The surgical procedures involved T10, T11, L1, L2, and L3 laminectomy with pedicle screw fixation and intertransverse fusion [Figure 1]f,[Figure 1]g,[Figure 1]h.
Van Der Plaats et al [44] studied the possible cases with their hypothesis on whether unilateral postponement of growth of MM Rotatores or of ligamentum flavum and intertransverse ligament by varying their stiffness initiated the scoliosis.
But if the listhesis is reduced, the tension of the roots does disappear, and also the transverse processes come into same level to put the intertransverse graft.
The examined sites (9 pairs) were the following: the occiput (at the suboccipital muscle insertions), the low cervical area (at the anterior aspects of the intertransverse spaces at C5-C7), the trapezius muscle (at the midpoint of the upper border), the supraspinatus muscles (at their origins), the second rib (at the costochondral junctions), 2 cm distal to the lateral epicondyle), the upper outer quadrant of the buttocks, posterior to the greater trochanteric prominence, and the knees (at the medial fat pad proximal to the joint line).
Medial Intertransverse Approach to far lateral lumbar disc herniation: surgical technique and results
A Prospective Study Comparing Decompression with Decompression and Intertransverse Process Arthrodesis.
This was not statistically significant, but the presence of bridging bone across the intertransverse process region was dissimilar.
The interconnected high porous structure of hydroxyapatite seems to be promising for the environment of posterolateral lumbar intertransverse process spine fusion (PLF) in the point of producing fusion mass with higher cellular viability (109,110).
Ureteral injury after inadvertent violation of the intertransverse space during posterior lumbar diskectomy: a case report.
Eighteen tender points were; the suboccipital muscle insertions, the anterior aspects of the intertransverse spaces at C5-C7, the midpoint of the upper border of trapezius muscle, origins of supraspinatus muscle above the scapula spine near the medial border, second rib at the second costochondral junctions, just lateral to the junctions on upper surfaces, lateral epicondyle at 2 cm distal to the epicondyle, gluteal region in upper outer quadrants of buttocks in anterior fold of muscle, greater trochanter, medial fat pad proximal to the knee joint line bilaterally.
