AIM To assess the clinical outcomes and compare the segmental range of motion (ROM) at the implanted L4-L5 level, the cranial and caudal adjacent levels, and the ROM of the whole lumbar spine after semi-rigid lumbar fusion with 2 different devices. MATERIAL AND METHODS Patients with neurogenic claudication, due to grade 1 spondylolisthesis and spinal(More)
OBJECTIVE Posture induced common peroneal nerve (CPN) palsy is usually produced during the prolonged squatting or habitual leg crossing while seated, especially in Asian culture and is manifested by the onset of foot drop. Because of its similarity to discogenic foot drop, patients may be diagnosed with a lumbar disc disorder, and in some patients, surgeons(More)
Synovial cysts of the cervical spine, although they occur infrequently, may cause acute radiculopathy or myelopathy. Here, we report a case of a cervical synovial cyst presenting as acute myelopathy after manual stretching. A 68-year-old man presented with gait disturbance, decreased touch senses, and increased sensitivity to pain below T12 level. These(More)
