If slippage continues or if your pain doesn’t respond to conservative treatment, surgery may be necessary. Surgery can address both the instability of the spine and compression of the nerve roots. The surgeon may first perform a lumbar laminectomy to relieve pressure on the nerve root. Then a bone graft will be used to fuse the loose vertebrae and keep them from sliding out of place. In some cases metal plates, hooks, rods and screws may be used to support the fusion (Fig. 5). It may take a while for the two pieces of bone to grow together, so you should avoid extremes of motion while healing.
The most common level it is found is at L5-S1, although spondylolisthesis can occur at L4-5 and rarely at a higher level.
Adult isthmic spondylolisthesis most commonly occurs at the L5–S1 level of the lumbar spine.
With aging of the population, degenerative lumbarspinal stenosis (DLSS) is becoming an increasingly common spinaldisease. DLSS is often characterized by radiological findings ofmultilevel disc herniation and lumbar spondylolisthesis and isdifficult to treat. Although there has been a series ofimprovements in surgical technique, the traditional laminectomywith interbody or posterolateral fusion from the posterior approachcontinues to be widely used. However, multilevel fusion causesgreat damage to the normal structure, prolongs recovery time andmay result in chronic lower back pain (). In the current study, we evaluated thecombined use of microendoscopic discectomy (MED) and minimallyinvasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MI-TLIF) for thetreatment of multilevel DLSS with spondylolisthesis, which hadsatisfactory short-term clinical outcomes, and compared thecombined surgery with the traditional lumbar interbody fusion fromthe posterior midline approach (PLIF).
Spondylolisthesis is most often caused by spondylolysis. The cause of spondylolysis is not as clearly defined. Most believe it is due to a genetic weakness of the pars interarticularis. Both spondylolysis and spondylolisthesis can be present at birth or occur through injury. Repeated stress fractures caused by hyperextension of the back (as in gymnastics and football) and traumatic fractures are also causes. The most common cause in adults is degenerative arthritis.
Most spondylolytic defects and cases of Spondylolisthesis are congenital. The prevalence of Spondylolisthesis in the general population is about 5% and is about equal in men and women. Spondylolysis and Spondylolisthesis most frequently involve L5, although L4 can also be affected and, rarely, more proximal levels.

Is it possible to prevent spondylolisthesis.
This in-depth discussion about spondylolisthesis explains what causes a vertebra to slip and what the different grades (eg, grade 1 spondylolisthesis).
Spondylolisthesis most commonly affects the lower lumbar spine, typically at the L4/5 or L5/S1 levels.
Dysplastic Spondylolisthesis results from congenital abnormalities of the upper sacral facets or inferior facets of the fifth lumbar vertebra that allow slipping of L5 on S1.
Having a slipped disc in your back may cause moderate to severe.

A slipped disc is also commonly called spondylolisthesis.
Spondylolisthesis is a spinal condition that involves the slipping of one spinal vertebra over the one immediately underneath.
Isthmic Spondylolisthesis is produced when bones connecting the facet joints in the posterior spine are fractured causing anteriolisthesis of the vertebra.
In Spondylolisthesis with a significant slip, a step-off at the lumbosacral junction is palpable, motion of the lumbar spine is restricted, and hamstring tightness is evident on straight leg raising. As the vertebral body displaces anteriorly, the individual assumes a lordotic posture above the level of the slip to compensate for the displacement. Adults may have objective signs of nerve root compression, such as motor weakness, reflex change, or sensory deficit. These signs are seldom seen in children.
Minimally invasive transforaminallumbar interbody fusion (MI-TLIF) was performed for the segmentwith spondylolisthesis by the paraspinal approach via a Quadrantworking channel using a single cage and pedicle rod-screwsystem.
