Background Obesity is an increasing public health concern associated with increased perioperative complications and expense in lumbar spine fusions. While open and mini-open fusions such as transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) and minimally invasive TLIF (MIS-TLIF) are more challenging in obese patients, new MIS procedures like oblique lateral lumbar interbody fusion (OLLIF) may improve perioperative outcomes in obese patients relative to TLIF and MIS-TLIF. Purpose The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of obesity on perioperative outcomes in OLLIF, MIS-TLIF, and TLIF...

Lumbar spinal stenosis causes cauda equina and nerve root compression, resulting in neurological symptoms. Although trunk flexion during level walking may alleviate these symptoms by enabling spinal canal decompression, some patients do not use this strategy. We aimed to identify the kinetic and kinematic variables that affect trunk flexion in patients during level walking. Gait was recorded in 111 patients using a three-dimensional motion capture system and six force plates. From the data recorded, walking velocity, bilateral step length, cycle time, maximum trunk flexion angle, forward pelvic tilt angle, pelvic rotation angle, maximum and minimum joint angles, and moment and power of the lower limb were calculated...

Introduction: Epidural fibrosis (EF) contributes to unsatisfactory relief of symptoms and failed back syndrome after spine surgery. EF around the nerve root can be more refractory to treatment than the original disc herniation itself. Reoperation on the scar can produce more scarring. Few studies have been conducted regarding the type of material to be used for decreasing EF. Materials and Methods: The prospective randomized comparative study was conducted in the Department of Neurosurgery and Radiodiagnosis, of a tertiary care hospital...

Foot drop (FD) is an uncommon manifestation of nerve root compression secondary to lumbar degenerative disease (LDD). In most of these patients, FD is unilateral and is associated with low back pain and leg pain. A small number of cases have been described with bilateral FD, which is reported to occur simultaneously in a synchronous fashion. A 63-year-old male with a remote history of spinal surgery due to left painless FD presented with a new episode of right FD, this new FD initiated suddenly and it was not associated with low back pain or radicular pain...

Background: The Dynesys system remains the most widely implanted posterior non-fusion pedicle screw system. Various study designs used in investigations with good to excellent short- and mid-term results have been reported in the current literature. However, there is a lack of information concerning long-term outcomes following treatment for spinal stenosis with degenerative spondylolisthesis. Methods: The aim of our study was twofold. Firstly, to assess whether the dynamic stabilization in situ with the Dynesys System without bone grafting provides enough stability to prevent progression of spondylolisthesis and secondarily to maintain significant clinical improvement in a long-term follow-up (FU)...

PURPOSE: Correction surgery for cervical degenerative kyphosis (CDK) may carry a greater risk of causing neural complications such as spinal cord injury and C5 nerve palsy because spinal canal stenosis, osteoarthritis of the facet, and consequent foraminal stenosis may coexist with CDK. We have produced an algorithmic strategy of surgical intervention for CDK, and report the outcome. METHODS: Thirty-one patients who underwent correction surgery for CDK, with a kyphotic angle of 20° or more (from 20 to 74) were involved...

BACKGROUND: The Japanese Orthopaedic Association Back Pain Evaluation Questionnaire (JOABPEQ) was developed in 2007, including the five domains of Pain-related disorder, Lumbar spine dysfunction, Gait disturbance, Social life disturbance, and Psychological disorder. It is used by physicians to evaluate treatment efficacy by comparing scores before and after treatment. However, the JOABPEQ does not allow evaluation of the severity of a patient's condition compared to the general population at a single time point...

INTRODUCTION: Lumbar spinal stenosis is degenerative narrowing of the spinal canal and/or intervertebral foramen causing compression of the spinal cord and nerve roots. Traditional decompression techniques can often cause significant trauma and vertebral instability. This paper evaluates a method of increasing pedicle length to decompress the spinal and intervertebral foramen, which could be done minimally invasive. METHODS: Three Sawbone (Sawbones Europe, Sweden) and 1 cadaveric lumbar spine underwent bilateral pedicle distraction at L4...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: To fully understand the extent of limitations associated with symptomatic lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) and the functional outcome of its treatment, not only function during daily activities (e.g. using the 6-minute walk test (6MWT)) but also the quality of function should be objectively assessed. PURPOSE: To test the hypothesis that the Oswestry Disability Index (ODI) score, the walking distance during the 6MWT (6MWD) and gait quality (spatiotemporal parameters and gait asymmetry) will improve postoperatively and achieve normal values; changes in gait parameters correlate with changes in ODI score; and patients' gait quality will diminish during the 6MWT reflected by changes in gait parameters during the 6MWT...
