The anterior concavity in the curvature of the lumbar and cervical spine as viewed from the side. The term usually refers to abnormally increased curvature (hollow back, saddle back, swayback). It does not include lordosis as normal mating posture in certain animals ( = POSTURE + SEX BEHAVIOR, ANIMAL).
A surgical procedure that entails removing all (laminectomy) or part (laminotomy) of selected vertebral lamina to relieve pressure on the SPINAL CORD and/or SPINAL NERVE ROOTS. Vertebral lamina is the thin flattened posterior wall of vertebral arch that forms the vertebral foramen through which pass the spinal cord and nerve roots.
Intervertebral Disc Degeneration
Intervertebral Disc Displacement
Orthopedic Fixation Devices
Disease involving a spinal nerve root (see SPINAL NERVE ROOTS) which may result from compression related to INTERVERTEBRAL DISK DISPLACEMENT; SPINAL CORD INJURIES; SPINAL DISEASES; and other conditions. Clinical manifestations include radicular pain, weakness, and sensory loss referable to structures innervated by the involved nerve root.
Low Back Pain
Spina Bifida Occulta
A common congenital midline defect of fusion of the vertebral arch without protrusion of the spinal cord or meninges. The lesion is also covered by skin. L5 and S1 are the most common vertebrae involved. The condition may be associated with an overlying area of hyperpigmented skin, a dermal sinus, or an abnormal patch of hair. The majority of individuals with this malformation are asymptomatic although there is an increased incidence of tethered cord syndrome and lumbar SPONDYLOSIS. (From Joynt, Clinical Neurology, 1992, Ch55, p34)
Non-neoplastic tumor-like lesions at joints, developed from the SYNOVIAL MEMBRANE of a joint through the JOINT CAPSULE into the periarticular tissues. They are filled with SYNOVIAL FLUID with a smooth and translucent appearance. A synovial cyst can develop from any joint, but most commonly at the back of the knee, where it is known as POPLITEAL CYST.
The relating of causes to the effects they produce. Causes are termed necessary when they must always precede an effect and sufficient when they initiate or produce an effect. Any of several factors may be associated with the potential disease causation or outcome, including predisposing factors, enabling factors, precipitating factors, reinforcing factors, and risk factors.
A condition characterized by pain radiating from the back into the buttock and posterior/lateral aspects of the leg. Sciatica may be a manifestation of SCIATIC NEUROPATHY; RADICULOPATHY (involving the SPINAL NERVE ROOTS; L4, L5, S1, or S2, often associated with INTERVERTEBRAL DISK DISPLACEMENT); or lesions of the CAUDA EQUINA.
Surgical Procedures, Minimally Invasive
Studies used to test etiologic hypotheses in which inferences about an exposure to putative causal factors are derived from data relating to characteristics of persons under study or to events or experiences in their past. The essential feature is that some of the persons under study have the disease or outcome of interest and their characteristics are compared with those of unaffected persons.
Collagen Type IX
Magnetic Resonance Imaging
A group of disorders characterized by an autosomal dominant pattern of inheritance with high rates of spontaneous mutation and multiple neurofibromas or neurilemmomas. NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 1 (generalized neurofibromatosis) accounts for approximately 95% of cases, although multiple additional subtypes (e.g., NEUROFIBROMATOSIS 2, neurofibromatosis 3, etc.) have been described.

Spondylolytic fractures. (1/301)A method is described whereby fractures of the neural arch similar to those in spondylolysis are produced experimentally. The forces, bending moments and displacements required to initiate the fractures are given; The mechanical aspects in the aetiology of spondylolysis are explained by a simplified two-dimensional force analysis. (+info)
Spondyloptosis and multiple-level spondylolysis. (2/301)An unusual case of a combination of multiple bilateral spondylolyses (L2, 3 and 4), spondylolisthesis at L3/4, spondyloptosis at L4/5 and sacralization of L5 in a teenage female is described. The patient had severely increasing lower back pain radiating to the left lower limb. Radiography identified the abnormalities and myelography revealed complete obstruction and compression of the thecal sac at the L4/5 level. The case was treated surgically by posterior decompression, corpectomy and fusion in a three-stage operation. The follow-up was extended to 2 years with no complications. No similar case has previously been reported. (+info)
The assessment of appropriate indications for laminectomy. (3/301)We have developed criteria to determine the appropriate indications for lumbar laminectomy, using the standard procedure developed at the RAND corporation and the University of California at Los Angeles (RAND-UCLA). A panel of five surgeons and four physicians individually assessed 1000 hypothetical cases of sciatica, back pain only, symptoms of spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, miscellaneous indications or the need for repeat laminectomy. For the first round each member of the panel used a scale ranging from 1 (extremely inappropriate) to 9 (extremely appropriate). After discussion and condensation of the results into three categories laminectomy was considered appropriate in 11% of the 1000 theoretical scenarios, equivocal in 26% and inappropriate in 63%. There was some variation between the six categories of malalignment, but full agreement in 64% of the hypothetical cases. We applied these criteria retrospectively to the records of 196 patients who had had surgical treatment for herniated discs in one Swiss University hospital. We found that 48% of the operations were for appropriate indications, 29% for equivocal reasons and that 23% were inappropriate. The RAND-UCLA method is a feasible, useful and coherent approach to the study of the indications for laminectomy and related procedures, providing a number of important insights. Our conclusions now require validation by carefully designed prospective clinical trials, such as those which are used for new medical techniques. (+info)
MR imaging for early complications of transpedicular screw fixation. (4/301)This series comprises ten patients treated with transpedicular screw fixation, who suffered early postoperative problems such as radicular pain or motor weakness. Besides plain radiographs, all patients were also evaluated with MR imaging. Three patients were reoperated for either repositioning or removal of the screws. MR images, especially T1-weighted ones, were very helpful for visualizing the problem and verifying the positions of the screws. In cases of wide areas of signal void around the screws, the neighboring axial MR images at either side, which have fewer artifacts, gave more information about the screws and the vertebrae. (+info)
Degenerative spondylolisthesis. Developmental or acquired? (5/301)Degenerative spondylolisthesis is four times more common in women than in men. Although this gender difference has long been recognised there has been no explanation for it. We have examined the radiographs and CT scans of 118 patients over the age of 55 years and of a control group under the age of 46 years. Our findings confirmed the presence of more sagittally-orientated facet joints in patients with degenerative spondylolisthesis but did not show that the gender difference can be explained by the morphology of the facet joint. Furthermore, we conclude that the increased angle of the facet joint is the result of arthritic remodelling and not the primary cause of degenerative spondylolisthesis. It is more likely to be due to loss of soft-tissue resilience with subsequent failure of the facet joints which are acting as the last restraints to subluxation. (+info)
Ehlers-Danlos syndrome associated with multiple spinal meningeal cysts--case report. (6/301)A 40-year-old female with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome was admitted because of a large pelvic mass. Radiological examination revealed multiple spinal meningeal cysts. The first operation through a laminectomy revealed that the cysts originated from dilated dural sleeves containing nerve roots. Packing of dilated sleeves was inadequate. Finally the cysts were oversewed through a laparotomy. The cysts were reduced, but the postoperative course was complicated by poor wound healing and diffuse muscle atrophy. Ehlers-Danlos syndrome associated with spinal cysts may be best treated by endoscopic surgery. (+info)
Traumatic L5-S1 spondylolisthesis: report of three cases and a review of the literature. (7/301)The literature reports that traumatic spondylolisthesis of L5 is an uncommon lesion. The authors report their experience of three cases of this particular fracture-dislocation of the lumbosacral spine. They stress the importance of certain radiographic signs in the diagnosis: namely, the presence of unilateral multiple fracture of the transverse lumbar apophysis. As far as the treatment is concerned, they state the need for an open reduction and an internal segmental fixation by posterior approach. A preoperative MRI study appears mandatory in order to evaluate the integrity of the L5-S1 disc. In the event of a traumatic disruption of the disc, they state the importance of posterior interbody fusion by means of a strut graft carved from the ilium or, in case of iliac wing fracture (which is not uncommon in these patients), by means of interbody cages. (+info)
Traumatic spondylolisthesis of the axis: treatment rationale based on the stability of the different fracture types. (8/301)Thirty-nine consecutive patients, 22 male and 17 female with an average age of 37.6 years, with traumatic spondylolisthesis of the axis were reviewed. The cause of injury in 75% of the patients was a road traffic accident. The fractures were classified according to Effendi et al., the type II fractures were further divided into three subgroups: flexion, extension and listhesis injuries. There were 10 type I (25.7%) and 29 type II fractures (74.4%); of these, 12 (30.8%) were classified as flexion-type, 2 (5.1%) as extension-type and 15 (38.5%) as listhesis-type. We did not identify any case of type III injury. Overall, 43.5% of the patients had sustained a significant head or chest trauma, with the highest incidence for type II listhesis injuries. Significant neurological deficits occurred in four patients (10.3%); in all four,the fracture was classified as a type II listhesis. All ten type I injuries were successfully treated with a cervical orthosis. Ten of the 12 type II flexion injuries demonstrated significant angulation. Two were treated with internal stabilisation, in seven with a halo device and one with a minerva plaster of Paris (PoP). Healing was uneventful in all ten patients. For the remaining two stable type II flexion injuries, application of a hard collar was adequate, as was the case for the two stable type II extension injuries. Six of the 15 type II spondylolisthesis injuries underwent primary internal stabilisation, and healing was uneventful in all cases. In four (44.4%) of the nine injuries that were primarily treated with a halo device/minerva PoP, secondary operative stabilisation had to be performed. The classification of Effendi et al. provides a complete description of the different fractures. However, further distinction of the type II injuries regarding their stability is mandatory. Type II spondylolisthesis injuries are unstable, with a high number of associated injuries, a great potential for neurological compromise and significant complications associated with non-operative treatment. The majority of type II extension and type II flexion injuries can be successfully treated with nonrigid external immobilisation. (+info)

Spondylolisthesis - Physio Works...
Congenital or dysplastic spondylolisthesis has an early childhood onset as mentioned above.. Isthmic spondylolisthesis is more prevalent in the pre-teen and adolescent years in the athletic youth populations. Sports that involve hyperextension and rotation. eg gymnastics, fast bowling (cricket), hurdling, tennis, wrestling and other throwing or overhead racquet sports are higher risks. Spondylolysis (back stress fracture) initially occurs and about 50% of cases slip to develop into a spondylolisthesis.. Most isthmic spondylolisthesis stabilise at skeletal maturity. The fractures themselves may not heal but it is thought that the muscles controlling the spondylolisthesis provide sufficient functional control to avoid painful symptoms.. Degenerative spondylolisthesis is more common with advancing age. The vertebrae slip forwards without a fracture present. The slippage is related to chronic spinal segment instability due co-existing pathologies such as degenerative disc disease or facet joint ...
MRI alone may not be enough to accurately diagnose degenerative spondylolisthesis - Spinal News International
In Sensitivity of MRI in the diagnosis of L4-5 degenerative spondyloisthesis, a retrospective imaging study, 103 patients diagnosed with L4-5 DS with SLFE films as well as supine MRI were evaluated. Exclusion criteria included previous lumbar surgery, trauma, tumour, infection, spondylolysis, adjacent spondylolisthesis, scoliosis and imaging dates over one year apart.. The researchers found that the conventional supine MRI had a sensitivity of 78% for detecting degenerative spondylolisthesis compared to 100% for flexion-extension and 98% for lateral standing films. Significant differences in slip distance, slip percentage and disc height between lateral radiographs and MRIs were also observed. Patients with mobile degenerative spondylolisthesis were more likely to have a greater slip percentage. The researchers defined mobile as a slip reduction of 3% or more, supine versus standing.. Because MRIs are conventionally done when the patient is lying on their back, with no axial load, there is ...
cervical spondylolisthesis from car accident? - (#37643) - Community Advice
From my research, spondylolisthesis usally occurs in the lumbar region. I guess one learns something new everyday lol. My understanding of this condition (not sure about cervical) is that about 7% of the US population are born with a predisposition to a weakened spine...usually in or around l5/s1 or l5/l4. Activities like gymnastics or football btwn the ages of 5-13 can cause pars defects and fractures to occur. Which can result in the varying degrees of spondylolisthesis.

TY - JOUR. T1 - Evaluation and surgical treatment of high-grade isthmic dysplastic spondylolisthesis.. AU - Lenke, Lawrence G.. AU - Bridwell, Keith H.. PY - 2003. Y1 - 2003. N2 - In children and young adults who seek medical treatment for high-grade isthmic dysplastic spondylolisthesis, common clinical symptoms are referable to the lumbosacral spine and/or the lower extremities. Pain in the lumbosacral spine may be secondary to altered lumbosacral alignment and biomechanics. It also may be caused by malalignment of the entire spinal-pelvic axis as a result of anterior sagittal imbalance. Lower extremity radiculopathies involving the L5 nerve root(s) may be present, and in severe forms of spondylolisthesis crisis, marked entrapment of the cauda equina at L5-S1 may occur. High-grade isthmic dysplastic spondylolisthesis are treated surgically and should include appropriate central and foraminal decompressions at the L5-S1 level, followed by lumbosacral fusion. Partial reduction aiming at improving ...

Lumbar spondylolisthesis is the most common location for vertebral slippage to occur. The usual location affected is L5, followed by L4, although almost any vertebral level can demonstrate this structural change in far less common circumstances.
Spondylolisthesis - Jackson Neurosurgery Clinic
Contact Us. Overview This condition occurs when a lumbar vertebra slips out of place. It slides forward, distorting the shape of your spine. This may compress the nerves in the spinal canal. The nerves that exit the foramen (open spaces on the sides of your vertebrae) may also be compressed. These compressed nerves can cause pain and other problems.. Common Causes Spondylolisthesis has a variety of causes. In children, it is often due to a birth defect in that area of the spine. Some people develop this condition because of an overuse injury called spondylolysis. This is a stress fracture of the vertebral bone. In adults, arthritis and the loss of disc elasticity that results from aging are the most common causes of spondylolisthesis.. Other Causes Less commonly, spondylolisthesis can result from a sudden injury that leads to a broken vertebra. Diseases or tumors that weaken the spine can also result in spondylolisthesis.. Symptoms Symptoms vary from person to person. Many people who have this ...

Spondylolisthesis | BMUS: The Burden of Musculoskeletal Diseases in the United States
Spondylolisthesis is a forward slippage of one vertebral body over the one below. There are a variety of causes and classification schemes, but most can be described as either degenerative, caused by chronic inter-segmental instability involving degenerative disc and facet joints or isthmic, caused by developmental defects involving the posterior arch of the vertebra. Degenerative spondylolisthesis usually affects older patients, more frequently involves women at the L4/L5 vertebra level, and has relatively small slips (,30%) with associated stenosis. In contrast, isthmic spondylolisthesis usually affects patients younger than 50 years, primarily involves the L5 vertebra level, and may have quite severe progression (,50-100% slip) and associated structural abnormalities, including kyphosis.. ...

Spondylolisthesis | Childrens Healthcare of Atlanta
Spondylolisthesis is a condition in which one vertebra is out of place. The most common form of spondylolisthesis in children is isthmic spondylolisthesis, or pars defect. A birth defect or trauma, like a stress fracture, can cause this to happen. Symptoms include low back pain, instability of the spinal column, spinal cord compression and muscle spasms in the back of the thighs.. Most children who receive medicine, physical therapy and a doctors supervision will improve without the need for surgery. In most cases, there is no reason to limit activities during this period. If surgery is recommended, surgeons might remove a part of the vertebrae, realign the spine and fuse it. This relieves pressure on the nerves or spinal cord and helps correct deformities. Surgery is used only for patients whose symptoms worsen or progress. ...

For younger people, the most common cause of spondylolisthesis is a fracture or instability caused by repetitive stress and excessive activity placed on the spine. Fractures in adolescence may go undetected and not create issues until the discs begin to move.. . In adults, degenerative spondylolisthesis can occur without injury. As we get older, general wear and tear begins to take its toll on the spine. The discs that cushion movement become dry and brittle, and they begin to flatten. This disc degeneration can lead to degenerative spondylolisthesis (DS). The disc above, with the looser ligaments of the spine that are worn with age and no longer supporting it, begins to slide forward and over top of the disc below.. . Age and gender are risk factors for degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis. Women over 50 are more likely to develop this condition. This may be related to fractures occurring due to osteoporosis. Similarly, African Americans are more likely to develop lumbar ...

There are many potential treatment avenues for spondylolisthesis depending on the location and cause of the injury. Most cases can be treated with non-surgical methods including muscle relaxants, anti-inflammatory medication, rest, and physical therapy. Epidural steroid injections can be useful for reducing inflammation and easing pain as well.. A spondylolisthesis or spondylolysis back brace may also be recommended with a Boston overlap brace to limit spinal movement as the fracture heals.. Spondylolisthesis and spondylolysis surgery is typically only recommended for severe slippage that is progressively worsening with back pain that isnt improved with conservative treatment.. Surgery may involve directly repairing a defect in the vertebra and spinal fusion, usually between the fifth lumbar vertebra and sacrum. Spinal fusion can alleviate back pain, prevent further slippage, and stabilize the spine by preventing movement of this segment of the spine.. If you are dealing with the pain of ...

Spondylolisthesis is usually fixed. L3-L4, L4-L5 and L5-S1 vertebrae are most commonly affected.. Spondylolisthesis often develops in adolescents and young people who are engaged in sports and have suffered even minimal injury; the reason is that the congenital pathology weakens the lumbar vertebrae in the interarticular area (spondylolysis). Fractures can easily occur at the site of the defect; the separation of the resulting bone fragments leads to subluxation. Spondylolisthesis can develop after minimal injury in patients > 60 years of age with osteoarthritis.. ...

Back doctor explains treatment for spondylolisthesis, a common cause of back pain - Dr Lumbago
It is possible to have a mild or early case of spondylolisthesis and have no symptoms like pain or stiffness, and be unaware that the condition exists. When spondylolisthesis symptoms do appear it is most commonly low back pain that develops across the lower back at and slightly above the belt line, and it is easily aggravated by any exaggerated forward or backward bending of the lower back (as when brushing the teeth in the AM when the back is still stiff).. The most common complaint of someone with spondylolisthesis is chronic and intense lower back pain, often radiating into the buttocks, especially after prolonged standing on a hard surface, doing work that requires backward bending of the low back and wearing high heels. Reduced range of movement of the low back can make walking difficult and painful. Tightness or spasm of the hamstring muscles also occur, along with an exaggerated and deep forward curvature of the lumbar spine (swayback) are other common findings associated with ...

One of the most important sequelae affecting long-term results is adjacent-segment degeneration (ASD) after posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF). Although several reports have described the incidence rate, there have been no reports of repeated ASD. The purpose of this report was to describe 1 case of repeated ASD after PLIF. A 62-year-old woman with L-4 degenerative spondylolisthesis underwent PLIF at L4-5. At the second operation, L3-4 PLIF was performed for L-3 degenerative spondylolisthesis 6 years after the primary operation. At the third operation, L2-3 PLIF was performed for L-2 degenerative spondylolisthesis 1.5 years after the primary operation. Vertebral collapse of L-1 was detected 1 year after the third operation, and the collapse had progressed. At the fourth operation, 3 years after the third operation, vertebral column resection of L-1 and replacement of titanium mesh cages with pedicle screw fixation between T-4 and L-5 was performed. Although the patients symptoms resolved ...

Duncan Chiropractic Group: November 2011
Low back pain can arise from many conditions, one of which is a mouthful: spondylolisthesis. The term was coined in 1854 from the Greek words, spondylo for vertebrae and olisthesis for slip. These slips most commonly occur in the low back, 90% at L5 and 9% at L4. According to www.spinehealth.com and others, the most common type of spondylolisthesis is called isthmic spondylolisthesis, which is a condition that includes a defect in the back part of the vertebra in an area called the pars interarticularis, which is the part of the vertebra that connects the front half (vertebral body) to the back half (the posterior arch). This can occur on one, or both sides, with or without a slip or shift forwards, which is then called spondylolysis. In isthmic spondylolisthesis, the incidence rate is about 5-7% of the general population favoring men over women 3:1. Debate continues as to whether this occurs as a result genetic predisposition verses environmental or acquired at some point early in ...

Spondylolysis & Spondylolisthesis
The most common cause of low back pain in adolescent athletes that can be seen on X-ray is a stress fracture in one of the bones that make up the spinal column. This condition is called spondylolysis (spon-dee-low-lye-sis).. If the stress fracture weakens the bone so much that it is unable to maintain its proper position, the vertebra can start to shift out of place. When one vertebrae slips forward on the adjacent vertebrae the condition is called spondylolisthesis. If too much slippage occurs, the bones may begin to press on nerves. This condition can be the source of back pain, leg pain and other symptoms. Surgery may be necessary to for spondylolisthesis treatment.. ...

Computer-assisted Minimally Invasive Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion without C-arm Fluoroscopy. - Semantic Scholar
Computer-assisted spinal surgery is becoming more common; however, this is the first technical report to describe the technique of minimally invasive spinal posterior lumbar interbody fusion (MIS-PLIF) without using C-arm fluoroscopy. The authors report 2 years of follow-up of a 49-year-old female patient with L4 degenerative spondylolisthesis. The patient suffered from low back pain and intermittent claudication for more than 6 years. The authors performed computer-assisted MIS-PLIF without C-arm fluoroscopy. Instead, O-arm® navigation, the use of which reduces radiation exposure to patients as well as others in the operating room, was employed. Surgery was successful, and correct lumbar alignment was maintained. She had neither neurological deficits nor low back pain at her 12-month final follow-up. In conclusion, computer-assisted MIS-PLIF without C-arm fluoroscopy is a useful technique that reduces radiation exposure to the surgeon and operating room staff.

Transforaminal Lumbar Interbody Fusion TLIF Houston, TX | Minimally Invasive Fusion
Transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) is a minimally invasive fusion of the vertebrae of the lumbar region. Dr. Ryan Stuckey treats degenerative disc disease, scoliosis, spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis, spine fractures, spine infections and spine tumors in Houston, TX.
Operative treatment of isthmic spondylolisthesis lacks a definitive consensus, with many fusion techniques having been used in these patients, including ALIF, posterior lumbar interbody fusion, transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion, posterolateral fusion, and circumferential fusion. Significant research has been done to determine the superiority of each technique with still no consensus.2,3 Circumferential fusion in the form of ALIF with posterolateral fusion produces the highest fusion rates but also results in the most complications.3,15 Strube et al16 compared the clinical results of patients who underwent fusion with stand-alone ALIF and those of patients receiving ALIF with pedicle screw fixation and found that pain assessed through both visual analog scales and Oswestry Low Back Pain Disability Index improved more significantly among patients treated with stand-alone ALIF, which questions the clinical relevance of radiographic fusion in patients postoperative functional improvement. ...

Spondylolisthesis Blog: 2010
There are several types of Spondylolisthesis, and Im going to focus on two. The first of of which is traumatic. While you would think that the motorcycle accident could have caused it, it seems unlikely that it did. Most likely it is of the isthmic variety. Approximately 4% of the population is born with a propensity for spondylolysis (not to be confused with spondylosis)--a fracture in the pars interarticularis usually caused by a genetic weakness in that particular segment. This is the bony part that connects your vertebrae to your spine. Think if it as outstretched arms that wrap around the actual spinal cord. When this is broken there is less to support the vertebrae and prevent anterior displacement. In the majority of those who are diagnosed with this, it usually an incidental finding and is not the source of pain. It is only when the vertebrae slips forward and pinches the nerve roots leading to the legs that it becomes an issue. While there are several grades, usually only grade II or ...

Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion - Macspine
Posterior lumber interbody fusion is an operation on the spine to remove bone from the back of the spine to relieve pressure on spinal nerves ( compression of the nerves can cause pain into your buttocks or pain into your legs) and then join two or more adjacent vertebra together. The part of the operation to remove the pressure from the nerves is called a decompression. The fusion portion of the operation is required where a surgeon thinks that the amount of bone that will have to be removed to get pressure off the nerves will lead to abnormal movement of the bones (instability), where the condition causing pressure on the nerves involves movement of one vertebra on the other (spondylolisthesis) or where narrowing of the disc between the two vertebra is leading to pressure on the nerves where they exit the site of the spine (the spinal foramen) and this pressure needs to be relieved by increasing the disc height to open up the foramen.. The operation is done under a general anaesthetic. Once ...

A Rare Case of Traumatic Lateral Translationof Lumbosacral Spine with Nerve Root Avulsion | Journal of Orthopaedic Case Reports
Introduction: Traumatic lumbar spondylolisthesis, though a rare lesion, is frequently noted in patients with multiple traumatic injuries sustained in a high-velocity trauma like a road traffic accident. Case Report: Here, we report a case of traumatic Biplanar translational injury at L5-S1 level with neurological deficit in a 22-year male with motor vehicle accident. Open reduction, decompression, and fusion with rigid fixation were achieved and spine alignment was restored, but the neurological recovery remained uncertain. Conclusion: These are highly unstable injuries with complete disruption of posterior ligamentous integrity, requiring careful reduction and thorough decompression and stable but rigid posterior fixation and fusion.

You will be given instructions about when to stop eating and drinking before your admission.. Several X-rays of your back will be taken during surgery to make sure that the correct spinal level is being fused, and also to optimise the positioning of the screws and cage. It is critical that you inform us if you are pregnant or think you could possibly be pregnant, as X-rays may be harmful to the unborn child.. You will wake up with a catheter (tube) in your bladder, and a drip in your arm. These will be removed around 24 hours after surgery. It is important that you get up and walk around either on the evening of your surgery or the next day. You will need to wear stockings to prevent blood clots after your surgery.. A CT scan will be performed the day after surgery to check the position of the screws and cage. You will be fitted with a custom-made lumbar brace which you will need to wear whenever you are walking or sitting for 3 months after surgery.. You will be in hospital for between 3 and 5 ...
