Five-year clinical and radiological results of combined anteroposterior stabilization of thoracolumbar fractures.
J Neurosurg Spine
PUBLISHED: 03-07-2014
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Despite promising early clinical results, the long-term outcome of the use of expandable titanium cages to reconstruct the anterior column after traumatic burst fractures is still unknown. The purpose of this prospective study was to assess the clinical and radiological outcomes of the use of expandable titanium cages 5 years postoperatively.

Diagnosis and treatment of a C2-osteoblastoma encompassing the vertebral artery.
Eur Spine J

Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Osteoblastoma is a rare, benign bone tumor that accounts for approximately 1 % of all primary bone tumors and 5 % of spinal tumors, mostly arising within the posterior elements of the spine within the second and third decades of life. Nonspecific initial symptoms mainly neck or back pain and stiffness of the spine remain often undiagnosed and the destructive nature of the expanding tumor can cause even neurological deficits. CT and MRI scans constitute the basic imaging modalities employed in diagnosis and preoperative planning with the former delineating the location and osseous involvement of the mass and the latter providing appreciation of the effect on soft tissues and neural elements.

Anterior, thoracoscopic-assisted reduction and stabilization of a thoracic burst fracture (T8) in a pregnant woman.
Eur Spine J

Hide Abstract
Injuries of the spine in pregnant women are rare. Unstable fractures, incomplete neurological deficits and failed conservative treatment are indications for operative stabilization. So far, only posterior stabilization techniques performed during pregnancy have been published in case reports. This Grand Round case presentation describes a 24-year-old woman in the 19th week of gestation who was involved in a motorcycle accident as a pillion rider. Radiological examination revealed a complete burst fracture (type AO A3.3) of T8 with a slight, yet clinical unapparent narrowing of the spinal canal and a stable T5 fracture (type AO A1.2). Despite analgesia with morphine, conservative treatment failed and it was not possible to mobilize the patient. Hence, an anterior thoracoscopic-assisted reduction and stabilization in left lateral position with single lung ventilation was performed as the therapy of choice. Intraoperatively, the body of T8 was removed and plate was used to stabilize and reduce the fracture. Finally, a tricortical iliac bone graft was implanted into the bony defect. Intraoperative fluoroscopy was merely used to verify the positioning of the implants. Postoperative examination of the foetus revealed normal findings. The patient was discharged with paracetamol as residual pain medication. The degree of kyphosis of the T8 fracture was successfully reduced from 20° to 13° (segmental standard value 12°). Further clinical and radiological course of the patient was uneventful. If suitable implants are available and good bone structure exists, solely anterior thoracoscopic-assisted reduction and stabilization of an unstable thoracic burst fracture can be performed safely. In the present case, it was possible to avoid intraoperative prone positioning of the pregnant patient as well as reaching a minimum of radiation exposure.

Temporary occipito-cervical stabilization of a unilateral occipital condyle fracture.
Eur Spine J
Show Abstract
Hide Abstract
Injuries of the occipital condyles are rare. While the majority of occipital condyle fractures can be treated conservatively, surgery is recommended in craniocervical misalignment and instability. Open reduction and temporary occipito-cervical stabilization might be an alternative to fusion or halo treatment.

What is Visualize?

JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.

How does it work?

We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.

Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...

In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
