Anamnesis

bullet

The patient came to the clinic 03-April-2013 complaining of LBP with left sciatica. She performed bilateral carpal tunnel release 7 days ago with resection of basal cell carcinoma of the nose. The patient underwent total knee replacement 2003 and 2005. She underwent fixation of the spine with transpedicular screws of L3, L4 and L5 after what her condition deteriorated due to wrong screw placement of the left lower screw. The patient is using walker to ambulate. MRI of the lumbar spine done 17-March-2013 showing severe stenosis with spondylolisthesis of L4-5. The patient is a known diabetic for 35 years.

On examination: The patient is limping using walker and it is difficult to evaluate the scoliotic stance. Hoffman sign was positive both sides. SLRS was 45 degrees right side and 25 degrees in the left with pain. Babinski was positive both sides. Weak dorsiflexion left foot -4/5 and right foot 4/5 with weak planterflexion left foot 4/5. There is diabetic neuropathy both feet with decreased sensation below the ankle joints.
