from Becker's Spine Review
Stanford (Calif.) University Medical Center researchers compared decompression alone against fusion for treating degenerative spondylolisthesis. The study included administrative discharge records from California, Florida and New York inpatient, ambulatory and emergency department environments between 2005 and 2011. The researchers assessed 75,024 patients with spondylolisthesis, with 6,712 receiving decompression alone and 68,312 undergoing fusion.
