Özet

Objective: The treatment of thoracolumbar burst fracture is a controversial issue. Although spinal fusion has been touchstone of spinal fixation, nonfusion technique have become raising its popularity recently. Some studies suggested that nonfusion had several advantages over fusion. The aim of this prospective study was to compare long segment posterior instrumentation with fusion versus long-segment posterior instrumentation without fusion.
