  • The Relationship between Improvements in Myelopathy and Sagittal Realignment in Cervical Deformity Surgery Outcomes. [Journal Article]
  • SSpine (Phila Pa 1976) 2018 Feb 16
  • Passias PG, Horn SR, … International Spine Study Group (ISSG)
  • CONCLUSIONS: Following CD-corrective surgery, improvements in myelopathy symptoms and functional score were associated with superior 1-year patient-reported outcomes. Although there were no relationships between cervical-specific sagittal parameters and patient outcomes, global parameters of C2-S1 SVA and C7-S1 SVA showed significant correlations with overall 1-year mJOA, EQ-5D, and NDI. These results highlight myelopathy improvement as a key driver of patient-reported outcomes, and confirm the importance of sagittal alignment in CD patients.
  • Postoperative Walking Ability of Non-ambulatory Cervical Myelopathy Patients. [Journal Article]
  • SSpine (Phila Pa 1976) 2018 Feb 16
  • Takeoka Y, Kaneyama S, … Tsubosaka M
  • CONCLUSIONS: Even if the patients were nonambulatory, 28.3% of them became able to walk without support after operation. If a patient becomes nonambulatory within 3 months from the onset of myelopathy or 2 months from the onset of gait disturbance, surgical treatment should be performed immediately to raise the possibility to improve stable gait.
  • Outcomes of Surgical Decompression in Patients With Very Severe Degenerative Cervical Myelopathy. [Journal Article]
  • SSpine (Phila Pa 1976) 2018 Feb 16
  • Kopjar B, Bohm PE, … Arnold PM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Decompressive surgery is effective in patients with very severe DCM; however, patients have significant residual symptoms and disability. The very severe subgroup (mJOA ≤8) of patients with DCM represents a distinct group of patients and their different clinical trajectory is important for clinicians and patients to recognize. Duration of symptoms negatively affects chances for recovery. Whenever possible, patients with DCM should be treated before developing very severe symptomatology.
