Spondylolisthesis is a condition of the spine where one of the vertebra slips out its position onto the bone below or above it. Forward slippage of an upper vertebra on a lower vertebra is referred to as anterolisthesis, while backward slippage is referred to as retrolisthesis. Spondylolisthesis can lead to a deformity of the spine as well as a narrowing of the spinal canal (spinal stenosis) or compression of the exiting nerve roots (foraminal stenosis).
