Synopsis

21 studies (including 7 randomized controlled trials [RCTs]) were included in this analysis to assess the effects of three different electrical stimulation techniques on fusion rates following spinal fusion surgery. The results of this meta-analysis displayed that the pooled fusion rates between direct current, inductive coupling and capacitive coupling electrical stimulation techniques were compa...
