STUDY DESIGN: Technical report on cadavers. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate preliminary feasibility and safety of lumbar sagittal alignment correction with anterior hyperlordotic cages used to overpower previous posterior spinal instrumentation. METHODS: Hyperlordotic 30° anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) cages were inserted in collapsed L5-S1 disc space of 2 cadavers to overpower prior posterior L5-S1 pedicle screws and rod constructs. A distinct technique of opening up the disc space and creation of intersegmental lordosis was employed using a large endplate distractor and transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) paddle distractor...

STUDY DESIGN: In vitro human cadaveric biomechanical analysis. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the segmental stability of a stand-alone spacer (SAS) device compared with the traditional anterior cervical plate (ACP) construct in the setting of a 2-level cervical fusion construct or as a hybrid construct adjacent to a previous 1-level ACP construct. METHODS: Twelve human cadaveric cervical spines (C2-T1) were nondestructively tested with a custom 6-degree-of-freedom spine simulator under axial rotation (AR), flexion-extension (FE), and lateral bending (LB) at 1...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. OBJECTIVE: The S2-alar-iliac (S2AI) technique has been described as an alternative method for pelvic fixation in place of iliac screws (ISs) in spinal deformity surgery. The objective of this study was to analyze the impact of S2AI screws on radiographical outcomes, including spinopelvic parameters. METHODS: A retrospective review of 17 patients receiving ISs and 46 patients receiving S2AI screws for correction of adult spinal deformity between 2010 and 2015 with minimum 1-year follow-up was conducted...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data. OBJECTIVE: There is a paucity of data on the effect of operative duration on postoperative complications during adult spinal deformity surgery (ASDS). The study attempts to explore and quantify the association between increased operation times and postoperative complications. METHODS: A retrospective cohort analysis was performed on the American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP) database from 2010 to 2014...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective clinical study. OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to compare intraoperative conditions and clinical results of patients undergoing pre-psoas oblique lateral interbody fusion (OLIF) using navigation or conventional fluoroscopy (C-ARM) techniques. METHODS: Forty-two patients (22 patients by navigation and 20 by fluoroscopy) underwent the OLIF procedure at 2 medical centers, and records were reviewed. Clinical data was collected and compared between the 2 groups...

STUDY DESIGN: Review and technical report. OBJECTIVE: Intraoperative ultrasound has been used by spine surgeons since the early 1980s. Since that time, more advanced modes of intraoperative imaging and navigation have become widely available. Although the use of ultrasound during spine surgery has fallen out of favor, it remains the only true real-time imaging modality that allows surgeons to visualize soft tissue anatomy instantly and continuously while operating...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. OBJECTIVES: Lateral interbody fixation is being increasingly used for the correction of segmental sagittal parameters. One factor that affects postoperative correction is the resistance afforded by posterior hypertrophic facet joints in the degenerative lumbar spine. In this article, we describe a novel preoperative motion segment classification system to predict postoperative correction of segmental sagittal alignment after lateral lumbar interbody fusion...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study of registry data. OBJECTIVES: Aging of society and recent advances in surgical techniques and general anesthesia have increased the demand for spinal surgery in elderly patients. Many complications have been described in elderly patients, but a multicenter study of perioperative complications in spinal surgery in patients aged 80 years or older has not been reported. Therefore, the goal of the study was to analyze complications associated with spine surgery in patients aged 80 years or older with cervical, thoracic, or lumbar lesions...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study. OBJECTIVE: To analyze the various anatomical parameters that influence segmental stability in patients suffering from lumbar intra spinal cysts (LISCs) and to determine the outcome of microscopic unilateral laminotomy and cystectomy. METHODS: All patients that were surgically managed for a LISC between 2007 and 2013 with more than 3 years of follow-up were reviewed. Those without associated instability were evaluated for segmental mobility, segmental angulation, facet inclination, stage of disc degeneration, and level of involvement on MRI and dynamic radiographs...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study. OBJECTIVES: Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) has been widely used in spinal fusion surgery, but there is little information on rhBMP-2 utilization in single-level posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF). The purpose of our study was to evaluate the trends and demographics of rhBMP-2 utilization in single-level PLIF. METHODS: Patients who underwent single-level PLIF from 2005 to 2011 were identified by searching ICD-9 diagnosis and procedure codes in the PearlDiver Patient Records Database, a national database of orthopedic insurance records...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study. OBJECTIVE: Several studies have shown that the accuracy of pedicle screw placement significantly improves with use of computer-assisted surgery (CAS). Yet few studies have compared the incidence of postoperative complications between CAS and conventional techniques. The objective of this study is to determine the difference in postoperative complication rates between CAS and conventional techniques in spine surgery. METHODS: The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (ACS-NSQIP) database was used to identify patients who underwent posterior lumbar fusion from 2011 to 2013...

STUDY DESIGN: Literature review. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this review is to describe the injuries associated with sacral fractures and to analyze their impact on patient outcome. METHODS: A comprehensive narrative review of the literature was performed to identify the injuries associated with sacral fractures.

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective database review. OBJECTIVES: After the Food and Drug Administration approved bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP) in 2002, BMP was used off-label in the cervical spine to increase bone growth and bony fusion. Since then, concerns have been raised regarding complication rates and safety. This study was conducted to examine the use of BMP in anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) in the Medicare population and to determine risk of complications and associated costs within 90 days of surgery...

STUDY DESIGN: Cadaver study. OBJECTIVE: To determine the bone density of lumbar vertebral anatomic subregions. Bone mineral density (BMD) is a major factor in osseous fixation construct strength. The standard region for implant fixation of the spine is the pedicle; however, other regions may be more viable options with higher bone quality. METHODS: Using computed tomography images, the spine was digitally isolated by applying a filter for adult bone...
