PURPOSE: This study aimed to investigate the treatment effects of low-intensity pulsed ultrasound (LIPUS) on progressive-stage spondylolysis. Spondylolysis is a stress fracture of the pars interarticularis. Based on the results of computed tomography, spondylolysis was classified into three categories: early, progressive, and terminal. Bone healing was prolonged or not obtained in progressive-stage spondylolysis. The progression of spondylolysis to nonunion has been associated with an increased incidence of spondylolisthesis...

Presently, lumbar spondylolisthesis did not have the indication of direct repair surgery because of the difficulty to reduce the slippage. In this report, we presented a case and described a minimally invasive direct repair surgery to reduce and repair the pars interarticularis defects of lumbar spondylolisthesis. First, curettage and removal of the synovium of the pars interarticularis and decompression of nerve root are conducted. Next, cancellous bone is harvested from the iliac crest. And then the Percutaneous Pedicle Screws are inserted bilaterally...

BACKGROUND: Stress injuries (stress fractures and stress reactions) of the lumbosacral region are one of the causes of sports-related lower back pain in young individuals. These injuries can be detected by bone marrow edema lesion on MRI. However, little is known about the prevalence and clinical features of early stage lumbosacral stress injuries. This study aimed to evaluate the epidemiology of lumbosacral stress injuries. METHODS: A total of 312 patients (under 18 years of age) who complained of sports-related lower back pain that had lasted for ≥7 days underwent magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans...

BACKGROUND: Upper lumbar disc herniations comprise only 1%-2% of all lumbar disc herniations. Patients exhibit nonspecific signs and symptoms in comparison to predictable radiculopathies, as seen in lower lumbar disc herniations. The unique anatomic characteristics of the upper lumbar spine present several challenges for safe and effective surgical treatment of disc herniations. The authors review the anatomy of the upper lumbar spine, describe a novel approach to upper lumbar disc herniations, and present 3 cases with a focus on clinical outcome and technical pearls...

The authors report on an 81-year-old woman with a pathologic hangman's fracture secondary to a complex arteriovenous fistula (AVF). The patient presented with severe, unremitting neck pain and was found to have fractures bilaterally through the pars interarticularis of C-2 with significant anterior subluxation of C-2 over C-3 along with widening of the left transverse foramen. Due to an abnormally appearing left vertebral artery (VA) on CT angiography, the patient underwent conventional angiography, which revealed a complex AVF stemming from the left VA at the level of C-2 with dilated posterior cervical veins and a large venous varix...

Bertolotti's syndrome (BS) must be considered as a differential diagnosis in a young patient presenting with low back pain (LBP). We present a case of a 26-year-old male complaining of mild chronic LBP for six years, radiating to his left thigh for the past six months. He has been taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) with skeletal muscle relaxants for pain relief. The X-ray and computed tomography (CT) imagings showed congenital enlargement of the left transverse process of the fifth lumbar (L5) vertebra forming pseudo-articulation with the sacrum and unilateral pars interarticularis defect at the L4 level on the left side, respectively...

En bloc resection of tumors involving the spinal column is technically challenging and is associated with high morbidity to the patient due to the proximity of critical neurological and vascular structures and the destabilizing nature of this surgery. Nevertheless, evidence has shown improved progression-free survival with en bloc resection for certain low-grade malignant and aggressive benign musculoskeletal tumors. To avoid the morbidity of en bloc spondylectomy in patients with tumors localized to the lateral and posterolateral spinal column, the authors have found that the goals of surgery can be accomplished through a contralateral osteotomy of the pedicle and posterolateral elements for en bloc resection (COPPER)...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective study. PURPOSE: Cortical bone trajectory (CBT), a more medial-to-lateral and shorter path than the traditional one for spinal fusion, is thought to be effective for severely degenerated vertebrae because screws are primarily stabilized at the posterior elements. We evaluated the efficacy of this approach through in vivo insertional torque measurement. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE: There has been only one prior in vivo study on CBT insertional torque...

Lumbar disc herniation arises when the annulus fibrosus of the vertebral disc fails, thus allowing displacement of the nucleus pulposus and other tissue. The term far lateral is used variably in the literature and usually refers to an extraforaminal displacement in the peridiscal zone peripheral to the sagittal plane of the most lateral part of the pedicle at the same level. Non-surgical treatments of far lateral disc herniation include physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, and corticosteroid injections...

OBJECTIVE: Large schwannomas with intradural and extradural extensions are often challenging surgical lesions. A variety of approaches, usually requiring large exposures, removal of facets and pars interarticularis, and spinal stabilization, have been described. The aim of this study is to describe the "dual approach," a less invasive technique for the excision of these lesions. METHODS: A large intradural and extradural schwannoma with paraspinal extension (Eden type II) was removed by a unilateral approach-midline, pars and facet sparing and no supplemental instrumentation...

PURPOSE: To determine the accuracy and short-term efficacy of fluoroscopy-guided steroid/anesthetic injections for symptomatic pars interarticularis (pars) defects. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Following IRB approval, all fluoroscopically guided pars injections from a single institution (6/2010 to 3/2016) were retrospectively and independently reviewed by two MSK radiologists. The radiologists evaluated the fluoroscopic images to determine if all of the pars injections associated with each procedure were intra-pars (n = 57 procedures; 106 pars injections), peri-pars (n = 3 procedures; three pars injected), or a combination of intra-pars and peri-pars (n = 6 procedures; 12 pars injected)...

BACKGROUND: Acute complex C2 vertebral body fracture specifically does not involve the odontoid process or C2 pars interarticularis. External stabilization can be effective but may prolong healing and increase morbidity. Many traditional surgical techniques can achieve internal stabilization at the expense of normal cervical motion. We describe direct surgical C2 pedicle screw fixation as an option for managing acute complex C2 vertebral body fracture. CASE DESCRIPTION: Three patients were treated with direct pedicle screw fixation of acute traumatic complex C2 vertebral body fractures...
