Although the importance of spinopelvic sagittal balance and its implications for clinical outcomes of spinal fusion surgery have been described, to the authors' knowledge there have been no reports of the relationship between spinopelvic alignment and clinical outcomes for 2-level posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF). The purpose of this study was to elucidate the relationship between clinical outcomes and spinopelvic sagittal parameters after 2-level PLIF for 2-level degenerative spondylolisthesis (DS).

Consideration of sagittal alignment is an integral part of spinal fusion surgery correlating with superior outcomes. Segmental lordosis is an important contributor to sagittal alignment. This study as...
Comparative study of multilevel posterior interbody fusion plus anterior longitudinal ligament release versus classic multilevel posterior interbody fusion in the treatment of adult spinal deformities.
Sagittal imbalance and loss of lumbar lordosis are the main drivers of functional disability in adult degenerative scoliosis. The main limitations of the classic posterior lumbar interbody fusion tech...
OBJECTIVETransforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) is commonly used for lumbar fusion, such as for foraminal decompression, stabilization, and improving segmental lordosis. Although many options e...
OBJECTIVEWhile long-term studies have evaluated adjacent-segment disease (ASD) following posterior lumbar spine arthrodesis, no such studies have assessed the incidence and prevalence of ASD following...
To investigate the normative value of distance between the spinous processes (inter-spinous process distance, ISPD), correlations between patients' demographics and ISPD, and determine cutoff ISPD val...
The aim of this study is analyze the relationship between the density of visceral and subcutaneous fat and cellulite with the lumbar lordosis degree.
This study evaluates the predictor value of manual test in lumbar chronic patients blocks. Bibliography has show limited evidence of clinical predictors in lumbar blocks. Prior to lumbar f...
This study will be conducted at Research Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics (NRITO) n.a. Ya.L.Tsivyan, Novosibirsk, Russia. The current study is prospective pilot clinical study to...
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...
Posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) is the management of choice in double level lumbar (L) spondylolisthesis (L3-L5) after ineffective conservative treatment. We evaluated bilateral u...
The anterior concavity in the curvature of the lumbar and cervical spine as viewed from the side. The term usually refers to abnormally increased curvature (hollow back, saddle back, swayback). It does not include lordosis as normal mating posture in certain animals ( = POSTURE + SEX BEHAVIOR, ANIMAL).
The highest dosage administered that does not produce toxic effects. The NOAEL will depend on how closely dosages are spaced (lowest-observed-adverse-effect level and no-observed-effect level) and the number of animals examined. The ultimate objective is usually to determine not the "safe" dosage in laboratory animals but the "safe" dosage for humans. Therefore, the extrapolation most often required of toxicologists is from high-dosage studies in laboratory animals to low doses in humans.

A clinicopathological syndrome or diagnostic term for a type of glomerular injury that has multiple causes, primary or secondary. Clinical features include PROTEINURIA, reduced GLOMERULAR FILTRATION RATE, and EDEMA. Kidney biopsy initially indicates focal segmental glomerular consolidation (hyalinosis) or scarring which can progress to globally sclerotic glomeruli leading to eventual KIDNEY FAILURE.
Establishment of the level of a quantifiable effect indicative of a biologic process. The evaluation is frequently to detect the degree of toxic or therapeutic effect.
A calcification of the posterior longitudinal ligament of the spinal column, usually at the level of the cervical spine. It is often associated with anterior ankylosing hyperostosis.
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...
