Lumbar degenerative spondylolisthesis clinical features

Spondylolisthesis is one of the reasons of low back pain and leg pain with most often compression of L4, L5, and S1 nerve roots 1).

The nerve root compression within the lumbar intervertebral foramen is the main problem in patients with spondylolisthesis who has radicular signs. Especially in patients who have degenerative spondylolisthesis or low-grade dysplastic type spondylolisthesis, foraminal stenosis gets worse in time due to disruption of the disc. The volume of the foraminal space starts to decrease when sliding of vertebra begins, and this decrease gets worse in time with destruction of the disc 2) 3).
