BACKGROUND There are no reports describing complications with posterior spinal fusion (PSF) with segmental spinal instrumentation (SSI) using pedicle screw fixation in patients with neuromuscular scoliosis. METHODS Fifty neuromuscular patients (18 cerebral palsy, 18 Duchenne muscular dystrophy, 8 spinal muscular atrophy and 6 others) were divided in two(More)
NAND flash memory has emerged as an attractive proposition for embedded storage applications due to its properties of robustness, low price, a high number of write-erase cycles, and large capacities. To make it suitable for real-time embedded applications, this paper presents the design of a log structured file system that utilizes data redundancy and(More)
The aim of this retrospective study was to explain a previously undescribed mechanism of 'pedicle migration or shift' with longitudinal growth of the spine owing to biological remodeling of plastic posterior fusion mass as well as pedicles which may explain at least a few cases of deformity recurrence after posterior fusion in scoliosis surgery. Progressive(More)
