Conditions that may be treated with surgery include herniated discs, lumbar spinal stenosis, spondylolisthesis
, and degenerative disc disease.
is the term used to describe forward translation of one vertebra over the adjacent vertebra.
4,9,11,20] Although the link between facet tropism and lumbar disc hernia, lumbar spondylolysis, and degenerative spondylolisthesis
was reported previously, [3,10,21] other studies failed to show the correlation between facet tropism and lumbar degenerative lesions.
The flexion radiographs revealed instability of the spondylolisthesis
She also had partial syndactyly of second and third toes, left sided ectropion, reduced intervertebral disc spaces and a spondylolisthesis
at lumbosacral level.
We have found TLIF an effective procedure in reducing back pain and improving patient disability scores in cases of low back pain because of DDD, instability and spondylolisthesis
is the forward movement of one vertebra on another.
The inclusion criteria were as follows: (1) English and Chinese literature; (2) the study design was a comparative article (MIS-TLIF versus open-TLIF); (3) the article reported at least one clinic outcome or perioperative data; (4) the patients suffered from degenerative disc diseases (disc herniation, canal stenosis, or spondylolisthesis
); isthmic spondylolisthesis
was also included; (5) the sample size comprised at least ten patients for both groups; and (6) the full text was available.
is derived from the Greek words-Spondylos (Vertebra) and Olisthanein (To slip or fall).
The Egyptian businesswoman had been suffering from continuous pain in her lower back and spine before doctors told her that she had been suffering from Spondylolisthesis
, a medical condition of her lumbar vertebrae.
The contraindication here is that even the most basic back bend (think "upward dog") for someone with spondylolisthesis
creates what is commonly known as "the watermelon seed" effect, exacerbating the anterior slippage of the affected vertebra.
Some author advocated that the degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis
was relatively stable, and limited decompression may not lead to spinal instability.
is characterized by the translation of one vertebra relative to the next caudal vertebral segment.
Lumbar degenerative spondylolisthesis
(LDS) is an acquired slippage of one lumbar vertebra on the lower one as the result of degenerative instability, in the absence of a defect in the pars interarticularis.
Moreover, the patient presented with L5-S1 instability secondary to low grade spondylolisthesis
due to spondylolysis and degenerative disc disease at the L4-L5 level.
