Abstract

Hazards and potential complications associated with pedicle screw insertions have been reported.
In contrast, complications due to implant removal are rarely described.
An unreported case of acute vertebral body compression fracture following pedicle screw removal in a young man occurred during an episode of forceful coughing.
Spinal implants need to be removed in cases of complications, pain or tissue irritation, and removal is mandatory when fixation involves L2 or the lower segments.
Complications associated with spinal implant removal are rare but possible, and patients must be informed of this potential risk.
