BACKGROUND Despite an elevated obesity risk in people with spinal cord injury (SCI), investigation on the effects of age, obesity predictors, and injury related factors is yet to be unknown within the SCI population. METHODS Obesity predictors were measured in 162 patients. RESULTS 27.5% of the participants were overweight and 5.6% of them were obese.(More)
Schwann cell transplantation is well known to induce repair in the injured spinal cord which disables millions of injured patients throughout the world. An ideal route of delivering the grafted Schwann cells to the spinal cord should neither cause more injury nor reinitiate inflammatory events and also provide a favorable milieu to the grafted cells.

STUDY DESIGN A cross-sectional case-control study was designed to compare the sagittal alignment of lumbosacral regions in two groups of patients suffering from low back pain, one with intervertebral disc pathologies and one without. PURPOSE To evaluate the correlation between lumbosacral sagittal alignment and disc degeneration. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE(More)

Background: Spinal cord injury (SCI) is a devastating neurological disorder causing various symptoms depending on the location, extent and degree of the damage. Granulocyte-colony stimulating factor (G-CSF) is a major growth factor in the activation and differentiation of granulocytes. This cytokine has been widely and safely employed clinically in(More)
BACKGROUND Currarino's syndrome is an autosomal dominant hereditary disease known by the triad of anorectal stenosis, anterior sacral defect, and a presacral mass that is most often an anterior sacral meningocele. Actually this syndrome could remain asymptomatic in many instances, but symptomatic patients might present with constipation as the sole(More)
Head injury is one of the leading causes of death and disability in traumatic accidents. Post-operative contralateral epidural hematomas after surgery for acute subdural hematoma seem to be rare. In this case, expansion and spontaneous resolution of a fractural epidural hematoma contralateral to the side of acute subdural hematoma is presented. The(More)
Spinal fusion permanently connects two or more vertebrae in spine to improve stability, correct a deformity or reduce pain by immobilizing the vertebrae through pedicle screw fixation. Pedicle screws should be inserted very carefully to prevent possible irrecoverable damages to the spinal cord. Surgeons use CT/fluoroscopic images to find how to insert the(More)
PURPOSE The accuracy of pedicle screw placement during image-guided spine surgery (IGSS) can be characterized by estimating the target registration error (TRE). The major factors that influence TRE were identified, minimized, and verified with in vitro experiments. MATERIALS AND METHODS Computed-tomography-compatible markers are placed over anatomical(More)
