Patients with severe lower back pain due to narrowed passages for spinal nerves obtained sustained significant relief with a new, minimally invasive procedure, a new study shows.
Patients who underwent Posterior Cervical Fusion (PCF) and decompression obtained significant clinical improvement with high fusion rates and low revision and complication rates, and patient reported outcomes matched and, in some cases, exceeded the clinical results, according to a new study.
