[Accuracy of fluoroscopic navigation of pedicle screws. CT-based evaluation of bone screw placement]

Abstract:

While the advantages of C-arm navigation in computer-assisted spine surgery are obvious, the accuracy of pedicle screw placement with virtual fluoroscopy still needs to be verified. The C-arm-based ION system (Medtronic Sofamor Danek) was used to navigate pedicle screw insertion in patients undergoing spinal surgery for various conditions. In a prospective study, a total of 160 screws were inserted in the first 30 consecutive patients since introduction of the system at our institution: 54 at...
