Conventional pedicle screw placement remains safe and accurate

May 25, 2015

Conventional methods for placing pedicle screws remain safe and accurate, especially within the lower lumbar and sacral spine, according to findings in a recently published study.

Researchers analyzed the placement of 770 pedicle screws with conventional methods at vertebral levels T7 to S1 in 114 patients. Accuracy was gauged by an axial thin-cut CT scan, and screws were classified correctly placed when they were completely surrounded by the pedicle cortex.
