Figure 1: (A) Preoperative plain X-ray of the lumbosacral spine (lateral view) in a 12-year-old girl showing a Meyerding grade III anterolisthesis of L5 over S1, an elongated intact pars interarticularis, lumbosacral kyphosis, vertically oriented sacrum with doming of the sacral endplate and a trapezoidal L5 (both indicative of chronic lumbosacral instability). (B) T2-weighted sagittal magnetic resonance imaging scan of the lumbosacral spine showing degeneration of the L5-S1 disc with severe spinal canal narrowing, anterolisthesis of L5 over S1 with doming of the sacral endplate
