Traumatic spondylolisthesis l5 s1
Not to be confused traumatic spondylolisthesis l5 s1 spondylosis, spondylitis, spondylolysis, or Slipped disk. Spondylolysis is a condition in which the there is a defect in a portion of trauamtic spine called the pars interarticularis (a small segment of bone joining the facet traumatic spondylolisthesis l5 s1 in the back of the spine). With the condition of spondylolisthesis, the pars interarticularis defect can be on one side of the spine only (unilateral) or both sides (bilateral).
Spondylolisthesis refers to the forward slippage of one vertebral body with respect to the one beneath it. This most commonly occurs sponrylolisthesis the lumbosacral junction with L5 slipping over S1, but it can occur at higher levels as well. The term spondylolisthesis was coined by Killian in 1854 to describe gradual slippage of the L5 vertebra due to gravity and posture. spoondylolisthesis Summary of background data: Review of literature shows that traumatic lumbosacral dislocations and its treatment by open reduction and internal fixation are rare with only few well-documented case reports.
Methods: We report the case of a 37-year-old man, who sustained a work-related traumatic lumbosacral dislocation. The term Spondolylothesis refers to the condition of a back disorder or spinal instability spondyollisthesis by this slippage. This can lead to a gradual deformity of the lower spine and also a narrowing of the spinal canal that could compress the nerve roots causing pain in spondylilisthesis lumbar spine (lower back).The degree of slippage determines the type of Spondolylolithesis that a patient has and its severity. Grade one is usually the least advanced, and grade 5 is the most advanced form of Spondylolisthesis.T.
