2019-11-13 17:56:46 | BioPortfolio


To explore the clinical outcomes of discectomy with dynamic neutralization system(Dynesys) on treatment of single-segmental lumbar disc herniation(LDH) versus simple discectomy.


The study was to explore the clinical outcomes of discectomy with dynamic neutralization system(Dynesys) on treatment of single-segmental lumbar disc herniation(LDH) versus simple discectomy. 128 patients with single-segmental LDH were randomly divided into discectomy with Dynesys group(group A) and simple discectomy group(group B). Both groups were evaluated by Visual Analogue Score(VAS), Oswestry Disability Index(ODI), radiological evidence of intervertebral height and range of motion(ROM) of the treated segment at pre- and post-operation. Operation duration and blood loss was recorded. The clinical outcomes and complications were evaluated afterwards. All patients received a 2-year follow-up.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The planned and carefully managed manual movement of the musculoskeletal system, extremities, and spine to produce increased motion. The term is sometimes used to denote a precise sequence of movements of a joint to determine the presence of disease or to reduce a dislocation. In the case of fractures, orthopedic manipulation can produce better position and alignment of the fracture. (From Blauvelt & Nelson, A Manual of Orthopaedic Terminology, 5th ed, p264)

Nonexpendable items used in the performance of orthopedic surgery and related therapy. They are differentiated from ORTHOTIC DEVICES, apparatus used to prevent or correct deformities in patients.

The specialty or practice of nursing in the care of the orthopedic patient.

Devices which are used in the treatment of orthopedic injuries and diseases.

An occupational discipline founded by D.D. Palmer in the 1890's based on the relationship of the spine to health and disease. The spine is analyzed by X-rays and palpation, and vertebrae are adjusted manually to relieve pressures on the spinal cord. OSTEOPATHIC MEDICINE was originally similar but has become more like FAMILY PRACTICE.
