Proximal junctional failure after surgical instrumentation in adult spinal deformity: biomechanical assessment of proximal instrumentation stiffness
Authors: Maeva Lopez Poncelas, Luigi La Barbera, Jeremy Rawlinson, Dennis Crandall & Carl-Eric Aubin
Study design: Assessment of different proximal instrumentation stiffness features to minimize the mechanical proximal junctional failure-related risks through computer-based biomechanical models.
Objective: To biomechanically assess variations of proximal instrumentation and loads acting on the spine and construct to minimize proximal junctional failure (PJF) risks.
