Bone mineral density scans are currently interpreted based on an average score of the entire proximal femur. Improvements in technology now allow us to measure bone density in specific regions of the proximal femur. The study attempts to explain the pathophysiology of neck of femur (NOF) and intertrochanteric/basi-cervical (IT) fractures by correlating(More)
BACKGROUND CONTEXT The decision for operative treatment of patients with spinal metastases is dependent on the patient's predicted survival. Tokuhashi, Tomita, Bauer, and Oswestry scores have been devised for survival prediction; however, none of these systems have been evaluated in nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC). PURPOSE To investigate the accuracy of(More)
This paper aims to describe the rare post-operative complication of a lymphocele formation after lateral lumbar interbody fusion. The patient in this case was a 76-year-old lady with a 10 year history of low back pain and neurogenic claudication. She had previously underwent multiple spine surgeries for her condition. She presented to our institution for a(More)
This case report describes the first case of a bone bridge formation across the left L5/S1 neuroforamen after instrumented posterolateral fusion for L5/S1 isthmic spondylolisthesis. Our patient was a 70-year-old lady who had grade 2, L5/S1 isthmic spondylolisthesis and bilateral S1 nerve root compression. She suffered from mechanical low back pain and(More)
STUDY DESIGN A cross-sectional study of prospectively collected data. OBJECTIVE To compare lumbar spine alignment in six common postures, and estimate loss in range of motion (ROM) relative to standing. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Ideal position for fusion of lumbar spine remains unknown. Although surgical fusion is necessary for deformity correction and(More)
