BACKGROUND CONTEXT Spinal instrumentation is accompanied by various problems, including screw malpositioning. One way of preventing this is the employment of intraoperative biplanar fluoroscopy. However, screw malpositioning despite the use of fluoroscopy has been reported, and exposure to radiation is another burden of this method. Therefore, the purpose of this article was to compare the results of instrumentation applications without using scopy versus the harmful effects of radiation… CONTINUE READING
