STUDY DESIGN In vitro biomechanical evaluation of rod stress during physiologic loading of anterior scoliosis instrumentation. OBJECTIVES To determine effects of material properties and rod diameter on rod stresses in anterior scoliosis instrumentation. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Relationships between instrumentation dimensions, materials, and potential rod failure in anterior scoliosis instrumentation remain unclear. METHODS Eighteen immature bovine spines were randomized to 3 groups: 1… CONTINUE READING
