  • Single-approach vertebral osteosynthesis in the treatment of spinal osteolysis by spondylodiscitis. [Journal Article]
  • NFNeurosurg Focus 2019 Jan 01; 46(1):E9
  • Rustemi O, Raneri F, … Cervellini P
  • CONCLUSIONS: This study has the limitations of a retrospective review with a limited number of patients. Instrumentation does not appear to hamper healing from infection. Moreover, spinal stabilization, which is assisted by the infectious process even in the absence of bone graft, allows early mobilization. Instrumented osteosynthesis should be preferred for spondylodiscitis with osteolysis and spinal instability because it allows early mobilization and rehabilitation whenever necessary. It prevents spinal deformity and does not hamper healing of infections.
