The NexGen legacy posterior stabilized (LPS) prosthesis was introduced in 1997 after many design changes to its predecessor, the Insall-Burstein II prosthesis. However, there have been no reported long-term studies on the performance of this implant. Prospectively, collected data from a local database comprising primary total knee replacements (TKRs) with LPS between 1997 and 2002 was analyzed. All implants were fixed with cement. Patients were followed up at 1, 3, 5, 7, and 10 years, with patient satisfact...
Objective and subjective fluoroscopic assessments of a new synthetic spine model.
There are few reported instances of intraspinal migration of a bullet fragment. The majority of these migrations occur caudally, typically below the level of T10. Even fewer cases demonstrate cephalad migration from the sacral spine to the lumbar spine. We report here for the first time a case of a cephalad migration intradurally from the thoracic spine to cervical spine.
Incidental durotomy (ID) is one of the most common intraoperative complications seen in spine surgery. Conflicting evidence has been presented regarding whether or not outcomes are affected by the presence of an ID.
A retrospective, longitudinal cohort study.
Answer to the Letter to the Editor of Miao Yu et al. concerning "Is L5-S1 motion segment different from the rest? A radiographic kinematic assessment of 72 patients with chronic low back pain" by AB Sabnis et al. (Eur. Spine J; 27(5):1127-1135).
Cervical spine (C-spine) injuries cause significant morbidity and mortality among the elderly. Although the population of older-adults ≥65 years in the US is expanding, estimates of the burden and outcome of C-spine injury are lacking.
Surgical site infections (SSI) following spine surgery are debilitating complications to patients and costly to the healthcare system.
Online physician rating websites are increasingly utilized by patients to evaluate their doctors. The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate factors associated with better spine surgeon ratings.
Letter to the Editor concerning "Low virulence bacterial infections in cervical intervertebral discs: a prospective case series" by Chen Y, Wang X, Zhang X, et al. (Eur Spine J; 2018: doi:10.1007/s00586-018-5582-4).
Prescription opioid abuse is a public health emergency. Opioid prescriptions for spine patients account for a large proportion of use. Some states have implemented statutory limits on prescribers, however it remains unclear whether such laws are effective.
The preoperative prediction of medical complications is essential to optimize perioperative management. SpineSage™ is a free of charge online calculator to predict medical complications in spine surgery. The current study utilizes it in patients undergoing spine surgery to assess whether the predicted risks would correlate with the actual complication rate in clinical practice.
We present a rare case of Paget's disease (PD) with involvement of the lumbar spine over a period of 19 years. We discuss the diagnostic process to rule out alternative diagnoses and medical and surgical treatment strategies.
Previous studies have found an association between mental illness and poor outcomes in spine surgery, but little is known about the effects of depression and/or anxiety on the adult spinal deformity population. In addition, most relevant studies exclusively focused on the lumbar spine and had relatively small patient sizes.
Answer to the Letter to the Editor of Manu N. Capoor et al. concerning "Low virulence bacterial infections in cervical intervertebral discs: a prospective case series" by Chen Y, Wang X, Zhang X, et al. (Eur Spine J; 2018: doi: 10.1007/s00586-018-5582-4).
The aim of the study was to evaluate the efficacy and safety of the direct lateral approach to the lumbar spine in the treatment of painful isthmic spondylolisthesis in adults.
To assess whether a focused MRI limited to the region of known acute traumatic thoracic or lumbar fracture(s) would miss any clinically significant injuries that would change patient management.
Quantitative computed tomography (QCT) of the lumbar spine is used as an alternative to dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry in assessing bone mineral density (BMD). The average BMD of L1-L2 is the standard reportable metric used for diagnostic purposes according to current recommendations. The density of L1 and L2 has also been proposed as a reference value for the remaining lumbosacral vertebrae and is commonly used as a surrogate marker for overall bone health. Since regional BMD differences within the spine...
The unique anatomy and biomechanical features of the cervical spine and sacrum may impact treatment outcomes following spine stereotactic body radiotherapy (SBRT). Current data for spine metastases are not specific for these locations.
A 36-year-old man was diagnosed with Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) of the cervical spine with a unifocal expansive osteolytic lesion of C4. The surgical management with a 2-year follow-up and a review of the literature on LCH of the cervical spine are presented. Although a rare condition, LCH is an important differential diagnosis of any osteolytic lesion in the cervical spine with localized pain in a young adult patient. Review of the literature suggests a higher prevalence of LCH lesions affecting t...
Letter to Editor concerning "Comparative study of the efficacy of transdermal buprenorphine patches and prolonged-release tramadol tablets for postoperative pain control after spinal fusion surgery: a prospective, randomized controlled non-inferiority trial" by Kim HJ, Ahn HS, Nam Y, Chang BS, Lee CK, Yeom JS (2017) Eur Spine J 26:2961-2968.
This study shows the first phase of validation of a new model for realistic training on spine surgery, conducted from January 2014 to November 2015.
