The patient population consisted of 6 men and 4 women with a mean age of 56 years(43 to 65 years). All patients suffered chronic back pain with other neurological symptoms and signs. Neurological improvement was obtained in all cases postoperatively. Complication include pneumonia in 1 case, deep vein thrombosis in 1 case, flaccid neurogenic bladder in 1 case. Autogenous bone graft, obtained from iliac bone, between transverse process provided excellent bony fusion in 7 cases on radiologic evaluation between 9 months to 12 months after operation. TSRH universal instrumentation system have several advantages compared with other pedicle screw rod systems ; easy to handle, low morbidity, shorter operative time and easier relieval of root compression.
