Disease relevance of Spondylolisthesis

  • In 50 patients with degenerative disorders of the lumbar spine (41 with disc herniation, five with osteogenic spinal stenosis, and four with degenerative spondylolisthesis) the range of rotation was increased in the relevant spinal segments [1].
  • The results and complications of pedicle screw plate (PSP) stabilizations were investigated in lumbar fresh fractures, malunions, lumbar metastases, primary tumors, lumbosacral fusions, and highgrade spondylolisthesis [2].
  • Guidelines for the performance of fusion procedures for degenerative disease of the lumbar spine. Part 9: fusion in patients with stenosis and spondylolisthesis [3].
  • Lumbar spinal fusion is a well-recognized surgical treatment of intractable low back pain resulting from DDD or spondylolisthesis [4].
  • Injuries included anterior arch avulsion and posterior arch compression fractures of the atlas, odontoid fractures, traumatic spondylolisthesis and teardrop fracture of C2, laminar and articular pillar fractures, and hyperextension dislocation injuries [5].

High impact information on Spondylolisthesis

  • Prevalence of isthmic lumbar spondylolisthesis in nondiabetic subjects and NIDDM patients [6].
  • CONCLUSION: Vacuum disk, facet involvement, vertebral body spondylolisthesis, joint disorganization and debris, and gadolinium-enhancement patterns of vertebral bodies and disks may help differentiate spinal neuropathic arthropathy from infection [7].
  • Traumatic spondylolisthesis of C-2, frequently referred to as the hangman's fracture, is typically regarded as a hyperextension injury with rare neurologic sequelae by virtue of decompression of the neural canal [8].
  • The procedure was performed in sixteen patients who had a bilateral defect of the pars interarticularis with or without grade-I or II spondylolisthesis, had had failure of non-operative treatment, and had had temporary relief of pain after the area of the defect in the pars interarticularis had been infiltrated with lidocaine [9].
  • An individual in who both facet-joint angles at the level of the fourth and fifth lumbar vertebrae were more than 45 degrees relative to the coronal plane was twenty-five times more likely to have degenerative spondylolisthesis (95 per cent confidence interval, seven to ninety-eight times) [10].

Chemical compound and disease context of Spondylolisthesis

  • The mean orientation of the lumbar facet angles relative to the coronal plane was more sagittal at all levels in the patients who had degenerative spondylolisthesis [10].
  • A case of traumatic spondylolisthesis of C6 and C7 is presented [11].
  • BACKGROUND: The extent of the instability of the traumatic spondylolisthesis of C2 within its different types remains unclear [12].
  • The association of lumbar spondylolisthesis with collagen IX tryptophan alleles [13].
  • OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the clinical and radiologic outcomes of one-stage posterior decompression-stabilization after partial reduction and trans-sacral interbody fusion with a titanium cage for severe L5-S1 spondylolisthesis [14].
