To determine the mid-term clinical and radiographic impact of pedicle screw fixation in patients with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS). A multicenter AIS database was retrospectively queried to identify 99 consecutive patients who underwent posterior spinal fusion using an all pedicle screw construct with a minimum of 5-year follow-up. Radiographic and(More)
STUDY DESIGN Prospective controlled study analyzing the donor site morbidity after reconstruction of full thickness iliac crest defects, using autologous rib grafts. OBJECTIVE To compare the pain and cosmetic outcomes of patients with iliac crest reconstruction with those who have had no reconstruction of the iliac crest. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA(More)
STUDY DESIGN Prospective, randomized, controlled animal study. OBJECTIVE To determine the efficacies of 2 ceramic composite bone graft extenders for promoting spinal fusion. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Although autogenous bone is still considered the "gold standard" graft material for fusion procedures, its use is associated with a number of limitations.(More)
STUDY DESIGN Biomechanical study using a finite element model of a normal and osteoporotic lumbar vertebrae comparing resistance with axial pullout and bending forces on polymethylmethacrylate-augmented and non-augmented pedicle screws. OBJECTIVE To compare the effect of cement augmentation of pedicle screw fixation in normal and osteoporotic bone with 2(More)
