This stock medical exhibit depicts a post-operative non-union with additional attempts at spinal fusion. The first image is an artist's interpretation of an actual pre-operative X-ray, which clearly shows the existing posterior lumbar fusion with broken screws at S1 bilaterally. The next four images show multiple steps of the subsequent surgery, including placement of the patient in a Wilson frame and the incision to expose the posterior lumbar spine, removal of the old hardware, revision of previous foraminotomies and laminectomies, harvesting of bone graft from the iliac crest and completion of the fusion. The final images are a post-operative X-ray which clearly shows the broken screw tips still embedded in the sacrum and a photograph of the removed pieces of screws.

Max Image Size: 2712 pixels wide by 1704 pixels high
