PMID:  10766069     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
Eighty consecutive cases of suprafascial pedicle screw stabilization were reviewed. Intraoperative fluoroscopy aided the percutaneous screw placement after structural anterior interbody graft(s) were placed. During routine outpatient hardware removal, all intradiscal fusions were stressed via the Shanz screws under fluoroscopy. Anterior reconstruction via a mini open approach coupled with this minimally invasive posterior approach led to a 96% successful fusion rate.
