Abstract

 Evolution of Adverse Events on Ct-Scan after Use of Rhbmp-2 in Plif Surgery

In this prospective nonrandomized trial, our objective was to assess the clinical and radiological effects of using rhBMP-2 and absorbable collagen carrier (inductOs™) in conjunction with PEEK PLIF cages (Telamon) for one-level instrumented fusions, after 2 years. Additional CT-scans were taken at 3 years.
