BACKGROUND CONTEXT: With more cement augmentation procedures done, the occurrence of serious complications is also expected to rise. Symptomatic central cement embolization is a rare but very serious complication. Moreover, the pathophysiology and treatment of intrathoracic cement embolism remain controversial. PURPOSE: In this case series, we are trying to identify various presentations and suggest our emergent management scheme for symptomatic central cement embolization...

PURPOSE: To assess paraspinal neurogenic tumors with diffusion-weighted MR imaging. METHODS: Retrospective analysis was done upon 34 patients with paraspinal neurogenic tumors that underwent diffusion-weighted MR imaging. The ADC values of the mediastinal neurogenic tumors were calculated and correlated with biopsy results. RESULTS: The ADC of benign paraspinal neurogenic tumors (1.5 ± 0.28 × 10(-3) mm(2)/s) was significantly higher (P = 0...

PURPOSE: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the best diagnostic imaging method for low back pain. However, the technique is currently not utilized in its full capacity, often failing to depict painful intervertebral discs (IVDs), potentially due to the rough degeneration classification system used clinically today. MR image histograms, which reflect the IVD heterogeneity, may offer sensitive imaging biomarkers for IVD degeneration classification. This study investigates the feasibility of using histogram analysis as means of objective and continuous grading of IVD degeneration...

PURPOSE: The core outcome measures index (COMI) is a validated multidimensional instrument for assessing patient-reported outcome in patients with back problems. The aim of the present study is to translate the COMI into Dutch and validate it for use in native Dutch speakers with low back pain. METHODS: The COMI was translated into Dutch following established guidelines and avoiding region-specific terminology. A total of 89 Dutch-speaking patients with low back pain were recruited from 8 centers, located in the Dutch-speaking part of Belgium...

PURPOSE: To assess the safety of surgical intervention for extraspinal tumors in the cervical spine. METHODS: 110 consecutive patients were enrolled and followed-up at least 12 months or until death. The complication rates and risk factors were documented and analyzed. RESULTS: The quality of life in the surviving patients was significantly improved. The overall local recurrence rate was 17.3%. Twenty percent of patients developed distant metastasis...

PURPOSE: This study aimed at studying the accuracy and safety of extra-pedicular screw insertion for dysplastic pedicles in AIS comparing cannulated screw system versus conventional screw system. METHODS: 104 AIS patients with 1524 pedicle screws were evaluated using CT scan. 302 screws were inserted in dysplastic pedicles using fluoroscopic guidance technique. 155 screws were inserted using a cannulated system (Group 1), whereas 147 screws were inserted using standard screws (Group 2)...

BACKGROUND: Protocols including combination of surgery and radiotherapy are more and more frequent in the treatment of bone tumors of the spine. In metastatic disease, combination of surgery and radiotherapy is since long time accepted, as based on clinical evidence. In primary tumors, combination of surgery and radiotherapy can be considered in all the cases in which a satisfactory oncological margin cannot be achieved: high-grade malignancies, recurrent tumors, huge tumors expanding in an extracompartimental area, and when tumor-free margin requires unacceptable functional sacrifices...

PURPOSE: It is difficult for clinicians to inform patients about the success rate of a treatment as a cervical anterior discectomy procedure. Ideally, a proportion of good outcome as rated by patients is known. Patient-reported outcome measurements are helpful. The purpose is to relate the difference in Neck Disability Index (NDI) after a cervical anterior discectomy procedure for single level cervical degenerative disc disease with the patients' rating of their actual clinical situation after long-term follow-up to define the substantial clinical benefit (SCB)...

PURPOSE: Chance fracture of the high thoracic spine is rare, and its impact on the adjacent cervical spine can be important. METHODS: We present the case of a 16-year-old male, who fell down from a 2 m height, in an unknown context as he has a mental retardation, and no witness saw the accident. Initial CT scan revealed a comminuted depressed fracture of the right parietal bone, associated with a chance fracture at the level of T3 with a kyphosis and bilateral lung contusion...

PURPOSE: Anterior transarticular fixation of the C1-C2 vertebrae is a well-known technique that involves screw insertion through the body of the C2 vertebra into the lateral masses of the atlas through an anterior transcervical approach. Meanwhile, contralateral screw insertion has been previously described only in anatomical studies. METHODS: We describe two case reports of the clinical application of this new technique. RESULTS: In Case 1, the patient was diagnosed with an unstable C1 fracture...

PURPOSE: Part I of this study explored mechanisms of disc failure in a complex posture incorporating physiological amounts of flexion and shear at a loading rate considerably lower than likely to occur in a typical in vivo manual handling situation. Given the strain-rate-dependent mechanical properties of the heavily hydrated disc, loading rate will likely influence the mechanisms of disc failure. Part II investigates the mechanisms of failure in healthy discs subjected to surprise-rate compression while held in the same complex posture...

PURPOSE: To date, the mechanisms of disc failure have been explored at a microstructural level in relatively simple postures. However, in vivo the disc is known to be subjected to complex loading in compression, bending and shear, and the influence of these factors on the mechanisms of disc failure is yet to be described at a microstructural level. The purpose of this study was to provide a microstructural analysis of the mechanisms of failure in healthy discs subjected to compression while held in a complex posture incorporating physiological amounts of flexion and facet-constrained shear...

PURPOSE: To report the case of a pediatric patient with intramedullary spinal aneurysm. METHODS: A 9-year-old boy presented with low back pain and subsequent gait disturbance. He had no history of trauma. After admission, MRI revealed an intramedullary spinal cord mass lesion surrounded by hemorrhage at the cervical-thoracic junction. Initial treatment was started with intravenous methylprednisolone and bed rest. Neurological deficit disappeared under careful observation for a few months...

PURPOSE: Evaluation and surgical management for adult spinal deformity (ASD) patients varies between health care providers. The purpose of this study is to identify appropriateness of specific approaches and management strategies for the treatment of ASD. METHODS: From January to July 2015, the AOSpine Knowledge Deformity Forum performed a modified Delphi survey where 53 experienced deformity surgeons from 24 countries, rated the appropriateness of management strategies for multiple ASD clinical scenarios...

Tian Cheng, Paul Gerdhem
PURPOSE: The outcome of surgery for degenerative lumbar scoliosis was studied in the Swedish Spine register. METHODS: 209 patients (mean age 66 years) were identified; 45 had undergone decompression and/or fusion of one segment (minor group) and 164 had undergone fusion of two or more segments, with or without decompression (major group). RESULTS: VAS back pain, VAS leg pain, ODI and EQ-5D index improved after surgery in both groups (p < 0...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the safety and efficacy of a superelastic shape-memory alloy (SNT) rod used in the treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). METHODS: AIS Patients with Lenke 1 curves undergoing fusion surgery were randomized (1:1) at the time of surgery to receive either the SNT or a conventional titanium alloy (CTA) rod. Radiographs were obtained preoperatively and postoperatively up to 5 years of follow-up. Parameters assessed included coronal and sagittal Cobb angles, and overall truncal and shoulder balance...

PURPOSE: Although psychological factors are assumed to be the primary cause of stress-related back pain, there have been no studies of the relationships between stress and low back pain in an animal model. The purpose of this study was to examine the influence of specific alternation of rhythm in temperature (SART) stress on gait abnormality using the CatWalk method in a rat model of low back pain caused by lumbar facetectomy. METHODS: Sixty rats were divided into three groups: the control, sham and experimental groups...
