Background: Low back pain is a primary health care utilization driver in the US population. Health care evaluation visits for low back pain are as common as medical evaluation for the common cold. Low back pain is the most common reason for reductions in activities of daily living and work activity in the general population. Although these statistics are compelling, in the military population, there is arguably a significantly greater economic impact on the military population, as the cost to train, retain, and deploy a service member is a tremendous cost...

Pediatric spinal trauma can present a surgeon with difficult management decisions given the rarity of these cases, pediatric anatomy, and a growing spine. The need to stabilize a traumatically unstable pediatric spine can be an operative challenge given the lack of instrumentation available. The authors present a surgical technique and an illustrative case that may offer a novel, less disruptive method of stabilization. A 2-year-old girl presented after an assault with an L1-2 fracture subluxation with lateral listhesis and fractured jumped facets exhibited on CT scans...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Lumbar spine surgeries require adequate exposure to visualize key structures and limited exposure can make surgery more technically difficult, thus increasing the potential for complications. Body mass index and body mass distribution have been shown to be associated with worse surgical outcomes. PURPOSE: This study aims to further previous investigations in elucidating the predictive nature of body mass distribution with peri- and post-operative complications in lumbar surgery...

INTRODUCTION: Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is one of the most frequent neurosurgical affections. It has been reported that the anatomical shape of the spinal canal (oval, round, trefoil) predicts outcome of bilateral decompression performed in an undercutting technique via a unilateral laminotomy in monosegmental LSS. The poorest results were observed in a trefoild spinal canal, leading to the proposal of using a bilateral instead of a unilateral laminotomy. We have been routinely performing a unilateral microsurgical approach with undercutting to decompress both sides of the spinal canal for more than a decade...

OBJECTIVE Split laminotomy is a technique for accessing the spinal canal from the posterior midline that minimizes muscle dissection and bone removal. Benefits of this approach in minimizing postoperative pain and muscle atrophy in the adult population have been reported, but pediatric data are limited. Herein, the authors evaluate the benefits of the split laminotomy technique in pediatric patients. METHODS Data obtained in patients who underwent posterior spine surgery at Children's Hospital of Wisconsin for an intradural midline pathology between April 2008 and June 2015 were reviewed retrospectively...

BACKGROUND: Spinal cord stimulation (SCS) is a common intervention for managing intractable pain. Generally, leads are implanted in a minimally invasive procedure with verbal feedback regarding the location and nature of generated paresthesias by active stimulation; in this way their optimal location can be confirmed. However, lead placement under general anesthesia can have additional benefits. OBJECTIVE: To investigate the outcomes of awake vs asleep lead placement procedures...

OBJECTIVE: Preserving the ligamentum flavum (LF) during lumbar spine surgery can help to limit the extent of postoperative epidural fibrosis (EF), which is a potential cause of persistent leg pain. We present a retrospective analysis of microdiscectomy with preservation of the LF to evaluate the effects of the two LF mobilizing techniques (reflecting inferiorly or medially vs. removing completely) on EF and clinical outcomes. METHODS: Microdiscectomy was performed through a unilateral laminotomy in 93 patients (52 male, 41 female; mean age, 46 years; range, 25-65 years) with L3-L4 (n = 3), L4-L5 (n = 40), and L5-S1 (n = 50) lumbar disc herniation...

RATIONALE: Adult spinal epidermoid cyst (SEC) is a rare tumor. Lumbar laminectomy and tumor removal was a routine surgical procedure for adult spinal epidermoid cyst according to the literature, but postoperative lumbar instability and intractable low back pain may occur. In this study, we presented a brief report of an adult lumbar epidermoid cyst and introduced another surgical approach. PATIENT CONCERNS: This 28-year-old woman has been complaining of the severe right buttock pain and right thigh radiating pain for half a year...

A previously healthy 13-year-old girl presented with a 9-day history of acute onset severe neck pain associated with limited range of movement. Medical evaluation at day 2 was suggestive of muscle contracture, and she was discharged home with diazepam, antiinflammatory agents, and rest; however, she returned because of progressive clinical worsening with left arm distal paresthesia and paralysis since day 3. There was no history of trauma or other systemic complaints, and her familial medical history was unremarkable...

We report a case of a 41 years old patient complaining of chronic dorsalgia. MRI showed a well defined intradural extramedular dumbbell-shaped lesion, associated to a left paravertebral tumor at D5-D6 level. The tumor was embolizated prior to surgery. Following she underwent a D4-D6 laminotomy, left D5-D6 costotransversectomy and resection of the intracanal extradural part of the lesion with section of the left D5 nerve. Posteriorly, complete resection of the extracanal portion of the tumor was performed by a postero-lateral approach...

Oedema refers to the excessive accumulation of fluid within intercellular tissues as a result of disequilibrium between the capillary hydrostatic and oncotic pressure gradients. Lumbar disc herniation (LDH) commonly causes lower back pain and radicular leg pain. We report a 57-year-old female who presented to the neurosurgery clinic of the Bam University of Medical Sciences, Bam, Iran, in 2015 with pain and pitting oedema in the bilateral lower extremities. Magnetic resonance imaging confirmed a diagnosis of LDH of the L3-L4 and L4-L5 vertebrae...

Filum terminale lipoma (FTL) causes various spinal symptoms known as tethered cord syndrome. The treatment for FTL is surgical untethering by sectioning the FTL, which can prevent symptom progression and often results in improvement of symptoms. This report describes a minimally invasive surgical strategy that we have introduced for FTL sectioning. The pediatric patients with FTL since 2007 were treated using this minimally invasive surgical strategy, which we refer to as an interlaminar approach (ILA). In summary, the surgical technique involves: minimal skin incision to expose the unilateral ligamentum flavum in the lower lumbar region; ligamentum flavum incision to expose the dural sac, and dural incision followed by identification and sectioning of the filum...

OBJECTIVE: The impact of obesity on spine surgery has been studied extensively, but only a few investigations have been focused on minimally invasive spinal fusion techniques and complication rates in normal-weight, preobese, or obese patients. Obesity was found to be a risk factor for intraoperative complications. Published data tend to favor minimal access surgery techniques (MAST) for obese patients. In a prospective study, we assessed the perioperative and postoperative complications of MAST in a large population of 187 patients...
