Case report OBJECTIVE.: To report a case of direct pars osteosynthesis using computed topography (CT) navigation, image guided cortically-placed screws with curvilinear subspinous modular link.
SUMMARY OFBACKGROUND DATA:
Spondylolysis fracture is commonly encountered in athletes who subject their spines to repetitive hyperextension stress. Initial treatment is non-operative, consisting of rest, activity modification, physical therapy, and/or bracing. When non-operative treatment is deemed unsuccessful, surgery may be recommended.
This technique offers a novel solution for the treatment of pars fractures through a minimally-invasive, relative muscle-sparing approach, while not compromising healing potential and preserving the native facet joint.
LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: 4.
