ABSTRACT

Objective:To compare the optimal gridpercutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP) and conventional PVP in the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures (OVCFs).Methods:A retrospective cohort study was conducted of 102 patients with OVCFs who had underwent PVP between May 2016 and May 2019 at department of spine surgery, General Hospital of Northern Theater Command. According to the different surgical methods, they were divided into the optimalgrid PVP group (102 cases) and conventional PVP group (94 cases). In the optimal grid PVP group, there were 38 males and 64 females with an average age of 67.3±8.5 years old, and the course of disease was 2.3±1.2 days; the injured sites were lumbar vertebra, including 59 cases of L 1 vertebra, 31 cases of L 2 vertebra, 8 cases of L 3 vertebra, 3 cases of L 4 vertebra and 1 case of L 5 vertebra. In the conventional PVP group, there were 26 males and 68 females with an average age of 71.5±5.6 years old, and the course of disease was 2.1±1.1 days; the injured sites were lumbar vertebra, including 52 cases of L 1 vertebra, 33 cases of L 2 vertebra, 7 cases of L 3 vertebra and 2 cases of L 4 vertebra. The patients were prepared before operation. Then the best puncture point was selected, and the guide wire and working channel were inserted. Finally the bone cement was pushed. The operation time, intraoperative fluoroscopy times, bone cement dosage and bone cement leakage were compared between the two groups. Visual analogue scale (VAS), anterior heights and median heights of injured vertebra were compared between the two groups at postoperative 3 days, 3 months and the final follow-up. Results:There were no significant differences in the general clinical data between the two groups before operation ( P>0.05). All patients had no complications such as wound infection,pulmonary embolism,spinal cord embolism or death. The operation time, fluoroscopy times, bone cement dosage and bone cement permeability of the two groups were statistically significant different ( P<0.05), and the optimal grid group was better than the conventional group. VAS at 3 days, 3 months and the final follow-up was statistically significantlower in the optimal grid group than the conventional group ( P<0.05). There was no significant difference in the recovery of the anterior and middle edge heights of injured vertebra in the two groups 3 days after operation ( P>0.05), but there were statistical significant difference between the two groups3 months after operation and at the last follow-up ( P<0.05), whilethe optimal grid group was better than the conventional group. Conclusion:Compared with conventional PVP, the optimal grid PVP is safer and more effective in the treatment of osteoporotic vertebral compression fractures.

ABSTRACT

Objective The aim of this study was to provide methods for predicting ideal trajectory and position of C1 lateral mass screw (C1 LMS)from plain radiographs.Methods A total of 40 consecutive subjects (with 79 screws)who had undergone C1 LMS placement were enrolled.To evaluate the C1 LMS position,the positions of screw head and tips on anteroposterior radiographs,screw length,and height on lateral radiograph were graded as 0°,Ⅰ°,and Ⅱ°,respectively.On the postoperative computed tomography images,the lateral mass (LM) perforation,screw-thread engagement percent(%),bicortical fixation,extruded screw length,and violation of adjacent joints were analyzed. Results Screws with tip located medial to LM(tip 0)showed LMperforation in all cases.Polyaxial head located within the LM(head 0)or crossing the lateral margin of the LM(head Ⅰ)showed no LMperforation.Screw-thread engagement percent was the highest with head Ⅰ-tip Ⅰ (medial half of LM)position (97.6%),followed by head 0-tip Ⅰ (90.5%)and head Ⅰ-tip Ⅱ (lateral half of LM)(86.4%). Screws longer than the posterior half of C1 anterior arch (AA)showed bicortical fixation in all cases with mean extruded screw length of 1.9 mm.Adjacent joint was not violated in 98%,with the screw height below half of C1 AA.Conclusion On an anteroposterior radiograph, a C1 LMS with the screw head located on the lateral margin of the LMand with the screw tip in the medial half of the LMresulted in the safest and longest trajectory.On lateral radiograph,a screw tip that is placed within the anterior-inferior quadrant of the C1 AA results in safe bicorti-cal fixation without injury to the adjacent structures.These plain radiographic findings may be helpful bothpostoperatively and intraoperatively for assessing the trajectory and length of the screw.

Objective To investigate prospectively the diagnostic significance of ulnar/median nerve amplitude ratio in motor neuron disorders.Methods Patients referral to our department between May 2009 and February 2012,due to muscle weakness,inflexible,cramps and atrophy,were consecutively enrolled.Conventional nerve conduction studies of 4 extremities (using surface electrodes) and needle electromyography were performed in all patients with fixed examiner.The compound muscle action potentials (CMAP) were recorded from abductor digiti minimi (ADM) and abductor pollicis brevis (APB) with stimulation of ulnar and median nerve at wrist,respectively.Moreover,the ratio of CMAP amplitude between ADM and APB (ADM/APB) was calculated in the patients who met the diagnostic criteria for definite amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and Hirayama disease (HD).The patients with Guillain-Barré syndrome (GBS) and other popyneuropathies (PN) were served as case-controls,and 34 healthy volunteers (aged (45.7 ± 16.3) years) as normal-controls.Results (1) There were 78 cases with ALS,25 HD,51 GBS and 140 other PN,with the mean age(years) of 54.7 ± 11.6,17.6 ± 2.2,41.3 ± 18.4 and 57.1 ± 14.3,respectively.(2) ADM/APB in the ALS subgroup was 2.28 ±2.87 (0.12-22.38),HD0.66±0.36 (0.05-1.34),GBS 1.42 ± 1.33 (0.25-9.85),other PN 1.36 ± 1.48 (0.08-14.44) and normal-controls 1.07 ± 0.28 (0.61-1.64,F =6.872,P =0.000),respectively.(3) The areas under receiver operator characteristic curve in patients with ALS was 0.830 (s-x =0.039) and HD 0.691 (sx =0.039,P =0.000) ; the diagnostic sensitivity and specificity for ALS patients were 36.7% and 93.3%,respectively,with cutoff value of ADM/APB =2; and the diagnostic sensitivity and specificity for HD patients were 53.6% and 89.0%,respectively,with cutoff value of ADM/APB =0.7.Conclusions The ulnar/median CMAP amplitude ratio increases in ALS,but decreases in HD,which may be served as a relatively specific electrophysiological index.ADM/APB amplitude ratio > 2.0 is suggested to be a diagnostic parameter for ALS and < 0.7 for HD.
