The most common type of spondylolisthesis occurs due to fracture of the pars interarticularis, with L5/S1 being the most frequent level... Other common presentations besides musculoskeletal pain and radiculopathy are related to degenerative disc disease and spinal stenosis when present... Lastly, type V is pathologic spondylolisthesis, such as displacement following a fracture due to a neoplasm... Oblique views are also helpful to view the pars interarticularis, which is often described as a “Scotty dog” (the eye is the pedicle, the ear is the superior articular process, and a fracture of the par interarticularis is described as the collar and appears as a lucency)... CT imaging is often used to confirm the diagnosis as well as to better define bony defects, whether it be a fracture of the pars interarticularis, fractures elsewhere allowing displacement, or other bony anomalies... Spondylolysis involvement is twice as common in men compared to women, and etiologies such as dysplastic and degenerative are more common in women... Eskimos have an incidence as high as 50% in adults for reasons unknown... Treatments are typically performed by orthopedic surgeons or neurosurgeons when symptoms and disability are determined severe enough... Treatment includes fixation with hardware and fusion of the involved vertebra... There are no interventional radiological treatments yet.
