STUDY DESIGN This is a biomechanical study comparing the fatigue life of stainless steel (SS), titanium alloy (TI), and commercially pure titanium (CP) rods that were notched using techniques essential to spine surgery. OBJECTIVES To show the difference in fatigue life of the three rods and the effect on fatigue life of marks caused by techniques unavoidable in spine surgery. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Past studies have shown a decrease in the fatigue life of titanium when there is a defect… CONTINUE READING
