PURPOSE: The three aims of this Spine Tango registry study of patients undergoing decompression for spinal stenosis were to: report the rate of dural tear (DT) stratified by treatment centre; find factors associated with an increased likelihood of incurring a DT; and compare treatment outcomes in relation to DT (none vs. repaired vs. unrepaired DT). METHODS: Multivariate logistic regression was used to assess the association between DT and patient and treatment characteristics...

PURPOSE: The goals of this study were to assess the accuracy of pedicle screw insertion using an intraoperative cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) system, and to analyze the factors potentially influencing this accuracy. METHODS: Six hundred and ninety-five pedicle screws were inserted in 118 patients between October 2013 and March 2016. Screw insertion was performed using 2D-fluoroscopy or CBCT-based navigation. Accuracy was assessed in terms of breach and reposition...

PURPOSE: Metal implants have been used to treat adolescent idiopathic scoliosis since the 1960s. Only recently, however, it has the issue of metal-bone breakdown secondary to metal corrosion in situ come to light, raising concerns of possible long-term complications from the resulting metallosis and inflammation of spinal tissues. We present a case of a patient with neurological deficit, pain, and disability with Harrington rod in place for over 30 years, to bring attention to the issue of bio-corrosion of metal implants and its effect on human tissue...

PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to assess the potential role of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) as a predictor of surgical outcomes in patients with cervical compressive myelopathy (CCM). Surgical decompression is often recommended for symptomatic CCM. It is important to know the prognosis of surgical outcomes and to recommend appropriate timing for surgery. METHODS: We enrolled 26 patients with CCM who underwent surgery. The Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) score for cervical myelopathy was evaluated before and 6 months after surgery...

PURPOSE: The objective is to compare the intraoperative monitoring (IOM) outcomes between degenerative cervical and thoracic spine decompression surgery. METHOD: A total of 97 patients with cervical compression myelopathy (CCM) and 75 patients with thoracic compression myelopathy (TCM) were prospectively collected between December 2012 and June 2015 in our spine center. Somatosensory-evoked potentials (SSEP) and motor-evoked potentials (MEP) were used for IOM. The postoperative neurologic status of each patient was assessed immediately after surgery...

Priyan R Landham, Angus S Don, Peter A Robertson
PURPOSE: To examine monosegmental lordosis after posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) surgery and relate lordosis to cage size, shape, and placement. METHODS: Eighty-three consecutive patients underwent single-level PLIF with paired identical lordotic cages involving a wide decompression and bilateral facetectomies. Cage parameters relating to size (height, lordosis, and length) and placement (expressed as a ratio relative to the length of the inferior vertebral endplate) were recorded...

PURPOSE: In clinical decision-making, it is crucial to discuss the probability of adverse outcomes with the patient. A large proportion of the outcomes are difficult to classify as either failure or success. Consequently, cutoff values in patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) for "failure" and "worsening" are likely to be different from those of "non-success". The aim of this study was to identify dichotomous cutoffs for failure and worsening, 12 months after surgical treatment for lumbar disc herniation, in a large registry cohort...

PURPOSE: To study the known or suspected risk factors for sciatica: Tallness, overweight, smoking, leisure-time physical exercise, self-reported health and occupation, and how they predict hospitalizations due to sciatica. Only a few cohort studies have previously focused on the risk factors for sciatica. METHODS: The 13,095 subjects, free from low back disorders at the baseline in 1973-1976 were followed up to the end of 2011 via the Care Register for Health Care...

PURPOSE: The aim is to analyze the agreement between different types of physicians in terms of the inter-observer and intra-observer reliability in addition to the agreement between the experienced and non-experienced physicians with respect to three different classification systems for diagnosis of cervical spinal canal stenosis. METHODS: Total nine doctors including experienced group of three doctors and non-experienced group of six doctors classified the patients according to three different classification in an independent, blinded manner using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to diagnose cervical canal stenosis...

INTRODUCTION: The comparison of implants and correction methods remain controversial in AIS. Excellent frontal and axial correction rates have been reported with all-screw constructs, but at the expense of sagittal alignment, which has a tendency to flatten postoperatively. Posteromedial translation using hybrid constructs seems to preserve and improve thoracic kyphosis (TK), but no series exist to date with a significant number of hypokyphotic patients. In addition, the measures of TK in 2D are often wrong in severe AIS due to axial rotation...

Cheng Li, Jingzhu Duan, Lei Li
PURPOSE: To report a case of complex odontoid fracture malunion accompanied by atlantoaxial dislocation which was treated with a new surgical approach. METHODS: A 53-year-old female was admitted due to progressive symptoms with a stiff limp and unsteady gait. Preoperative examination, diagnostic radiography, computed tomography, and magnetic resonance imaging were performed following admission. The examinations showed odontoid fracture malunion, an old right axial zygapophyseal fracture, atlantoaxial dislocation, and spinal cord injury...

BACKGROUND: Minimally invasive surgical techniques have been developed to minimize tissue damage, reduce narcotic requirements, decrease blood loss, and, therefore, potentially avoid prolonged immobilization. Thus, the purpose of the present retrospective study was to assess the safety and efficacy of a minimally invasive posterior approach with transforaminal lumbar interbody debridement and fusion plus pedicle screw fixation in lumbar spondylodiscitis in comparison to an open surgical approach...

PURPOSE: Jarcho-Levin syndrome patients commonly suffer from repeated respiratory infections and become ventilator dependent due to an insufficient thoracic volume. Multiple congenital vertebral anomalies are associated with this genetic disorder and results in stunted spine growth. The purpose of this case report is to present the results of a hybrid vertical expandable prosthetic titanium rib (VEPTR) and magnetically controlled growing rod (MCGR) construct for the management of a patient with Jarcho-Levin syndrome...

PURPOSE: Low back pain is a significant problem for school-aged athletes. Although some risk factors relating to sports activities have been reported, the effect of lifestyles on low back pain in school-aged athletes is not clear. The purpose of this study was to elucidate the association between lifestyles, such as wake-up time, bedtime, sleeping time, and TV-viewing or video-game-playing time per day and low back pain of school-aged athletes. METHODS: A cross-sectional study was conducted with school-aged athletes (aged 6-15 years, n = 6441) using a self-reported questionnaire and multivariate logistic regression models were used for analyses...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the reliability and validity of clinical tests to assess the anatomical integrity of the cervical spine in adults with neck pain and its associated disorders. METHODS: We updated the systematic review of the 2000-2010 Bone and Joint Decade Task Force on Neck Pain and its Associated Disorders. We also searched the literature to identify studies on the reliability and validity of Doppler velocimetry for the evaluation of cervical arteries. Two independent reviewers screened and critically appraised studies...

PURPOSE: Dropped head syndrome (DHS) is a rare clinical entity which is defined as a chin-on-chest deformity in the standing or sitting position, resulting from sagittal imbalance of the cervical region. The purpose of the present study was to clarify the radiologic features of DHS in the overall sagittal alignment of the spine. We also investigated the changes in sagittal alignment after correction surgery for DHS. METHODS: Twenty DHS patients [1 male and 19 female, with an average age of 78...
