STUDY DESIGN Prospective study. OBJECTIVE To study the clinical efficacy of tapered rods in posterior cervicothoracic instrumentation. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The cervicothoracic spine is a junctional area with complex biomechanics. A variety of disorders affect this region, rendering it unstable. Numerous posterior constructs have been evaluated by in vitro biomechanical studies. There are no data available on the clinical efficacy of a screw-rod system utilizing tapered (dual-diameter… CONTINUE READING
