Expansion screws

Expansion screws


Course for Neurosurgeons


A course for Italian Neurosurgeons on the use of expansion screws and dynamic rods in osteoporotic patients operated for degenerative problems (stenosis, listesis) or lombar trauma was held on June 6th and 7th, 2013, at our Department, organized by neurosurgeons of S. Filippo Neri Hospital.
The Neurosurgery Department of the San Filippo Neri Hospital in Rome, together with the San Giovanni Hospital in Rome, coordinates a program of courses to promote this new technology for lumbar spine fixation in Italy, and which our department has been using for some time.
The Neurosurgery department of San Filippo Neri is one of the centers of reference in Italy for this technology, which allows to treat safely lombar disorders in osteoporotic patients and reduce immediate and further complications.
