PURPOSE: To evaluate the association between facet joints cross-sectional area asymmetry (FCAA) and cervical intervertebral disc herniation (CDH). METHODS: Overall, we retrospectively recruited 390 consecutive patients with CDH who underwent surgical treatment at our institution and 50 normal participants. Clinical variables and radiological findings related to CDH were collected. RESULTS: Patients with CDH were more likely to have a higher absolute value of the facet asymmetry factor (FAF) (p  < ...

PURPOSE: This study aims to explore the differences in cervical degeneration between healthy people with and without cervical flexion-relaxation phenomenon (FRP) and to identify whether the disappearance of cervical FRP is related to cervical degeneration. METHODS: According to the flexion relaxation ratio (FRR), healthy subjects were divided into the normal FRP group and the abnormal FRP group. Besides, MRI was used to evaluate the degeneration of the passive subsystem (vertebral body, intervertebral disc, cervical sagittal balance, etc...

PURPOSE: Surgical correction of neuromuscular scoliosis is often a challenging and extensive procedure. Due to this complexity and the high disease burden that these patients carry, per and post-operative complications are not uncommon. The purpose of this study was to systematically review and describe the pooled rates of postoperative complications and analyze risk factors for complications in neuromuscular scoliosis surgery described in the literature in the last ten years. METHODS: A systematic review of the English literature across multiple databases was conducted using search criteria (neuromuscular scoliosis AND complications) and using PRISMA guidelines (Jan 2012-July 2022)...

PURPOSE: The goal of this study was to explore sex-related variations of global alignment parameters and their distinct evolution patterns across age groups. METHODS: This multicentric retrospective study included healthy volunteers with full-body biplanar radiographs in free-standing position. All radiographic data were collected from 3D reconstructions: global and lower limb parameters, pelvic incidence (PI) and sacral slope (SS). Lumbar lordosis (LL), thoracic kyphosis (TK) and cervical lordosis (CL) were also assessed as well as the lumbar and thoracic apex, and thoracolumbar inflexion point...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Postoperative infection after spinal deformity correction in pediatric patients is associated with significant costs. Identifying risk factors associated with postoperative infection would help surgeons identify high-risk patients that may require interventions to minimize infection risk.

BACKGROUND: Osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCF) caused by osteoporosis is a common clinical fracture type. There are many surgical treatment options for OVCF, but there is a lack of comparison among different options. Therefore, we counted a total of 104 cases of OVCF operations with different surgical plans, followed up the patients, and compared the surgical outcome indications before, after and during the follow-up. METHOD: 104 patients who underwent posterior osteotomy (Modified PSO, SPO, PSO, VCR) and kyphosis correction surgery at our hospital between April 2006 and August 2021 with a minimum follow-up period of 24 months were included...

PURPOSE: Subsequent vertebral fracture (SVF) is a severe advent event of percutaneous vertebral augmentation (PVA). However, the incidence and risk factors of SVF following PVA for OVCF in postmenopausal women remain unclear. This research aims to investigative the incidence and risk factors of SVF after PVA for OVCF in postmenopausal women. METHODS: Women who underwent initial PVA for OVCF between August 2019 and December 2021 were reviewed. Univariate logistic regression analysis was performed to identify possible risk factors of SVF, and independent risk factors were determined by multivariate logistic regression...

PURPOSE: Existing literature on pediatric traumatic spinal cord injury (PTSCI) demonstrates large variations in characteristics, incidence, time-periods and etiology, worldwide. Epidemiological studies addressing injuries to the total spine, conducted in Southern European regions are remarkably scarce; therefore we aimed to investigate long-term trends analyzing etiology, fracture location and type, single or multiple fractures, associated lesions and neurological status in Catalonia, Spain...

PURPOSE: For cervical nerve root compression, anterior cervical discectomy with fusion (anterior surgery) or posterior foraminotomy (posterior surgery) are safe and effective options. Posterior surgery might have a more beneficial economic profile compared to anterior surgery. The purpose of this study was to analyse if posterior surgery is cost-effective compared to anterior surgery. METHODS: An economic evaluation was performed as part of a multicentre, noninferiority randomised clinical trial (Foraminotomy ACDF Cost-effectiveness Trial) with a follow-up of 2 years...

PURPOSE: This study aimed to develop and validate a new model that focused on the risk of imminent vertebral fractures in women with osteoporosis. METHODS: Data from 2,048 patients were extracted from three hospitals, of which 1,720 patients passed the inclusion and exclusion screen. The patients from Nanfang Hospital (NFH) were randomized at a 2:1 ratio to create a training cohort (n = 709) and an internal validation cohort (n = 355), with the patients from the other two hospitals (n = 656) used for external validation...

PURPOSE: Trial data shows modest reductions in leg pain, disability and surgery avoidance following epidural steroid injections (ESI) for severe sciatica. Despite their common use, there is no clear evidence about which patients are more likely to benefit from ESI. The aim of this study was to generate consensus on potential predictors of outcome following ESI for disc-related sciatica. METHODS: A list of potential predictors of outcome was generated during a consensus meeting of seven experts...
