  • Mid-lumbar traumatic spondyloptosis without neurological deficit: A case report and literature review. [Case Reports]
    Medicine (Baltimore). 2020 Mar; 99(12):e19578.Xu F, Tian Z, … Wang Y
  • CONCLUSIONS: We reported an L3 to L4 traumatic spondyloptosis case that involved intact neurology, which is the first-ever reported mid-lumbar spondyloptosis case that involved complete posterior column and neural sparing. For the treatment of traumatic spondyloptosis without neurological deficit, restoring stability and preventing secondary cord injury should be taken into consideration.
  • Hybrid and double insurance atlantoaxial facetal fixation. [Case Reports]
    J Craniovertebr Junction Spine. 2019 Jul-Sep; 10(3):184-187.Goel A, Vutha R, … Ranjan S
  • The authors report a case of a 19-year-old female patient having basilar invagination with complex musculoskeletal abnormalities wherein atlantoaxial fixation was done with a combination of Goel and Magerl techniques on a single articulation on one side and two transarticular screws (Magerl technique) were deployed on the contralateral side articulation. The combination of Goel and Magerl techniq…
  • 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; 10:23.Paulo 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 Jan 12 [Online ahead of print]Fattahi 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):719-729.Crawford 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.
  • The Challenge of Creating Lordosis in High-Grade Dysplastic Spondylolisthesis. [Review]
    Neurosurg Clin N Am. 2018 Jul; 29(3):375-387.Hoel RJ, Brenner RM, Polly DW
  • High-grade dysplastic spondylolisthesis (HGDS) is a subset of L5-S1 spondylolisthesis that occurs due to dysmorphic anatomy at the lumbosacral junction, often resulting in sagittal imbalance. Enhanced understanding of global sagittal alignment has led many to preferentially treat HGDS with reduction and fusion to restore sagittal balance. The purpose of this article is to review published surgica…
  • Improvise, adapt and overcome-challenges in management of pediatric congenital atlantoaxial dislocation. [Journal Article]
    Clin Neurol Neurosurg. 2018 08; 171:85-94.Salunke P, Karthigeyan M, … Sunil N
  • CONCLUSIONS: Pediatric patients have deformed and oblique joints, thereby making complete spondyloptosis, severe vertical dislocation and lateral tilt common in this age group. Though pediatric bones are soft and small, it is possible to achieve multiplanar realignment by drilling and manipulation of C1-2 joints. The realignment and short segment C1-2 fusion in these patients has a good radiological and clinical outcome.
  • Traumatic Lumbosacral Spondyloptosis in a Pediatric Patient: Case Report and Literature Review. [Case Reports]
    Pediatr Neurosurg. 2018; 53(4):263-269.Yamaki VN, Morais BA, … Teixeira MJ
  • A 4-year-old girl was admitted to the emergency department after having been buried beneath a wall. A computed tomography scan revealed anterior grade V L5-S1 spondylolisthesis, and magnetic resonance imaging showed a traumatic rupture of the fibrous annulus of the L5-S1 intervertebral disc and lesion of the anterior longitudinal and yellow ligaments. The patient underwent anterior and posterior …
  • Traumatic Lateral Spondyloptosis: Case Series. [Journal Article]
    World Neurosurg. 2018 May; 113:e166-e171.Garg M, Kumar A, … Mahapatra AK
  • CONCLUSIONS: Lateraloptosis is difficult to treat, and the aim of surgery is to stabilize the spine. Rehabilitation remains the most crucial factor, but the scarcity of proper rehabilitation centers results in high mortality and morbidity.
  • Spontaneous Fusion of S2/S3 Spondyloptosis in an Adult. [Case Reports]
    World Neurosurg. 2018 02; 110:129-132.Vahedi P, Rymarczuk GN, … Prasad SK
  • CONCLUSIONS: This case demonstrates that similar distal sacral pathologies may be managed conservatively when there is no associated neurologic deficit, and the osteodiskoligamentous integrity of the lumbosacropelvic unit remains intact. Our report plus the very few published papers in the literature illustrate the natural history of uncomplicated traumatic spondyloptosis and support the role of in situ fusion and instrumentation as a reliable alternative to circumferential fusion in patients who cannot tolerate staged or prolonged operations.
