and motor levels, from A (complete SCI) to E (normal sensory and motor function).
  • Change of Modified Ashworth Scale in 1 year [ Time Frame: Day 0, Day 15, Month 1, Month 2, Month 3, Month 4, Month 5, Month 6, and 1 year ]
    Modified Ashworth Scale is considered the primary clinical measure of muscle spasticity in patients with neurological conditions, with Grade of 0, 1, 1+, 2, 3 and 4 (from no increase in muscle tone to affected parts rigid in flexion or extension).
  • Change of Numerical Rating Scale in 1 year [ Time Frame: Day 0, Day 15, Month 1, Month 2, Month 3, Month 4, Month 5, Month 6, and 1 year ]
    The Numerical Rating Scale is to assess pain intensity in patients who are able to self report ranging from 0 (no pain) to 10(unbearable pain).

Treatment for Chronic Spinal Cord Injury: Surgery With Rehabilitation vs Rehabilitation
Surgical Decompression/Untethering Combined With Weight Bearing Rehabilitation in Chronic Spinal Cord Injury Subjects
The purpose of this study is to investigate the efficacy of surgical decompression/untethering, combined with weight bearing rehabilitation, on neurological recovery following chronic spinal cord injury.

Safety Issues:

Safety issues need to be watched are: occurrence of known and unknown undesirable incidences, moving up injury levels, loss of previously preserved neurological functions, vital physical signs, and worsening of EKG and lab results. If unforeseen issues occur, patients will be consulted to determine whether treatments will be continued.

Adverse events:

Adverse events may occur during the trail and these events will be recorded. The severity of the events and their relationship to the experimental therapy will be determined, documented and reported to the Data Monitoring and Safety Committee who will determine how these events will be handled if they occur.

Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Procedure: Surgery
    Surgery treatment of the injured vertebra(e), internal fixation of the vertebral column, and bilateral laminectomy for epidural decompression were followed directly by neurosurgical management, including separation of the arachnoid adhesion to restore cerebrospinal fluid flow and debridement of the spinal cord necrotic tissue with concomitant intramedullary decompression.
  • Procedure: Rehabilitation
    The patients need to do intensive rehabilitation everyday. (1)The limb comprehensive training is Kunming Locomotor exercise, 60 minutes twice per day.(2)The exercise therapy includes sit-ups by 30 times, twice per day; half bridge exercise by 10 times, twice per day; backward flight movement by 10 times, twice per day; sling exercise training by 30 minutes, twice per day; and postural transfer functional training by 10 minutes, twice per day. (3)The balance training include ball toss training by 10 minutes, twice per day; and balance board training by 10 minutes, twice per day. (4)The wheelchair training will be taken 20 minutes each, twice per day. (5)The isokinetic training needs to perform 20 minutes each, twice per day.
  • Experimental: Surgery with Rehabilitation
    Surgically removed cysts, and collected intracystic fluids and cerebrospinal fluid for histological and molecular analyses. Samples will be collected during the surgery and will be cryo-protected for further analyses. All subjects will enroll for intensive rehabilitation 60 days after surgery.
    Interventions:
    • Procedure: Surgery
    • Procedure: Rehabilitation
  • Active Comparator: Rehabilitation
    All subjects will enroll for intensive rehabilitation everyday as instruction.
    Intervention: Procedure: Rehabilitation

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Male or female adult subjects, 18-60 years of age
