23/08/19 02:14 from The Spine Journal
Over 100,000 traumatic thoracolumbar fractures occur annually in North America. Previous investigations have examined timing of surgery, but consensus is still lacking regarding the ideal timing for thoracolumbar trauma surgery for optim...

» 103. Factors associated with motor, sensory, bladder and bowel function recovery after traumatic cauda equina injury (TCEI)
23/08/19 02:14 from The Spine Journal
Traumatic cauda equina injury (TCEI) is usually caused by spine injury at L1 or below, and can result in motor and/or sensory impairments and/or neurogenic bowel and bladder.

» 169. Biomechanical analysis of motion following lateral sacroiliac joint screw fixation with or without lumbosacral fixation
23/08/19 02:14 from The Spine Journal
Hypermobility or aberrant mechanics of the sacroiliac joint (SIJ) can be a source of pain. Lumbosacral fixation at L5–S1 may also be a source of postfusion low back pain. Prior biomechanical research has shown that fusion at the lumbar s...

» 164. The reliability of the AOSpine thoracolumbar spine injury classification system in children: results of a multicenter study
23/08/19 02:14 from The Spine Journal
In the adult population, there have been significant endeavors in developing classification systems of thoracolumbar injuries. These systems evolved from simple morphologic classifications to more complex systems based on fracture morpho...

» 140. Rapid reversal of surgical steps minimizes spinal cord injury in a porcine model
23/08/19 02:14 from The Spine Journal
Spinal cord injuries (SCI) are one of the most devastating in spine surgery. Intraop neuromonitoring changes can occur as a secondary characteristic of spinal cord compression and decrease in spinal cord blood flow (SCBF). Laser Doppler ...

» 249. Traumatic subaxial cervical facet joint dislocation: predictors of spinal cord injury and surgical failure
23/08/19 02:13 from The Spine Journal
Approximately two thirds of cervical spine injuries affect the subaxial cervical spine, with fractures occurring most often at C6 and C7 and dislocations at C5-C6 and C6-C7. In the spectrum of these injuries, facet joint dislocation repr...

» 248. Early vs late spine surgery in severely injured patients: which is the appropriate timing for surgery?
23/08/19 02:13 from The Spine Journal
The ideal timing for surgical stabilization of spine fractures in severely injured patients is still controversial. The benefits of an early surgery have to be weighed against the risks that this surgery entails in this specific population.

» P63. Comparing patient-reported outcome scores among spine patients: motor vehicle accident insurance versus workers compensation versus general population
23/08/19 02:13 from The Spine Journal
Patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) allow patients to validly self-report functional status, pain level and mental health in comparison with the greater population. Many patients with MVA insurance have concerns regarding causation...

» P131. Outpatient single-level posterior cervical foraminotomy is associated with lower risk of perioperative complications
23/08/19 02:13 from The Spine Journal
Cervical radiculopathy refers to irritation of nerve roots exiting the cervical spine due to degenerative changes of the facet joints or intervertebral discs. Surgical management may include an anterior or posterior approach. Posterior d...

» P130. Intraoperative neuromonitoring findings are predictive of neurological outcomes after decompression for cervical spondylotic myelopathy
23/08/19 02:13 from The Spine Journal
Intraoperative Neuromonitoring (IONM) is frequently used by spine surgeons to predict emerging neurological insult and to provide functional feedback prior to development of irreversible neural injury. Despite its widespread use, however...

» P154. Outcome of surgical intervention in neglected cervical spine fractures: a case series of 41 patients
23/08/19 02:13 from The Spine Journal
Neglected and delayed presentations of cervical spine fractures to hospitals are rare, but it is a pretty common scenario in developing and third world countries. At present, there are no guidelines about surgical management in these lat...

» P152. The effect of frailty on outcome after traumatic spinal cord injury
23/08/19 02:13 from The Spine Journal
Frailty, defined as a state of decreased reserve and susceptibility to external stressors, has previously been shown to negatively effect postoperative outcome in an elective spine surgery population.
