原始语种摘要: Background: Coflex, a kind of dynamic interspinous spacer, has been widely used for the treatment of lumbar spinal stenosis in the past a few years. However, controversy remains as to whether dynamic interspinous spacer use is superior to traditional decompression and fusion surgery. High complication, reoperation rate, and costs with poor outcomes were also mentioned in the literature. The aim of the present study is to evaluate whether Coflex implantation following spinal decompression provided better clinical outcomes compared with traditional decompression and fusion for symptomatic lumbar spinal stenosis through midterm follow-up.;;Methods and findings: A total of 100 patients who were confirmed L4/5 lumbar spinal stenosis was surveyed from June 2007 to June 2010. They were randomly...
