Study Design. A retrospective study. Objective. This retrospective study assessed whether short same-segment fixation (SSSF) is better than short-segment posterior fixation (SSPF) for reducing thoracolumbar fractures, improving the kyphosis angle, maintaining vertebral height, or reducing the incidence of broken screws. Summary of Background Data. In clinical practice, single-segment thoracolumbar fractures were then more likely to be treated with SSPF that included pedicle fixation at the level of the fracture (short same-segment fixation, or SSSF). Whether SSSF could really achieve vertebral height recovery, impr...

Conclusion. Increased offset of the gravity axis of the head represented by C2-C7 SVA was observed in INEM DHS. Magnified offset of the gravity axis of the head was affected by enlarged C2S, T1S, and T1-T4 TK for the strong correlation with C2-C7 SVA, respectively. Cervical kyphosis was considered as some of the anthropometric characteristics due to regressive changes in affected individuals; a correlation between C2-C7 A and C2-C7 SVA was exhibited. Level of Evidence: 4

Study Design. Retrospective analysis. Objective. To define thoracic compensation and investigate its association with postoperative reciprocal thoracic kyphosis and proximal junctional kyphosis (PJK) Summary of Background Data. Adult spinal deformity (ASD) patients recruit compensatory mechanisms like pelvic retroversion and knee flexion. However, thoracic hypokyphosis is a less recognized compensatory mechanism. Methods. Patients enrolled in a multicenter ASD registry undergoing fusions to the pelvis with upper instrumented vertebra (UIV) between T9 and L1 were included. Patients were divided into those with po...

Study Design. Prospective, cohort study. Objective. Demonstrate validity of Patient reported outcomes measurement information system (PROMIS) physical function, pain interference, and pain behavior computer adaptive tests (CATs) in surgically treated lumbar stenosis patients. Summary of Background Data. There has been increasing attention given to patient reported outcomes associated with spinal interventions. Historical patient outcome measures have inadequate validation, demonstrate floor/ceiling effects, and infrequently used due to time constraints. PROMIS is an adaptive, responsive National Institutes of Healt...
