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...
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...
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 ...
TLIF is a popular lumbar interbody fusion technique to perform anterior interbody fusion. Pedicle screws providing initial stability have been developed to correct deformity, improve the r...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effectiveness between percutaneous and open pedicle screw fixation for treating thoracolumbar fractures with spinal injuries.
Minimally invasive fixation techniques for thoracolumbar fractures: comparison between percutaneous pedicle screw with intermediate screw (PPSIS) and percutaneous pedicle screw with kyphoplasty (PPSK).
To assess and compare the efficacy of two minimally invasive techniques (percutaneous pedicle screw with intermediate screw vs. percutaneous pedicle screw with kyphoplasty) for spinal fracture fixatio...
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...
The pig spine is widely used as a large animal model for preclinical research in human medicine to test new spinal implants and surgical procedures. Among them, pedicle screw is one of the most common...
This study was aimed to introduce a novel entry point for pedicle screw fixation in the thoracic spine and compare it with the traditional entry point. A novel entry point was found with the aim of im...
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)
