Lumbar interbody spacers are widely used in lumbar spinal fusion. The goal of this study is to analyze the biomechanics of a lumbar interbody spacer (Clydesdale Spinal System, Medtronic Sofamor Danek,...
Hydatid disease is a parasitic infection caused by Echinococcus granulosus. Although the liver and lung are the most common sites of hydatid disease, it can also be seen in other organs due to migrati...
Lumbar interbody fusion (LIF) is a treatment option for patients with degenerative disc disease (DDD). However, the effects of the most common LIF procedures-posterior LIF, transforaminal LIF, and ant...
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a common cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Past literature has demonstrated that patients with COPD are at an increased risk of post-operative...
The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical efficacy between percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) versus posterior open lumbar microdiscectomy (OLMD) for the treatment of symptoma...
The first technique described for interbody fusion was the anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF).(20) For this technique, the intervertebral disc is accessed through a retroperitoneal or...
The purpose of this study is to compare outcomes of patients with degenerative disc disease undergo lumbar spinal fusion with Stryker's Tritanium® Posterior Lumbar Cage or the UniLIF PEEK...
The purpose of this study is to compare outcomes of (i) surgical treatment with posterior dynamic stabilization and (ii) surgical treatment with internal fixation and fusion in patients w...
The purpose of this study is - to evaluate the effectiveness of MAST techniques for anterior/lateral and posterior approaches in patients with spondylolisthesis (≥ grade I). ...
The authors aimed to compare the clinical efficacy and safety of CaO-SiO2-P2O5-B2O3 glass ceramics with PEEK cage that is widely used for posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) surgery i...
Sudden liver failure in the presence of underlying compensated chronic LIVER DISEASE (e.g., LIVER CIRRHOSIS; HEPATITIS; and liver injury and failure) due to a precipitating acute hepatic insult.
A compression of ILIAC VEIN that results in a decreased flow in the vein and in the left LOWER EXTREMITY due to a vascular malformation. It may result in left leg EDEMA, pain, iliofemoral DEEP VENOUS THROMBOSIS and POSTTHROMBOTIC SYNDROME. Compression of the left common ILIAC VEIN by the right common ILIAC ARTERY against the underlying fifth LUMBAR VERTEBRA is the typical underlying malformation.
Final stage of a liver disease when the liver failure is irreversible and LIVER TRANSPLANTATION is needed.
Fluid accumulation in the outer layer of the MACULA LUTEA that results from intraocular or systemic insults. It may develop in a diffuse pattern where the macula appears thickened or it may acquire the characteristic petaloid appearance referred to as cystoid macular edema. Although macular edema may be associated with various underlying conditions, it is most commonly seen following intraocular surgery, venous occlusive disease, DIABETIC RETINOPATHY, and posterior segment inflammatory disease.

Tapping of the subarachnoid space in the lumbar region, usually between the third and fourth lumbar vertebrae.
Hepatology is the study of liver, gallbladder, biliary tree, and pancreas, and diseases associated with them. This includes viral hepatitis, alcohol damage, cirrhosis and cancer. As modern lifestyles change, with alcoholism and cancer becoming more promi...
