Spondylolisthesis

Specialty of Orthopaedic surgery

Spondylolisthesis is a pathology that affects the spine, causing a displacement of the vertebrae. In children it commonly occurs between the fifth bone in the lumbar region and the first pelvic bone, and may be a congenital malformation or a sudden injury from acute trauma. Other causes that may result in spondylolisthesis are fractures resulting from certain sports activities such as gymnastics or weightlifting, where a great tension is concentrated on the bones of the lumbar region. Treatment depends on the severity of the displacement of the vertebra.
