BACKGROUND CONTEXT Although stand-alone cages were advocated to be superior to plate-cage construct (PCC) because of comparable clinical outcomes and fewer plate-related complications, cage dislocation and subsidence were frequently mentioned in multilevel fusion. There are some concerns about whether these issues can be effectively prevented in multilevel(More)
BACKGROUND CONTEXT The treatment of adolescent congenital deformity (late-diagnosed congenital deformity) is still unknown. The best candidates for hemivertebra excision are young patients, typically between 4 and 6 years of age. Partial excision may be feasible for older children. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to assess the effect of unilateral(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the clinical use of kinetic magnetic resonance imaging (kMRI) in spinal degenerative diseases. METHODS A systematic search of PubMed, EMBASE and ISI databases for articles that had been published between January 1978 and February 2013 concerning patients who had undergone kMRI for spinal problems was performed. All selected patients(More)
The purpose of this study was to describe the clinical features of noncontiguous cervical degenerative disc disease (cDDD), investigate the efficacy and complications of a stand-alone anchored spacer (SAAS) for patients with noncontiguous cDDD, and present radiologic analysis of the intermediate segment (IS) after skip-level fusion. Nineteen consecutive(More)
STUDY DESIGN Numerical techniques were used to study the vibration response of idiopathic scoliosis patients with single thoracic curve. OBJECTIVE To analyze the dynamic characteristics of the idiopathic scoliotic spine under the whole-body vibration condition. The influence of the upper body mass was also studied. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The(More)
Solid organ transplant recipients are at increased risk for Aspergillus infections. However, the cases of Aspergillus spondylodiscitis are rare and mostly resulted from the hematogenous spread of invasive pulmonary Aspergillosis. Here, we report a case of primary spondylodiscitis in a liver transplant recipient. Six months after transplantation, a chronic(More)
PURPOSE To study the effective recovery of the quadriceps femoris by spinal ventral root cross-anastomosis in rats. METHODS End-to-end anastomosis was performed between the left L(1) and L(3) ventral roots using autogenous nerve graft, and the right L(1) and L(3) roots were left intact. In control animals, the left L(3) ventral root was cut and shortened,(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the effect of asymmetric tension on idiopathic scoliosis (IS) and to understand its pathogenic mechanism. METHODS The rodent model of scoliosis was established using Sprague-Dawley rats with left rib-tethering from T6 to T12 , tail and shoulder amputation, and high-cage feeding. Vertebrae epiphyseal cartilage plates were harvested(More)
