In light of these 2 cases and on reviewing the literature, it appears that zygapophyseal joint osteoarthritis with degenerative (or articular) spondylolisthesis can be a predisposing factor to the formation of such synovial expansions and, consequently, the cause of nerve root compression. The coexistence of a lumbar degenerative spondylolisthesis with a radicular syndrome… CONTINUE READING
