STUDY DESIGN Retrieval analysis of 2 Ti-6Al-4V alloy rods that fractured after spinal instrumentation surgery. OBJECTIVE To determine the mechanism that underlies fractures of Ti-6Al-4V alloy rods after spinal instrumentation surgery from a materials science viewpoint. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Rod failures after spinal instrumentation surgery are often reported and many case-based studies have been published. However, the details of the mechanism that underlies the fractures have not yet… CONTINUE READING
