BACKGROUND CONTEXT: The aim of spinal deformity correction is to restore the spine's functional alignment by balancing it in both the sagittal and coronal planes. Regardless of posture, the ideal coronal profile is straight, and therefore readily assessable. PURPOSE: This study compares two radiological methods to determine which better predicts postoperative standing coronal balance. STUDY DESIGN/SETTING: We conducted a single-centre, radiographic comparative study between 2011 and 2015...

INTRODUCTION: The correct positioning of spinal cord stimulator leads is assessed radiographically during their percutaneous implantation for trial stimulation. Usually the C-arm is repositioned several times to allow imaging in different planes, which may extend the total duration of surgery. The study aimed to evaluate whether the concurrent intraoperative use of two C-arms could safely reduce the duration of surgery. MATERIALS: This retrospective study included cases of percutaneous implantation of an SCS lead for trial neurostimulation between 2006 and 2011...

OBJECT: The optimal timing for surgery for patients with spinal cord injury without radiographic evidence of trauma (SCIWORET) remains unclear. This is especially true in the elderly, because most studies are done with younger patients to avoid age-related comorbidities. We therefore aimed to compare the efficacy of early (less than 24 hours post-injury) versus late (more than 24 hours post-injury) surgery in patients with SCIWORET aged 65 years or older. METHODS: We identified patients aged 65 years or older who underwent surgery for SCIWORET between January 1995 and February 2016...

Lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) is a minimally-invasive approach to anterior spinal column fusion, deformity correction and indirect decompression of the lumbar spine. A rarely reported possible complication of the procedure is endplate fracture which has the potential for nerve root compression. Here we present a case of endplate fracture and nerve compression after stand-alone LLIF, its diagnosis, and its subsequent successful treatment with transforaminal endoscopic spine surgery. The case highlights the possible role for minimally invasive endoscopic surgery as a rescue procedure after fusion complication...

Blood management strategies are integral to successful outcomes in many types of orthopaedic surgery. These strategies minimize blood loss and transfusion requirements, ultimately decreasing complications, improving outcomes, and potentially eliminating risks associated with allogeneic transfusion. Practices to achieve these goals include preoperative evaluation and optimization of hemoglobin, the use of pharmacologic agents or anesthetic methods, intraoperative techniques to improve hemostasis and cell salvage, and the use of predonated autologous blood...

Patients with cancer are frequently affected by spinal metastases. Treatment is palliative, with the principle goals of pain relief, preservation of neurologic function, and improvement in quality of life. In the past decade, we have witnessed a dramatic change in the treatment paradigms due to the development of improved surgical strategies and systemic and radiation therapy. The most important change to these paradigms has been the integration of spinal stereotactic radiosurgery (SSRS), allowing delivery of tumoricidal radiation doses with sparing of nearby organs at risk...

RATIONALE: Solitary eosinophilic granuloma (EG), the most benign, common form of Langerhans cell histiocytosis, has a self-limiting process and is associated with a good prognosis. Immobilization is recommended as the first treatment strategy for solitary EG, although the treatment protocols are still controversial. Radiotherapy and surgery are secondary treatment choices. Lesions of the upper cervical spine react differently to treatment because of their specific anatomical and motor features...
