Plating of thoracic, thoracolumbar, and lumbar injuries with pedicle screw plates.

Abstract

This article describes a technique of plating thoracic, thoracolumbar, and lumbar injuries with pedicle screw plates. The shape of the plates is premolded to the spine curvature. The strength of the pedicles where the screws are implanted explains the good results of reduction and stabilization. This technique allows the surgeon either to reduce and fix a spinal fracture or to perform large approaches and extensive procedures when necessary.
