Agency: Depuy Synthes Spine

(http://www.nsfcdmi.org/#!blank/ndq1x)

Amount of Support: $40,000.00

The goal of this study is to assess the accuracy and efficiency of screw placement compared to the free-hand technique in an assessment by CT scan of 6 cadavers amongst three surgeons of varying levels of experience. Torsional strength and axial pullout will also be compared between Transverse process and Freehand techniques.

"Disc Degeneration Below Arthrodesis in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis at a minimum 10 year follow-up."
