Objective: Redirecting of a laterally misplaced pedicle screw into the accurate position decreases the pull-out strength due to the reinsertion, lateral wall cortical perforation and widening of the pedicle hole. Thus, this biomechanical study was performed to quantitatively analyze the pullout strength of a redirected laterally misplaced pedicle screw into the accurate position.
