Event Description

This report is being filed after the review of the following journal article: hayati a, osman y, muren m (2017), does the addition of a dynamic pedicle screw to a fusion segment prevent adjacent segment pathology in the lumbar spine? asian spine journal, volume 11 (5), pages 715-721, (turkey). The purpose of this study was to investigate whether the combined use of dynamic pedicle screws and polyaxial pedicle screws was effective on adjacent segment pathology (asp). Between 2007 and 2014, 101 patients who underwent lumbar segmental spinal fusion for degenerative spine diseases were included in the study. The patients comprised 53 females and 48 males, with a mean age of 53 years (range, 38¿78 years). The patients were analyzed in two groups poliaxial pedicle screw (pps) and poliaxial pedicle screw+dynamic pedicle screw (pps+dps) according to the technique used. In the pps group, 59 patients underwent posterolateral fusion after laminectomy and decompression with demineralized bone matrix (dbm) grafts and unknown depuy spine polyaxial pedicle screw rods plus unknown depuy spine interbody polyetheretherketone (peek) cages. A total of 127 segments were fused. In the pps+dps group, 42 patients also underwent lumbar spinal fusion; in addition, a competitor¿s dynamic pedicle screws with hinged screw heads were added to the adjacent segments at the end of the fused segment. In this group, 84 segments were fused and 53 segments were added to these segments as dynamic segments. The patients were followed up for an average of 79 months (range, 55¿90 months. Pps group: 8 patients had adjacent segment disease in caudal segments. 6 patients had adjacent segment disease in cranial segments. 1 patient had dural tear. 2 patients had radiculopathy. 1 patient had infection. 3 patients had pseudoarthrosis. 1 underwent surgical revision while the others were followed up without complications. 2 patients had screw loosening. Pp+dps group: 5 patients had adjacent segment disease in caudal segments. 3 patients had adjacent segment disease in cranial segments. 1 patient had dural tear. 1 patient had radiculopathy. 1 patient had pseudoarthrosis. 1 patient had screw loosening. This report is for the unknown depuy spine polyaxial pedicle screw rods and unknown depuy spine interbody polyetheretherketone (peek) cages.
