STUDY DESIGN A porcine model of thoracic pedicle screw insertion was used to determine the effect of screw position on triggered electromyographic response. OBJECTIVE To develop a model of intraoperative detection of misplaced thoracic pedicle screws. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Triggered electromyographic stimulation has been a valuable aid in determining appropriate placement of lumbar pedicle screws. The use of pedicle screws is increasing in the thoracic spine. Misplaced thoracic pedicle… CONTINUE READING
