SummaryThe lumbar spine was examined radiologically for the presence of spondylolysis and spondyloisthesis in 936 asymptomatic soldiers prior to military placement and in 662 soldiers complaining of low back pain. The overall incidence of spondylolysis was 9.7% in both groups, but bilateral spondylolysis was more prone to be associated with symptoms than a unilateral defect. In the symptomatic group the incidence of spondylolisthesis was 5.3% but only 2.2% in the asymptomatic group. The defect… 
Spondylolisthesis is Common, Early, and Severe in Loeys-Dietz Syndrome
TLDR
High-grade spondylolisthesis is common in LDS and usually associated with spondylonolysis, and should be considered in patients with high-gradeSpondylolysis and patients with LDS should be monitored for spondyolistheses and spondYLolysis starting when they are young.
Low-grade spondylolisthesis.
TLDR
In the absence of severe neurological symptoms or an unsafe component of instability, a trial of conservative management is reasonable and prudent and surgical management is more efficacious for enduring symptomatic relief and restoration of physical function.
Relationship between radiological and clinical variables in spondylolysis
TLDR
There was a clear positive correlation of symptoms and functional impairment during the observation period to disc degeneration and vertebral slipping at follow-up, as well as to a decrease in lumbar index at the time of diagnosis.
Clinical features of patients with pars defects identified in adulthood
TLDR
Approximately 90 % of patients with terminal-stage spondylolysis that was first diagnosed in adulthood involved the L5, and only some patients with L5 spondyolysis had SBO, and all but one of these patients was male.
Surgically Treated Cases of Lumbar Spondylolysis and Isthmic Spondylolisthesis: A Multicenter Study
TLDR
The percentage of L4 lesions in this study was significantly higher and of L5 lesions was significantly lower than those lesions’ percentages in the population-based study, suggesting L4 spondylolysis may be more unstable or cause clinical symptoms more frequently leading to more surgical intervention.
Spondylolysis and Spondylolisthesis: Prevalence and Association With Low Back Pain in the Adult Community-Based Population
TLDR
This study did not reveal a significant association between the observation of spondylolysis on CT and the occurrence of LBP, suggesting that the condition does not seem to represent a major cause of L BP in the general population.
Lumbar spondylolysis in the adolescent athlete.
TLDR
Spondylolysis is a common occurrence for adolescent athletes who have low back pain and involves a defect in the pars interarticularis, occurring as a result of repeated hyperextension and rotation.
Epidemiology and Morphological Hallmark in Symptomatic Spondylotic Beninese Patients
TLDR
The main radiologic parameters are compromised with increasing sacral slop and PI and reduction of DH and LL and Findings are characteristic in female population.
Symptoms, signs, and functional disability in adult spondylolisthesis.
TLDR
The clinical pattern and functional disability in adult spondylolisthesis and in low back pain of nonspecific origin are similar and patients with a nonorganic pain drawing were more often blue collar workers and reported reduced mental condition, sexual function, functional ability and more pain.
The modern approach to surgical treatment of spondylolisthesis in children
TLDR
Variations of surgical treatment for spondylolisthesis in children depending on a degree of L5 displacement, clinical manifestation of disease, and neu-rological disorders are presented.

Spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis in children.
TLDR
There is considerable evidence to suggest that when the spondylolisthesis exceeds 50%, there are many dynamic and anatomic factors at work to potentiate continued deformity and symptoms in the growing adolescent, reflected clinically by the frequent failure of conservative measures in controlling symptoms and the need for surgery once the slip exceeds grade II.
Spondylolysis and spondylolysthesis.
TLDR
Advice on treatment is given in relation to the various surgical techniques, emphasizing the importance of the reduction of slipping, and giving directions on the use of this technique, and its limitations.
Comparative roentgenographic study of the asymptomatic and symptomatic lumbar spine.
TLDR
Routine roentgenograms of the lumbosacral spine were useful in evaluating patients seen for treatment of low-back pain and degenerative disc disease appeared to be a major cause of low back pain.
Observations on the etiology and frequency of spondylolisthesis and its precursors.
TLDR
The studies to be reported here have been limited to developing further information on the following subjects: the genesis and frequency of vertebral isthmus defects with a discussion as to whether such defects are congenital or traumatic in origin.
Spondylolisthesis 의 手術治驗例
TLDR
The types of spondylolisthesis seen in children and adolescents described by Wiltse are described, including specific procedures useful for both mild and severe slippage.
Lumbosacral junction; roentgenographic comparison of patients with and without backaches.
TLDR
In order to determine the relationship between the roentgenographic findings and chronic lumbar backache, a study was made comparing 100 patients with backache and an equal number of persons not bothered by backache.
Comparative roentgen findings in symptomatic and asymptomatic backs.
TLDR
A group of men who had been in its employ for ten years or more, who denied having discomfort in the back either on or off the job, and who had not asked for treatment for back disability at any time during their employment are surveyed.
THE LUMBOSACRAL JUNCTION
TLDR
Much of the potential weakness of the lumbosacral junction in man is due to the skeletal modifications necessary in changing from the ancestral quadrupedal to the modern bipedal condition.
Preemployment examinations of the low back.
TLDR
Preemployment examination, followed either by rejection or by assignment to limited duty when indicated, costs little as compared to the dollars and man-days saved by reducing the incidence of reported low back injuries.
Lumbar spondylolisthesis with isthmic defects.
TLDR
The authors are concerned mainly with the myelographic signs associated with spondylolisthesis in patients with isthmic changes.
