BACKGROUND Questions remain as to the effect of pedicle screws on spinal canal development in young children. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of unilateral placement of dual screws across the neurocentral synchondrosis on spinal canal development as assessed with histological analysis and measurement of the canal dimensions in an(More)

However, optimal instrumentation configuration and strategies are not yet clearly defined. A biomechanical kinematic model using flexible mechanism was developed to study instrumentation strategies.(More)
STUDY DESIGN Manual digital measurements, in a porcine model of thoracoscopic anterior instrumentation, divided into two studies: 1) comparing the actual screw position within each vertebra with the perceived ideal screw position and correlation with the learning curve of the surgeon; and 2) a quantitative analysis of the vertebral bodies from T3 to T12 to(More)
