Isthmic Lumbar Sacral Spondylolisthesis in Adults

Isthmic spondylolisthesis involves the breakage of a bone in the low back that allows the vertebra to slip forward. Read this article to understand the causes of isthmic spondylolisthesis. Several illustrations show you how it develops.

Isthmic Spondylolisthesis and Degenerative Spondylolisthesis

Isthmic spondylolisthesis should be differentiated from degenerative spondylolisthesis, which occurs due to the aging process along with the development of marked facet joint arthritis with rotatory vertebral slip.

Isthmic Spondylolisthesis: Adult Slip Progression

In the last decade, adult onset slip progression, spondylolisthesis, was recognized and described in the medical literature as a distinct clinical entity causing severe incapacitating back and leg pain.

Isthmic Spondylolisthesis: Symptoms and Diagnosis

Serial x-rays (radiographs) of the lumbar spine may be helpful to establish a diagnosis of isthmic spondylolisthesis. These x-rays are taken over a period of several years.

Management of Isthmic Spondylolisthesis in Adults

The use of modern spinal instrumentation eliminates the need for post-operative bracing. Soon after surgery, the patient can get on his feet and walk, as tolerated.

Novel Radiation-Free Assessment of Scoliosis and the Cobb Angle

The Ortelius800® is a new non-invasive radiation-free 3-D imaging system for the diagnosis and monitoring of scoliosis and other spinal deformities.

Scoliosis and the Cobb Angle: Novel Radiation-Free Assessment

The Ortelius800® system instantaneously creates a graphical reconstruction of the spine, displaying calculated angle of deformity (Cobb angle), leg length discrepancy, and data on the patient's torso in real time.

Novel Radiation-Free Assessment of Scoliosis and the Cobb Angle

The Ortelius800® is a new non-invasive radiation-free 3-D imaging system for the diagnosis and monitoring of scoliosis and other spinal deformities.
