Article Preview

The fixation of the vertebral column using transpedicular screws is a well-establish technique. Multi-axial pedicle screw designs allow deviation of the screw away from the perpendicular to the longitudinal rod, which facilitates application of a screw-rod system such as Cervical Attachment System (CAS) into the curved spine. This study was performed a static (compression bending and torsion) and dynamic (compression bending fatigue) empirical analysis of CAS component such as pedicle screw, rod and set screw based on the guideline of ASTM F136- 98 using Ultra-high Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) blocks as test vertebral bodies.
