Sacroiliac joint vacuum phenomenon-underreported finding.
Summary of "Sacroiliac joint vacuum phenomenon-underreported finding."
Vacuum phenomenon (VP) is commonly found in sacroiliac joints, and its significance in patients with back pain has been debated. We investigated the prevalence of sacroiliac joint vacuum phenomenon (SJVP) and the rate at which it is reported on abdominopelvic and lumbosacral spine computed tomography (CT) images by body imagers and neuroradiologists. We hypothesized that it would be more common than not and that neuroradiologists would identify it more frequently than body imagers and on spine images more commonly than abdominopelvic studies due to the search for the source of back pain in the former.

Vacuum phenomenon (VP) is an anatomical entity of potential confusion in the diagnosis and evaluation of joint pathology. Observation of this phenomenon has been demonstrated on basic radiographs, com...
Anterior sacroiliac joint plate fixation for unstable pelvic ring fractures avoids soft tissue problems in the buttocks; however, the lumbosacral nerves lie in close proximity to the sacroiliac joint...
Objective To evaluate the presence of spinal inflammation with and without sacroiliac joint (SIJ) inflammation on MRI in patients with active non-radiographic axial spondyloarthritis (nr-axSpA) and co...
To explore whether morphological features of fat infiltration (FI) on sacroiliac joint (SIJ) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contribute to diagnostic utility in 2 inception cohorts of patients with n...
Brucellosis is a protean disease and should be excluded in any febrile child with a constellation of symptoms such as fever, malaise, sweating, arthralgia, and joint swelling in endemic areas. Skeleta...
The purpose of this study is to examine the effects of manipulation on sacroiliac joint motion using a Polhemus motion capture system.
This study is designed to evaluate the efficacy and safety of guide-free sacroiliac joint (SIJ) injection in refractory sacroiliac pain due to spondyloarthropathies.
This study seeks to determine if the correction of a sacroiliac lesion can produce a functional change in cervical spine. Reduction of a sacroiliac joint lesion may alter cervical spine fu...
Trial will enroll qualified subjects at a 2:1 ration to receive radiofrequency ablation or sham. At six weeks follow up they will be unblinded; sham subjects will then be given option to r...
In order to determine whether L4 and L5 primary dorsal rami and S1-3 lateral branch radiofrequency denervation is effective for sacroiliac (SI) joint pain, we are conducting a randomized,...
Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
The immovable joint formed by the lateral surfaces of the SACRUM and ILIUM.
Amputation of a lower limb through the sacroiliac joint.
Aspiration of the contents of the uterus with a vacuum curette.
A chronic inflammatory condition affecting the axial joints, such as the SACROILIAC JOINT and other intervertebral or costovertebral joints. It occurs predominantly in young males and is characterized by pain and stiffness of joints (ANKYLOSIS) with inflammation at tendon insertions.
Inflammation of the SACROILIAC JOINT. It is characterized by lower back pain, especially upon walking, fever, UVEITIS; PSORIASIS; and decreased range of motion. Many factors are associated with and cause sacroiliitis including infection; injury to spine, lower back, and pelvis; DEGENERATIVE ARTHRITIS; and pregnancy.
