STUDY DESIGN A retrospective study of 101 patients who had undergone posterolateral lumbar fusion, to analyze the association between adjacent instability and the extent of laminectomy. OBJECTIVES To investigate the hypothesis that the integrity of the posterior complex (spinous process/supraspinous ligament/spinous process) between the fused segments and the neighboring motion segments significantly influences lumbar spine stability. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Spinal fusion with pedicle… CONTINUE READING
