Retrospective analysis of accuracy and positive predictive value of preoperative lumbar MRI grading after successful outcome following outpatient endoscopic decompression for lumbar foraminal and lateral recess stenosis.
The aim of this study was to analyze the accuracy and positive predictive value (PPV) of preoperative lumbar MRI grading for successful outcome after outpatient endoscopic decompression for lumbar for...
OBJECTIVEThe importance of global sagittal alignment is well known. Patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) generally tend to bend forward to relieve their neurological symptoms, i.e., they have a ...
This is a retrospective cohort study.
Implantable Motor Cortex Stimulation (iMCS) has been performed for over 25 years to treat various intractable pain syndromes. Its effectiveness shows to be highly variable and although various studies...
A single center study of clinical and radiological outcomes in a retrospective cohort of patients treated with Lumbar Interbody Fusion augmented with Prosidyan Fibergraft for 1 or 2 level ...
The Satellite™ Retrospective Analysis is an international, retrospective, multi-center, non-interventional post-marketing study designed to document and analyze existing data with the de...
The purpose of this retrospective data review is to evaluate the health economic drivers and complications of two surgical procedures: transsacral lumbar interbody fusion and transforamina...
Retrospective interventional case series study reporting preoperative clinical and anatomical factors associated with visual recovery 1 year after combined cataract and idiopathic epiretin...
The purpose of this study is to improve upon and validate the prognostic and/or predictive accuracy of a drug response marker by the development of improved alternative algorithms based on...
In screening and diagnostic tests, the probability that a person with a positive test is a true positive (i.e., has the disease), is referred to as the predictive value of a positive test; whereas, the predictive value of a negative test is the probability that the person with a negative test does not have the disease. Predictive value is related to the sensitivity and specificity of the test.
Techniques of nucleotide sequence analysis that increase the range, complexity, sensitivity, and accuracy of results by greatly increasing the scale of operations and thus the number of nucleotides, and the number of copies of each nucleotide sequenced. The sequencing may be done by analysis of the synthesis or ligation products, hybridization to preexisting sequences, etc.
Tapping of the subarachnoid space in the lumbar region, usually between the third and fourth lumbar vertebrae.
Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.
The lumbar and sacral plexuses taken together. The fibers of the lumbosacral plexus originate in the lumbar and upper sacral spinal cord (L1 to S3) and innervate the lower extremities.
A diagnostic test is any kind of medical test performed to aid in the diagnosis or detection of disease. For example: to diagnose diseases to measure the progress or recovery from disease to confirm that a person is free from disease Clin...
Radiology is the branch of medicine that studies imaging of the body; X-ray (basic, angiography, barium swallows), ultrasound, MRI, CT and PET. These imaging techniques can be used to diagnose, but also to treat a range of conditions, by allowing visuali...
