Background Bertolotti syndrome is characterized by an abnormal enlargement of the transverse process of the most caudal lumbar vertebra. Most of the time it is asymptomatic, but when it is symptomatic it is associated with low back pain, radiating leg pain, or both. There is no consensus regarding management of this pathology. Open to minimal invasive tubular resection techniques are described in the literature, but a full endoscopic resection technique has not yet been described. Endoscopic technique is a less invasive target-oriented iliolumbar ligament preserving technique...

INTRODUCTION: C1 lateral mass (C1LM) screw is a common procedure in spine surgery. However, related studies are lacking in Asia. We aim to determine the safety of C1LM screw for the Chinese, Indians, and Malays. METHODS: Three-dimensional computed tomographies of 180 subjects (60 from each ethnic) were analyzed. The length and angulations of C1LM screw and the location of internal carotid artery (ICA) in relation to C1LM were assessed and classified according to the classification by Murakami et al...

Non-vitamin K antagonist oral anticoagulants (NOACs) have a favorable benefit-risk profile compared with vitamin K antagonists. However, the lack of specific reversal agents has made the management of some patients receiving long-term treatment with NOACs problematic in emergency situations such as major bleeding events or urgent procedures. Idarucizumab, a fully humanized Fab antibody fragment that binds specifically and with high affinity to dabigatran, was recently approved for use in adult patients treated with dabigatran when rapid reversal of its anticoagulant effect is required...

INTRODUCTION: Traditionally, surgical intervention for patients with a spinal deformity has been considered for cosmetic benefits, but surgical intervention can alter the lung physiology or volumes and in turn leads to increase in physical capacity and exercise tolerance. Therefore, we conducted this to determine whether a surgical correction would restore the lung physiology, physical capacity and exercise tolerance in patients with kyphoscoliosis. AIM: To evaluate the usage of six-minute walk test scores and modified Borg scores as tools/measures for exercise tolerance in patients with spinal deformity and to study the effects of surgical correction of spinal deformity on exercise tolerance with above parameters as the measures...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study of prospectively collected data. OBJECTIVE: To determine the effect of obesity (body mass Index > 30) on postoperative morbidity and mortality after elective posterior cervical fusion in adults. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: In those with spine disease, obesity has been shown to portend poorer general and disease-specific functional health status. The effect of obesity on outcomes after spine surgery, especially posterior cervical fusion, however, remains unclear...

STUDY DESIGN: Prospective analysis. OBJECTIVE: To quantify physical activity after lumbar surgery and identify spine-related variables associated with not meeting recommended activity thresholds. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: National guidelines recommend ≥150 minutes/week of moderate-intensity activity; however, only 52% of the general population meets this threshold. For patients not participating in exercise/sports, ≥1400 kcal/week of energy expenditure, including from walking, is another threshold...

STUDY DESIGN: We prospectively evaluated adjacent disc levels after anterior cervical discectomy and arthroplasty (ACDA) using kinematic magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and plain functional radiographs. OBJECTIVE: ACDA is an established treatment for degenerative cervical disc disease. The objective of this study was to evaluate the use of kinematic MRI for assessing the range of motion (ROM) before and after ACDA compared with plain functional radiographs and to evaluate adjacent degenerative disc disease (aDDD) at mid-term follow-up...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: The clinical application of recombinant bone morphogenetic protein in spinal surgery has been shown to be safe and effective. However, its use in minimally invasive spine surgery has been limited to anterior interbody fusion procedures. To date, no study has evaluated the feasibility of percutaneous posterolateral fusion in the spine utilizing recombinant bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2). PURPOSE: To evaluate the feasibility of percutaneous posterolateral fusion in the spine utilizing rhBMP-2...

STUDY DESIGN: This is a retrospective study analysis. OBJECTIVE: The purpose of our study was to evaluate the healing process of the ilium after being used as a bone graft donor site in the treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Iliac crest bone grafts have been proven to be the most reliable means for solid fusion in spine surgery. Nevertheless, few reports in the literature describe the ability of the iliac crest to regenerate...

PURPOSE: C2 fixation is a demanding procedure, particularly in patients with variants of C1-C2 anatomy. The inferior articular process (IAP) of the axis can be an alternative for screw placement. We report the results of a CT study of C2 IAP anatomy and we present the clinical experience of 28 patients operated with this technique. METHODS: Anatomical study: 50 CT angiographies of the vertebral arteries (VA) were used for this study and, therefore, 100 IAPs were considered...

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the feasibility and success rate of in-plane ultrasound-guided paravertebral block using laterally intercostal approach. METHODS: In the study, 27 patients undergoing elective thoracic surgery were selected to do paravertebral block preoperatively. The fifth intercostal space was scanned by ultrasound probe which was placed along the long axis of the rib and 8 cm lateral to the midline of the spine. The needle was advanced in increments aiming at the space between the internal and innermost intercostal muscles...

This study identifies the rate of pseudarthrosis following surgical debridement for deep lumbar spine surgical site infection and identify associated risk factors. Patients who underwent index lumbar fusion surgery from 2013 to 2014 were included if they met the following criteria: 1) age >18years, 2) had debridement of deep lumbar SSI, and had 3) lumbar spine AP, lateral and flexion/extension X-rays and computed tomography (CT) at 12months or greater postoperatively. Criteria for fusion included 1) solid posterolateral, facet, or disk space bridging bone, 2) no translational or angular motion on flexion/extension X-rays, and 3) intact posterior hardware without evidence of screw lucency or breakage...

BACKGROUND: Hybrid constructs have been widely used to surgically correct thoracic adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). To enhance the correction obtained with hybrid constructs, we perform concave rib head resection and convex costovertebral release as posterior release procedures. The objective of the study was to evaluate coronal and sagittal curve correction in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) treated with hybrid constructs combined with concave rib head resection and convex transverse process resection as posterior release procedures...

STUDY DESIGN: . Retrospective cohort study OBJECTIVE.: To evaluate hospital outcomes in dialysis dependent patients undergoing elective lumbar surgeries. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Due to their overall poor health status and concomitant comorbidity burden, spinal surgery in dialysis dependent patients represents a significant challenge to spine surgeons. Large studies evaluating their immediate post-operative outcomes in elective lumbar surgery are lacking. METHODS: Utilizing the National Inpatient Sample (NIS), an estimated 1,834 dialysis-dependent patients undergoing elective lumbar spine surgery for degenerative lumbar conditions were compared to an estimated 2,522,594 non-dialysis dependent patients undergoing the same procedures between 2002 and 2012...

BACKGROUND: Due to the uncommon nature of primary spinal epidural lymphomas (PSELs), there has been little research looking at prognostic indicators for the tumor. To our knowledge, this is the largest study to evaluate possible clinical and pathologic prognostic factors in PSEL patients. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed 130 cases of PSEL, including 36 Chinese patients and 94 published case reports from 1985 to 2015. Patient treatment regimens included surgery (S; n = 119), surgery followed by chemotherapy (S + CT; n = 25), surgery followed by radiotherapy (S + RT; n = 26), and surgery followed by chemotherapy and radiotherapy (S + CT + RT; n = 50)...
