Extract

A 76-year-old man presented with left-sided hip pain radiating to the leg and foot for 4 weeks. He was a former smoker. The patient’s medical history included coronary artery disease, benign prostatic hypertrophy, and mild chronic renal impairment (serum creatinine, 1.5 mg/dL). Other previous blood chemistry tests and chest radiographs obtained 6 months earlier were unremarkable. The plain radiographs of the lumbosacral spine revealed only mild degenerative changes.
