Study Design. A prospective clinical investigation. Objective. To determine the clinical significance of congenital lumbosacral malformations in young male patients with subacute or chronic low back pain and to investigate a possible worsening of the clinical picture with the concurrence of transitional vertebra (TV) or spina bifida occulta (SBO). Summary of Background Data. Although the causative roles of congenital malformations in low back pain and lumbar disc herniation have been… Expand
Evaluation of congenital lumbosacral malformations and neurological findings in patients with low back pain.
TLDR
LBP in young adults with TV or SBO showed no correlation with neurologicalSigns, therefore patients with prolonged LBP that present with neurological signs may be scheduled for CT and/or MRI, but reevaluation of the patient with psychometric tests is recommended if there is no neurological sign.

Clinical Study Is Sacralization Really a Cause of Low Back Pain ?
Objective. The aim of this study was to determine, by plain radiography, if there is a relationship between sacralization and low back pain.Methods. Five hundred lumbosacral radiographs of low backExpand
Tethered cord syndrome with lower back pain and lumbosacral angle increase: case report
TLDR
For children with low back pain complicated by lumbosacral angle increase, MRI should be performed to exclude Tethered cord syndrome (TCS). Expand
Is Sacralization Really a Cause of Low Back Pain?
TLDR
The relationship between sacralization and low back pain is not clear and future studies need to focus on identifying other parameters that are relevant to distinguishing lumbosacral variation, as well as corroborating the results obtained here with data from other samples. Expand
Are Transitional Vertebra and Spina Bifida Occulta Related with Lumbar Disc Herniation and Clinical Parameters in Young Patients with Chronic Low Back Pain?
TLDR
A relationship was detected between the frequency of LDH and L STV in young patients with chronic lower back pain between the ages of 20 and 40 years, and the presence of LSTV was found to increase the risk ofLower back pain and disability. Expand
Low back complaints worse, but not more frequent in subjects with congenital lumbosacral malformations: a study on 5000 recruits.
TLDR
The authors studied the plain radiographs and medical records of 5000 military recruits screened in a Turkish Military Hospital in the period November 2008-October 2009 to find a correlation with subsequent low back complaints, finding no correlation at all. Expand
The Clinical Significance of Lumbosacral Transitional Vertebrae on the Surgical Outcomes of Lumbar Discectomy: A Retrospective Cohort Study of Young Adults.
TLDR
LSTV can limit a patient's clinical improvement after MD with regard to pain intensity and recurrence, and Caution must be taken when a patient is scheduled to undergo surgery. Expand
Partial lumbosacral transitional vertebrae: 2 cases of unilateral sacralization.

TLDR
It is proposed that sacralization is a possible cause of back pain in these cases and demonstrated partial resolution of symptoms after chiropractic management. Expand
Lumbosacral Transitional Vertebrae and Its Prevalence in the Australian Population
TLDR
LSTV are a common normal variant and can be a factor in spinal surgery at incorrect levels and it is essential that all clinicians are aware of this common congenital anomaly. Expand

TLDR
In patients in whom the mega-apophysis itself may be the source of back pain, surgical resection may be a safe and effective procedure. Expand

Distribution and incidence of degenerative spine changes in patients with a lumbo-sacral transitional vertebra
TLDR
It is indicated that an LSTV does not in itself constitute a risk factor for degenerative spine changes, but when degeneration occurs, it is more likely to be found at the disc level above the L STV. Expand
[Sacralization of the 5th lumbar vertebra and backache: what's the possible relationship?].
TLDR
It is concluded that present knowledge does not reveal any correlation between transitional vertebrae and low back pain. Expand
Measurement of spinal canal diameters in young subjects with lumbosacral transitional vertebra
TLDR
There is no relationship between LSTV and a congenitally narrower canal, and the spinal canal diameters were measured in young subjects in whom degenerative changes have not yet become significant. Expand
Lumbosacral transitional vertebrae and nerve-root symptoms.
TLDR
In patients with disc herniation, the incidence was statistically higher and the mean age lower in patients with TV than in those without, and in most patients, the symptomatic disc level was just above the TV. Expand
Spina bifida occulta of S1 is not an innocent finding.
TLDR
Patients with SBO-S1 showed a higher incidence of posterior disc herniation, which increased with age, which can be explained by instability of the base of the lumbar spine caused by SBO -S1, which produces a predisposition to posterior discHerniation. Expand

TLDR
A study of plain radiographs from normal subjects and patients with chronic low back pain indicates the etiologic significance of lumbosacral transitional vertebra in low backPain. Expand
Bertolotti's Syndrome Revisited: Transitional Vertebrae of the Lumbar Spine
TLDR
It is postulated that hypermobility and altered stresses become concentrated in the spine at the level immediately above a lumbar transitional vertebra, and Accelerated disc and facet joint degeneration at this level may result. Expand

TLDR
There is no firm evidence for the presence or absence of a causal relationship between radiographic findings and nonspecific low back pain. Expand
Relation between the low back pain syndrome and x-ray findings. 2. Transitional vertebra (mainly sacralization).
TLDR
The relation between LBP and transitional vertebra was investigated in 312 subjects; 148 healthy individuals served as controls and there is some evidence that LBP, when associated with sacralization, may be more severe. Expand
Incidence of spina bifida occulta in relation to age.
TLDR
The present investigation was undertaken to determine whether or not similar high incidences of neural arch defects existed at older age levels in the Japanese population and to obtain data that may permit evaluation of the relation of age and sex to spina bifida occulta in children. Expand
