    Hi I am trying to figure out what listesis means.

    I am looking at a medical report analyzing the result of a spinal column x-ray and a free standing sentence states:

    No hay lisis ni listesis.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Lisis = (Bone) Lysis = 30-50% change in mineral content of bone is necessary before radiographic change is seen
    Listesis = listhesis = to slip or slide; Ex. spondylolisthesis.
