Development of a per-operative procedure for concentrated bone marrow adjunction in postero-lateral lumbar fusion
European Spine Journal, 05/31/2012
Odri GA et al. – Despite the concentration obtained, there was no increase of bone growth by adding concentrated bone marrow. However, the number of stem cells in bone marrow was low and maybe a stronger concentration is needed to obtain a difference. The 3D reconstruction of the graft and the analysis of the graft’s volume using a novel software was efficient according to the similarity of the graft’s volume post–operatively in all patients.
