  • There have been no reports on the effects of the mixture ratio of local bone graft to artificial bone on the outcome of intervertebral bone fusion. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the mixture ratio of local bone removed from laminae and spinous processes to apatite- and wollastonite-containing glass ceramic (AWGC) granules affected fusion rates in spinal fusion. Posterolateral lumbar fusion at two levels without spinal instrumentation was performed in 35 patients who were… CONTINUE READING
