Polymethylmethacrylate augmentation of cannulated pedicle screws for fixation in osteoporotic spines and comparison of its clinical results ...
This is a retrospective study carried out to evaluate the clinical results of patients with osteoporosis and various spinal diseases treated surgically with polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)-augmented cannulated pedicle screws, and to compare this method with the needle injection technique in terms of t...
Compressive loading of the spine may affect the spinal canal encroachment of burst fractures.
Spinal canal encroachment of burst fractures under different compressive loading. To assess whether the application of different compressive loads affect the spinal canal encroachment (SCE) of thoracolumbar burst fractures and to relate any significant encroachment differences to the fracture morpho...
Pulsed Electromagnetic Field (PEMF) Plus BMP-2 Upregulates Intervertebral Disc-Cell Matrix Synthesis More Than Either BMP-2 Alone or PEMF Al...
We decided to carry out an experiment whereby we combined PEMF with BMP-2. Our thoughts were that BMP-2 plus PEMF could be better than either alone. The PEMF signal used was similar to that used in the clinical treatment of fracture nonunions or delayed fracture healing. Human disc cells were treate...
Intervertebral foramen variation following dynamic L4-L5 interspinal device implantation: foramen size after interspinal device implantation...
We do not have sufficient understanding about their impact on the foraminal opening. Six fresh L2-S1 columns were prepared with preservation of the capsuloligamentary and discal structures. The L4-L5 foramen was particularly carefully prepared. A 2-dimensional photographic analysis measured the leng...
Three solutions to a single problem: alternative casting frames for treating infantile idiopathic scoliosis.
This is a technique article discussing 3 alternative frames for casting children with infantile scoliosis. To provide surgeons with alternatives to expensive specialized casting tables to allow local treatment of these children utilizing readily available materials present at most institutions. Cast...
Novel motion preservation device for atlantoaxial instability.
: An in vitro cadaveric biomechanical study. : To evaluate the anteroposterior (A-P) stability and the flexibility of our novel motion preservation device (MPD) using cadaveric cervical spines. : The MPD intended to restrict the A-P instability of the C1-C2 complex and to preserve the axial rotation...
Comments on the Paper: Reliability Analysis of a Smartphone-aided Measurement Method for the Cobb Angle of Scoliosis by Jun Qiao, et al.
Lumbar Facet Resurfacing: First Experience With the FENIX™ Implant.
: Facet joint osteoarthritis is responsible for up to 30% of chronic low back pain. Arthroplasty is a surgical treatment option that aims to relieve pain while maintaining or restoring motion. METHODS:: Eight consecutive patients with proven single segmental bilateral lumbar facet-joint osteoarthriti...
Minimally Invasive Transpsoas L2 Corpectomy and Percutaneous Pedicle Screw Fixation for Osteoporotic Burst Fracture in the Elderly
We report a case of an L2 osteoporotic burst fracture in an elderly patient with significant co-morbidities treated with a minimally invasive tubular direct lateral trans-psoas approach for L2 vertebrectomy and anterior cage placement. The construct was supplemented by a percutaneous pedicle screw c...
Asymmetric Facet Joint Osteoarthritis and its Relationships to Facet Orientation, Facet Tropism and Ligamentum Flavum Thickening.
: Asymmetric FJOA is associated with facet orientation and tropism, but not with spinal level. There is a close relationship between severity of FJOA and LF thickness....
