Had a Global 360 Fusion @L4-5
Apl. 06. Fusion/Occification never occured between lumbar plates, in and around, or inside hollow center of graft device (12mm femur segment).I have found here at 'SPINE-HEALTH', and other spine-surgery websites, images showing what a 'solid' fusion is suppose to look like. What I'd like to discuss or see is exactly what a 'non-union' looks like. I have a non-union, clearly shown in all of 'my' x-rays, but what I'm after is medically acceptable pictoral evidence of a non-unions. So far I have not been successfull in finding pictures of non-unions. These illustrations would be any images no spine Dr. looking at them would have any problem declaring it a "NON-UNION". Can someone help me out?
I'll be happy to provide other contact info to facilitate this objective. or perhaps you can suggest a website, link, etc., where I can find such illustrations/images.
