By Robert Linnehan

COPENHAGEN, Denmark — The number of cages used during an adult spinal deformity surgery is significantly associated with a patient’s clinical improvement and with the restoration of a balanced spine, according to data presented here.

“Patients treated with two or more cages demonstrated significantly greater sagittal and coronal correction, significantly better improvements in clinical outcomes and less neurological complications,” Vincent Fière, MD, said at the EuroSpine Annual Meeting.
