The purpose of this study is to assess the degenerative changes in the motion segments above a L5S1 spondylolytic spondylolisthesis and to view these in light of the retrolisthesis in the segment immediately above the slip. A spondylolytic spondylolisthesis causes an abnormal motion and predisposes to degenerative changes at the L5S1 disc. Degenerative… CONTINUE READING
