BACKGROUND Accurate insertion of pedicle screws in scoliosis patients is a challenge for surgeons. Computer-assisted navigation techniques might help improve the accuracy of screw placement, thereby avoiding complications. Thus, the objective of this present work is to compare the accuracy and postoperative assessment of pedicle screw placement in scoliosis patients using a computer-assisted navigation technique and using a conventional free-hand method. METHODS A search of the PubMed… CONTINUE READING
