Abstract
We studied the lumbar spines of 117 adults (39 women and 78 men) with spon- dylolysis unrelated to low back pain using multidetector computed tomography (CT). Of the 117 subjects with spondylolysis, including five with multiple-level spondylolysis, there were 124 vertebrae with spondylolysis. In adult lumbar spines with unilateral spondy- lolysis, there was no significant difference between the incidence of spondylolisthesis in female and male subjects. However, in those with bilateral spondylolysis, there was a sig- nificantly higher incidence of spondylolisthesis in female subjects (90.9% than in males (66.2% Furthermore, females with bilateral spondylolysis h...
