STUDY DESIGN We conducted a cross-sectional, genotyping study in patients with lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS) and controls. OBJECTIVE To determine the contribution of COL9A2 polymorphisms to LSS development in the Korean population. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Because congenital spinal stenosis is typically associated with chondrodysplasias, which are genetic disorders, genetic factors may also play a role in degenerative LSS. A recent Finnish study reported a splice site mutation in COL9A2… CONTINUE READING
