STUDY DESIGN Evaluation by simulation of screw insertion using fine-cut computed tomographic (CT) scans and screw trajectory software. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility and optimal trajectory of the occipital condylar screw. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA To the best of our knowledge, no large series examining the feasibility and optimal trajectory of(More)

Study Design: Multicenter retrospective case series and review of the literature. Objective: To determine the rate of esophageal perforations following anterior cervical spine surgery. Methods: As part of an AOSpine series on rare complications, a retrospective cohort study was conducted among 21 high-volume surgical centers to identify esophageal(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Although diagnostic lumbar selective nerve root blocks are often used to confirm the pain-generating nerve root level, the reported accuracy of these blocks has been variable and their usefulness is controversial. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the accuracy of diagnostic lumbar selective nerve root blocks to analyze(More)
Infection of human cells with adenovirus serotype 12 (Ad12) induces metaphase fragility of four, and apparently only four, chromosomal loci. Surprisingly, each of these four loci corresponds to a cluster of genes encoding a small abundant structural RNA: the RNU1 and RNU2 loci contain tandemly repeated genes encoding U1 and U2 small nuclear RNAs (snRNAs),(More)
BACKGROUND Surgery for symptomatic spinal metastases aims to improve quality of life, pain, function, and stability. Complications in the postoperative period are not uncommon; therefore, it is important to select appropriate patients who are likely to benefit the greatest from surgery. Previous studies have focused on predicting survival rather than(More)
Study Design Retrospective review. Objective The objective of this study is to describe the natural history of neurologic recovery after anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). Methods Patients between 18 and 80 years of age, diagnosed with cervical radiculopathy, who underwent single-level ACDF and were followed for a minimum of 2 years were(More)
OBJECTIVE The incidence of suboccipital spinal metastases is rare but has increased given cancer patients' longer life expectancies. Operative treatment in this region is often challenging because of limited fixation points due to tumor lysis, as well as adjacent neural and vascular anatomy. Few studies have reported on this population of cancer patients.(More)
BACKGROUND Increased awareness regarding the importance of the sagittal spinal profile has led to more aggressive correction of sagittal malalignment. The utilization trends of pedicle subtraction osteotomy (PSO) for sagittal plane correction in spinal deformity surgery have not been well characterized. METHODS A commercially available database(More)
STUDY DESIGN Retrospective study. PURPOSE To identify the prevalence of severe headache occurring after cervical posterior surgical fixation (PSF) and to evaluate the clinical and radiological findings associated with severe headache after surgery. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE Several studies have reported on the axial pain after cervical surgery. However, to(More)
