  • StatPearls: Pars Interarticularis Injury [BOOK]
    StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Pereira Duarte Matias M Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires Camino Willhuber Gaston O. GO Hospital Italiano de Buenos Aires BOOK
  • Injury of the pars interarticularis is among the most common causes of low back pain, especially in adolescent athletes. Sometimes these lesions develop in an asymptomatic manner, and they are detected in adulthood when the injury becomes chronic and symptomatic.[1]  The spectrum of pathologies in the pars interarticularis ranges from bone stress, pars fracture (spondylolysis) to isthmic spondylo…
  • Novel method for stepwise reduction of traumatic thoracic spondyloptosis. [Case Reports]
    Surg Neurol Int 2019; 10:23Paulo D, Semonche A, Tyagi R
  • CONCLUSIONS: Early spinal realignment and stabilization following spondyloptosis at the T11/T12 level resulted in some improvement in sensory function without resolution of motor plegia. Here, we described how to utilize a novel beanbag reduction method to safely achieve stepwise spinal realignment.
  • Traumatic cervical posterior spondyloptosis: report of a rare case. [Journal Article]
    Br J Neurosurg 2019; :1-2Fattahi A, Tabibkhooei A
  • Traumatic spinal spondyloptosis is the extreme degree of spondylolisthesis and is not common. Traumatic cervical anterior spondyloptosis has been reported but we could not find reports of posterior traumatic cervical spondyloptosis. We present an 18-year-old female with this type of injury and cervical complete cord syndrome below C5 and explain our treatment approach.
  • Management of Cervical Instability as a Complication of Neurofibromatosis Type 1 in Children: A Historical Perspective With a 40-Year Experience. [Case Reports]
    Spine Deform 2018 Nov - Dec; 6(6):719-729Crawford AH, Schumaier AP, Mangano FT
  • CONCLUSIONS: Spinal deformity is the most common musculoskeletal manifestation of NF1. Cervical lesions are frequently asymptomatic, but patients with thoracolumbar scoliosis, dystrophic features, or a history of laminectomy should have the cervical spine carefully evaluated. For severe and progressive kyphotic deformities, most authors recommend a period of traction followed by a combined anterior-posterior fusion that is instrumented from parallel to parallel vertebra (or six or more levels). Close follow-up is very important because complications and progression are frequent.
