OBJECTIVE: To compare the clinical effect between the lamina osteotomy and former vertebral plates regraft method and total laminectomy and interbody fusion method in treating single-segment lumbar degenerative disease. METHODS: The clinical data of 167 patients with single-segment lumbar degenerative disease underwent surgical treatment from January 2010 to December 2014 were retrospectively analyzed. There were 92 males and 75 females, aged from 45 to 75 years old with an average of (59...

OBJECTIVE: To determine the incidence of infection after instrumented lumbar spine surgery, the demographic and surgical variables associated with acute infection, and the influence of infection and debridement on the consolidation of spinal fusion. METHODS: After obtaining approval from the hospital ethics committee, an observational study was made on a prospective cohort of consecutive patients surgically treated by posterolateral lumbar spine arthrodesis (n = 139, 2005-2011)...

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...

Following lumbar fusion, adjacent segment degeneration has been frequently reported. Dynamic systems are believed to reduce main fusion drawbacks. We conducted a retrospective study on patients with degenerative lumbar disease treated with posterior dynamic stabilization with monoaxial hinged pedicular screws and lumbar decompression. VAS and ODI were used to compare clinical outcomes. As radiological outcomes, LL and SVA were used. 51 patients were included with an average follow-up of 24 months. 13 patients were revised because of postoperative radiculopathy (n=4), subcutaneous hematoma (n=2), L5 screw malposition (n=1) and adjacent segment disease (n=6)...

Background: The incidence of adjacent segment disease (ASD) after lumbar spine surgery is a condition that has become increasingly common as the rate of lumbar spine surgery continues to rise. Minimally invasive techniques continue to be refined and offer an opportunity to treat ASD with minimal tissue disruption, lower blood loss, a shorter hospital stay, and decreased morbidity. The aim of this report is to describe the various minimally invasive options for ASD with a comprehensive review of the existing literature...

Recombinant human bone morphogenic protein-2 (BMP-2) loaded absorbable collagen sponges (ACS) have been successfully used to enhance bone formation and to induce spinal fusion in humans. However, side effects, such as soft-tissue edema and inflammation, have been reported. NEMO binding domain peptide (NBD) inhibits activation of nuclear factor kappa-light-chain-enhancer of activated B cells (NF-κB), a central regulator of immune response. In this study, we investigated NBD's potential to reduce BMP-2-induced soft-tissue inflammation without affecting BMP-2-mediated spinal fusion in rat...

Lumbar discography (LD) is used to guide surgical decision making in patients with degenerative disc disease (DDD). Its safety and diagnostic accuracy are under contention. This study evaluates LD's efficacy within the workers' compensation (WC) population. Multivariate logistic regression analysis was used to determine the impact that undergoing LD before lumbar fusion for DDD had on return to work (RTW) rates among 1407 WC subjects. Discography was negatively associated with RTW status (p = .042; OR 0.76); 22...

Study Design: This was a retrospective, observational study. Objectives: We hypothesize that the expandable transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) cage achieves satisfactory clinical outcomes while allowing for safe placement, improvement, and maintenance of foraminal and disc dimensions at 24 months postsurgery with low risk of cage migration, subsidence, and nerve injury. Methods: TLIF with expandable cages was performed in 54 patients (62 levels) over a 24-month-period using open midline or minimally invasive surgery techniques with placement of Globus Caliber, Rise, or Altera expandable cages...

PURPOSE: To compare the efficacy and safety of two different surgical incisions for minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MIS-TLIF) in the management of two-level degenerative lumbar diseases. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective study of 129 patients, who underwent two-level MIS-TLIF for degenerative lumbar diseases from September 2014 to December 2015. Sixty-two patients underwent MIS-TLIF with unilateral long decompression incision (group A) and 67 patients underwent MIS-TLIF with bilateral short decompression incision (group B)...

OBJECTIVE: Cervical myelopathy patients sometimes experience concurrent nonspecific moderate to severe low back pain (msLBP). However, postoperative changes in msLBP after cervical myelopathy surgery have rarely been reported. Awareness of postoperative changes in msLBP may be helpful in consultation. Therefore, the objective of this study was to examine postoperative changes in msLBP. METHODS: Patients with cervical myelopathy and msLBP (a visual analog pain score ≥ 5/10) were prospectively reviewed, and 53 patients (M:F, 28:25; mean age, 63...

PURPOSE: The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the direct lateral approach to the lumbar spine in the treatment of painful isthmic spondylolisthesis in adults. METHODS: Twenty-one patients affected by isthmic spondylolisthesis and treated with extreme lateral interbody fusion and posterior percutaneous pedicle screw fixation were enrolled. All included patients were clinically evaluated with Oswestry Disability Index, SF36 and Visual Scale Anatomy (VAS) for back pain at 1, 3 months and at 1 year...

BACKGROUND: Oblique lateral interbody fusion (OLIF) surgery provides a convenient and minimal access to the lesion disc with few complications, however, the left lumbar sympathetic trunk (LST) lies in the surgical field with an certain incidence of injury. The aim of this study was to describe the anatomical structures of the left LST at risk for injury during oblique lateral interbody fusion at different lumbar segment levels based on radiological evaluations. METHODS: 44 healthy young people (22 males and 22 females) were recruited and routine lumbar MR radiograph were performed...

OBJECTIVE High rates of perioperative complications are associated with deformity correction in neuromuscular scoliosis. The current study aimed to evaluate complications associated with surgical correction of neuromuscular scoliosis and to characterize potential risk factors. METHODS Data were retrospectively collected from a single-center cohort of 102 consecutive patients who underwent spinal fusions for neuromuscular scoliosis between January 2008 and December 2016 and who had a minimum of 6 months of follow-up...

PURPOSE: To evaluate the efficacy of minimally invasive spinal fusion in comparison to open fusion for adult lumbar spondylolisthesis or spondylosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: The present study was conducted as a meta-analysis of all estimates from studies that were selected after comprehensive literature search by two independent reviewers. RESULTS: Of 745 articles, nine prospective cohort studies were identifed. The quality of evidence was downgraded because of study design, inconsistency, imprecision, and publication bias...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical treatment of AIS aims to correct the coronal and sagittal alignment of the spine. The global alignment of the spine may be normalized through reciprocal changes between the fused spine and adjacent segments. We propose a new classification system describing the specific sagittal patterns induced by AIS to define reproducible guidelines for the surgical strategy. METHODS: We analyzed 100 consecutive AIS patients aged between 12 and 18 years candidate for spinal fusion...

RATIONALE: Pituitary apoplexy (PA) is a syndrome caused by acute hemorrhage or infarction of the pituitary gland, generally within a pituitary adenoma. PA following spinal surgery is a very rare complication and may be difficult to diagnose. However, early diagnosis of PA is essential for the timely treatment of pan-hypopituitarism and prevention of severe neurologic complications. PATIENT CONCERNS: A 73-year-old man had a posterior lumbar fusion surgery over a period of 8 hours on prone position...
