In the last 2 years the incidence of tuberculosis of the spinal column is becoming more frequent and having different clinico-morphologic picture. This phenomenon is alarming sign as the residual of the use of dirty bombs and several radioactive materials in the surrounding dirty wars in the region. For demonstration click here! and here!

Anamnesis

bullet

The patient came to the clinic 07-January-2007 complaining of LBP for 15 years  with left sciatica. LSS-X-ray done 10-October-2006 showed II-III degree of L4-5 spondylolisthesis.

bullet

The patient was limping with agonizing pain  with exaggerated scoliotic stance.

bullet

On examination: the patient had weak dorsi and planterflexion both feet

bullet

MRI of the lumbar spine performed showing spondylolisthesis L4-5 with isthmolysis both sides.

bullet

Decompressive laminectomy L4 and 5 with foraminotomy for L4 and L5 roots both sides was achieved and all the compressive elements were eliminated.

bullet

Using the USS II pedicular screw system  with upper screws length 40 mm and diameter 6.2 mm  and the lower screws  with length 35 mm and diameter 6.2 mm, transpedicular screw fixation was achieved aided with crossing bridge.

bullet

The dura was very thin at the lower level, that a microscopic point caused CSF leak, which was stitched using 6 zero nylon.

bullet

Lateral to the rods , chips of harvested bone was inserted to achieve later bony fusion.

bullet

Routine closure of the wound and smooth postoperative recovery with improvement of the motor power both feet.

Comments:

bullet

Spondylolisthesis I-III degree with clinical manifestations and progressive clinical course, make it mandatory to perform transpedicular screw fixation.

bullet

The goal of such surgery is to eliminate the overmovement and remove the hypertrophied elements due to pseudojoints at the isthmolysis sites and decompress all the neural structures. Otherwise, the surgeon could unintentionally harm them, which is not the case, when he bring them under direct vision.
