A new concept for the anchorage of anterior fixation implants in the osteoporotic thoracic and lumbar spine is presented. The SpiralBlade has been proposed as a suitable device for use in the osteoporotic spine, due to its broad, flat surface, which should provide resistance against cut-out of...
Complex spinal anomalies involved in congenital scoliosis consist of a jumble of vertebral defects. Progressive scoliotic curves are frequently encountered in these patients. We evaluated the results of hemi-epiphysiodesis for this patient population. A series of ten patients with unclassified...
Although analysis of scoliotic deformity is still studied extensively by means of conventional roentgenograms, computer-assisted digital analysis may allow a faster, more accurate and more complete evaluation of the scoliotic spine. In this study, a new computer-assisted measurement method was...
Spinal canal dimensions are assumed to play a significant role with regard to the development of symptoms in individuals with disc herniations. The literature is inconclusive on the significance of spinal canal size as a risk factor for sciatica, mainly because of study design problems. The...
The goal of this study was to evaluate the short-term effects of intradiscal electrothermal treatment (IDET) for chronic discogenic low back pain. Twenty consecutive patients with symptomatic degenerative discs were treated with IDET and evaluated preoperatively, and 3 and 6 months...
Using two nonlinear finite element models of the lumbar spine, the concept of optimal posture is explored by minimizing the segmental sagittal moments required for the equilibrium of the passive lumbar spine under a total of 2800 N axial compression while varying the pelvic tilt and lumbar...
In order to improve the provision of spinal surgery in the United Kingdom, the number of Specialist Spinal Surgeons and Surgeons with an Interest in Spinal Surgery needs to increase by 25% from the existing 175 surgeons. A survey of Specialist Orthopaedic Registrars was performed, which...
Pedicle screw fixation is technically demanding and associated with high complication rates. The aim of this study was to identify and quantify the pedicle screw-related complications in 105 consecutive operations. We retrospectively analysed 105 consecutive primary operations. We found...
This retrospective study examines the results of surgical decompression of the lumbar spinal canal in 122 geriatric patients (age range 75–89 years) treated under general anesthesia by the same surgeon between the years 1990 and 1999. Patient demographics, perioperative complications, pain...
