The degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis is one of the most commonly treated spinal disorders in older adults; despite its increasing frequency, it is not yet clear what the most effective therapy might be. The aim of this study is to investigate the very long term results of a homogenized cohort of patients suffering from lumbar spinal stenosis: the first subset of patients operated on with laminectomy and the second subset of patients was also advised to undergo laminectomy but never operated on.

Degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis is a spinal disorder characterized by degeneration with dysfunction of the intervertebral discs. It typically occurs in motion segments and is prevalent in the el...
In degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis (DLSS) variability of symptoms according to the severity of stenosis is not well understood. Therefore, another factor that impacts functional outcomes of DLSS p...
As the complicated and three-dimensional deformity, degenerative spinal deformity is common in middle-aged and elderly patients, which often accompanies with severe lumbar spinal stenosis and correspo...
Lumbar stenosis is a common degenerative spinal disease of the lumbar spine. The aim of our observational prospective study is to evaluate the long-term outcome and reoperation rate (RR) after microsu...
Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) can impair blood flow to the spinal nerves giving rise to neurogenic claudication and limited walking ability. Reducing lumbar lordosis can increases the volume of the spi...
The NORDSTEN- OS(Observational study) aim to study the natural course in patients with mild to moderate symptomatic lumbar spinal stenosis with and without degenerative spondylolisthesis. ...
The main method of treating degenerative stenosis of the lumbar spine is to perform decompression and fusion. Traditionally, this surgery is performed through median lumbar access. Minimal...
This study was started from Oct. 2015. This study aimed to evaluate the outcome of bracing following transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) in patients with degenerative lumbar spin...
The aim of this Phase II trial is to evaluate safety and efficacy of Hyalospine in patients undergoing lumbar laminectomy or laminotomy for degenerative spinal stenosis or disk herniation....
This is a pivotal Randomized Clinical trial to provide clinical data to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the Pedicle Lengthening Osteotomy Procedure with implantation of the Alt...
Outgrowth of immature bony processes or bone spurs (OSTEOPHYTE) from the VERTEBRAE, reflecting the presence of degenerative disease and calcification. It commonly occurs in cervical and lumbar SPONDYLOSIS.
Tapping of the subarachnoid space in the lumbar region, usually between the third and fourth lumbar vertebrae.
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Narrowing of the spinal canal.
Endoscopic surgical procedures performed with visualization via video transmission. When real-time video is combined interactively with prior CT scans or MRI images, this is called image-guided surgery (see SURGERY, COMPUTER-ASSISTED).
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
Spinal Cord Disorders
The spinal cord is a bundle of nerves that runs down the middle of the back which carry signals back and forth between the body and brain. It is protected by vertebrae, which are the bone disks that make up the spine. An accident that damages the verte...
