Assessment of Pedicle Screw Placement Accuracy, Procedure Time, and Radiation Exposure Using a Miniature Robotic Guidance System
Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques, 06/29/2012
Lieberman IH et al. – The advantages associated with a robotic guidance system may make the surgeon more at ease about offering minimally invasive or percutaneous surgical options to patients and more comfortable about implementing pedicle–based fixation in general. This advanced technology may also allow inclusion of patients with complicated anatomic deformities, who are often excluded from pedicle screw–based surgery options.
