BACKGROUND CONTEXT Anterior decompression and fusion (ADF) for ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL) is technically demanding and associated with complications. Although various factors affecting clinical outcome have been investigated in posterior decompression, prognostic factors of ADF remain unclear. PURPOSE The purpose of the(More)
BACKGROUND CONTEXT Laminoplasty is a major surgical method used to treat patients with cervical ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL). Sometimes, patients with cervical OPLL demonstrate postoperative kyphosis despite sufficient preoperative lordosis. Recently, the impact of T1 slope has emerged as a predictor of kyphotic alignment(More)
OBJECTIVE To compare the clinical characteristics of cervical spine trauma in patients with ankylosing spondylitis (AS) and cervical ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament (OPLL) with those of a control group. METHODS A total of 124 patients with cervical spine trauma from January 2004 to December 2013 were reviewed. Fourteen patients were(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective review of adult spinal deformity patients in a multiethnic database. OBJECTIVE To investigate the role of ethnicity on recruitment of compensatory mechanisms for sagittal spinal deformity. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA While the impacts of age, sex, and pelvic morphology on the ability to compensate for sagittal malalignment have(More)
Subependymomas are slow-growing, benign neoplasms that are rarely found in the spinal cord. Because of the differences in the treatment plans, it might be very helpful for neurosurgeons to intraoperatively establish a diagnosis of spinal subependymoma, differentiated from other spinal intramedullary tumors. In this study, we analyzed frozen sections of(More)
