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.
This article was published in the following journal.
Name: World neurosurgery
This study aimed to evaluate the risk factors for adjacent vertebral compression fractures following lumbar spinal fusion with instrumentation.
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...
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...
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...
A retrospective study that aims to report Adjacent Segment Degeneration (ASD) incidence and spinopelvic balance in short lumbosacral instrumentation for degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis...
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...
Investigate the potential of tissue grafting that includes human mesenchymal stem cells in the repair and potential stabilization of the degenerative Lumbar disk and facet joint denovo and...
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...
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...
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.
