BACKGROUND Although autogenous iliac bone graft (AIBG) remains the gold standard for spine fusion, harvesting morbidity has prompted the search for alternatives especially for multi-segment fusion. This study aimed to evaluate the efficacy of using demineralized bone matrix (DBM) as a substitute of AIBG for long instrumented posterolateral fusion (≧(More)
The benefit of prebiopsy empirical antibiotics for patients with infectious spondylitis and the effect on clinical outcome are not well known. This study assessed the impact of prebiopsy empirical antibiotics in patients with infectious spondylitis. We retrospectively reviewed 41 adult in-patients with infectious spondylitis who received percutaneous(More)
BACKGROUND Clinical experience and animal studies have suggested that positron emission tomography (PET) using fluorine-18-labeled fluorodeoxyglucose ((18)F-FDG) may be promising for imaging of bone infections. In this study, we aimed to establish the accuracy of (18)F-FDG PET scanning for monitoring the response to poly(lactide-co-glycolide) (PLGA)(More)

Regenerative medicine is increasingly important in clinical practice. Ligamentum flava (LF) are typically removed during spine-related surgeries. LF may be a source of cells for spinal fusion that is conducted using tissue engineering techniques. In this investigation, LF cells of rabbits were isolated and then characterized by flow cytometry, morphological(More)
