  1. MRI morphology of surgically treated lumbar canal stenosis: a retrospective study.

    Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques 28(1):12 (2015) PMID 24270579

    We need to define what would constitute radiologic LCS and whether he needs surgical intervention. This paper attempts to define MRI features of LCS addressing the morphology rather than canal dimensions in any direction. A total of 64 consecutive patients who were operated at 113 levels of LCS were...
  2. Retrospective Study of Anterior Interbody Fusion Rates and Patient Outcomes of Using Mineralized Collagen and Bone Marrow Aspirate in Multil...

    Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques (2013) PMID 23563352

    : Fusion rates in multilevel anterior spinal fusion using mineralized collagen and BMA are relatively low compared to fusion rates of 95% or more reported in the existing literature on long fusions with BMP....
  3. X-ray based kinematic analysis of cervical spine according to prosthesis designs: analysis of the Mobi C, Bryan, PCM, and Prestige LP.

    Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques (2013) PMID 23429318

    : These results suggest preservation of sagittal ROM and increased superior adjacent segment kinematics, regardless of prosthesis design. Devices with an unconstrained design may not be beneficial to adjacent segment kinematics compared with semiconstrained prostheses....
  4. Clinical Outcomes and Radiologic Changes Following Microsurgical Bilateral Decompression via a Unilateral Approach in Patients With Lumbar C...

    Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques (2012) PMID 23073148

    : Despite small case series with retrospective design and the absence of a control group, our study suggest that bilateral decompression via a unilateral approach in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis and grade 1 degenerative spondylolisthesis showed good mid-term clinical outcomes, despite an incr...
  5. Health care burden of anterior cervical spine surgery: national trends in hospital charges and length of stay, 2000-2009.

    Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques 28(1):5 (2015) PMID 24136049

    We reviewed 86,622,872 hospital discharge records (2000-2009) from the Nationwide Inpatient Sample and used ICD-9-CM codes to identify anterior cervical spine procedures (927,103). We assessed those records for outcomes (total hospital charges, LOS) and covariates (age, sex, race/ethnicity, insuranc...
  6. Comparative analysis of perioperative differences between hybrid versus pedicle screw instrumentation in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis by ...

    Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques 27(8):447 (2014) PMID 24556828

  7. Evaluation of quality of life in adolescent idiopathic scoliosis with different distal fusion level: a comparison of L3 versus L4.

    Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques 27(5):E155 (2014) PMID 24513659

    Retrospective case-control study. The aim of this study was to assess patients' quality of life with different fusion levels in posterior pedicle screw correction of idiopathic scoliosis. No previous study has demonstrated differences in health-related quality of life (HRQoL) between patients fused...
  8. Developing a mechanical and chemical model of degeneration in young bovine lumbar intervertebral disks and reversing loss in mechanical func...

    Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques 27(5):E168 (2014) PMID 24513662

    A mechanical and chemical model of intervertebral disk (IVD) degeneration was developed by examining the enzymatic degradation of the nucleus pulposus (NP), and a gelatin-based restoration study was performed. It was hypothesized that forced enzymatic degradation of the NP will mimic natural degener...
  9. Perioperative and long-term clinical outcomes for bone morphogenetic protein versus iliac crest bone graft for lumbar fusion in degenerative...

    Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques 27(3):117 (2014) PMID 24945290

    Systematic review with meta-analysis. To compare the perioperative and long-term postoperative effectiveness of bone morphogenetic protein (BMP) for lumbar arthrodesis in skeletally mature adults with degenerative disk disease (DDD) to that of the current golden standard treatment, iliac crest autol...
  10. Epidemiology of traumatic cervical spinal fractures and risk factors for traumatic cervical spinal cord injury in China.

    Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques 26(8):E306 (2013) PMID 23429308

    We retrospectively reviewed hospital records of all patients aged 18 years or older with traumatic cervical spinal fracture (TCSF) at 2 university-affiliated hospitals between January 2001 and December 2010 (n = 643); 417 patients (64.9%) presented with traumatic cervical spinal cord injury (TCSCI)....
