    In the lumbosacral region, anatomical variations occur with changes in the number of sacral vertebra either by deletion of first sacral vertebra or by the union of fifth lumbar or first coccygeal vertebra with sacrum. Lumbasacral transitional vertebrae (LSTV) is the most common congenital...

    Background: Surveys have demonstrated that wrong-site surgery of the spine is performed by up to 50% of spine surgeons over the course of a career. Inaccurate identification of appropriate vertebral levels is a common reason for wrong-site spine surgery. The present study examined the prevalence...

    Aim: The objective of this study was to display the transverse foramens (TFs) of cervical vertebrae with multidetector computed tomography (MDCT) and to identify their variations. Materials and methods: This study included 127 (63 women and 64 men) patients. The mean age was 46.4 years. MDCT...

    Background: Lumbo-sacral transitional variations are common in the general population. Structural inadequacies of the terminal lumbar vertebral pars interarticularis (PI) and lamina have often been implicated as important factors for lumbo-sacral instability. Aims: Quantifying dimensions of PI...

    The lumbosacral region is of interest because of increased incidence of low back pain resulting from stress and strain. The lumbosacral spine supports and transmits weight of the body to the inferior extremity and thus plays an important role in posture. In lumbosacral transitional vertebra...

    Ependymomas presenting with intratumoural and/or subarachnoid haemorrhages are seen rarely. These haemorrhages are mostly due to anticoagulation, epidural analgesia or pregnancy.
