Influence of Surgeon Technique on Screw Pullout Strength in Spinal Fusion Surgery

Kabuye, Ernest.


  • Abstract: Spinal fusion surgery relies on surgical implants such as pedicle screws for fusion of bone around the affected areas of the spine. Failure modes on these surgeries include high rates of the surgical implants loosening and in other cases hardware breakage. Existing studies for these failures demonstrate that the pullout strength of these pedicle screws is influenced by various factors ... read more
