STUDY DESIGN After total spondylectomy, five types of spinal reconstruction techniques were compared biomechanically. OBJECTIVES To evaluate the stability provided by five reconstruction methods after total spondylectomy. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Total spondylectomy presents a worst-case scenario for spinal reconstruction. However, few investigators have biomechanically investigated spinal reconstruction stability after total spondylectomy. METHODS Eight human cadaveric spines (T11-L5… CONTINUE READING
