Abstract BACKGROUND: Intraspinal lumbar vertebral joint cysts are an unusual cause of nerve root compression symptoms and do not differ clinically from the symptoms of a herniated disc. PATHOGENESIS: The cysts originate from the small vertebral joints and, depending on their size, compress the nerval structures. The affected vertebral joints typically show activated arthritic circumstances, which are associated with degenerative spondylolisthesis in about 50% of cases. In the majority of cases, MRT and CT can be used for diagnostic purposes. The exact etiology has not been fully clarified; various factor...

Conclusions: Patients with multilevel spinal stenosis and degenerative spondylolisthesis may require decompressive lumbar laminectomies alone or in combination with noninstrumented or instrumented fusions. PMID: 29119044 [PubMed]
ConclusionA RA patient with double-level isthmic spondylolisthesis showed a progressive destructive lesion. In addition to clinical presentations, the imaging findings were very similar to ones of spinal neuroarthropathy. The authors conclude that this Grand Round case probably had SNA secondary to RA and that this, combined with two-level isthmic spondylolisthesis, resulted in her rapidly progressing destructive lumbar lesion.
Low back pain, the scourge of mankind: it is the second leading cause of disability here in the United States, and the fourth worldwide. It’s also one of the top five medical problems for which people see doctors. Almost every day that I see patients, I see someone with back pain. It’s one of the top reasons for lost wages due to missed work, as well as for healthcare dollars spent, hence, a very expensive problem. Looking at two kinds of back pain Let’s talk about the most common forms of back pain: acute (which lasts less than four weeks) and subacute (which lasts four to 12 weeks). Most of these cases ...
ConclusionsPatients with concomitant unilateral HOA and LBP showed a marked anteverted FNA in the arthritic hip and a spinopelvic misalignment. After THR, a relief of both hip and low back pain and a change in spinopelvic parameters is observed.
Conclusion. The results of this study provide important data regarding differences in facet angle that exists between individuals. Moreover, the results of this study suggest that facet joints do possess the ability to remodel over time, perhaps in response to perturbations of sagittal balance, osteophyte formation, or other yet to be determined factors. Level of Evidence: N/A
Spondylolysis, Spondylolisthesis, Spondylitis &Spondylosis These four conditions affect the lumbar spine and may be confusing. What is the difference between spondylolysis, spondylolisthesis, spondylitis, and spondylosis? Spondylolysis (pars interarticularis Defect) - Used to describe the anatomic defect or break of the pars interarticularis of the vertebral arch. Spondylolysis usually occurs in the lower lumbar spine, especially the L5 vertebrae. It usually appears as a radiolucent gap on lateral X-ray. It occurs in about 5% of the population; it is not present at birth but develops over time and may run in fami...
