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.

The sacroiliac joint has been implicated as a source of chronic low back pain in 15% to 30% of patients. When nonsurgical approaches fail, sacroiliac joint fusion may be recommended. Advances in intra...
Sacroiliac (SI) joint pain has become a recognized factor in low back pain. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of a minimally invasive surgical SI joint fusion procedure on the in...
To investigate clinical efficacy of unstable pelvic fractures in the treatment with percutaneous sacroiliac screws and sacroiliac joint anterior plate fixation.
The sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is an important and significant cause of low back pain. We sought to quantify the burden of disease attributable to the SIJ.
[Purpose] We investigated the effects of individual strengthening exercises for subdivisions of the gluteus medius in a patient with sacroiliac joint pain. [Subject] A 32 year-old female who complai...
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, ...

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.
