STUDY DESIGN An in vitro study was conducted to determine the biomechanical properties of a new simple, percutaneous, posterior fixation technique for the lumbar spine involving a new implant, the so-called Lumbar Facet Interference Screw. OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to compare the biomechanical properties of this new fixation device with translaminar and pedicle screw fixation. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Several techniques were described to perform a minimal invasive posterior… CONTINUE READING
