Disease relevance of Pseudarthrosis


High impact information on Pseudarthrosis


Chemical compound and disease context of Pseudarthrosis

  • Four patients had pseudarthroses, two underwent revised procedures with titanium implants without signs of infection at more than 2 years' follow-up [11].
  • Fusion between the occipital and C2 segment was indicated in case of irreducible dens pseudoarthrosis [12].
  • SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: The mechanism by which nicotine increases the pseudarthrosis rate of spine fusion is unknown [13].
  • If nonunion occurs, the pseudarthrosis is generally between the posterior bone graft and the ring of C1 [14].
  • The presence of a synovial pseudarthrosis as suggested by technetium scintigraphy mandates open excision of the lining membrane at the time of electrode insertion [15].
