STUDY DESIGN Prevention of post-laminectomy membrane formation was evaluated in a canine model. Fat graft, Silastic sheeting and expanded polytetrafluoroethylene were compared with nonimplanted control sites. OBJECTIVES The development of an effective barrier to peridural scar invasion is of major importance in optimizing results after lumbar laminectomy… CONTINUE READING
