Evaluation of the FrameLock reference-arc fixation device for image-guided surgery.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The FrameLock (FL) is a bone anchored, reference arc fixation device for image guided surgery. This study compares the stability of the FL to the FESS frame (FF), a friction fit device. METHODS The FL and FF were independently applied to a cadaver. Fifteen sequentially larger impulse forces were applied to each device (0.39-5.8 N*s). Following… (More)
