Spinal Research Archives for Professionals

Patient Selection: Lumbosacral Fusion

Appropriate patient selection is critical to the clinical success of anterior lumbar interbody fusion.

Biomechanics: Lumbosacral Fusion

The greatest strength of the vertebral body is present in the subchondral bone of the cortical endplate.

Cervical Spine Approaches by Metrix

Cervical spinal approaches by Metrix. The technical possibilities in reaching the cervical spine by videoendoscopy through the anterior and posterior approach are shown.

Laparoscopic Anterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion: Technical Note

A case study from Emory University on the use of anterior lumbar interbody fusion.

Discussion: Isthmic Spondylolisthesis: Reduction vs. In-Situ Fusion?

A discussion of the SOCON Spondylolisthesis Reduction System.

Clinical Series of Spondylolisthesis Reductions

The outcomes of a clinical series of spondylolisthesis reductions utilizing the SOCON Spondylolisthesis Reduction System.

Evaluation of Neural Tension at the Time of Spondylolisthesis Reduction

An illustrated discussion of the evaluation of neural tension by means of cadaveric study.

Surgical Treatment of Isthmic Spondylolisthesis

Most surgeons utilize pedicular fixation where arthrodesis of adult isthmic spondylolisthesis is undertaken.

Isthmic Spondylolisthesis: Reduction vs. In-Situ Fusion?

Isthmic spondylolisthesis is an extremely common cause of lumbar symptomatology and remains one of the most common indications for lumbar reconstruction.

Lumbar Interbody Fusion Devices: A Comparative Study

Preliminary report on a prospective randomized concurrently on-going IDE study comparing the clinical outcomes of several metal cage fixation devices.

Outcomes in Allogenic Cages in ALIF and PLIF: Interbody Spacer

A posterior lumbar interbody (PLIF) spacer is a contoured, wedge-shaped cortical allograft that comes in five anterior heights.

Outcomes of Allogenic Cages in ALIF and PLIF: Biological Fusion Cages

The aim is to provide mechanical support to the segment being fused with biocompatible implant material and to allow the use of autogenous bone to promote spinal fusion.

Outcomes of Allogenic Cages in ALIF and PLIF: Anatomy and Biomechanics of Interbody Fusion

Interbody fusions provide the most logical solution to diseases of the spine's intervertebral discs.

Outcomes of Allogenic Cages in ALIF and PLIF: History

Spinal fusion can be accomplished by various techniques such as posterior and/or anterior procedures with and without internal fixation.

Outcomes of Allogenic Cages in Anterior and Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion

This article provides a review of two newly developed biological cages; the femoral ring allograft (FRA) space and the posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) spacer.
