STUDY DESIGN Augmentation of pedicle screws with bioactive glass (BG) was performed in osteoporotic ovine spine in vivo. Biomechanical tests, micro-computed tomography (CT) analysis, and histologic observation were performed. OBJECTIVE To investigate the biomechanical stability of pedicle screws augmented by BG in osteoporotic sheep and observe the bone-screw interface histologically. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA There is little information on the long-term biomechanical performance and screw… CONTINUE READING
