STUDY DESIGN This is a retrospective review of clinical records for evidence of paraplegia specifically resulting from segmental vessel ligation during anterior spinal surgery. OBJECTIVES To determine the precise risk rate, and to potentially identify risk factors. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Although many authors have alluded to this risk, the exact(More)
The purpose of this study was to document the medical and surgical complications of anterior spine surgery in children and to identify risk factors for complications. A retrospective chart review was conducted of 599 anterior procedures (24 anterior only, 300 staged anterior/posterior, 175 combined anterior/posterior procedures) performed between 1967 and(More)
A 13-year-old girl with rigid congenital thoracic lordosis and congenital scoliosis was treated by a three-stage procedure of anterior transthoracic closing wedge osteotomies, posterior osteotomies of the laminar synostosis, correction of the deformity by sublaminar wires pulled back to a kyphotic bent Luque rod, and a later "pulling-out" procedure on the(More)
PURPOSE We investigated whether a diagnosis of bladder outflow obstruction could be established from pressure flow analysis of a void initiated by involuntary detrusor overactivity. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 79 men with lower urinary tract symptoms were identified prospectively. In each subject 2 sequential pressure flow studies were performed(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine, in a prospective study, whether detrusor pressure (p(det.Qmax)) and maximum urinary flow rate (Q(max)) measurements obtained after filling to maximum cystometric capacity (MCC) differ from those obtained with filling restricted to average voided volume (V(void)), as standard protocols for pressure flow studies (PFS) mandate bladder(More)
OBJECTIVES To investigate the association between detrusor after-contraction and urodynamic parameters in a cohort of patients undergoing urodynamic studies by ambulatory monitoring. METHODS All symptomatic adult female patients with non-neurogenic lower urinary tract dysfunction having ambulatory monitoring over the period January 1998 to January 2014(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether there are differences in pressure and flow measurements between conventional cystometry (CONV) and ambulatory urodynamic monitoring (AMB) in women with overactive bladder syndrome and urinary incontinence. MATERIALS AND METHODS Retrospective study which included female subjects who underwent both CONV (with saline filling(More)
