Sang-Yeol Lee, Se-Yeon Park
The purpose of this study was to identify the instability of the trunk and the pelvis of subjects who were standing on differently angled ramps under conditions in which the ramps were crossed. Changes in the trunk and the pelvis while each subject was standing on one leg in the direction of the cross ramps at four angles (0°, 5°, 10°, and 15°) were measured. To identify instability, the trunk inclination, trunk imbalance, pelvic position, pelvic rotation, and pelvic torsion of 20 healthy male subjects were measured...

Pelvic inflammatory disease is an infectious disease. At present, Western medicine is mainly treated with antibiotics. However, the situation of antibiotics abuse is so grim that the potential risks such as the imbalance of bacteria, the resistance of bacteria, the production of super bacteria and the increase of adverse reactions are becoming more and more serious. Therefore, it is urgent to find a way to supplement or substitute antibiotics for the treatment of this disease. Traditional Chinese medicine treatment of the disease is effective and has its unique advantages...

BACKGROUND: Thoracolumbar junction (TLJ) is the transitional area between the lower thoracic spine and the upper lumbar spine. Vertebral compression fractures and proximal junctional kyphosis following spine surgery often occur in this area. Therefore, the study of development and mechanisms of thoracolumbar junctional degeneration is important for planning surgical management. This study aimed to review radiological parameters of thoracolumbar junctional degenerative kyphosis (TLJDK) in patients with lumbar degenerative kyphosis and to analyze compensatory mechanisms of sagittal balance...

Endometriosis is one of the most common gynaecologic diseases in women of reproductive age. It is characterized by the presence of endometrial tissue outside the uterine cavity. The women affected suffer from pelvic pain and infertility. The complex etiology is still unclear and it is based on three main theories: retrograde menstruation, coelomic metaplasia, and induction theory. Genetics and epigenetics also play a role in the development of endometriosis. Recent studies have put the attention on the role of oxidative stress, defined as an imbalance between reactive oxygen species (ROS) and antioxidants, which may be implicated in the pathophysiology of endometriosis causing a general inflammatory response in the peritoneal cavity...

BACKGROUND: Scoliosis X-rays are the gold standard for assessing preoperative lumbar lordosis; however, particularly for flexible lumbar deformities, it is difficult to predict from these images the extent of correction required, as standing radiographs cannot predict the thoracolumbar alignment after intraoperative positioning. OBJECTIVE: To determine the utility of preoperative MRI in surgical planning for patients with flexible sagittal imbalance. METHODS: We identified 138 patients with sagittal imbalance...

OBJECTIVE: Few studies have concentrated on the sagittal alignment of lumbar disc herniation (LDH), especially the parameters of the pelvis, and controversy exists about whether pelvic morphology is involved in the pathogenesis of LDH. The present study analyzed the characteristics of the sagittal alignment in young Chinese LDH patients and explored the impact of pelvic morphology on the pathogenesis of LDH. METHODS: A retrospective analysis was conducted on 100 young patients with LDH (69 men and 31 women, aged 18-35 years), and the clinical and imaging findings met the criteria for the diagnosis of LDH...

OBJECTIVES: Spinopelvic alignment has been associated with improved quality of life in patients with vertebral deformities, and it helps to compensate for imbalances in gait. Although surgical treatment of scoliosis in patients with neuromuscular spinal deformities promotes correction of coronal scoliotic deformities, it remains poorly established whether this results in large changes in sagittal balance parameters in this specific population. The objective of this study is to compare these parameters before and after the current procedure under the hypothesis is that there is no significant modification...

BACKGROUND: Lumbar degenerative kyphosis (LDK) is characterized by sagittal imbalance resulting from degenerative loss of lumbar lordosis. The ability of transcutaneous neuromuscular electrical stimulation (NMES) to activate deep lumbar stabilizing muscles has been demonstrated. OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of transcutaneous NMES applied to optimal points on the lower abdomen and lumbar paraspinal region on gait problems in patients with lumbar degenerative kyphosis (LDK)...

BACKGROUND: Pelvic tilt (PT) is a compensatory mechanism for adult spinal deformity patients to mitigate sagittal imbalance. The association between preop PT and postop clinical and radiographic outcomes has not been well studied in patients undergoing minimally invasive adult deformity surgery. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate clinical and radiographic outcomes in adult spinal deformity patients with high and low preoperative PT treated surgically using less invasive techniques...

Choriocarcinoma is an uncommon malignant neoplasm, which can be either gestational or nongestational in origin. Distinction of these subtypes has prognostic and therapeutic implications. Twenty-two tumors were genotyped using polymerase chain reaction amplification of 15 short tandem repeat loci and the amelogenin locus (XY determination). DNA patterns from tumor and maternal tissue, as well as villous tissue from any available prior or concurrent gestation, were compared, to determine gestational versus nongestational nature (containing vs...

OBJECTIVE As life expectancy continues to increase, primary degenerative sagittal imbalance (PDSI) is diagnosed in an increasing number of elderly people. Although corrective surgery for this sagittal deformity is becoming more popular, the effectiveness of the procedure remains unclear. The authors aimed to collate the available evidence on the effectiveness and complications of deformity-correction surgery in patients with PDSI. METHODS The authors carried out a meta-analysis of clinical studies regarding deformity correction in patients with PDSI...

Surgical correction of fixed thoracolumbar deformity is usually achieved by estimating the preoperatively planned correction angles during surgery and is therefore prone to inaccuracy. This is particularly problematic in biplanar deformities. To overcome these difficulties, 3D model for planning, preparation, and simulation of an asymmetric pedicle subtraction osteotomy (aPSO) was printed and used to realign coronal and sagittal balance in case of rigid degenerative kyphoscoliosis. A 59-year-old woman presented with severe back pain and spinal claudication and was diagnosed with a rigid kyphoscoliosis with multilevel spinal stenosis...

INTRODUCTION: Sagittal plane realignment is important to achieve desirable clinical outcomes after adult spinal deformity (ASD) surgery. This study evaluates the impact of minimally invasive (MIS) techniques on sagittal plane alignment and clinical outcomes in ASD patients. METHODS: A retrospective, multi-center review of ASD patients (age ≥18 years, and with one of the following: coronal Cobb ≥20°, sagittal vertical axis [SVA] >5 cm, and/or pelvic tilt >25°), MIS surgery, and four or more levels instrumented...
