BACKGROUND CONTEXT The bilateral pedicle screw system (BPSS) is currently the "gold standard" fusion technique for spinal instability. A new stabilization system that provides the same level of(More)
BACKGROUND This investigation compares an interspinous fusion device with posterior pedicle screw system in a lateral lumbar interbody lumbar fusion. METHODS We biomechanically tested six cadaveric(More)
OBJECT In this paper the authors evaluate through in vitro biomechanical testing the performance of an interspinous fusion device as a stand-alone device, after lumbar decompression surgery, and as(More)
OBJECT Through in vitro biomechanical testing, the authors compared the performance of a vertically expandable lateral lumbar interbody cage (EC) under two different torque-controlled expansions (1.5(More)
