A Retrospective Review of Radiographic and Clinical Findings from the M6 Cervical Prosthesis.

Conclusions: The M6 new-generation cervical disk prosthesis had few complications. No heterotopic ossiication was observed in any patient, and lexion-extension ROM was maintained in all the patients, indicating the M6 prosthesis as a promising alternative.

Conclusion. When the benefits of one approach over the other are not self-evident, the anterior approach is recommended, as it was associated with a shorter hospital stay and more successful restoration of cervical lordosis than posterior surgery. Level of Evidence: 3

Conclusion Trochlear pain (trochleodynia) is becoming recognized as a set of disorders that can present in isolation or concomitantly with co-existing migraines, tension-type headaches, or other headache disorders, possibly explaining subpar symptom control in a small but significant number of individuals globally. Trochleodynia features unilateral periocular pain that may involve the ipsilateral hemicranium. Pain exacerbation occurs with trochlear palpation and supraduction of the affected eye especially in the adducted position. Trochleodynia may respond to oral NSAIDs if symptoms are mild and of recent onset. While ora...

Conclusions: Closed reduction and casting is still a reliable treatment option in selected thoracolumbar fractures without spinal cord involvement. A correct fracture evaluation, patient compliance, and motivation are essentials. Level of evidence: IV.

Authors: Özkan Y, Akalin Y, Çevik N, Cansabuncu G, Öztürk A Abstract The aim is to show the efficacy of 1,2-intercompartmental supraretinacular artery pedicled vascularised bone graft in treatment of scaphoid non-union with concomitant proximal end avascular necrosis retrospectively. Twentytwo cases of scaphoid nonunion with concomitant proximal end avascular necrosis were evaluated. Radiographic evaluation was made with radiographs, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging. Clinical evaluation was made according to the Disabilities of the Arm, Shoulder and Hand (DASH) score, the Ma...

J Neurol Surg A Cent Eur Neurosurg DOI: 10.1055/s-0038-1655760 Background Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) and low-grade degenerative spondylolisthesis are frequently associated with facet joint degeneration, considered the main cause of low back pain. Surgery is the treatment of choice in patients affected by LSS unresponsive to conservative treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical and radiologic outcome of patients treated with posterior decompression and transfacet fixation for single-level LSS and facet joint degeneration. Methods A total of 25 patients between May 2015 and June 2016 af...

ConclusionsThe technique described is a safe and novel right infraaxillary thoracotomy approach to provide direct access from vertebral bodies T2 –T6 and to provide adequate room for upper thoracic vertebral decompression and fusion surgery. However, a suitable fixation implant should be designed.Graphical abstractThese slides can be retrieved under Electronic Supplementary Material.

Study Design: A retrospective study. Objective: To determine the clinical and radiologic outcomes of the long-term results of instrumented minimally invasive spinal-transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MIS-TLIF) in unstable, single-level, low-grade, isthmic spondylolisthesis (IS) or degenerative spondylosis (DS) including degenerative spondylolisthesis, foraminal stenosis with central stenosis, degenerative disk disease, and recurrent disk herniation. Summary of Background Data: MIS-TLIF is a common surgical procedure to treat lumbar spondylolisthesis. However, there are no studies that have documented the long-...

Conclusions: The UR policy had discernable effects on health care utilization, costs, and disability. Integrating evidence-based guidelines with UR can improve quality of care and patient outcomes, while reducing use of low-value health services.

Conclusions: The targeted translaminar approach preserves structures important for segmental spinal stability thus causing minimal anatomical disruption. This approach allows access to the extruded disc fragment and intervertebral disc space comparable to classical approaches.
