Degenerative spondylolisthesis (DS) is a common condition of the aging spine, but the underlying pathomechanisms remain controversial. Most previous studies focused on the role of facet-joint alignment and reported a pronounced sagittal orientation. This, however, may also be a secondary feature to the slippage. This study analyzed several radiologic(More)
OBJECT Both anterior cervical discectomy with fusion (ACDF) and anterior cervical corpectomy with fusion (ACCF) are used to treat cervical spondylotic myelopathy; however, there is currently no evidence for the superiority of one over the other in terms of patient-rated outcomes. This comparative effectiveness study compared the patient-rated and(More)
The study investigates lower lumbar segments with posterior vertebral shifts (retrolisthesis) with respect to the orientation of facet joints, disc height, lordosis of the lumbar spine, and orientation of vertebral endplates. Standing lumbar radiographs as well as CT and/or MRI investigations of 69 patients were analyzed. Data from patients with(More)
In a prospective observational study we compared the two-year outcome of lumbar fusion by a simple technique using translaminar screws (n = 57) with a more extensive method using transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion and pedicular screw fixation (n = 63) in consecutive patients with degenerative disease of the lumbar spine. Outcome was assessed using the(More)
A prospective study of 246 patients who received multimodal intraoperative monitoring during cervical spine surgery between March 2000 and December 2005. To determine the sensitivity and specificity of MIOM techniques used to monitor spinal cord and nerve root function during cervical spine surgery. It is appreciated that complication rate of cervical spine(More)
A prospective study of 1,017 patients who received MIOM during spine surgery procedures between March 2000 and December 2005. To determine the sensitivity and specificity of MIOM techniques used to monitor spinal cord and nerve roots function during spine surgery. MIOM has become a widely used method of monitoring neural function during spine surgery.(More)
Studies comparing the relative merits of microdiscectomy and standard discectomy report conflicting results, depending on the outcome measure of interest. Most trials are small, and few have employed validated, multidimensional patient-orientated outcome measures, considered essential in outcomes research. In the present study, data were collected(More)
OBJECT The contemporary assessment of spine surgical outcome primarily relies on patient-centered reports of symptoms and function. Such measures are considered to reduce bias compared with traditional surgeon-based outcome ratings. This study examined the agreement between patients' and surgeons' ratings of outcome 1 year after spine surgery. METHODS The(More)
A prospective study was performed on 217 patients who received MIOM during corrective surgery of spinal deformities between March 2000 and December 2005. Aim is to determine the sensitivity and specificity of MIOM techniques used to monitor spinal cord and nerve root function during corrective spine surgery. MIOM is becoming an increasingly used method of(More)
