  • Cervical osteogenic degeneration in Japanese professional wrestlers and its relationship to cervical spine injury. [Journal Article]
  • JNJ Neurosurg Spine 2018 Sep 21; :1-6

  • CONCLUSIONS: AGOL is a peculiar cervical degeneration of Japanese professional wrestlers, especially in aged wrestlers. The AGOL appears to be a biological reaction to reinforce the anterior aspect of the cervical spine of professional wrestlers, who routinely defend themselves in a flexed neck posture against their opponent. The present results suggest that the risk of CSI is not increased by spinal canal stenosis accompanied by AGOL. Further studies are needed to investigate the relationship between the wrestlers' cervical degeneration and the risk of CSI in more detail.
  • Practice Variation Among Surgeons Treating Lumbar Spinal Stenosis in a Single Institution. [Journal Article]
  • SSpine (Phila Pa 1976) 2018 Sep 17
  • Ogink PT, van Wulfften Palthe O, … Cha TD
  • CONCLUSIONS: There is widespread variation in the entire spectrum of diagnosis and therapy for lumbar spinal stenosis among surgeons in the same institution. Male gender, seeing an additional surgeon, having an additional spine diagnosis, and visiting a neurosurgery clinic were independently associated with increased surgical intervention. The main target we identified for decreasing variability was the use of diagnostic EMG.
