No relationship between body mass index and changes in pain and disability after exercise rehabilitation for patients with mild to moderate ...
A retrospective multicenter study. To investigate the relationship between body mass index (BMI) and changes in pain and disability resulting from exercise-based chronic low back pain (cLBP) treatment. Past research has shown evidence of a relationship between BMI, a measurement of obesity, and cLBP...
Utility of postoperative radiographs after anterior lumbar interbody fusion with or without posterior instrumentation.
Retrospective clinical and radiographical review. To evaluate the utility of plain radiographical surveillance after anterior lumbar interbody fusion and determine to what extent radiographical findings affect postoperative decision making. Postoperative radiographical surveillance is a ubiquitous p...
Iatrogenic consequences of early magnetic resonance imaging in acute, work-related, disabling low back pain.
Retrospective cohort study. To determine the effect of early (receipt ≤30 d postonset) magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on disability and medical cost outcomes in patients with acute, disabling, work-related low back pain (LBP) with and without radiculopathy. Evidence-based guidelines suggest that,...
Alternative procedures for the treatment of cervical spondylotic myelopathy: arthroplasty, oblique corpectomy, skip laminectomy: evaluation ...
We conducted a systematic search in MEDLINE and the Cochrane Collaboration Library for literature published through October 15, 2012, on human studies published in the English language containing abstracts to answer the following key questions: (1) Is there evidence that artificial disc replacement...
Automatic cobb angle determination from radiographic images.
Automatic measurement of Cobb angle in patients with scoliosis. To test the accuracy of an automatic Cobb angle determination method from frontal radiographical images. Thirty-six frontal radiographical images of patients with scoliosis. A modified charged particle model is used to determine the cur...
Long-term 2- to 5-Year Clinical and Functional Outcomes of Minimally Invasive Surgery for Adult Scoliosis.
We assess MIS technique's clinical and functional outcomes during a 2- to 5-year period. Traditional surgical approaches for adult scoliosis are associated with significant blood loss and morbidity, in a population that is often elderly with multiple medical comorbidities. Minimally invasive surgery...
Clinically significant differences exist between curves in operative idiopathic early-onset scoliosis and adolescent idiopathic scoliosis.
We identified operative patients (60, IEOS; 1537, AIS) in 2 multicenter databases and measured preoperative radiographical parameters of interest. The measurements were compared using the Student t test and other appropriate statistical methods (significance, P= 0.05). The IEOS and AIS groups were s...
Preoperative anemia and perioperative outcomes in patients who undergo elective spine surgery.
Our findings, using a large multi-institutional sample of prospectively collected data, suggests that anemia should be regarded as an independent risk factor for perioperative and postoperative complications that deserves attention prior to elective spine surgery....
An in vitro model of degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis.
A biomechanical human cadaveric study. To create a biomechanical model of low-grade degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis (DLS), defined by anterior listhesis, for future testing of spinal instrumentation. Current spinal implants are used to treat a multitude of conditions that range from herniated...
Reoperations in cervical total disc replacement compared with anterior cervical fusion: results compiled from multiple prospective food and ...
This study is based on a post hoc analysis of data collected from multiple prospective, randomized studies conducted at the same site. The purpose of this study was to compare the reoperation rates in patients with cervical total disc replacement (TDR) versus patients with anterior cervical fusion (...
