Effect Of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis On Bone Mineral Density In Osteoporosis Patients Treated With Ibandronate London Spine

By London Spine

Abstract Background: Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) can cause various neurological symptoms and reduce the daily activity of patients. Many studies have shown that free physical activities and exercise can improve bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with osteoporosis. However, the effect of LSS on BMD has not been reported. The purpose of this study was…

The Durability Of Minimally Invasive Lumbar Decompression (Mild() ) Procedure In Patients With Symptomatic Lumbar Spinal Stenosis: Long Term Follow-Up London Spine

By London Spine

Abstract Background: Minimally invasive lumbar decompression (mild® ) has been shown to be safe and effective for the treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis patients with hypertrophic ligamentum flavum as a contributing factor. This study examines the long-term durability of the mild procedure through 5-year follow-up. Pain relief and opioid medications utilization during 12-month follow-up were…

Psychological And Functional Comparison Between Minimally Invasive And Open Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion For Single-Level Lumbar Spinal Stenosis London Spine

By London Spine

Abstract Objective: The aim of this study was to investigate whether treatment with minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (Mis-TLIF) causes patients suffering from lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) to experience less anxiety and better clinical efficacy than open transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF). Methods: In this retrospective cohort study, we analyzed 86 patients, including 46…

Metal-On-Metal Versus Metal-On-Plastic Artificial Discs In Two-Level Anterior Cervical Disc Replacement: A Meta-Analysis With Follow-Up Of 5 Years Or More London Spine

By London Spine

Abstract Background context: Although highlighted in joint arthroplasty studies, long-term outcomes between differing biomaterial composites, such as metal-on-metal (MoM) and metal-on-plastic (MoP) in anterior cervical disc replacement (ACDR) have not been thoroughly investigated. Purpose: The purpose of this study was to evaluate the patient-reported clinical outcomes, overall reoperation rates, complications, and rates of ASD of…

Effectiveness Of Conservative Non-Pharmacologic Therapies For Pain, Disability, Physical Capacity, And Physical Activity Behaviour In Patients With Degenerative Lumbar Spinal Stenosis: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis London Spine

By London Spine

Abstract Objective: To investigate the effectiveness of conservative non-pharmacologic therapies on pain-related, physical capacity, and physical activity outcomes in patients with degenerative lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). Data sources: Systematic search of MEDLINE, EMBASE, CENTRAL, and PsycINFO from inception to November 4, 2019 without language restrictions. Study selection: Pairs of review authors independently identified randomized clinical…

Comparison Of Operator And Patient Radiation Exposure During Fluoroscopy-Guided Vertebroplasty And Kyphoplasty: A Systematic Review And Meta-Analysis London Spine

By London Spine

Abstract Objective: Percutaneous vertebroplasty (PV) and balloon kyphoplasty (BK) are two minimally invasive techniques used to treat mechanical pain secondary to spinal compression fractures. A concern for both procedures is the radiation exposure incurred by both operators and patients. The authors conducted a systematic review of the available literature to examine differences in interventionalist radiation…

The Outcome Of Expandable Titanium Mesh Implants For The Treatment Of Multi-Level Vertebral Compression Fractures Caused By Multiple Myeloma London Spine

By London Spine

Abstract Background: Painful vertebral compression fractures (VCFs) in myeloma patients severely reduce quality of life. Currently, the International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) and National Institute of Clinical Excellence NICE advocate the use of either balloon kyphoplasty or vertebroplasty in the management of these fractures. Methods: All patients with VCFs and myeloma who adhered to the…

A Combined Experimental And Computational Study Of Mechanical Properties After Balloon Kyphoplasty London Spine

By London Spine

Abstract Vertebral compression fractures rank among the most frequent injuries to the musculoskeletal system, with more than 1 million fractures per annum worldwide. The past decade has seen a considerable increase in the utilisation of surgical procedures such as balloon kyphoplasty to treat these injuries. While many kyphoplasty studies have examined the risk of damage…

Elevated Mitochondrial Reactive Oxygen Species Within Cerebrospinal Fluid As New Index In The Early Detection Of Lumbar Spinal Stenosis London Spine

By London Spine

Abstract Lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) is a common neurodegenerative condition. However, how neurogenic claudication develops with severe leg pain has not yet been clearly elucidated. Moreover, cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) physiology at the lumbosacral level is poorly understood because of the difficulties involved in quantification and visualization. Recent studies have suggested that assessment of mitochondrial function…

Inclination Of The Small Laminar Slope Angle Leads To Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Due To Hypertrophy Of The Ligamentum Flavum London Spine

By London Spine

Abstract Objective: This study was designed to investigate the relationship between the laminar slope angle (LSA) and the lumbar disc degenerative grade, the cross-section area (CSA) of multifidus muscle, the muscle-fat index, and the thickness of the ligamentum flavum. Methods: Retrospective analysis of 122 patients who were scheduled to undergo a lumbar operation for diagnoses…
