Posterior Percutaneous Pedicle Screw Fixation for Acute Thoracolumbar Vertebral Fractures

To validate the safety and effectiveness of minimally invasive posterior percutaneous pedicle screw fixation in acute thoracolumbar vertebral fractures with simple anterior spinal column i...

Surgical Treatment of the Thoracolumbar Spine Fractures.

The thoracolumbar segment fractures are the most frequent along the spine, and surgical treatment is indicated in unstable fractures. Surgical treatment has been performed through the post...

The aim of this study was to examine the short- to medium-term efficacy of percutaneous vertebral body reconstruction by vertebral body augmentation with Sr-HA paste plus short-segment ped...

Evaluation of the PediGuard™ for Pedicle Screw Insertion

The aim of the study is to determine the relative effectiveness of the PediGuardTM , a device manufactured by SpineVision, Inc, for placement of a pedicle screw pilot (drill) hole and for ...

Prospective Study on Ennovate® Pedicle Screw Fixation in Isthmic Spondylolisthesis Patients

The present study is planned to demonstrate the efficacy and safety of a new pedicle screw system for the specific indication of isthmic spondylolisthesis, as this condition concerns relat...

Efficacy and safety of minimal pedicle screw fixation for thoracolumbar fractures: a meta-analysis.

Minimal and open pedicle screw fixation procedures have been widely used in the treatment of thoracolumbar fractures. However, the efficacy and safety of these approaches remain unclear. This meta-ana...

Comparison of clinical results between novel percutaneous pedicle screw and traditional open pedicle screw fixation for thoracolumbar fractures without neurological deficit.

To compare the efficacy and safety of novel percutaneous minimally invasive pedicle screw fixation and traditional open surgery for thoracolumbar fractures without neurological deficit.

Surgeon's and patient's radiation exposure during percutaneous thoracolumbar pedicle screw fixation: A prospective multicenter study of 100 cases.

Percutaneous pedicle screw fixations (PPSF) are increasingly used in spine surgery, minimizing morbidity through less muscle breakdown but at the cost of intraoperative fluoroscopic guidance that gene...

Extent and location of fixation affects the biomechanical stability of short- or long-segment pedicle screw technique with screwing of fractured vertebra for the treatment of thoracolumbar burst fractures: An observational study using finite element analysis.

Intermediate screw fixation at the fracture level has been widely accepted to treat thoracolumbar burst fractures, but no study has shown the effect of the extent and location of fixation. The effect ...

Long-Term Influence of C1-C2 Pedicle Screw Fixation on Occipitoatlantal Angle and Subaxial Cervical Spine in the Pediatric Population.

The goal of this study was to evaluate the impact of C1-C2 pedicle screw fixation on the occipitoatlantal angle and subaxial cervical spine for a pediatric population, and the clinical efficacy and ad...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

BONE SCREWS to be used in the pedicle of the vertebral arch.

A type of juvenile osteochondrosis affecting the fibrocartilaginous disc (INTERVERTEBRAL DISK) in the thoracic or thoracolumbar region of the SPINE. It is characterized by a forward concave SPINAL CURVATURE or KYPHOSIS.

Percutaneous excision of a herniated or displaced intervertebral disk by posterolateral approach, always remaining outside the spinal canal. Percutaneous nucleotomy was first described by Hijikata in Japan in 1975. In 1985 Onik introduced automated percutaneous nucleotomy which consists in percutaneous aspiration of the nucleus pulposus. It is carried out under local anesthesia, thus reducing the surgical insult and requiring brief hospitalization, often performed on an outpatient basis. It appears to be a well-tolerated alternative to surgical diskectomy and chymopapain nucleolysis.

A family of percutaneous techniques that are used to manage CORONARY OCCLUSION, including standard balloon angioplasty (PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL CORONARY ANGIOPLASTY), the placement of intracoronary STENTS, and atheroablative technologies (e.g., ATHERECTOMY; ENDARTERECTOMY; THROMBECTOMY; PERCUTANEOUS TRANSLUMINAL LASER ANGIOPLASTY). PTCA was the dominant form of PCI, before the widespread use of stenting.

Treatment of some morbid condition by producing a reflex action, as in the household treatment of nosebleed by a piece of ice applied to the cervical spine. (Stedman, 27th ed)
