OBJECTIVE Bone morphogenetic protein (rhBMP-2) has demonstrated an increased rate of interbody fusion when placed in the intervertebral space. Owing to this advantage, rhBMP-2 is being implanted with increasing frequency in the lumbar spine. The purpose was to quantify and describe the presence of bone resorption within the vertebral body after transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion with placement of rhBMP-2 within the disc space. METHODS Twenty-six patients were selected from a clinical… CONTINUE READING
