5 mm anterolisthesis of L5 on s1, discogenic disease at l4-l5 and l5-s1, arthritic changes of the facets joints at l4l5, l5-s1, mild flattening L4 l2?
Degenerative Disease: What you are describing are arthritic changes in the lumbar spine, what question are you asking, as I am unclear as to what you want to ask! ...Read more
slight displacement: Slight displacement of the bones on each other. If not mobile, unlikely to cause problems. ...Read more
Xray Report = 6 mm anterior listhesis of L5 on S1; evidence of spondylolysis defect at L5 level; severe interspace narrowing L5-S1." I'm in pain!
Grade 1 anterolisthesis of L5 over s1 with fatty marrow conversion at left L5 pars inter articular with bowing indicative of a healed fracture, 22yo/m?
Spondylolisthesis L5: You have described what is probably a congenital condition with a defect in the pars interarticularis. The symptoms may have become apparent after some trauma. 90% of the time people of this condition can be treated conservatively with a lumbosacral brace and analgesics. If symptoms worsen, further imaging may include MRI or ct with intrathecal contrast. Decompression and fusion may become neces. ...Read more
There's grade 2 anterolisthesis of L5 on s1 with severe loss of disk height. Moderate loss of disk height at l3-4 and l4-5. Pars defects l5. Needsurg?
Not necessarily: Those findings are relatively common, especially in persons who have practiced sports in their younger age. Surgery is only recommended on the basis of disabling symptoms, and after conservative treatment and alternative measures such as epidural injections have failed. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What does Bilateral L5 pars fractures with grade 1 anterolisthesis of L5 S1 and L5 S1 mild to moderate diffuse disk bulge mean?
See below : There is a term called isthmic spondylolisthesis that summarizes what you have. Basically at some point you developed a fracture in a part of the spine known as the pars interarticularis and this allowed one of your vertebrae to shift forward on the other. It is a fairly common cause of back and leg pain. Many good treatment options. Discuss directly with your doctor. ...Read more
Bulging of l5/s1 combined w loss of disc space height causing moderate bilateral neural foraminal stenosis slight compression of L5 nerve roots?
Xr lumbar spine there is some irregularity of the inferior end plate L5 increased sclerosis of the articular processes throughout the lumbar spine, ?
Fairly common: Description for imaging by age 30 relating more to age relatd degenerative changes particularly at the lower two disc spaces ascwell as involving the small joints or articular processes of the back with two facet joints found at each disc level. This can be further affcted if one smokes ;/or obese. Genetics also play a role while ther is mixed data as to other possible environmental causes. ...Read more
"Xr lumbar spine there is some irregularity of the inferior end plate L5 increased sclerosis of the articular processes throughout the lumbar spine, ?"
Varies : Increased sclerosis on the articular processes throughout the spine is another way to say you have diffuse arthritic changes in you spine. The end plate irregularity is harder to say without seeing the film, it can also represent a change seen in arthritis, but can also represent a fracture or even be seen in an infection of the vertebrae. You should see your doctor to go through it with you. ...Read more
My l4 l5 discs have small bulge without significant compression. L5 S1 has reduced disc space and bilateral sacrelization of L5. What should I do?
Nothing: Research has shown that the findings on imaging studies do not correlate all the time with patient symptoms. If you have no problems then don't worry about it. If you have back pain, it is more likely to be associated with muscle strain than the bulging disc. Sacralization is common on of no real signficance. ...Read more
My X-ray of l/s spine ap/lat shows minimal anterir lysthesis of L4 over L5 with degenrative changes.
What it means ?
Spondylolisthesis: It literally translates to mean a spine bone slipping . Think of the spine as a stack of a child's abc blocks being perfectly aligned in a tower formation and then pushing one a little over another & that displacement is what a spondylolisthesis is in the spine with one bone slipped or displaced over another. There are several different types including degenerative. They rarely progress ...Read more
Interval bony consolidation of the L5 pars fractures bilaterally. Coronal alignment is normal, exception of positional leaning to the left. explain?
Ok: So, you initially had fractures in an area of the spine knows as the pars interarticularis, consolidation suggests they have now healed. The alingnment if the spine when viewed from the back is normal. I would not hesitate to go through your study with the person that ordered it as well. ...Read more
Lateral cervical spine, Loss of normal cervical lordosis. Evidence of spondylotic changes C5/6 with posterior osteophyte formation?
Slip-n-slide: It means instead of in the "straight" line the spinal vertebrae should be stacked in, the L5 vertebra is slid back "minimally" compared to where it should sit based on the position of the s1 vertebra. This happens here commonly, and is graded, because in some folks, when severe, can cause nerve impingement issues. ...Read more
MRI:Straightening of lumbarspine with suggestion of sacralisation of L5 vertebral body.Mild posterior disc bulge seen at L4-5 level
Cause of backpain?
I would like to ask about m xray result:
Loss of lumbar lordosis
L5 seen sacralized
Spna bifida L5
L5-S1 is narrowed
Disc prolapse L5-S1?
It is not: Aspies don't understand other people or why their odd behavior often provokes such bad reactions. By contrast, a sociopath is indifferent to the feelings of others and may get pleasure from making others unhappy. Aspies are educable and often grateful -- a treated aspie looks back with regret ; is often eager to do good for others. You can't reach a sociopath. ...Read more
