Correlations Between Paraspinal Extensor Muscle Endurance And Clinical Outcomes In Preoperative LSS Patients And Clinical Value Of An Endurance Classification London Spine

By London Spine

Abstract Background: Few study has investigated how paraspinal muscle endurance deteriorates in lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) patients. In addition, little information is available on the relationship between clinical outcomes and the endurance of paraspinal muscles. Objective: To explore the correlation between paraspinal extensor muscle endurance, quality of life (QOL) and sagittal spinopelvic alignment. Besides, we…

Decompression With Or Without Fusion In Degenerative Adjacent Segment Stenosis After Lumbar Fusions London Spine

By Sarah

Abstract Adjacent segment stenosis can occur after lumbar fusion surgery, leading to significant discomfort and pain. If further surgeries are required, the choice of the operative technique is an individual decision. In patients without over instability, it is still uncertain whether patients with adjacent spinal stenosis should be treated like primary lumbar spinal stenosis via…

C-arm-Free Simultaneous OLIF51 and Percutaneous Pedicle Screw Fixation in a Single Lateral Position Research Article

By Medical Secretary

J Vis Exp. 2022 Sep 16;(187). doi: 10.3791/63572.ABSTRACTOblique lumbar interbody fusion (OLIF) is an established technique for the indirect decompression of lumbar canal stenosis. However, OLIF at the L5-S1 level (OLIF51) is technically difficult because of the anatomical structures. We present a novel simultaneous technique of OLIF51 with percutaneous pedicle screw fixation without fluoroscopy. The…
