Abstract

Sublaminar wiring of Harrington distraction rods enhances stability and resistance to pullout and is an effective means of managing unstable thoracolumbar spine fractures. The incidence of distraction rod-related failure and the duration of postoperative immobilization are reduced. Early return to full activity and successful rehabilitation are facilitated by efficient stabilization of the spinal column.
