    Background: The lesion in spondylolysis is a nonunion that follows a fatigue fracture of pars interarticularis. Direct repair of the pars defect is a logical alternative to fusion as it helps to preserve the motion segment and prevents abnormal stresses at the adjacent levels. The purpose of the...

    The high rate of unplanned perforation, poor fixation, and nerve injury with freehand pedicle screw insertion has led to the use of image-guided navigation systems. Although these improve accuracy, they have several drawbacks that could be overcome by using image-based drilling guide templates....
