Dynesys fixation for lumbar spine degeneration

  title={Dynesys fixation for lumbar spine degeneration},
  author={Matthias Bothmann and Erich Kast and Gerald Jens Boldt and Joachim Oberle},
  journal={Neurosurgical Review},
The dynamic fixation system Dynesys is utilized in the last 10 years for treatment of degenerative segmental disease of the lumbar spine. Dynesys is a semi-rigid fixation system that allows minimal lengthening and shortening between two segmental pedicle screws as opposed to a rigid metal bar. Thus, the system is regarded to maintain stability and near physiological motion patterns of the lumbar spine. The theoretical advantage of this system is to stabilize the treated segment and to prevent… CONTINUE READING
