Best answer: retrolisthesis is the relative posterior displacement of vertebra on the one below it retrolisthesis is the result of degenerative disc changes retrolisthesis is the result of degenerative disc changes. What is retrolisthesis this is a medical condition in which a vertebra in your spine becomes displaced and moves forward or backward in most instances of vertebrae slippage it will involve a forward movement of an upper vertebra, which will slip toward your chest. Percent retrolisthesis was calculated by dividing the backwards subluxation of l5 by the anteroposterior diameter of s1 t1 and t2 axial and sagittal images were also used to assess the degenerative changes at the l5-s1 level.

Grades four different grades are used to measure the severity of a retrolisthesis grade one is the most minor, with the vertebra only slightly misaligned (up to 25 percent), while grade four is the worst, with the vertebra completely misaligned. Retrolisthesis l5-s 1 based on spondylolysis l5, adjacent segment disease l4-l5, and foraminal stenosis proposed treatment plan: l5-s1 fusion by axialif which is per coccygeal auf l4-l5 interspinous spacer implantation.
Anterolisthesis is a spine condition in which the upper vertebral body, the drum-shaped area in front of each vertebrae, slips forward onto the vertebra below the amount of slippage is graded on a scale from 1 to 4. Retrolisthesis is a relatively rare degenerative spinal disc condition that originates in the lower area of the spine the condition may cause lower back and lower extremity pain in some cases. A retrolisthesis is a posterior displacement of one vertebral body with respect to the adjacent vertebrae retrolisthesis may lead to symptoms of greatly varying intensity and distribution this is because of the variable nature of the impact on nerve tissue and of the mechanical impact on the spinal joints themselves. Traumatic retrolisthesis is a rare injury and may result in intervertebral disc extrusion and nerve root injury these injuries are highly unstable and require surgery for decompression and stabilization traumatic retrolisthesis of l5 with acute l5/s1 disc extrusion associated with nerve root.
Retrolisthesis is the term used to define a degenerative and an acute spine condition in which a single vertebra gets displaced and moves backwards onto the vertebra lying immediately below it. An annular tear at the l4-l5 vertebral level is an extremely common form of spinal degeneration as the spine ages, the pressure of increased body weight and years of repetitive motions begin to wear down the components of the spine, placing pressure on the vertebrae and compressing the discs. I was diagnosed with 3mm retrolisthesis on l4,l5 and l5,s1 i also have severe disc narrowing of those levels,ddd and bulges that are up to 4mm i have moderate to severe pain 24/7, along with spasm and stiffness.

Spondylolisthesis most commonly affects the lower lumbar spine, typically at the l4/5 or l5/s1 levels spondylolisthesis is a very common condition, occurring in about 5% of the population the most common type of spondylolisthesis is a degenerative slip that occurs at the l4/5 level.
Spondylolisthesis is a slipping of vertebra that occurs, in most cases, at the base of the spine spondylolysis, which is a defect or fracture of one or both wing-shaped parts of a vertebra, can result in vertebrae slipping backward, forward, or over a bone below causes of spondylolisthesis there are many causes for spondylolisthesis. I had a posterior/ anterior 360 of the l5 s1 dec 27, 2013 have had a lot of pain and numbness, loss of bladder and bowel and a lot of other trouble had an mri with and w/o contrast a week ago the mri findings show that i have endplate degenerative disease and mild anterolisthesis at the l5 s1.
