article description
Lumbar cortical bone trajectory (CBT) screw constructs provide an alternative method of pedicle screw fixation in minimally invasive spine surgery. In this study, we explored the CBT technique in further anatomic detail. The primary aims were to evaluate variations in anatomy relevant to CBT screw placement and to determine optimal screw location, trajectory, and length using measures obtained from computed tomography (CT) scans.
