STUDY DESIGN An animal study was performed to evaluate lumbar spinal fusion radiologically and mechanically. OBJECTIVES To assess the efficacy of interconnected porous hydroxyapatite in achieving posterolateral lumbar arthrodesis in sheep. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Posterolateral spinal arthrodesis with autologous bone graft is the gold standard procedure for lumbar fusion. The procedure for harvesting bone from the iliac crest increases morbidity. Interconnected porous hydroxyapatite has… CONTINUE READING
