Abstract: 【Objective】The purposes of this study were to classify the lesions of dialysis-associated spondylosis and evaluate the results of surgical treatment. 【Subjects and methods】The subjects were 87 patients (43 men and 44 women) who underwent surgery. These patients were studied in terms of lesion classification, surgical method, duration of dialysis, duration of surgery, intraoperative blood loss, and postoperative complications. 【Results】Among patients with cervical spine involvement, 13 had destructive spondyloarthropathy (DSA), 29 had amyloid deposition, and 8 had a dens axis lesion. Among patients with lumbar spine involvement, 20 had DSA, and 17 had amyloid deposition. With regard to 6 patients with a dens axis lesion involving atlantoaxial subluxation, each had posterior fusion (PF) of the occiput to the upper cervical spine. With regard to the patients with lumbar DSA, 10 patients had posterolateral fusion (PLF), 8 patients had posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) and 2 patients had laminectomy. The duration of dialysis in cases of a dens axis lesion varied between 25 and 35 years, with the mean duration being 28.9 years. 【Conclusions】All patients who underwent surgery for dens axis lesions were long-term dialysis patients who had been on dialysis for 25 years. Lumbar spine DSA was treated with PLIF in patients with lateral slipping and marked instability, with laminectomy in patients with a narrowed intervertebral disk space and no instability.
