Study Design: Secondary analysis of prospective, multicenter data. Objective: To evaluate impact of sagittal parameters on health-related quality of life (HRQoL) in adults with lumbosacral spondylolisthesis. Methods: Adults with unoperated lumbosacral spondylolisthesis were identified in the Spinal Deformity Study Group database. Pearson's correlations were calculated between SF-12 (Short Form-12)/Scoliosis Research Society-30 (SRS-30) scores and radiographic parameters (C7 sagittal vertical axis [SVA] deviation, T1 pelvic angle, pelvic tilt [PT], pelvic incidence, sacral slope, slip angle, Meyerding slip grade, Labelle classification)...

To classify facet joint cysts (FJC) which will assist in identification of patient groups to best fit with a particular intervention. Sagittal T2 -weighted magnetic resonance images (MRI) of these patients are used to measure cyst size, while axial T2 -weighted MRI are used to determine the percentage of the vertebral canal occupied by the cyst. The degree of spondylolisthesis is also measured through standing X-rays or sagittal MRI. The proposed grading system is as follows. Grade I includes cysts that occupy less than 25% of the canal diameter that usually present with unilateral radiculopathy...

BACKGROUND: Stand-alone anterior interbody fusion (STALIF) with poly-ether-ether-ketone (PEEK) cages could offer a treatment option in olisthesis cases. The fixation of the PEEK-cage at the L5/S1 inferior endplate with long divergent screws however might endanger neural sacral structures, especially the S1 nerve root. If shorter screws are used, the achieved bony purchase might not be sufficient to resist the pull out and shear forces at the lumbosacral junction. The aim of the present investigation was to evaluate the use of long screws in PEEK-cages for olisthesis cases at the L5/S1 segment and its neurological complications...

PURPOSE: The cross-sectional area and fat infiltration are accepted as standard parameters for quantitative and qualitative evaluation of muscle degeneration. However, they are time-consuming, which prevents them from being used in a clinical setting. The aim of this study was to analyze the relationship between lumbar muscle degeneration and spinal degenerative disorders, using lumbar indentation value (LIV) as quantitative and Goutallier classification as qualitative measures. METHODS: This is a retrospective analysis of kinematic magnetic resonance images (kMRI)...

INTRODUCTION: Surgical treatment of lumbar degenerative spondylolisthesis usually involves an interbody fusion in addition to a posterolateral fusion. However, the value of this procedure has not been established. METHODS: To answer this question we used Epistemonikos, the largest database of systematic reviews in health, which is maintained by screening multiple information sources, including MEDLINE, EMBASE, Cochrane, among others. We extracted data from the systematic reviews, reanalyzed data of primary studies, conducted a meta-analysis and generated a summary of findings table using the GRADE approach...

PURPOSE: In this paper, the authors propose classifying the epiphenomenon of spinal deformity in two different categories: structural deformity, when the main driver of the observed deformity is a fixed and stiff alteration of the spinal segments, and compensatory deformity, which includes cases where the observed deformity is due to focal abnormalities. This last category comprises, but is not limited to, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, disc herniation, infection or tumor, hip disease or neurological disease (such as Parkinson's disease)...
