Purpose: The purpose of this study was to elucidate the relevance among Schmorl's node (SN), chronic low back pain (CLBP), and intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD) with the use of magnetic resonance imaging T2 mapping. Overview of Literature: SN may be combined with CLBP and/or IVDD; however, their relationship has not been determined to date. Methods: A total of 105 subjects were included (48 men and 57 wome...

Authors: Rudy HL, Cho W, Oster BA, Tarpada SP, Moran-Atkin E Abstract Study Design: Retrospective cohort study. Purpose: To determine the effects of massive weight loss on perioperative complications after lumbar fusion surgery (LFS). Overview of Literature: Patients who are obese are more likely to experience low back pain, which would require LFS. Nonetheless, they have a higher risk of perioperative complication development compared with individuals who are not obese. Methods: Patients who underwent LFS at hospitals that participated in the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program database withi...

ConclusionsThis trial found that 6  months of exercise did not benefit the IVD of people with NSCLBP. Based on this index study, future studies could investigate the effect of exercise on IVD in different populations, with different types, durations and/or intensities of exercise, and using different IVD markers.Graphic abstractThese slides can be retrieved under Electronic Supplementary Material.

Authors: Mazza E, Marcia S, Mondaini F, Piras E, Giordan N, Torri T, Barbanti-Bròdano G, Parodi F Abstract OBJECTIVE: In this premarket clinical study, we evaluated the efficacy and safety of a novel Hydrogel (HYADD4-G) for reducing low back pain (LBP) in patients with degenerative disc disease (DDD). PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-three patients with chronic LBP were enrolled. All patients presented with up to three lumbar black discs (Pfirrmann grade III or IV), LBP of at least 40 mm on the Visual Analogue Scale (VAS), and a Roland-Morris Disability Questionnaire (RMDQ) score of at least 9. Patients rece...

ConclusionsThe RUAM was useful to establish a consensus on patient ‐specific criteria for referral/selection for SCS in chronic pain. The e‐health tool may help physicians learn to apply an integrated approach of clinical and psychosocial factors.SignificanceDetermining the eligibility of Spinal Cord Stimulation in patients with chronic pain requires careful consideration of a variety of clinical and psychosocial factors. Using a systematic approach to combine evidence from clinical studies and expert opinion, a multidisciplinary European expert panel developed detailed recommendations to support appropriate referral a...
