PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to develop a stratification scheme for surgical spinal care to serve as a framework for referrals and distribution of patients with spinal disorders. METHODS: We used a modified Delphi process. A literature search identified experts for the consensus panel and the panel was expanded by inviting spine surgeons known to be global opinion leaders. After creating a seed document of five hierarchical levels of surgical care, a four-step modified Delphi process (question validation, collection of factors, evaluation of factors, re-evaluation of factors) was performed...

PURPOSE: Chiropractic care is popular for low back pain, but may increase the risk for acute lumbar disc herniation (LDH). Low back pain is a common early (prodromal) symptom of LDH and commonly precedes LDH diagnosis. Our objective was to investigate the association between chiropractic care and acute LDH with early surgical intervention, and contrast this with the association between primary care physician (PCP) care and acute LDH with early surgery. METHODS: Using a self-controlled case series design and population-based healthcare databases in Ontario, Canada, we investigated all adults with acute LDH requiring emergency department (ED) visit and early surgical intervention from April 1994 to December 2004...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this review was to develop recommendations for non-invasive management of pain due to osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCF) that could be applied in medically underserved areas and low- and middle-income countries. METHODS: We conducted a systematic review and best evidence synthesis of systematic reviews on the non-invasive management of OVCF. Eligible reviews were critically appraised using the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network criteria...

REVIEW
Shutao Gao, Zhengtao Lv, Huang Fang
PURPOSE: Several studies have revealed that robot-assisted technique might improve the pedicle screw insertion accuracy, but owing to the limited sample sizes in the individual study reported up to now, whether or not robot-assisted technique is superior to conventional freehand technique is indefinite. Thus, we performed this systematic review and meta-analysis based on randomized controlled trials to assess which approach is better. METHODS: Electronic databases including PubMed, EMBASE, CENTRAL, ISI Web of Science, CNKI and WanFang were systematically searched to identify potentially eligible articles...

REVIEW
Marco Muratore, Andrea Ferrera, Alessandro Masse, Alessandro Bistolfi
PURPOSE: To analyze clinical, radiographic and magnetic resonance findings that might predict risk of complications and conservative treatment failure of osteoporotic vertebral fractures. METHODS: The authors conducted a systematic review of observational studies, collecting data on osteoporotic vertebral fracture and complications like vertebral collapse, kyphosis, pseudoarthrosis, and neurologic deficit. MeSH items such as 'spinal fracture/radiology,' 'spinal fracture/complications,' 'spinal fracture/diagnosis' were used...

PURPOSE: Although lumbar spondylolysis is encountered in general population with an incidence estimated to be 3-10%, limited information is available for children. The aim of the study is to determine the prevalence of spondylolysis according to associated vertebral bony malformation and spinopelvic parameters in children under eight requiring CT evaluation for unrelated lumbar conditions. METHODS: Seven hundred and seventeen abdominal and pelvic multi-detector CT scans were obtained in patients under 8 years of age were reviewed...

PURPOSE: While there is a consensus that pelvic incidence (PI) remains constant after skeletal maturity, recent reports argue that PI increases after 60 years. This study aims to investigate whether PI increases with age and to determine potential associated factors. METHODS: 1510 patients with various spinal degenerative and deformity pathologies were enrolled, along with an additional 115 asymptomatic volunteers. Subjects were divided into six age subgroups with 10-year intervals...

STUDY DESIGN: A non-randomized, prospective, concurrent control cohort study. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this study is to develop and evaluate a method to quantify the dimensions of the cone of economy (COE) and the energy expenditure associated with maintaining a balanced posture within the COE, scoliosis patients and compare them to matched non-scoliotic controls in a group of adult degenerative. Balance is defined as the ability of the human body to maintain its center of mass (COM) within the base of support with minimal postural sway...

PURPOSE: To evaluate short- and intermediate-term effects of kinematic training (KT) using virtual reality (VR) or laser in patients with chronic neck pain. METHODS: A randomised controlled trial with three arms (laser, VR, control) to post-intervention (N = 90), and two arms (laser or VR) continuing to 3 months follow-up. Home training intervention was provided during 4 weeks to VR and laser groups while control group waited. OUTCOME MEASURES: Primary outcome measures included neck disability index (NDI), global perceived effect (GPE), and cervical motion velocity (mean and peak)...

PURPOSE: Evidence guiding the use of CT and MRI scans in blunt trauma patients who are obtunded remains controversial. This study aims to determine and predict if computed tomography (CT) scans alone can be performed without risking oversight of substantial injuries found on follow-up magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). METHODS: This is a retrospective cohort study of 63 blunt trauma patients with a Glasgow Coma Scale of < 8. Data were collated from electronic medical records and included patient demographics, premorbid mobility, mechanism of injury, suspected level of injury and neurological examination findings...

Uruj Zehra, Cora Bow, Jason Pui Yin Cheung, Henry Pang, William Lu, Dino Samartzis
PURPOSE: The pathogenesis and the clinical impact of disc calcification are not well known. Utilizing ultra-short time-to-echo (UTE) magnetic resonance imaging, the UTE Disc Sign (UDS) (i.e., hypo/hyper-intense disc band) was developed and found to be more significantly related to pain and disability than the conventional T2-weighted (T2W) MRI. It has been hypothesized that the UDS may represent mineralized deposits in the disc. The following study addressed the relationship between disc calcification on plain radiographs to that of the UDS on MRI...

PURPOSE: Primary osseous hemangiopericytoma (HPC) of the spine is exceedingly rare. HPC has malignant potential and has the capacity for metastasis and local recurrence. We herein present the first case of recurrent primary osseous HPC in the thoracic spine that was successfully treated by total spondylectomy at three vertebral levels and spinal reconstruction. METHODS: We performed a two-stage operation for recurrent HPC using anterior and posterior approaches at the T5-T7 vertebrae...

PURPOSE: To test the responsiveness of the EuroQoL 5-dimension (EQ-5D) utility scores for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). METHODS: A baseline sample of 227 AIS patients was recruited between August and October 2015, and was surveyed prospectively to 9-12 months follow-up. EQ-5D-5L utility scores were derived using a two-step approach: (1) cross-walking from five-level responses to three-level responses and (2) applying the EQ-5D-3L Chinese population value set...
