BACKGROUND CONTEXT Adjacent segment disease (ASD) after lumbar spinal fusion has been an important reason behind the development of nonfusion stabilization technology. However, the incidence, prevalence, and factors contributing to adjacent segment degeneration in the lumbar spine remain unclear. A range of prevalence rates for ASD have been reported in the lumbar spinal literature, but the annual incidence has not been widely studied in this region. Conflicting reports exist regarding risk… CONTINUE READING
