Recently anterior spinal device in the treatment of the unstable thoraco-lumbar spine has been used. We have experienced 11 patients of the unstable thoraco-lumbar spine, which were composed of 8 patients with burst fracture and 3 patients with tuberculous spondylitis. The 11 patients with neurological deficit were treated with an one stage anterior operation consisting of anterior decompression through vertebrectomy, realignment with Kanedae device. No patient showed neurologic deterioration after surgery. The anterior spinal instrumentation with Kaneda device afford enough stability to enable early ambulation with good alignment and solid fusion.
Key Words: Unstable thoraco-lumbar burst fracture; Tuberculous spondylitis; Kaneda device; Stability; Early ambulation
