We reviewed the results of motor evoked potential (MEP) and somatosensory evoked potential (SEP) monitoring during 116 operations on the spine or spinal cord. We monitored MEPs by electrically stimulating the spinal cord and recording compound muscle action potentials from lower extremity muscles and monitored SEPs by stimulating posterior tibial or(More)
Sagittal imbalance is a significant factor in determining clinical treatment outcomes in patients with deformity. Measurement of sagittal alignment using the traditional Cobb technique is frequently hampered by difficulty in visualizing landmarks. This report compares traditional manual measurement techniques to a computer-assisted sagittal plane(More)
STUDY DESIGN An anatomic study that describes the relationship of the pedicle center to the mid-lateral pars (MLP) in the lower lumbar spine as a guide to pedicle screw placement. OBJECTIVE Describe morphometric data of the lower lumbar pedicles, the unique coronal pedicle footprints of L4 and L5, and their impact on the relationship of the pedicle center(More)
A biomechanical study was performed comparing the stiffness and stability of Cotrel-Dubousset (CD) spinal instrumentation with that of segmentally wired Harrington distraction rods and segmentally wired Luque rods under conditions of single-level instability. The axial and torsional stiffness coefficients of each system were determined on a customized(More)
BACKGROUND A classification of lumbosacral spondylolisthesis has been proposed recently. This classification describes eight distinct types of spondylolisthesis based on the slip grade, the degree of dysplasia, and the sagittal sacro-pelvic balance. The objectives of this study are to assess the reliability of this classification and to propose a new and(More)
