STUDY DESIGN Prospective consecutive series. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the outcomes of the treatment of acute thoracolumbar burst fractures by transpedicular hydroxyapatite grafting following indirect reduction and pedicle screw fixation. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA In the treatment of thoracolumbar burst fractures, the major problem after posterior correction and instrumentation is failure to support the anterior spinal column, leading to the loss of correction of kyphosis and instrumentation… CONTINUE READING
