Novel radiopaque ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene sublaminar wires in a growth-guidance system for the treatment of early-onset scoliosis: feasibility in a large animal study.

Abstract

STUDY DESIGN In vivo analysis in an ovine model. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the feasibility of radiopaque ultrahigh molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) sublaminar wires in a growth-guidance spinal system by assessing stability, biocompatibility, and growth potential. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Several growth-guidance systems have been developed for the… (More)
