Summary of "Factors Predictive of Adjacent Segment Disease after Lumbar Spinal Fusion."

Adjacent segment disease (ASD) is a long-term complication of lumbar spinal fusion. This study aims to evaluate demographic and operative factors which influence development of ASD after fusion for lumbar degenerative pathologies.

Commentary: Prognostic Factors for Adjacent Segment Disease After L4-L5 Lumbar Fusion.

Risk factor analysis of the incidence of subsequent adjacent vertebral fracture following lumbar spinal fusion surgery with instrumentation.

This study aimed to evaluate the risk factors for adjacent vertebral compression fractures following lumbar spinal fusion with instrumentation.

Curve progression in de novo degenerative lumbar scoliosis combined with degenerative segment disease after short-segment fusion.

To validate the reliability of Berjano and Lamartina classification system of surgical planning in cases of de novo degenerative lumbar scoliosis (DNDLS) combined with degenerative segment disease and...

Topping-off technique for stabilization of lumbar degenerative instabilities in 322 patients.

Semi-rigid instrumentation (SRI) was introduced to take advantage of the concept of load sharing in surgery for spinal stabilization. The authors investigated a topping-off technique in which interbod...

Heterotopic ossification and radiographic adjacent-segment disease after cervical disc arthroplasty.

Cervical disc arthroplasty (CDA) is an accepted motion-sparing technique associated with favorable patient outcomes. However, heterotopic ossification (HO) and adjacent-segment degeneration are poorly...

PEEK Versus Silicon Interspinous Spacer for Reduction of Supradjacent Segment Degeneration

A retrospective study that aims to report Adjacent Segment Degeneration (ASD) incidence and spinopelvic balance in short lumbosacral instrumentation for degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis...

Risk Factors of Second Surgery for Adjacent Segment Disease Following Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion

Although the incidence of second surgery for adjacent segment disease (ASD) after anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) has been reported, its risk factors remain elusive. Few stu...

Human Autograft Mesenchymal Stem Cell Mediated Stabilization of The Degenerative Lumbar Spine

Comparison of Unilateral or Bilateral Fixation in the Treatment of LDD

TLIF is a popular lumbar interbody fusion technique to perform anterior interbody fusion. Pedicle screws providing initial stability have been developed to correct deformity, improve the r...

Spinal Segment MRI Perfusion and Diffusion Response to Spinal Manipulation in Low Back Pain Patients

The main objective is to quantify changes in diffusion and perfusion in the intervertebral disc and adjacent spinal muscle tissue of a spinal segment receiving a spinal manipulative or con...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Tapping of the subarachnoid space in the lumbar region, usually between the third and fourth lumbar vertebrae.

The 31 paired peripheral nerves formed by the union of the dorsal and ventral spinal roots from each spinal cord segment. The spinal nerve plexuses and the spinal roots are also included.

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.

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.
