Determination of detection depth of optical probe in pedicle screw measurement device

Abstract

BACKGROUND There is a high probability of accidental perforation of the vertebral pedicle wall in pedicle screw insertion surgery. A pedicle screw (PS) measurement device with an optical probe has been reported to send out a warning signal before the PS tip breaking the vertebral pedicle wall. METHODS In this study, we explored the detection depth of… (More)
