Long-term outcomes following intraosseous basivertebral nerve ablation for the treatment of chronic low back pain: 5-year treatment arm results from a prospective randomized double-blind sham-controlled multi-center study.

Jeffrey S Fischgrund, Alfred Rhyne, Kevin Macadaeg, Gregory Moore, Evish Kamrava, Christopher Yeung, Eeric Truumees, Michael Schaufele, Philip Yuan, Michael DePalma, David Greg Anderson, Douglas Buxton, James Reynolds, Michael Sikorsky,

BACKGROUND:Damaged or degenerated vertebral endplates are a significant cause of vertebrogenic chronic low back pain (CLBP). Modic changes are one objective MRI biomarker for these patients. Prior data from the treatment arm of a sham-controlled, RCT showed maintenance of clinical improvements at 2 years following ablation of the basivertebral nerve (BVN). ... Read more >>

Lumbar Spine Fusion Rates With Local Bone in Posterolateral and Combined Posterolateral and Interbody Approaches.

Daniel K Park, Richard Roberts, Paul Arnold, David H Kim, Rick Sasso, Kevin C Baker, Jeffrey S Fischgrund,

Posterolateral lumbar fusion (PLF) used to treat degenerative lumbar conditions still faces pseudarthrosis. Bone graft choice is a key factor; a traditional choice has been autologous iliac crest bone graft (ICBG), but complication rates are quoted up to 39%. Local bone from laminectomy eliminates ICBG harvesting complications. Methods:Two hundred forty-one ... Read more >>

Cement augmentation in vertebral burst fractures.

Anton V Zaryanov, Daniel K Park, Jad G Khalil, Kevin C Baker, Jeffrey S Fischgrund,

As a result of axial compression, traumatic vertebral burst fractures disrupt the anterior column, leading to segmental instability and cord compression. In situations with diminished anterior column support, pedicle screw fixation alone may lead to delayed kyphosis, nonunion, and hardware failure. Vertebroplasty and kyphoplasty (balloon-assisted vertebroplasty) have been used in ... Read more >>
