Tabasso G., Cinanni R., Gavino D., Baschiera R.
Pott's disease can cause: 1. deformity; 2. instability; 3. compression of the neurological structures, due to spinal canal invasion, deformity and instability. Indication for surgery: neurological structure compression; non correctable deformity; infection resistant to chemotherapy with instability and bone loss. The surgical technique is based on two times performed during the same surgery. 1st time (anterior): decompression, somatectomy, implant of the mesh filled in with antologous chips. 2nd time (posterior): implant of the pedicle polyaxial screws on the adjacent vertebrae, decompression, stabilization of the implant in compression.
