Study of the Relationship Between the Anatomy and The Third Lumber Transverse Process Syndrome
Ni Chaomin et al
The region of the third lumbar transverse process in 20 corpses was measured and investigated anatomically and 106 cases of the third lumbar transverse process syndrome were analyzed clinically. Of them, 68 cases were male; 38 female, with age ranging from 13 to 66 years old. The total effective rate was 90.4%. They were followed up from 3 to 24 months. The relapse rate was 14.2%. It is concluded that the pulling stress on the end of the third lumbar transverse process was the largest among the lumbar transverse process. Injuries were the main cause of this syndrome. Nonoperation for the diseases was the first choice and prevention was the key of preventing its relapse.
