  1. Prevention of proximal junctional kyphosis after posterior surgery of scheuermann kyphosis: an operative technique.

    Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques 28(2):E101 (2015) PMID 25075991

    We aimed to have a smooth passage from rigid to mobile segments and to decrease the stress on proximal junction during cantilever reduction to prevent PJK. A total of 60 consecutive patients (mean age: 18.27±3.19, male/female: 28/32) who were surgically treated for Scheuermann kyphosis in our instit...
  2. Experience With a Modular PEEK System for Cervical Vertebral Body Replacement.

    Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques 28(2):E89 (2015) PMID 25099975

    A retrospective case series. The authors present their experience with the ATHLET vertebral body replacement (VBR) system in combination with the TOSCA plating system for the treatment of cervical spondylotic myelopathy. Data obtained from 20 cases were reviewed. Corpectomy and VBR with the ATHLET s...
  3. 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...
  4. 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....
  5. 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....
  6. 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...
  7. Mini-open or percutaneous bilateral lumbar transfacet pedicle screw fixation: a technical note.

    Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques 28(2):61 (2015) PMID 23222099

    We present 2 illustrative cases where bilateral transfacet pedicle screws were placed for posterior instrumentation after a step-by-step technique that can be used in a mini-open or percutaenous procedure. Postoperatively, both patients had adequately placed transfacet pedicle screws bilaterally on...
  8. 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...
  9. 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

  10. 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...
