A greater lordosis angle is a risk factor for developing spondylolysis and ventral bulging of the affected vertebra, with researchers having proved a positive association between lumbar hyperlordosis angle and spondylolysis and isthmic spondylolisthesis.

Been and Kalichman gave a detailed description of the anatomy of lumbar lordosis stating that dorsal wedging of the vertebral bodies and discs increases the lordosis angle, whereas more ventral wedging of these structures reduces the lordosis angle …………….
