I was diagnosed with rotatory levoscoliosis with degenerative changes of the facet through the lumbar spine and a posterior listhesis of L3 on L4 with anterior osteophytes. I want to know what oes that mean.
I am trying to find out the levoscoliosis means that your scoliosis is turning toward the left instead of right side. I have been trying to find out about the rotatory all I can find out about it is turning anterior means front osteophytes are also called bone spurs listhesis means displacement of a verebra immediately below it. Hope this helps I am also wanting to find out more about rotatory I am not sure if it means turning but thats all I can find about it. God Bless You
