Displacement of a vertebral body on the one below.
the slipping of a vertebra in the spine over the one below it
Forward displacement of one vertebra upon another, usually the fifth lumbar over the body of the sacrum or of the fourth lumbar over the fifth.
When one vertebra slips forward over another. This can be caused by wear and tear or weakness in the facet joints.
A defect in a vertebra between the pedicle and the lamina with forward displacement of the upper facet and the vertebra above.
Forward displacement of one lumbar vertebra.
Shift (or displacement) of the vertebra.
A slippage of one vertebra over another. This is a malalignment of the vertebral bones. It is usually due to a break in the posterior portion of one of the vertebra. It may be slight or severe. It is generally graded from Grade 1 (the best) to Grade 5 (the worst).
Spondylolysis with displacement of one of the vertebral bones forward of the one below.
An alignment abnormality of the spine in which one vertebra is displaced with respect to another. Forward slip of of one vertebra over another associated with a spondylolysis, high impact accidents especially in the cervical area and/or degenerative changes.
a forward dislocation of one vertebra over the one beneath it producing pressure on spinal nerves
the slipping of one vertebra onto another.
A condition where one vertebra slips out of alignment with another. Most common is the fourth over the fifth lumbar vertebra or the fifth over the sacrum. The causes can be congenital or due to structural defects, degenerative changes and injury. Some people have it without symptoms, but others have major pain and nerve-related symptoms.Called retrolisthesis if the slippage is backwards.
( spon-dill-o-liss-THEE-sis) â€” Forward movement of one of the lower lumbar vertebrae on the vertebra below it or upon the sacrum.
Slippage of one vertebra forward on the adjacent vertebra is called spondylolisthesis. It occurs most commonly in the lumbar (lower back) area and produces a general deformity of the lower spine along with a narrowing of the vertebral canal. Spondylolisthesis may develop during childhood or early adolescence in a weakened area of the vertebra, as a result of an injury, or due to degeneration later in life.
A condition in which one vertebra slips forward in relation to the vetebra below it.
Forward displacement of a vertebra over a lower segment, usually of the fourth and fifth lumbar.
Condition when the vertebrae are not lined up neatly right above one another. Most common at the junction of the last lumbar vertebra and the sacrum (tail bone) and usually not symptomatic.
Forward displacement of one vertebra over another; usually occurs at the 4th or 5th lumbar vertebrae.
Ventral subluxation of one vertebral body referable to the next vertebral body
A defect in the construct of bone between the superior and inferior facets with varying degrees of displacement so the vertebra with the defect and the spine above that vertebra are displaced forward in relationship to the vertebrae below. It Is usually due to a developmental defect or the result of a fracture.
Forward or backward displacement of one vertebra in the relation to the adjacent vertebra below. Depending on the amount of the displacement, spondylolisthesis may require surgical intervention to fuse the spine.
A loss of spinal column alignment that results from one vertebra slipping forward on top of another.
Forward displacement of one vertebrae over another below it due to a developmental defect in the vertebrae.
Forward displacement of one vertebra on its lower neighbour. Most commonly seen at L5/S1. The degree of spondylolisthesis is determined by the distance the slipped vertebra travels on its lower counterpart - Grades 1 - 4. Most commonly described as: congenital, spondylolytic, traumatic, degenerative or pathological. Can often be found incidentally.
forward displacement of one vertebra on its lower neighbor.
Manifested by an increase in lumbar curvature or by a chronic low back pain with occasional lightening of the hamstring muscles.
(see spondylolysis) refers to a crack in a defective vertebra that widens and causes back trouble. At first glance the term seems impossible to pronounce but if you break it down it makes sense. Spondyl means "vertebra" and olisthesis is the Greek word for "slip." If the spondylolysis crack widens sufficiently, the front portion of the vertebra, which is detached from the rear, can gradually slip forward in relation to the vertebra below. In its mild form, spondylolisthesis may remain undetected. More severe cases usually respond to conservative treatment, which includes an exercise program to strengthen the muscles in the weakened area.
Slip of one vertebral body with respect to the adjacent vertebral body.
Forward displacement or slippage (subluxation) of one vertebra over another.
forward slippage of one vertebra on the vertebra below
Forward subluxation of the body of a lumbar vertebra on the vertebra below.
a condition in which a vertebra of the lumbar (lower) spine slips out of place.
Forward displacement of one vertebra on another
a degenerative disc change in the vertebrae where a disc slips forward, bringing it out of line with the adjacent vertebrae.
an anterior displacement of a vertebra on the adjacent lower vertebra.
The partial forward dislocation of one vertebrae over the one below it. A condition in which a fracture occurs in the pars inarticularis of the vertebrae. This often leads to a spondylolisthesis.
An advanced case of facet joint disorder in which spinal joints slip forward.
Spondylolisthesis (not to be confused with spondylosis or spondylolysis) is an anteroposterior translatory movement of two spinal vertebrae in relationship to each other caused by instability between the two involved vertebrae. The instability can be caused by degenerative changes of the facet joints, or by congenital or traumatic disruption of the pars interarticularis of the upper of the two vertebrae. It occurs most commonly in the lumbar spine.
