Biomechanical Analysis of 4 Types of Pedicle Screws for Scoliotic Spine Instrumentation
Wang X et al. – The bone–screw loads of different screws were significantly different. The descending order of bone–screw loads was monoaxial, uniaxial, polyaxial, and 6DOF screws. For patients with large and stiff spinal deformities or for patients with compromised bone quality, screws with more degrees of freedom offer better perspective to reduce bone–screw connection failure.
