(Turkish Neurosurgical Soc, 2015-03)
AIM: Bilateral decompression via unilateral approach is one of the minimally invasive methods used for degenerative spinal stenosis. The aim of this retrospective study was to observe the clinical and radiological results ...
The Comparison of Pullout Strengths of Various Pedicle Screw Designs on Synthetic Foams and Ovine Vertebrae
(Turkish Neurosurgical Soc, 2015-07)
AIM: One of the most common problems with transpedicular screws is screw pullout. This study was conducted to measure the pullout strengths of newly designed transpedicular screws. MATERIAL and METHODS: The design of the ...
Cervical Spinolaminoplasty With Newly Designed Titanium Mini-Plates
(World Scientific Publ Co Pte Ltd, 2016-06)
One of the complication of cervical laminoplasty is the restenosis of the opened laminae. Weakness of the screws placed on laminae may cause restenosis. Here, we describe a new technic 'spinolaminoplasty (Turkish Open-door ...
