Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Introduction: the use of interspinous instrumentation has been increasing in the last decade. However, in spite of the numerous papers seen in relevant scientific publications, there are very few references to an eventual disc height variation in the instrumented segment. Objective: to certify eventual changes in disk height after interspinous instrumentation (DIAM-Cousin-Biotech - Medtronic Sofamor Danek Inc
