Slippage reduction of lumbar spondylolisthesis using percutaneous pedicle screw with reduction fixation system after interbody fusion: A comparison with traditional open fusion and pedicle screw fixation
This study included 65 patients with lumbar spondylolisthesis, who underwent either open transpedicular screw fixation (OTPSF) with posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) (OTPSF group, n = 33) or PPSF with reduction system (PPSFr group, n = 32) after PLIF. The slippage degree (SD); the intervertebral disc height (IDH); lumbar lordosis (LL); and segmental angle (SA) were measured on the follow-up simple lateral radiographs. For pain and functional assessment in patients, visual analogue scale (VAS) scores for low back pain and leg pain, and Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) scores were measured. SA (P
CONCLUSION: In patients with cardiogenic shock after delivery, early transthoracic echocardiography is a non-invasive tool that can rapidly narrow the differential diagnosis. PMID: 31324480 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Publication date: Available online 20 July 2019Source: Advances in Life Course ResearchAuthor(s): Scott D. Landes, Richard A. SetterstenAbstractThe notion that people make choices and take actions that determine the outcomes of their lives – human agency – is a central principle of the life course paradigm. Unfortunately, conceptualizations of agency, like larger developmental and sociological theories, often assume that agency is limited to individuals who are “developmentally normal.” We draw upon the thought of social scientists and disability scholars, as well as the life history of a woman with...
CONCLUSION: Pelvic tilt was the major compensating factor in both groups (patients with and without degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis). Sacral slope and lumbar lordosis contributed to partial compensation in the degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis group. Lumbar lordosis correlated with body mass index. Sacral slope could be an indicator of fall risk in the non-degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis group. PMID: 30307025 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
ConclusionLBP and lumbar degeneration are common in PD. Both are related to movement disorder symptoms. The knowledge about musculoskeletal conditions in Parkinson ’s disease is important for an interdisciplinary conservative or operative treatment decision of LBP.Graphical abstractThese slides can be retrieved under Electronic Supplementary Material.
This study evaluates the use of a crescent-shaped articulating expandable cage (Altera) for MIS TLIF. METHODS This is a retrospective review of 1- and 2-level MIS TLIF. Radiographic outcomes included differences in segmental and lumbar lordosis, disc height, evidence of fusion, and any endplate violations. Clinical outcomes included the numeric rating scale for leg and back pain and the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) for low-back pain. RESULTS Thirty-nine patients underwent single-level MIS TLIF, and 5 underwent 2-level MIS TLIF. The mean age was 63.1 years, with 64% women. On average, spondylolisthesis was corrected by 4...
Complete anatomic reduction and monosegmental fusion for lumbar spondylolisthesis of Grade II and higher: use of the minimally invasive "rocking" technique. Neurosurg Focus. 2017 Aug;43(2):E12 Authors: Rajakumar DV, Hari A, Krishna M, Sharma A, Reddy M Abstract OBJECTIVE Different surgical approaches have been described for treatment of spondylolisthesis, including in situ fusions, reductions of various degrees, and inclusion of healthy adjacent segments into the fusion construct. To the authors' knowledge, there are only sparse reports describing consistent complete reduction and monosegmen...
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.
Conclusions: Patients with smaller PI tended to be restored higher, and those patients with a larger PI were more likely to be restored lower. For patients with normal sagittal balance, the surgical outcomes in the treatment of low-grade lumbar degenerative spondylolisthesis with spinal fusion are not correlated with restoration of the LL.
Conclusion Unilateral instrumented TLIF is a safe and effective treatment option for single-level lumbar degenerative disease, and is less invasive, yields good outcomes and has a low complication rate. In addition, the procedure has the potential to partly restore sagittal alignment.
Conclusions: Lever slip reduction maneuver techniques using polyaxial screw and rod fixation system was simple and practicable. The treatment outcomes showed satisfactory radiographic characteristics and clinical results. The length of the incision was relatively small with a low intraoperative blood loss and short operation time.
