A new study published in the Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine examines percutaneous K-wireless pedicle screw fixation.
The researchers examined 100 screws placed in 28 patients using a K-wireless percutaneous screw system and evaluated 25 patients with a postoperative dedicated spinal CT scan.
Here are five things to know from the study:
1. The screw placement outcomes were as follows:
• Grade A: 87
• Grade B: 3
• Grade D: 1
2. The overall screw placement accuracy rate was 96.7 percent.
