In 16 patients, the branch of the pedicle extending to the serratus was ligated, and the pedicle was dissected to the subscapular system.
This superficial source supplies the superior or superomedial based pedicle. (12) A large musculocutaneous perforator (through the pectoralis major muscle) from either the fifth or sixth branch sustains the inferior or central based pedicle and is found just medial to the breast meridian about 2 to 4 cm above the inframammary fold.
After identifying the pedicle entry, the screw tracks were then prepared with a registered drill guide.
Images of the pedicle screw system and intervertebral fusion cage (DePuy Spine, Johnson & Johnson, New Jersey, USA) in the IGES format were imported into HyperMesh, and the finite-element model was constructed for ELIF and TLIF based on the requirements listed below.
The main consideration was control of the midline stalk at the skull base without encountering a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) leak from the basilar cistern or intracranial retraction of vascular feeders from the pedicle. The stalk, measuring approximately 1 cm laterally and 1.5 anteroposteriorly, was encased in a bony shell that extended through the midline floor of the sphenoid sinuses into the upper clivus.
Determining an intact posterior longitudinal ligament is difficult, but can be achieved in two ways: directly from imaging studies, in which the fracture fragment of the vertebra near the canal does not flip; or by fluoroscopy after reduction with pedicle screws and rods, when the posterior edge of the fractured vertebra is parallel to the adjacent vertebral body.
The different corneal bandaging techniques using contact lenses, collagen based biomaterials, cyano-acrylate tissue adhesives, corneal graft, third eye lid flap, conjunctival pedicle graft and temporary tarsorrhaphy for repair of full thickness defect in cornea has been described (Moore, 2003).
Palatal tissue has always been the first choice for the repair of the smaller palatal fistulas while the different pedicle flaps are generally used for repair of large fistulas.
The drawbacks of ultrasound include limitation by bowel gas, difficulty in demonstrating the twisted pedicle, the varied appearances of splenic infarction and inability to accurately assess status of adjacent viscera.
For SpineGuard and Neuro France Implants, which announced their co-development partnership in early 2015, this successful first surgery performed immediately after obtaining CE mark is a critical milestone as the company prepares to launch its G2S pedicle screw instrumentation that integrates the DSG technology.
