STUDY DESIGN This study biomechanically evaluated three fixation devices for stability with posterior two- and three-column injuries. OBJECTIVES To find an effective means of posteriorly stabilizing injuries at the cervicothoracic junction. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The cervicothoracic spine is complex anatomically and has been a difficult challenge in approach and stabilization of traumatic and degenerative disorders. METHODS Twenty-one human cadaveric spines (C3-T3) were loaded in… CONTINUE READING
