RhBMP-2 versus iliac crest
bone graft for lumbar spine fusion: a randomized, controlled trial in patients over sixty years of age.
Ten cases patients reported no pain at rest or on palpation of the iliac crest
However, it seems inconceivable that the proportions of the iliac crest
and the abdominal muscles to that of the rest of the torso were not also somehow determined by Polykleitos' system of summetr.
A 2-year follow-up pilot study evaluating the safety and efficacy of OP-1 putty (rhBMP-7) as an adjunct to iliac crest
autograft in posterolateral lumbar fusions.
Dempster and his colleagues had reported similar results when they used histomorphometry to assess iliac crest
biopsies in TOP study patients: 48%, 24%, and 17% increases in cancellous bone volume, trabecular number, and trabecular thickness, for the PTH group versus the placebo group.
Autologous iliac crest
bone grafts are often used for persons undergoing anterior cervical fusion (ACF).
Variability of lead in the iliac crest
was observed to be minimal on the basis of sampling from contralateral sites 12 weeks apart in the four healthy subjects.
We dissected until we reached the dorsolumbar fascia, which was incised vertically down to the level of the iliac crest
1), external fixation (limb deformity or preoperative suspicion of infected nonunion), and a graft procedure, whether autogenous iliac crest
or iliac crest
aspirate with adjunct bone morphogenic protein (BMP) and an appropriate carrier.
Customized sizes and lengths to meet the demands of aspirating and accessing marrow from various sites such as the Iliac crest
or the lumbar vertebral body
The trial was the first ever to harvest an acute stroke patient's own stem cells from the iliac crest
of the leg, separate them and inject them back into the patient intravenously.
After identification of the transversus plane between internal oblique and trasversus abdominis muscles, the probe is moved postero-laterally to lie across the midaxillary line just superior to the iliac crest
(over the triangle of Petit).
