Spondylolisthesis of l5 on s1 - Things You Didn't …

At times, direct visualization of a pars defect is difficult on sagittal MR images, and thus it may be difficult to determine whether a patient with spondylolisthesis has a degenerative origin or if the malalignment is due to spondylolysis. In such cases, characteristic ancillary findings can be utilized to differentiate degenerative spondylolisthesis from isthmic spondylolisthesis. An appearance that we have found to be highly characteristic of isthmic spondylolisthesis is the horizontal neural foramina sign. In patients with spondylolysis, the neural foramina often assume a horizontal configuration on far lateral sagittal images (9a,9b). This feature is not present in degenerative spondylolisthesis, and the configuration also accounts for radiculopathy due to foraminal stenosis in patients with more severe isthmic spondylolisthesis.

A quick sort of off topic question: do you feel there is any benefit to standing at desks or maybe even kneeling as opposed to sitting for long periods? I realize I should move around every 20-30min, but since I tend to spend alot of time as a desk even at home I’m just curious if there is any benefit to setting it up to where I stand instead of sit. Thanks again for the great info.
