Biomechanical effect of graded minimal-invasive decompression procedures on lumbar spinal stability
- Biomechanical comparison of lumbar spine instability between laminectomy and bilateral laminotomy for spinal stenosis syndrome -- an experimental study in porcine model. Ching-Lung Tai; Pang-Hsing Hsieh; Weng-Pin Chen; Lih-Huei Chen; Wen-Jer Chen; Po-Liang Lai // BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders;2008, Vol. 9, Special section p1
Background: The association of lumbar spine instability between laminectomy and laminotomy has been clinically studied, but the corresponding in vitro biomechanical studies have not been reported. We investigated the hypothesis that the integrity of the posterior complex (spinous...
- Minimally invasive surgical treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis: Two-year follow-up in 54 patients. Palmer, Sylvain; Davison, Lisa // Surgical Neurology International;2012, Vol. 3 Issue 1, p231
Objective: Minimally invasive surgery has seen increasing application in the treatment of spinal disorders. Treatment of degenerative spinal stenosis, with or without spondylolisthesis, with minimally invasive technique preserves stabilizing ligaments, bone, and muscle. Satisfactory results can...
- Estabilización dinámica interespinosa versus fijación transpedicular y artrodesis en el tratamiento del conducto lumbar estrecho en pacientes de 45 a 65 años de edad. Alpízar-Aguirre, A.; Guevara-Álvarez, A.; Rosales-Olivares, L. M.; Zárate-Kalfópulos, B.; Sánchez-Bringas, G.; Reyes-Sánchez, A. // Acta Ortopedica Mexicana;Nov/Dec2012, Vol. 26 Issue 6, p347
Introduction: Ligamentoplasty is a posterior dynamic stabilization method. The purpose of this study is to compare the incidence of adjacent segment disease in patients undergoing decompression and ligamentoplasty versus patients with standard 360° arthrodesis. Material and methods: Two groups...

- Biomechanical effect of different interspinous devices on lumbar spinal range of motion under preload conditions. Hartmann, Frank; Dietz, Sven-Oliver; Hely, Hans; Rommens, Pol Maria; Gercek, Erol // Archives of Orthopaedic & Trauma Surgery;Jul2011, Vol. 131 Issue 7, p917
Introduction: Interspinous devices are used as an alternative to the current gold standard treatment, decompressive surgery with or without fusion, for lumbar spinal stenosis. They are supposed to limit extension and expand the spinal canal and foramen at the symptomatic level, but still allow...

- Lumbar canal spinal stenosis due to axial skeletal calcinosis and heterotopic ossification in limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis: successful spinal decompression. Weerakoon, Anita; Sharp, David; Chapman, John; Clunie, Gavin // Rheumatology;Nov2011, Vol. 50 Issue 11, p2144
The article discusses a case of a patient with limited cutaneous systemic sclerosis (IcSSc) with lumbar canal spinal stenosis caused by calcinosis and heterotopic ossification that had successful decompressive spinal surgery. In the case of the 60-year-old female suffering from IcSSc for 12...
