Stabilization of Spondylolisthesis: The Hartshill System
Our ideas about internal fixation of the spine were dramatically changed by Luque, who popularised sublaminar wiring . There were, however, a number of problems with the original double rod Luque system, which we solved by joining the rods to form what we call the Hartshill rectangle . The rectangles are called “Hartshill” because I work at the Hartshill Orthopaedic Hospital.
