    BACKGROUND CONTEXT: There are often multiple surgical treatment options for a spinal pathology. In addition, there is a lack of data that define differences in surgical treatment among surgeons in the United States.

    PURPOSE: To assess the surgical treatment patterns among neurologic and orthopedic spine surgeons in the United States for the treatment of one- and two-time recurrent lumbar disc herniation.

    STUDY DESIGN: Electronic survey.

    PATIENT SAMPLE: An electronic survey was delivered ...

    BACKGROUND: The relation between abnormalities in the lumbar spine and low back pain is controversial. We examined the prevalence of abnormal findings on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of the lumbar spine in people without back pain.

    METHODS: We performed MRI examinations on 98 asymptomatic people. The scans were read independently by two neuroradiologists who did not know the clinical status of the subjects. To reduce the possibility of bias in interpreting the studies, abnormal ...

    PURPOSE: To prospectively determine in patients with acute low back pain (LBP) or radiculopathy, the magnetic resonance (MR) imaging findings, prognostic role of these findings, and effect of diagnostic information on outcome.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: Institutional review board approval and informed consent were obtained. This study was HIPAA compliant. A total of 246 patients with acute-onset LBP or radiculopathy were randomized to either the early information arm of the study, with MR ...

    The purpose of this study was to investigate the presence of any correlation between recurrent radicular pain during the first six months following first surgery for herniated lumbar intervertebral disc and the amount of lumbar peridural fibrosis as defined by MR imaging. 197 patients who underwent first-time single-level unilateral discectomy for lumbar disc herniation were evaluated in a randomized, double-blind, controlled multicenter clinical trial. Clinical assessments, performed by ...

    OBJECTIVES: Cumulative head trauma may alter brain structure and function. We explored the relationship between exposure variables, cognition and MRI brain structural measures in a cohort of professional combatants.

    METHODS: 224 fighters (131 mixed martial arts fighters and 93 boxers) participating in the Professional Fighters Brain Health Study, a longitudinal cohort study of licensed professional combatants, were recruited, as were 22 controls. Each participant underwent computerised ...

    PURPOSE: We studied temporal changes of brain sodium and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in a temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) rat model using kainic acid (KA).

    METHODS: In situ three-dimensional 23Na magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and proton diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) were used. KA at a dose of 10 mg/kg body weight and 12 adult Sprague Dawley rats weighing 228-318 g (268 +/- 25 g) were used.

    RESULTS: Twenty-four hours after KA injection, magnetic resonance (MR) visible sodium ...

    Although the technology exists for accurate noninvasive screening for intracranial aneurysms, the efficacy of screening depends on several key parameters of the natural history of aneurysms. Recent studies suggest that the prevalence of intracranial aneurysms may reach 20% in the subpopulation of patients with a family history of these lesions; other key parameters are less certain. The authors investigated factors that impact the efficacy of screening to establish interim guidelines. ...

    STUDY DESIGN: Electronic survey.

    OBJECTIVE: To identify the surgical treatment patterns for low back pain (LBP), among U.S. spine surgeons. Specifically determine (1) differences in surgical treatment responses based on various demographic variables; (2) probability of disagreement based on surgeon subgroups.

    SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Multiple surgical and nonsurgical treatments exist for LBP. Without strong evidence or clear guidelines for the indications and optimal treatments, there ...
