BACKGROUND Upper cervical spine fractures are traumatic injuries typically associated with high-energy trauma and have a high morbidity and mortality rate. We describe a case of upper cervical spine fracture occurring due to high-energy trauma that resulted in significant myositis ossificans (MO) of the longus coli muscle. STUDY DESIGN Case Report and(More)
STUDY DESIGN A cross-sectional analysis. OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to determine whether the surgical treatment for scoliosis due to Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) has decreased over a recent 11-year period, specifically, after the wide acceptance of glucocorticoid treatment for DMD. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA DMD can result in a flaccid(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective review. OBJECTIVES Large compressive pseudomeningocele causing a major neurologic deficit is a very rare complication that is not well described in the existing literature. METHODS Institutional review board consent was obtained to study 2552 consecutive extradural spinal surgical cases performed by a single senior spinal(More)
UNLABELLED Femoral neck fractures occur in approximately 6,000 of young adults annually (ages 18-49) (1). Of these, a high-energy traumatic event is the typical cause. Although medications and chronic diseases have been implicated as confounding causes of hip fractures, clinicians should have a high index of suspicion for an oncologic etiology of hip(More)
Femoroacetabular impingements (FAIs), specifically cam type and pincer type, continue to be accepted as causes of intra-articular hip pathology and sources of hip pain. Reports of other causes of hip impingement including extra-articular causes have surfaced recently. One structure of importance is the anterior inferior iliac spine (AIIS) due to its(More)
BACKGROUND Spinal fusion surgery for the treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is increasing. Health systems and surgeons are decreasing hospital length of stay (LOS) to decrease costs. The purpose of this study was to review the contribution of an accelerated discharge protocol on the total cost of a single episode of care related to the(More)
STUDY DESIGN A retrospective review. OBJECTIVE Isthmic spondylolisthesis (ISY) is a common orthopedic condition. Our objective was to identify trends in the surgical management of adult ISY in the United States and to evaluate trends in the surgical techniques utilized. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Various surgical approaches have been described for ISY(More)
INTRODUCTION Longer-term outcomes of patients with geriatric type II odontoid fracture nonunion remain unclear. METHODS Thirty-four consecutive geriatric patients (>70 years old) with minimally displaced (<50% displacement) type II odontoid fractures were treated 24 hours a day for 12 weeks with rigid collar immobilization between the years 2003 and 2011.(More)
Study Design Case report. Objectives Symptomatic triple-region spinal stenosis (TRSS), defined as spinal stenosis in three different regions of the spine, is extremely rare. To our knowledge, treatment with simultaneous decompressive surgery is not described in the literature. We report a case of a patient with TRSS who was treated successfully with(More)
