Using a rongeur, the authors remove the spinous processes of all levels to be included in the laminectomy. Traction from the tape can cause a stretch injury to the brachial plexus; therefore, only gentle traction is applied. There were no cases of spinal cord or vertebral artery injury, infections or death, or adjacent segment disease at month follow-up.

A high-speed burr is used to make a unicortical defect in each lamina on the hinge side. Awl Insertion 2 5. The spine is made up of a series of bones called vertebrae ; between each vertebra are strong connective tissues.

Recommended directions for use of this system surgical operative techniques are available at no charge upon request. The system includes centerpicee, various More information.

Cervical Laminoplasty and Posterior Cervical Fusion Devices for Cervical Stenosis

Gently taping the shoulders can also improve access to the posterior neck. This helps to stabilize the plate s position while completing the fixation, as well as reducing any sheer loads on the lateral fixation screws.

The ideal candidate for this procedure is young with minimal degenerative changes and normal lordotic alignment. The skin incision can usually be localized by palpating the spinous processes of C2 and C7. To resurrect a situation in which a hinge is either too floppy or displaced, one could opt to use the hinge plate.

In the event that it is judged mertronic be necessary, its application begins before opening the laminoplasty. However, the strength of this repair to the facet joint capsules has been questioned. This fact is especially true in spinal surgery crnterpiece many extenuating circumstances may compromise the results.


Several methods of lateral mass screw placement have been proposed. Posterior Dynamic Stabilization System.

It usually occurs in the lower back lumbar spine or the neck cervical spine It occurs More information. Page 6 Product Information Fractures of the Thoracic and Lumbar Spine. Add new comment Your name. Any case not described in the Indications. Early active range of motion may also be encouraged, provided the position of the laminae is secured during surgery. This stabilization eliminates movement and centerpiede relieves your pain and other symptoms.

The allograft is then attached to the graft plate and centerpiee by inserting a 2. To use this website, you must agree to our Privacy Policyincluding cookie policy. Most plates are made of titanium or a titanium alloy.

Features and Benefits 4. Figure 11a Figure 10 Figure Always talk with your doctor about diagnosis and treatment information. This will permit one to assess the stiffness of the hinge as it is prepared for each lamina. Examples of suture anchors include Mitek GII suture anchors and the medtrnic 2-mm suture anchors, 3.


Mini-plates Historically, with the Hirabayashi-type open-door laminoplasty technique, the gap on the open-door side was kept open with suture passing around or through the spinous process and facet capsule on the closed side see image below. The authors tend to place lateral mass screws in a fashion similar medtrnic that described by Anderson et al, with a slightly steeper angle as described by Cheng.

Complications Mini-plates Laminoplasty plates, as with any mechanically inserted component, have the attendant risks of early or late loosening, implant migration, and breakage.

The lateral mass screws are then placed. The ligamentum flavum is mestronic down at the cephalad and caudad ends of the decompression using a Kerrison rongeur, allowing for removal of the intervening laminae en masse. Designed For Maximum Adaptability.


Bone fracture or stress shielding at, above, or below the level of surgery. Fractures of the forearm can occur near the wrist at More information. Health Care Authorities recommend sterilization according to these parameters so as to minimize the potential risk of transmission of Creutzfeldt- Jakob disease, especially of surgical instruments that could come into contact with the central nervous system.

Page 4 Surgical Technique This system is intended to be used to provide protection of the spinal canal.

Fractures of the Thoracic medtrnoic Lumbar Spine The most common fractures of the spine occur in the thoracic midback. Metallic surgical implants are subject to repeated stresses in use, and their center;iece is limited by the need to adapt the design to the size and shape of human bones.

Placing all screws in line as much as possible aids placement of the rods. A subfascial drain is placed in all cases. Update my browser now.

The C1 vertebra is termed the atlas, while the C2 vertebra is the axis; these two vertebrae have distinct anatomical features that differentiate them mddtronic the rest of the spine.

The completion of the bone separation on the open side can be performed with a 1. The centwrpiece of the extensor muscles is only detached from the lower laminar margin of C2 to afford access to the C inter-laminar space. If a loaner, earn-out or consignment system is used, all sets should be carefully checked for completeness and all components should be carefully checked for lack of damage prior to use.
