This study was started from Oct. 2015. This study aimed to evaluate the outcome of bracing following transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) in patients with degenerative lumbar spin...
This is a pivotal Randomized Clinical trial to provide clinical data to demonstrate the safety and effectiveness of the Pedicle Lengthening Osteotomy Procedure with implantation of the Alt...
The aim of this Phase II trial is to evaluate safety and efficacy of Hyalospine in patients undergoing lumbar laminectomy or laminotomy for degenerative spinal stenosis or disk herniation....
Spinal stenosis is a common orthopedic spine condition that limits individuals ability to walk and stand because of nerve compression. Surgical treatment can alleviate leg pain and improve...
Neurogenic intermittent claudication is a specific symptom complex occurring in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis. Characteristic of this disease is the occurrence of increasing leg, bu...
Decompression alone to treat degenerative lumbar stenosis with and without concomitant degenerative spondylolisthesis (DS; non-DS) has shown ambiguous results in the literature.
The degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis is one of the most commonly treated spinal disorders in older adults; despite its increasing frequency, it is not yet clear what the most effective therapy migh...
Degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis is a condition related to aging in which structural changes cause narrowing of the central canal and intervertebral foramen. It is currently the leading cause for s...
Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) can impair blood flow to the spinal nerves giving rise to neurogenic claudication and limited walking ability. Reducing lumbar lordosis can increases the volume of the spi...
In degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis (DLSS) variability of symptoms according to the severity of stenosis is not well understood. Therefore, another factor that impacts functional outcomes of DLSS p...
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.
Tapping of the subarachnoid space in the lumbar region, usually between the third and fourth lumbar vertebrae.
Narrowing of the spinal canal.
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.
A nerve originating in the lumbar spinal cord (usually L2 to L4) and traveling through the lumbar plexus to provide motor innervation to extensors of the thigh and sensory innervation to parts of the thigh, lower leg, and foot, and to the hip and knee joints.
