Pedicle screw "hubbing" in the immature thoracic spine: a biomechanical and micro-computed tomography evaluation.

Abstract

BACKGROUND A previous biomechanical study using adult thoracic vertebrae (both normal and osteoporotic bone density) demonstrated the deleterious effect of the pedicle screw hubbing technique. Pedicle screw "hubbing" involves seating and engaging the ventral aspect of the screw head onto the dorsal lamina cortex. This technique is postulated to provide a… (More)
