Degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis is a common condition, predominantly affecting middle-aged and elderly people. This study focused on patients with neurogenic claudication secondary to lumbar stenosis without spondylolisthesis or deformity.

The evidence regarding the consequences of subsidence with lateral lumbar interbody fusion (LLIF) has been sparse. The objective of this study is to calculate the incidence of subsidence and reoperati...
In an aging society, the number of patients with symptomatic degenerative spondylolisthesis (DS) is increasing and there is an emerging need for fusion surgery. However, few studies have compared tran...
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,...
Lumbar spinal fusion is an established surgical technique in spine surgery. The goal of spinal fusion is a biomechanically lasting interbody union, which can be accomplished through different surgica...
To compare the impact of minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MIS-TLIF) with open posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) on sagittal lumbar-pelvic radiographic parameters for d...
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 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...
To compare postoperative radiographic sagittal parameters after monosegmental lumbar fusion: posterior lumbar interbody fusion versus postrolateral fusion in treatment of lumbar spine inst...
The aim of the study is to observe and document surgical practice and evaluate patients' outcomes following a MAST™ single or double level instrumented fusion procedure using PLIF (Poste...
Assess clinical and radiographic outcomes in patients who undergo anterior cervical discectomy fusion (ACDF), transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) or posterior lumbar interbody fu...
Decompression external to the body, most often the slow lessening of external pressure on the whole body (especially in caisson workers, deep sea divers, and persons who ascend to great heights) to prevent DECOMPRESSION SICKNESS. It includes also sudden accidental decompression, but not surgical (local) decompression or decompression applied through body openings.
Tapping of the subarachnoid space in the lumbar region, usually between the third and fourth lumbar vertebrae.
The GENETIC RECOMBINATION of the parts of two or more GENES resulting in a gene with different or additional regulatory regions, or a new chimeric gene product. ONCOGENE FUSION includes an ONCOGENE as at least one of the fusion partners and such gene fusions are often detected in neoplastic cells and are transcribed into ONCOGENE FUSION PROTEINS. ARTIFICIAL GENE FUSION is carried out in vitro by RECOMBINANT DNA technology.

A secondary headache disorder attributed to low CEREBROSPINAL FLUID pressure caused by SPINAL PUNCTURE, usually after dural or lumbar puncture.
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...
