BACKGROUND Lumbosacral fusion is often needed in cases of pediatric neuromuscular spinal deformities. Despite the numerous fixation techniques described, the procedure remains challenging. Jackson has described a method of intrasacral fixation providing immediate 3-dimensional stability and promising clinical results. The purpose of this study was to report our experience with long spinal fusion using Jackson intrasacral fixation in pediatric patients. METHODS All patients with at least 5… CONTINUE READING
