Conclusion
- Morphometry of Vertebral Pedicles: a Comprehensive Anatomical Study in the Lumbar Region

Analysis of both parts of the present study reflects similar trends regarding age, gender, and side variations. Although, the measured value of different parameters was slightly greater in the radiological study than the direct observations, which were measured through sliding calipers. Finally, to conclude, the direct gross study of the pedicles, although has some limitations, is still the more appropriate anthropometry tool to apply for adequate screw placement in spinal fusion. We recommend further studies in this direction to consider the impact of anatomical variation in the thoracolumbar and lumbosacral transition zones from which still some more clinical relevant conclusions may be drawn.
