Delayed worsening of the surgical correction of angular and axial deformity consequent to burst fractures of the thoracolumbar or lumbar spine

Surgical Neurology
C BernucciG L Viale


Forty-one patients with burst fractures of the thoracolumbar junction, or the lumbar spine (T12 to L5), were followed for 6-48 months (mean follow-up = 19.9 months) after early surgery (usually within 24 hours). Preoperative, early postoperative, and late postoperative degrees of kyphosis, as well as percent reduction of the height of the vertebral body were calculated and compared. Early postoperative radiologic evaluations showed a statistically significant difference (p < 0.0001) between the mean values of both parameters calculated respectively before and after surgery. The decrease of the surgical correction, from the initial postoperative radiographs to follow-up, was statistically significant (p < 0.0001). However, the final values were better when compared with the preoperative features (p < 0.003 and p < 0.0001, respectively for degree of kyphosis and reduction in vertebral height.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Nuclear Pore Complex in ALS/FTD

Alterations in nucleocytoplasmic transport, controlled by the nuclear pore complex, may be involved in the pathomechanism underlying multiple neurodegenerative diseases including Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis and Frontotemporal Dementia. Here is the latest research on the nuclear pore complex in ALS and FTD.

Applications of Molecular Barcoding

The concept of molecular barcoding is that each original DNA or RNA molecule is attached to a unique sequence barcode. Sequence reads having different barcodes represent different original molecules, while sequence reads having the same barcode are results of PCR duplication from one original molecule. Discover the latest research on molecular barcoding here.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.
