- Upper limb weakness following lumber disc surgery: An unusual case. Chowdhury, Tumul; Goyal, Keshav; Sapra, Harsh; Mehta, Yatin // Saudi Journal of Anaesthesia;Jul2012, Vol. 6 Issue 3, p302
A letter to the editor is presented regarding a 65-year-old male patient with lower back pain radiating to both lower limbs, in which magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) revealed cord compression on the lower lumbar vertebrae.
- Single-Leg-Stance (Flamingo) Radiographs to Assess Pelvic Instability: How Much Motion Is Normal? Garras, David N.; Carothers, Joshua T.; Olson, Steven A. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Oct2008, Vol. 90-A Issue 10, p2114
Background: Chronic pelvic instability is a relatively uncommon cause of pelvic and low-back pain. Patients present with feelings of instability and mechanical symptoms. Static radiographs are often inadequate to detect abnormal relative motion between the hemipelves consistent with chronic...
- Comparative study of knee anterior cruciate ligament reconstruction with or without fluoroscopic assistance: a prospective study of 73 cases. Chouteau, Julien; Benareau, I.; Testa, R.; Fessy, M. H.; Lerat, J. L.; Moyen, B. // Archives of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery;Sep2008, Vol. 128 Issue 9, p945
Correct placement of both tibial and femoral tunnels is one of the main factors for a favorable clinical outcome after anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) reconstruction. We used an original system of computer assisted surgery (CAS). The system, based on fluoroscopic guidance combined with special...
- Musculoskeletal case 5. Presentation. Munk, Peter L. // Canadian Journal of Surgery;Aug99, Vol. 42 Issue 4, p252
Presents an image of the lumbar spine in Canada. Use of magnetic resonance imaging; Exclusion of disc herniation; Implications of the image on the diagnosis.
- THE VALUE OF MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING OF THE LUMBAR SPINE TO PREDICT LOW-BACK PAIN IN ASYMPTOMATIC SUBJECTS. David G., Borenstein; O'Mara Jr., James W.; Boden, Scott D.; Lauerman, William C.; Jacobson, Alan; Platenberg, Craig; Schellinger, Dieter; Wiesel, Sam W. // Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, American Volume;Sep2001, Vol. 83-A Issue 9, p1306
Background: In 1989, a group of sixty-seven asymptomatic individuals with no history of back pain underwent magnetic resonance imaging of the lumbar spine. Twenty-one subjects (31%) had an identifiable abnormality of a disc or of the spinal canal. In the current study, we investigated whether...

- Utility of Limited Protocol Magnetic Resonance Imaging Lumbar Spine for Nerve Root Compression in a Developing Country, Is It Accurate and Cost Effective? Kiran Hilal; Zafar Sajjad; Raza Sayani; Dawar Khan // Asian Spine Journal;Sep2013, Vol. 7 Issue 3, p184
Study Design: Cross sectional study. Purpose: To determine the accuracy of the screening magnetic resonance study of the lumbar spine in the diagnosis of nerve root compression in cases of low back pain as compared to the routine magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) study of the lumbar spine....
- Differences in perfusion parameters between upper and lower lumbar vertebral segments with dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE MRI). Savvopoulou, Vasiliki; Maris, Thomas G.; Vlahos, Lampros; Moulopoulos, Lia Angela // European Radiology;Sep2008, Vol. 18 Issue 9, p1876
To investigate the influence of age, sex and spinal level on perfusion parameters of normal lumbar bone marrow with dynamic contrast-enhanced MRI (DCE MRI). Sixty-seven subjects referred for evaluation of low back pain or sciatica underwent DCE MRI of the lumbar spine. After subtraction of...
- MRI Criteria of Developmental Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Revisited. Chatha, Deep S.; Schweitzer, Mark E. // Bulletin of the NYU Hospital for Joint Diseases;2011, Vol. 69 Issue 4, p303
Purpose. It is somewhat surprising that radiographic criteria for lumbar stenosis have been transposed from radiography and CT to MR without scientific validation. As these radiographic criteria were developed via population studies with criteria defined by two standard deviations from the mean,...
