Imaging: Lumbosacral Fusion

Current imaging techniques are suboptimal in evaluating spinal interbody fusion.

Complications: Lumbosacral Fusion

The majority of complications associated with cylindrical anterior interbody fusion devices are a result of the operative approach, as opposed to specific device-related problems.

Clinical Studies: Lumbosacral Fusion
