Down syndrome (DS) occurs when an individual has a full or partial extra copy of chromosome 21 and is the most common of all malformation syndromes. Associating with numerous pathologies like anterior atlantoaxial subluxation (AAAS) which is an increase in the space between the anterior arch of the first cervical vertebra (C1) and the odontoid process of the second vertebra (C2), most of the time its asymptomatic, only 1-2% to all the 30% who may have the AAAS and DS develop clinical symptoms. In this occasion, we present the case of a patient with SD and Juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA) who has atlantoaxial subluxation of approximately 11mm, basilar impression and platybasia with severe medullary compression in 2 points, requiring surgical management by the Neurological Surgery Service in Bucaramanga-Colombia...

The "Kickstand-Rod" technique: new surgical procedure for correction of coronal imbalance (CI) in spinal deformity patients. Coronal plane correction is difficult to achieve and maintain. We developed the technique for CI in deformity patients. The technique is a safe and effective method for correction of CI in deformity patients.

Pedicle screw instrumentation is a widely used technique for fixating the spine in fusion surgery. One of the complications associated with pedicle screw placement is when a screw breaches the pedicle medially and causes the patient radicular pain or numbness or weakness. Revising a breached pedicle screw in a patient who has undergone a multilevel fusion surgery often requires that the patient undergo a very invasive revision surgical procedure. Here the authors present a technical note on decompressing an S1 nerve compressed by a breached pedicle screw by performing an endoscopic surgical approach through a 1-cm incision and drilling down the threads of the pedicle screw, directly decompressing the nerve without removing the screw...

Symptomatic lumbar spondylolisthesis is commonly accompanied by spinal stenosis in multiple segments. These pathologies are routinely treated by multilevel decompression and instrumented fusion. However, it was hypothesized that a minimally invasive surgery (MIS) fusion in the unstable segment combined with a unilateral laminotomy for bilateral decompression (ULBD) in the adjacent stenotic segment is a biomechanically feasible alternative to a two-level fusion and superior to open laminectomy adjacent to a fused segment...

Management of cervical myelopathy (CM) has continued to evolve through a better understanding of the long-term outcomes of this diagnosis as well as improved diagnostic guidelines. More recent literature continues to expand the field, but certain publications can be distinguished from others due to their lasting impact. Using the Clarivate Analytics Web of Science, search phrases were used to identify publications pertaining to CM. The fifty most cited articles were isolated. The frequency of citations, year of publication, country of origin, journal of publication, level of evidence (LOE), article type, as well as contributing authors and institutions were recorded...

Age-related degenerative changes and non-spondylotic pathologies of the cervical spine such as trauma and tumor can lead to compression of neurological structures and result in substantial alteration of the structural anatomy. The end-goal of surgical intervention is to decompress the neural structures which can be achieved via an anterior or a posterior approach, and stabilization of segments to restore stability and alignment. Three-dimensional printing (3DP or Additive Manufacturing) has been applied to the field of medicine, in particular orthopedics and neurosurgery...

Background: A comparative survey from patients and radiographers of the new slump sitting flexion posture and the conventional standing forward bending posture. This study was performed to compare the technical and logistical aspects of the slump sitting versus the forward bending posture. Slump sitting flexes the lumbar spine more than the forward bending and increases the diagnosis rate of sagittal spinal instability up to 40% depending on the diagnostic criteria used. This should not come at the expense of patient safety and comfort nor burden the radiographers...

Background: Percutaneous endoscopic lumbar discectomy (PELD) is a relatively less invasive treatment for lumbar disc herniation (LDH). This study investigated the usefulness of a full-endoscopic system for PELD in lumbar ligamentum flavum hematoma (LFH) treatment. Methods: Between May 2017 and Jun 2018, a total of five patients with leg pain due to LFH underwent surgery using a full-endoscopic system for PELD. A percutaneous endoscopic translaminar approach (PETA) was performed right above the LFH...

Background: Three-dimensional (3D) navigation techniques can theoretically provide higher accuracy rates and increased safety for pedicle screw (PS) placement than traditional fluoroscopy (FL) guided methods. In this study, we compare the pedicular accuracy of 3D isocentric fluoroscopic navigation (3DFL) versus FL guidance in PS L4-L5-S1 fixation and evaluate the differential cortical purchase and safety of fixation of the S1 PS. Methods: This is a single-centre retrospective study of 810 PSs placed in open L4-L5-S1 fixation between 2012 and 2017 in 39 patients using standard FL and in 96 patients under 3DFL...

Background: Atlantoaxial (C1-C2) osteoarthritis (AAOA) causes severe suboccipital pain exacerbated by lateral rotation. The pain is usually progressive and resistant to conservative therapy. Posterior fusion surgery is performed to stabilise the C1-C2 segment. This is the first Australian study reporting the outcome of posterior atlantoaxial fixation including hybrid fixations performed for AAOA. Methods: All patients who underwent posterior atlantoaxial fixation surgery for AAOA from 2005 to 2015 at our institutions were enrolled (N=23)...

Background: Cervical deformity (CD) surgery has become increasingly more common and complex, which has also led to reoperations for complications such as distal junctional kyphosis (DJK). Cost-utility analysis has yet to be used to analyze CD revision surgery in relation to the cost-utility of primary CD surgeries. The aim of this study was to determine the cost-utility of revision surgery for CD correction. Methods: Retrospective review of a multicenter prospective CD database...
