A retrospective study. The aims of this study were to evaluate the clinical significance of, characteristics of, and risk factors for adjacent segment degeneration (ASD) in patients who have undergone instrumented lumbar fusion. ASD has been considered a potential long-term complication of spina...
The aim of this study was to assess the effectiveness and safety of percutaneous vertebroplasty, a new technique for the treatment of vertebral pain deriving from fracture or gross osteolytic lesion due to multiple myeloma spinal involvement. Spinal osteolytic lesions are frequently associated w...
Prospective clinical trial. To test the hypothesis that quantified trunk rotational strength training will equalize any strength asymmetry, increase strength overall, and stabilize adolescent idiopathic scoliosis. Bracing, the only generally accepted form of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis nonop...
Retrospective review of 259 lumbar discectomies. To compare rates of reoperation after subtotal discectomy versus established rates after fragment excision. Herniated nucleus pulposes (HNP) and annular morphology influence rates of reherniation after discectomy. Certain patterns are linked to re...
This study retrospectively reviewed spine surgical procedures complicated by wound infection and managed by a protocol including the use of vacuum-assisted wound closure (VAC). To define factors influencing the number of debridements needed before the final wound closure by applying VAC for pati...
Rat spinal fusion model. This study aimed to assess the ability of rat bone marrow cells (RBMCs) transfected with bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2-containing lentivirus to induce a posterolateral spinal fusion in a rat model. Spinal arthrodesis is a commonly performed spinal procedure and auto...
Consecutive case series. To report a new percutaneous sacroiliac joint (SIJ) arthrodesis technique utilizing a Hollow Modular Anchorage screw. A variety of SIJ arthrodesis techniques have been reported in the established academia to treat intractable SIJ pain. None combines minimal surgical expo...
Surgery for degenerative lumbar scoliosis remains challenging for spine surgeons even with the application of pedicle screw instrumentation. This retrospective study assesses the outcomes of instrumented posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) for degenerative lumbar scoliosis. From April 2000 ...
Flexion-extension radiographs are commonly used to assess lumbar fusion. Recommended criteria for solid fusion have varied from 1 to 5 degrees of angular motion between vertebrae. Notwithstanding this wide variation, the validity of these criteria have never been biomechanically tested. As a pre...
Prospective study. To examine whether preservation of the funicular section of the nuchal ligament attached to the C6 and C7 spinous processes could prevent unfavorable radiologic changes such as kyphotic deformity and destabilization at the C6/7 segment, and to investigate possible correlations...
