What the trial Lecture is about

The continuum from degenerative conditions to new onset deformity

This spine surgery lecture covers the continuum from degenerative conditions to new onset spinal deformity. It deals with the development of deformity caused by age related degeneration.

The basics of the concept of sagittal alignment are explained, followed by a description of the effects of position and size of cage on the restoration of lordosis, with pictorial representation of each scenario.

The restoration of balance using interbody fusion strategies including ALIF, PLIF, TLIF and DLIF are discussed.

Finally, the importance of proper patient positioning during surgery for the restoration of sagittal alignment is explained with the illustration of representative clinical pictures.
