A New Interlaminar/Interspinous and Facet-Joint Stabilization System in Lumbar Degenerative Disk Disease: 2 Years of Results
26/02/2024 - Introduction: In lumbar degenerative disk diseases (DDDs), we include a wide range of lumbar pathologies. Lumbar spinal stenosis with or without spondylolisthesis is a...
Do Pedicle Screws That Terminate in the Costovertebral Joint Compromise Proximal Anchor Fixation in a Dual Growing Rod Construct?
19/02/2024 - Introduction: Growing rods (GRs) are used to treat early-onset scoliosis (EOS) recalcitrant to bracing and casting. Proximal anchor pullout, a known complication of GR...
Safety and efficacy of autologous bone marrow clot as a multifunctional bioscaffold for instrumental posterior lumbar fusion: a 1-year follow-up pilot study
19/02/2024 - Background: Bone marrow aspirate (BMA), when combined with graft substitutes, has long been introduced as a promising alternative to iliac crest bone graft in spinal...

22/01/2024 - Introduction: In lumbar degenerative disk diseases (DDDs), we include a wide range of lumbar pathologies. Lumbar spinal stenosis with or without spondylolisthesis is a...
Comparison of sacroiliac screw techniques for unstable sacroiliac joint disruptions: a finite element model analysis
22/01/2024 - Vertically unstable pelvic injuries associated with sacroiliac disruption are challenging. Although percutaneous iliosacral fixation using two screws at S1 vertebral body has been shown...
Assessment of two entry points for S2 alar-iliac screw in a Japanese cohort using three-dimensional computed tomography scan
05/12/2023 - CONCLUSIONS: Insertion of S2AIS from the midpoint between the S1 and S2 dorsal foramen compared with the entry at distal and lateral to S1 foramen enables insertion of longer screws with low...
Middle-term outcome and complications after primary total hip arthroplasty using a contemporary titanium tapered wedge cementless femoral stem
16/11/2023 - The purpose of this study is to evaluate the results and intraoperative or postoperative complications of primary total hip arthroplasty (THA) using a contemporary tapered wedge titanium...
Vertebral osteomyelitis after spine instrumentation surgery: risk factors and management
18/10/2023 - Background: Vertebral osteomyelitis after spine instrumentation surgery (pVOM) is a rare complication. Most cases of infection occur early after surgery that involve skin...
Peripheral nerve stimulation for the treatment of chronic knee pain
17/10/2023 - The average age of our population is increasing, resulting in a high incidence of chronic degenerative knee pathologies. Several treatment options, including surgical procedures are available to...
Biomechanical Evaluation of an Adaptive-Motion Pedicle Screw Fixation System: Experimental and Numerical Analysis
08/08/2023 - Rigid fixation is mostly used in thoracolumbar spine surgery, which restricts the thoracolumbar spine segments moving and is not conducive to postoperative rehabilitation. We developed an...
Robotic versus nonrobotic sacroiliac joint fusion
24/07/2023 - Objective: Robot-assisted pedicle screw placement in spinal fusion has been well studied. However, few studies have evaluated robot-assisted sacroiliac joint (SIJ) fusion....
First clinical results of a novel minimally-invasive fusion system for the sacroiliac joint
27/03/2023 - Background: Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) painful dysfunction is a common source of low back pain (LBP). Several surgical treatment options for SIJ fusion were described. A...
Computational model predicts risk of spinal screw loosening in patients
27/03/2023 - Purpose: Pedicle screw loosening is a frequent complication in lumbar spine fixation, most commonly among patients with poor bone quality. Determining patients at high...
Equipoise for Lateral Access Surgery
27/03/2023 - Objective: To investigate the use of lateral access surgery among surgeons from the Asia-Pacific region to determine equipoise for areas of contentious...
Rapidly destructive osteoarthritis of the spine: lessons learned from the first reported case
08/08/2022 - Background: Rapidly Destructive Osteoarthritis (RDOA) has been described for the hip and shoulder joints and is characterized by a quickly developing bone edema followed...
Biomechanical validation of additively manufactured artificial femoral bones
08/08/2022 - Replicating the mechanical behavior of human bones, especially cancellous bone tissue, is challenging. Typically, conventional bone models primarily consist of polyurethane foam surrounded by a...
The Sagittal Plane in Spinal Fusion for Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
25/07/2022 - Sagittal balance is widely recognized as the primary determinant of optimal outcomes in adult spinal deformity. In adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS), coronal correction risks being obtained at...
Arthroplasty for weight-bearing shoulders
