Altered postural timing and abnormally low use of proprioception in lumbar spinal stenosis pre- and post- surgical decompression

Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is frequently associated with postural instability. Although several studies evaluated patients ’ functional impairments, underlying sensorimotor mechanisms are still poorly underst...

This study involved 102 patients who underwent indirect decompression at 136 levels, with LLIF and posterior fixation. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRIs) were collected preoperatively and several times postoperatively (over a 2-year period starting immediately after surgery). We then quantified the cross-sectional areas of the thecal sac and ligamentum flavum, as well as the anteroposterior diameter of disc bulging, and qualitatively assessed lumbar spinal stenosis according to a modified version of Schizas’ classification [Grades A (mild) to C (severe)]. The Japanese Orthopaedic Association Back Pain Evaluation Quest...

Today's paper is authored by the Covalent Bioscience science team, and is an overview of the science underlying their catalytic antibody (or catabody) approach to clearing amyloids of various sorts from aged tissues. It isn't open access, unfortunately, but the paper is, as usual, available to the world thanks to the ethical civil disobedience of the Sci-Hub team. Amyloids are solid deposits formed by one of the very small number of proteins in the body that can become misfolded or otherwise altered in ways that cause other molecules of the same protein to also alter in the same way. These errant proteins aggregate into st...

Conclusion: This case highlights the atypical MR features of lumbar Baastrup's disease in conjunction with stenosis. Atypical Baastrup's disease should be differentiated from classical Baastrup's disease or other infectious pathologies (e.g., Pott's disease of the spine) and appropriately treated with timely spinal decompression.

CONCLUSIONS: Although MRI is crucial for evaluating lumbar spinal stenosis, it cannot replace but is rather complementary to a good patient history and clinical examination or the results of local diagnostic injections. PMID: 31743983 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 16 November 2019Source: Artificial Intelligence in MedicineAuthor(s): Yu Sun, Li Wang, Zhongliang Jiang, Bing Li, Ying Hu, Wei TianAbstractThe decompressive laminectomy is a common operation for treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis. The tools for grinding and drilling are used for fenestration and internal fixation, respectively. The state recognition is one of the main technologies in robot-assisted surgery, especially in tele-surgery, because surgeons have limited perception during remote-controlled robot-assisted surgery. The novelty of this paper is that a state recognition system is p...

This study examines national trends in the surgical management of lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) in patients with and without coexisting scoliosis between 2010 and 2014. The study also examines revision rates for LSS procedures. Summary of Background Data. There is wide variability in the surgical management of patients with LSS, with and without coexisting spinal deformity. Methods. Data were obtained from the Healthcare Cost and Utilization Project's National Inpatient Sample Database. International Classification of Diseases 9th revision- Clinical Modification codes were used to identify all patients with a primary ...
