BACKGROUND Posterior fixation alone may not be adequate to achieve and maintain burst fracture reduction. Adding screws in the fractured body may improve construct stiffness. This in vitro study evaluates the biomechanical effect of inserting pedicle screws in the fractured body compared with conventional short- and long-segment posterior fixation. (More)
STUDY DESIGN An in vitro biomechanical study. PURPOSE To evaluate the biomechanics of a novel posterior integrated clamp (IC) that extends on an already implanted construct in comparison to single long continuous bilateral pedicle screw (BPS) and rod stabilization system. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE Revision surgery in the thoracolumbar spine often(More)
