STUDY DESIGN A paired comparison was done of the bending flexibility and compression strength of tricortical bone graft and titanium fiber mesh implants in a human cadaver model of posterior lumbar interbody fusion. OBJECTIVES To test the hypothesis that a titanium fiber mesh implant and a tricortical bone graft provide adequate and equal mechanical strength and stability in posterior lumbar interbody fusion constructs. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Although studies of posterior lumbar… CONTINUE READING
