Tui-na is a very important component of Chinese medicine. It is a well-respected treatment modality known to be helpful and safe for a wide range of conditions. It can be considered as a certain kind of massage which is performed at acupoints, meridians, and collaterals by pushing, finger twisting, grasping thumb waving pressing, patting, palm twisting, and other manipulation techniques. At present, it is extensively used for relieving pain and stiffness associated with ankylosing spondylitis in China, even though there is a lack of evidence to support its validation and feasibility...

PURPOSE: C2 fixation is a demanding procedure, particularly in patients with variants of C1-C2 anatomy. The inferior articular process (IAP) of the axis can be an alternative for screw placement. We report the results of a CT study of C2 IAP anatomy and we present the clinical experience of 28 patients operated with this technique. METHODS: Anatomical study: 50 CT angiographies of the vertebral arteries (VA) were used for this study and, therefore, 100 IAPs were considered...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical management for lumbar stenosis is generally safe and provides significant improvements in pain, disability, and function. Successful lumbar decompression hinges on removing an appropriate amount of lamina and other compressive pathology in the lateral recess. Too little bony decompression can result in persistent pain and disability, while over resection of the pars and/or facets may jeopardize spinal stability. CASE REPORT: In this unique report, we present for the first time an acute iatrogenic grade 4 L5-S1 spondylolisthesis distal to a L3-5 laminectomy and circumferential instrumented fusion due to bilateral iatrogenic L5 pars fractures and its management and clinical outcomes after revision operation...

PURPOSE: To determine the efficacy of discography and discoblock in the treatment of low back pain (LBP) associated with painful Schmorl's nodes (SNs). METHODS: Between January 2010 and February 2015, 46 patients were studied who had LBP suspected to be secondary to SNs. There were 34 men and 12 women, and mean age was 54.2 years (range 42-68 years). All patients underwent provocation discography, and discoblock was given to positive patients (confirmed to have painful SNs)...

Jörg Klekamp
PURPOSE: Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is the commonest spinal cord disease in adults. This paper compares patients who developed CSM after successful treatment of syringomyelia to those with CSM exclusively related to degenerative spinal disease. METHODS: In this prospective study, 70 consecutive patients with CSM and spondylotic changes in at least three levels underwent 73 operations between 2005 and 2015 (mean follow-up: 39 ± 36 months). Patients with treated syringomyelia (group A, n = 30) and those without (group B, n = 40) were distinguished...

PURPOSE: Search for evidence pertaining to the effectiveness of drains used in spinal surgeries. METHOD: PubMed and EMBASE databases were searched for articles pertaining to the use of drains in all types of spinal surgery. The bibliographies of relevant studies were searched for additional papers that met the initial inclusion criteria. Level I and II studies were scored according to guidelines in the Cochrane Collaboration Back Review Group. We utilised the Population, Intervention, Comparison, Outcomes and Study design (PICOS) method to define our study eligibility criteria...

PURPOSE: To identify the effects of corrective long spinal fusion to the ilium on physical function in patients with adult spinal deformity (ASD). METHODS: Thirty patients who underwent corrective long spinal fusion to the ilium were prospectively analysed. Patients were divided into the ++ group [sagittal vertical axis (SVA) ≥ 95 mm and pelvic tilt (PT) ≥ 30°, 14 patients] and 0+ group (SVA <95 mm or PT <30°, 16 patients). Subjects' low back pain [visual analogue scale (VAS) (pain with motion)], muscle strength (knee extensors and hip flexors), balance [timed up and go (TUG)], gait performance [10-metre walking test (10MWT, maximum speed), and 6-minute walk test (6MWT)] were assessed before surgery, at discharge, and 6 and 12 months after the surgery...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to assess long-term follow-up data after anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF) with and without Caspar plating (ACDF + PS) for the treatment of cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) with special focus on functional outcome, pain, and repeat surgery for adjacent segment disease (ASD). METHOD: Hospital records of 45 patients who were affected by CSM and underwent ACDF or ACDF + PS at least 17 years ago were reviewed...

Katrina Treon, M Ockendon
Lumbar spinal stenosis is most often a degenerate condition observed in the older population. We describe the case of a lady with typical claudicant symptoms with an unusual cause of stenosis identified at the time of her decompressive surgery. On review of the literature this is only the second case of osteochondral loose body as a cause for lumbar spinal stenosis and thus remains a rare phenomenon.

PURPOSE: Primary ciliary dyskinesia (PCD) is a respiratory syndrome in which 'random' organ orientation can occur; with approximately 46% of patients developing situs inversus totalis at organogenesis. The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between organ anatomy and curve convexity by studying the prevalence and convexity of idiopathic scoliosis in PCD patients with and without situs inversus. METHODS: Chest radiographs of PCD patients were systematically screened for existence of significant lateral spinal deviation using the Cobb angle...

PURPOSE: Thoraco-lumbar kyphosis (TLK) is poorly described in the literature and its surgical treatment remains equivocal for patients with low pelvic incidence. The aim of the study was to identify which surgical correction would yield the best functional results as measured by the Oswestry score. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This is a retrospective study including patients described as a type 1 of Roussouly's classification with a thoraco-lumbar kyphosis. Fifty-six patients with degenerative spinal disease were included, 42 (75%) with scoliosis and 14 (25%) without...

PURPOSE: To investigate whether pre-operative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the lumbar multifidus muscle (LMM) would predict clinical outcomes following lumbar spinal decompression for symptomatic spinal stenosis. METHODS: A prospective cohort of patients with symptomatic neurogenic claudication, documented spinal stenosis on pre-operative MRI underwent spinal decompression. All subjects completed standardised outcome measures (Core Outcome Measures Index (COMI), Oswestry Disability Index (ODI v2...
