Radiation exposure for fluoroscopy-guided lumbosacral epidural steroid injections: comparison of the transforaminal and caudal approaches.
We evaluated and compared the radiation exposure caused by using the fluoroscopy-guided transforaminal and caudal approaches of lumbosacral epidural steroid injection (ESI). Only a few studies focused on the radiation exposure to patients who underwent lumbosacral ESI for pain management. A total of...
Perioperative variations of the intracompartmental pressures of the paraspinal muscles.
Study of the influence of thoracolumbar spinal surgery through a posterior approach to the intercompartmental pressure of the paraspinal muscles. To create waveforms according to the pressure variations up to 24 hours postoperatively and relate these measurements to independent parameters. The exist...
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) plus BMP-2 upregulates intervertebral disc-cell matrix synthesis more than either BMP-2 alone or PEMF al...
We decided to carry out an experiment whereby we combined PEMF with BMP-2. Our thoughts were that BMP-2 plus PEMF could be better than either alone. The PEMF signal used was similar to that used in the clinical treatment of fracture nonunions or delayed fracture healing. Human disc cells were treate...
The Existence of Intravertebral Cleft Impact on Outcomes of Non-acute Osteoporotic Vertebral Compression Fractures Patients Treated by Percu...
: CT and MRI were sensitivity to detect IVC sign. PKP could improve pain, functional activity, kyphotic angulation and anterior height of both IVC and non-IVC groups, however, more cleft pattern of cement and higher intradiscal cement leakage in IVC group....
Prospective Evaluation of Quality of Life in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis before and after Surgery.
: Surgical treatment of AIS improved patient quality of life, as shown by significant improvement on all SRS-30 and SF-36 domains. Questionnaire scores did not correlate with Cobb angle, curve correction, or type of instrumentation....
Cervical endplate and facet arthrosis: an anatomic study of cadaveric specimens.
An anatomic, epidemiologic study of cervical endplate and facet arthrosis in cadaveric spines. To determine the prevalence of cervical endplate and facet arthrosis and the relationship between these 2 entities in a large population sample. Cervical endplate and facet arthrosis are common radiographi...
Comparison of Clinical Outcome in Overweight or Obese Patients After Minimally Invasive Versus Open Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion.
: Minimally invasive TLIF is a safe and reliable procedure for treatment of overweight or obese patients. The minimally invasive technique offers several potential advantages when compared to open procedure. Although this technique needs longer X-ray exposure time, it may still be a good option for o...
Multilevel lumbar spinal stenosis decompression: midterm outcome using a modified hinge osteotomy technique.
A prospective cohort study was carried out looking at the functional outcome and post procedure translational segmental instability after multi-level lumbar decompression using a hinge osteotomy technique. The hinge osteotomy technique involves unilateral subperiosteal muscle dissection with osteoto...
Primary internal fixation of unilateral C1 lateral mass sagittal split fractures: a series of 3 cases.
We have previously described an uncommon fracture variant involving a unilateral sagittal split of the C1 lateral mass with high propensity for late deformity and pain, despite lack of compromise to the transverse atlantal ligament. A retrospective review of all patients with C1 fractures between Se...
