KOL-Index: 68 Much progress has been made in neuroimaging with Magnetic Resonance neurography and Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) owing to higher magnetic fields and improvements in pulse sequence technology. Reports on lumbar nerve DTI have also increased considerably. Many studies have shown that the use of DTI in lumbar nerve lesions, such as lumbar foraminal stenosis and lumbar disc herniation, makes ...

KOL-Index: 45 OBJECTIVEThe purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between vertebral bodies, psoas major morphology, and the course of lumbar nerve tracts using diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) before lateral interbody fusion (LIF) to treat spinal deformities.METHODSDTI findings in a group of 12 patients (all women, mean age 74.3 years) with degenerative lumbar scoliosis (DLS) were compared ...

KOL-Index: 39 Diagnosis of lumbar foraminal stenosis remains difficult. Here, we report on a case in which bilateral lumbar foraminal stenosis was difficult to diagnose, and in which diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) was useful. The patient was a 52-year-old woman with low back pain and pain in both legs that was dominant on the right. Right lumbosacral nerve compression due to a massive uterine myoma was ...

KOL-Index: 39 OBJECTIVE: It is important to develop an easy means of diagnosing lumbar foraminal stenosis (LFS) in a general practice setting. We investigated the use of the Japanese Orthopaedic Association Back Pain Evaluation Questionnaire (JOABPEQ) to diagnose LFS in symptomatic patients. METHODS: Subjects included 13 cases (mean age, 72 years) with LFS, and 30 cases (mean age, 73 years) with lumbar ...

KOL-Index: 23 STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective observational study. PURPOSE: We considered the relationship between spinal alignment and skeletal muscle mass on clinical outcomes following a surgery for lumbar spinal stenosis (LSS). OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE: There are no reports of preoperative factors predicting residual low back pain following surgery for LSS. METHODS: Our target population included 34 women ...

KOL-Index: 19 BACKGROUND CONTEXT: A double-crush lesion is a condition in which the lumbar nerve is compressed both medially and laterally in the spinal canal, where diagnosis can be very difficult, and is a factor leading to poor surgical success rates. PURPOSE: Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) was used to determine DTI parameter fractional anisotropy (FA) values and apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) in ...

KOL-Index: 19 BACKGROUND: Age-related sarcopenia may cause physical dysfunction. We investigated the involvement of sarcopenia in dropped head syndrome (DHS). METHODS: Our study subjects were ten elderly women with idiopathic DHS (mean age 75.1 years, range 55-89). Twenty age- and sex-matched volunteers (mean age 73.0, range 58-83) served as controls. We used a bioelectrical impedance analyzer (BIA) to ...

KOL-Index: 12 BACKGROUND: Age-related sarcopenia can cause various forms of physical disabilities. We investigated how sarcopenia affects degenerative lumbar scoliosis (DLS) and lumbar spinal canal stenosis (LSCS). METHODS: Subjects comprised 40 elderly women (mean age 74 years) with spinal disease whose chief complaints were low back pain and lower limb pain. They included 15 cases of DLS (mean ...

KOL-Index: 12 BackgroundSeveral studies have reported varus-valgus stability in the extension position after total knee arthroplasty (TKA). However, few studies have evaluated joint laxity in the flexion position postoperatively. The purpose of the study was to evaluate joint laxity against distal traction force on flexion after cruciate-retaining and posterior-stabilized total knee ...
