Sixty patients undergoing 1-level posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) were randomized to receive a CaO-SiO2-P2O5-B2O3 glass ceramic (BGS-7) intervertebral spacer or a titanium cage filled with autologous local bone. This study used patients from a previous study. The primary outcome of interest included the bone fusion rate by 3D computed tomography (CT). Additional outcomes of interest inclu...
