Spondylolisthésis L4/L5 après réduction et stabilisation par greffe antérieure et postéro-latérale d'un spondylolisthésis L5/S1 à grand déplacement. [L4/L5 spondylolisthesis following reduction and stabilization by anterior and posterolateral graft of L5/S1 spondylolisthesis with major displacement]
Case Reports English Abstract Journal Article
40 children and adolescents, recurrence of a spondylolisthesis after posterior or even postero-lateral fusion is a well known fact. Anterior fusion added to the posterior graft is said to prevent such and occurrence. We report a case of a L4/L5 listhesis which followed near complete reduction of a 70% L5/S1 slip fixed by a combined approach. We think this is due to the persisting lumbo-sacral postural abnormalities and that while reducing and fixing the spondylolisthesis one should restore physiological posture to prevent this recurrence at the same level or at a higher one.
