The correlation analysis between sagittal alignment and cross-sectional area of paraspinal muscle in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and degenerative spondylolisthesis

The relationship between spinal alignment and skeletal muscle mass (SMM) has attracted attention in recent years. Sagittal alignment is known to deteriorate with age, but it is not known whether this is relate...

Thomas et al. (October issue) found equivalent outcomes for patients treated with decompression plus fusion versus decompression alone for claudication secondary to lumbar spinal stenosis [1]. This is a national spine registry study where they excluded patients with deformity or spondylolisthesis, which had been a major contention with previous similar studies [1-5].

ConclusionMI-TLIF has equivalent efficacy to O-TLIF in obese patients at long-term follow-up. In addition, complication rate, blood loss, and length of hospital stay were lower in MI-TLIF than in O-TLIF.

Conclusion: F group has no better clinical results than D alone in LSS, regardless of DS and follow-up. The conclusion is of “High” quality and the grade strength of recommendation was “Strong.”

Conclusion. For patients with stable DS and LSS, ULBD is a viable, durable option compared to fusion with decreased blood loss and length stay, as well as a lower reoperation rate at 5-year follow-up. Further prospective studies are required to determine the optimal clinical scenario for ULBD in the setting of DS. Level of Evidence: 3

CONCLUSIONS: The results of this 11-year follow-up study demonstrate that, in patients with spinal stenosis and degenerative spondylolisthesis, decompression and posterior arthroplasty maintain clinical improvement and radiological stability. PMID: 31585417 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

J Neurol Surg A Cent Eur Neurosurg DOI: 10.1055/s-0039-1688559 Study Design Retrospective study of prospectively collected outcome data. Background No studies have evaluated the long-term outcomes following microendoscopic diskectomy for lumbar disk herniation (MEDH) and microendoscopic decompression for lumbar spinal stenosis (MEDS) using the Japanese Orthopaedic Association Back Pain Evaluation Questionnaire (JOABPEQ). Objective To assess the minimum 10-year outcomes following MEDH and MEDS. Patients and Methods Seventy-six patients were classified into three groups: disk herniation (DH) g...

AbstractObjectiveTo quantify the correlation between patients ’ psychopathological predisposition, disability and health-related quality of life (QOL) after surgery for degenerative lumbar spine disease.MethodsWe prospectively included patients undergoing decompression for degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis or disc herniation with additional fusion of up to two segments. Patients completed a structured psychological assessment including the Center for Epidemiological Studies Depression Scale (ADS-K), Post-Traumatic Stress Scale –10 (PTSS-10), State Trait Anxiety Inventory–State Anxiety...

The Spine Patient-Reported Outcomes Related Trial (SPORT) is arguably one of the most impactful and insightful studies conducted in spine surgery. Designed as a prospective, multicenter study with randomized and observational cohorts, SPORT has provided vast data on the pathogenesis, treatment effects, clinical outcomes, cost effectiveness of disk herniation, lumbar spinal stenosis, and degenerative spondylolisthesis. With regards to spinal stenosis and degenerative spondylolisthesis, SPORT has demonstrated a sustained benefit from surgical intervention at 2, 4, and 8 years postoperatively. Myriad subgroup analyses have su...
