Misplacement pattern of pedicle screws in pediatric patients with spinal deformity: a computed tomography study.
A retrospective study. To assess the accuracy and safety of the placement of pedicle screws (PSs) on pediatric patients with congenital scoliosis younger than 10 years through postoperative computed tomography scanning. The accuracy of the placement of PSs in adolescent and adult population with var...
Surgical treatment of patients with spondylodiscitis and neurological deficits caused by spinal epidural abscess (SEA) is a predictor of cli...
I without neurological deficits (Frankel E) and group II with abnormal Frankel A-D. Surgical and nonsurgical therapy was retrospectively evaluated. Data were statistically analyzed using the 2-sided Fisher exact test. On admission, 102 patients were graded as Frankel E in group I. In group II, 15 we...
Research on safety of single-stage multisegmental thoracolumbar percutaneous balloon vertebroplasty.
This is a prospective study evaluating the safety of single-stage multisegmental thoracolumbar percutaneous balloon vertebroplasty (PVP). To discuss the safety of single-stage multisegmental thoracolumbar PVP. The PVP is a minimally invasive surgery. It is mainly used in the treatment of individuals...
Clinical application of computer-aided design-rapid prototyping in C1-C2 operation techniques for complex atlantoaxial instability.
This is a retrospective clinical study. To evaluate the clinical efficacy of computer-aided design-rapid prototyping (CAD-RP) techniques in surgical treatments for atlantoaxial instability (AAI). The complexity of the upper cervical anatomic structures makes the procedures for the treatment of AAI p...
An imaging study of the compressed area, bony fragment area, and the total fracture-involved area in thoracolumbar burst fractures.
We did not know the extent of difference between them. The aim of the study was to compare the differences seen in thoracolumbar burst fractures on lateral radiographs and CT sagittal reconstruction images and investigate their clinical relevance. Lateral radiographs and CT sagittal reconstruction i...
The influence of proximal anchors on the risk of proximal junctional fracture in the osteoporotic spine: biomechanical comparison between pe...
Biomechanical comparison of the risk of proximal junctional fracture (PJF) after multilevel spinal instrumentation using pedicle screws or transverse process hooks on the top of a pedicle screw construct. To compare the loads leading to PJF when using pedicle screws or transverse process hooks at th...
Surgical outcomes of scoliosis surgery in Marfan syndrome.
We judged the outcome as excellent/good if the patient had no major redo surgery and was very satisfied/satisfied. Overall, excellent/good outcome was noted in 78% of the patients. Blood loss averaged 659 mL in AISF and 1748 mL in PSF. The surgical time was 193 minutes in AISF and 229 minutes in PSF...
Double-curve synchronous derotation with convex correction: a new corrective technique for adolescent idiopathic scoliosis with double curve...
We describe a new technique of double-curve synchronous derotation with convex correction for double-major adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) and is highlighted through illustrative cases. Rotational deformity is a significant component of scoliosis, which causes a secondary rib hump, and adverse...
Optimizing the effectiveness of a mechanical suture-based anulus fibrosus repair construct in an acute failure laboratory simulation.
In vitro comparative, laboratory experiments. This study developed a laboratory apparatus that measured resistance to failure using pressures similar to intradiscal pressure of a lumbar spinal disk. Various combinations of an anular repair device were compared. Herniated material of the intervertebr...
Multiple-level noncontiguous spinal fractures: difference between the young and the elderly.
We retrospectively reviewed the hospital records of all patients with multiple-level noncontiguous spinal fractures (MLNSF) at university-affiliated hospitals between January 2001 and May 2011 (n=213). The variables assessed included age, sex, spinal fracture mechanism, anatomic distribution, neurol...
