In “Posterior spinal instrumentation and decompression with or without cross-link?,” the researchers evaluated the impact of cross-link augmentation on single-level lumbar instrumentation stiffness after gradual decompression procedures.
The findings are published in the December 2021 issue of the North American Spine Society Journal.
“Posterior lumbar instrumentation requires...(More)
