OBJECTIVE: To observe the changes in pelvic balance after posterior reduction of balanced L5-S1 Ⅲ-grade isthmic spondylolisthesis in adults. METHODS: A total of 18 adult patients with balanced L5-S1 Ⅲ-grade isthmic spondylolisthesis were retrospectively studied after successful treatment by posterior decompression, reduction and L5-S1 interbody fusion in Department of Orthopedic Surgery, the First Affiliated Hospital of Soochow University from October 2009 to October 2014...

General principles of physical medicine and rehabilitation of rheumatic diseases are described. In knee and hip osteoarthritis it is important to protect full extension and in evolutive phase treat with drugs, unloading and physical therapy. Rest and ice are efficacious in active rheumatoid arthritis and in chronic phase all procedures and exercises are recommended with respect to pain threshold. Physical therapy for spondy larthropathies is directed to maintenance range of motion exercise for spine and breathing exercises...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate the relationship in patients with spondylarthropathies (SpA) between the clinical features of the disease and quantitative flow cytometric expression of HLA-B27 by CD3 gating. METHODS: We performed quantitative analysis of HLA-B27 antigen by flow cytometry using CD3 gating in 61 patients with seronegative and HLA-B27 positive SpA. The patients included 29 with ankylosing spondy-litis (AS), 29 with undifferentiated spondylarthropathy (uSpA), and 3 with reactive arthritis (ReA)...

One hundred twenty-four patients with degenerative lumbar stenosis underwent decompression with fusion (32 patients) and without fusion (92 patients) during a 30-month period between 1986 and 1988. Patient-reported satisfaction at a mean follow-up period of 5.8 years (range 4.6-6.8 years) revealed a 79% good or fair outcome and a 21% poor outcome (26 patients). Seven patients (6%) developed lumbar instability, three patients (2%) developed new stenosis at an adjacent unoperated level, and three patients (2%) developed a new disc herniation between 2 and 5 years after surgery...

Radiographic instability seemingly enjoys the status of a well-defined clinical syndrome. The concept is widely used, and specific treatments, usually spinal fusion, are routinely performed based on the diagnosis. The minimum standards necessary to establish radiographic instability as a legitimate clinical syndrome have not been established, however. The primary purpose of this study was to determine if treatment involving bracing, exercise, and education controlling either flexion or extension postures, would result in a distinctive pattern of favorable or unfavorable results, depending on the type of radiographic instability (retrodisplacement or spondylolisthesis)...
