PURPOSE The minimally invasive transpsoas approach can be employed to treat various spinal disorders, such as disc degeneration, deformity, and lateral disc herniation. With this technique, visualization is limited in comparison with the open procedure and the proximity of the lumbar plexus to the surgical pathway is one limitation of this technique.(More)
PURPOSE The alignment of the cervical spine is of primary importance to maintain horizontal gaze and contributes to the functional outcome of patients. Cervical spine alignment after correction of major sagittal imbalance has rarely been reported in the literature. METHODS Retrospective review of 31 consecutive patients with sagittal plane deformities(More)
BACKGROUND Lumbar spinal stenosis is degenerative disc disease most common manifestation. If stenosis degree seems poorly related to symptom severity, lumbar muscles role is recognized. Many studies report imaging methods, to analyze muscle volumes and fat infiltration (FI), but remain limited due to the difficulty to represent entire muscle volume(More)
BACKGROUND/PURPOSE Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is increasingly used to study skeletal muscles patients with muscular disorders. We report an MRI technique for evaluating the trunk muscles. This technique takes both the component surface area (CSA) and the density of the muscles on MRI axial slices into account . Using a computer-based image analysis(More)
The authors report a case of dorsal transscaphoid perilunate dislocation which is noteworthy because there was significant anterior displacement of the lunate together with the proximal part of the scaphoid. The lunate was propelled in front of the radial epiphysis and the proximal part of the scaphoid ended up in front of the metaphyseal part of the(More)
