OBJECTIVE To study the biomechanical behavior of lumbar interbody instrumentation techniques using titanium cages as either transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) or anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF), with and without posterior pedicle fixation. METHODS Six fresh-frozen lumbar spines (L1-L5) were loaded with pure moments of +/-7.5 Nm in(More)
The clinical case of a 34-year-old patient is presented who was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma in the right pedicle of the L5 vertebral body on the basis of persisting dorsolumbar pain. Staging examinations including CT scan of the thorax and abdomen as well as bone scintigraphy were inconspicuous. The patient underwent 6 cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy(More)
BACKGROUND Fusion of lumbar spine segments is a well-established therapy for many pathologies. The procedure changes the biomechanics of the spine. Initial clinical benefits may be outweighed by ensuing damage to the adjacent segments. Various surgical devices and techniques have been developed to prevent this deterioration. "Topping off" systems combine(More)
