Meeting Room 118+119
Controversies in Sagittal Alignment
Is there a relationship between Adjacent Segment Disease (ASD) and Sagittal Alignment?

Claudio Lamartina, Italy
Dominique Rothenfluh, UK
Martin Gehrchen, Denmark

ASD is a common complication of lumbar spinal fusion surgery, despite solid fusion at the treated level(s). Spinal fusion at the index level seems to create compensatory increases in motion at adjacent level. Multiple factors could cause ASD, however the importance of spinopelvic sagittal alignment is not well understood.

During this session you will learn:
• If and How alignment is associated with ASD
• Diagnostic value of sagittal parameters for ASD
• Practical tips and tricks to reduce ASD
• Considerations for adolescent patients
