PURPOSE: Studies comparing the outcome of spine surgery with that of large-joint replacement report equivocal findings. The patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) used in such studies are typically generic and may not be sufficiently sensitive to the successes/failures of treatment. This study compared different indices of "success" in patients undergoing surgery for degenerative disorders of the lumbar spine, hip, or knee, using a validated, multidimensional, and joint-specific PROM...

PURPOSE: To elucidate the effects of growth differentiation factor-6 (GDF6) on: (i) gene expression of inflammatory/pain-related molecules and structural integrity in the rabbit intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration model, and (ii) sensory dysfunction and changes in pain-marker expression in dorsal nerve ganglia (DRGs) in the rat xenograft radiculopathy model. METHODS: Forty-six adolescent rabbits received anular-puncture in two non-consecutive lumbar IVDs. Four weeks later, phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) or GDF6 (1, 10 or 100 µg) was injected into the nucleus pulposus (NP) of punctured discs and followed for 4 weeks for gene expression analysis and 12 weeks for structural analyses...

STUDY DESIGN: Prospective longitudinal study. OBJECTIVE: To determine whether systemic cytokines and C-reactive protein (CRP) during an acute episode of low back pain (LBP) differ between individuals who did and did not recover by 6 months and to identify sub-groups based on patterns of inflammatory, psychological, and sleep features associated with recovery/non-recovery. Systemic inflammation is observed in chronic LBP and may contribute to the transition from acute to persistent LBP...

PURPOSE: The objective of this article is to report a case of type V osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) undergoing posterior instrumented fusion for scoliosis. Type V OI is a moderately severe dysplasia causing primary defects in endochondral bone ossification or mineralisation. It is characterised by hyperplastic callus (HPC) formation, interosseous membrane calcifications, poor bone quality and spinal deformities including scoliosis. Data on the surgical management of spinal deformities in this patient group are lacking...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this review was to develop recommendations for the management of spinal disorders in low-income communities, with a focus on non-invasive pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies for non-specific low back and neck pain. METHODS: We synthesized two evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for the management of low back and neck pain. Our recommendations considered benefits, harms, quality of evidence, and costs, with attention to feasibility in medically underserved areas and low- and middle-income countries...

PURPOSE: Spine duplication is a very rare condition with the literature being composed of only case reports. All previously reported cases were thoracolumbar spine duplications. Here, we report cervicothoracic spine duplication in a neurological intact male. According to our knowledge, it is the first case in the literature of cervicothoracic spine duplication. CLINICAL PRESENTATION: A 3-year-old patient presented to a primary physician with a complaint of short stature...

PURPOSE: The purpose of this study is to examine variations of the foramen transversarium and the vertebral artery in computed tomography angiographies (CTa) of the cervical spine, investigate their coexistence, and present possible considerations regarding such variations in spine surgical procedures. METHODS: Fifty CTa of the neck were retrospectively reviewed. Transverse and anteroposterior diameter of the foramen and diameter of the vertebral artery were measured...

PURPOSE: Non-specific spinal pain can occur at all ages and current evidence suggests that pediatric non-specific spinal pain is predictive for adult spinal conditions. A 5-year long, prospective cohort study was conducted to identify the lifestyle and environmental factors leading to non-specific spinal pain in childhood. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Data were collected from school children aged 7-16 years, who were randomly selected from three different geographic regions in Hungary...

PURPOSE: Interbody fusion by open discectomy is the usual treatment for degenerative lumbar disease but requires a relatively long recovery period. Prevalent several interbody fusion methods have shown limitations by its own character. Full endoscopic lumbar interbody fusion (FELIF) has advantages in direct decompression of pathology with minimal invasive technique. We report novel technique of endoscopic fusion method through full guided with endoscopic view monitoring system. METHODS: The authors provide an introduction of FELIF technique followed by a description of the technical steps with discussion on its indications and advantages...

PURPOSE: Previous studies did not specifically assess the influence of proximal femoral angle (PFA) on sagittal balance in high-grade spondylolisthesis (HGS). In addition, the relationship between PFA and quality of life (QOL) remains unknown. This study determines if increased PFA is associated with decreased QOL and sagittal balance in lumbosacral HGS. METHODS: This retrospective case-control study was performed on a cohort of 56 normal subjects and 42 patients with HGS...

PURPOSE: Addition of posterior instrumented fusion to laminoplasty (posterior decompression with instrumented fusion: PDF) can improve the surgical outcome of patients with K-line (-) cervical ossification of the longitudinal ligament (OPLL) compared with laminoplasty alone. We sought to elucidate the factors that are significantly associated with a better outcome after PDF for K-line (-) OPLL. METHODS: The present study included 38 patients who underwent PDF for K-line (-) OPLL and were followed up for at least 1 year after surgery...

PURPOSE: Documents indicated that the average prevalence of intraspinal neural axis abnormalities (INAAs) in presumed idiopathic scoliosis (PIS) patients was about 17.7%. However, paucity study focuses on the incidence of INAAs in severe spinal deformity (SSDs). In this study, we investigate the incidence of intraspinal neural axis abnormalities (IINAAs) and the clinical relevance in SSD at a single center. METHODS: All the patients with SSDs admitted for spinal surgery were evaluated from 2003 to 2014...

BACKGROUND: Iliac crest has long been the gold standard for lumbar fusion, but concerns over donor site morbidity have led to a wide variety of bone graft substitutes. Despite prolific research, a general consensus is yet to be reached on bone graft materials that lead to optimal fusion. PURPOSE: The purpose of this review is to evaluate the current literature for bone graft material options that maximize fusion rate in posterolateral lumbar fusion surgery. DESIGN: Systematic Review...

PURPOSE: Cervicothoracic paravertebral neoplasms extending into the mediastinum pose a surgical challenge due the complex regional anatomy, their biological nature, rarity and surgeon's unfamiliarity with the region. We aim to define a surgical access framework addressing the aforementioned complexities whilst achieving oncological clearance. METHODS: We carried out a retrospective review of 28 consecutive patients operated in two tertiary referral centres between 1998 and 2015...

PURPOSE: The present study was designed to ascertain how altered biomechanics in adolescent idiopathic scoliotic (AIS) intervertebral discs (IVDs) affected tissue compositions and aggrecan processing compared to age matched and aged human IVDs. Newborn, 2- and 10-year-old ovine IVDs were also examined. METHODS: Aggrecan populations were separated by Sepharose CL2B chromatography, composite agarose polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis (CAPAGE) and identified by immunoblotting...

PURPOSE: There are few epidemiological studies of spinal surgery in Asia and none in Japan. The goal of this study was to review spine surgeries performed in our group between 2004 and 2015 in a cross-sectional study, with a focus on the effects of the superaging society on the characteristics and trends of spinal surgeries. METHODS: A retrospective review was performed for all 45,831 spinal surgeries conducted between 2004 and 2015 and recorded in our prospective multicenter database...

PURPOSE: To study the feasibility and outcome of stand-alone trans-articular screw (TAS) fixation for atlantoaxial instability (AAI) in children less than 8 years of age. METHODS: This prospective study was conducted between 2009 and 2014. Thirteen children suffering from AAI were operated for a TAS fixation. Feasibility of TAS fixation was assessed on CT scan and a screw diameter was chosen based on C2 isthmus diameter. Demographic data collected included the etiology for AAI, age, and sex...
