Numerous new posterior dynamic stabilization (PDS) devices have been developed for the treatment of disorders of the lumbar spine. In this report the authors provide a classification scheme for these devices and describe several clinical situations in which the instrumentation may be expected to play a role. By using this classification, the PDSs that are now available and those developed in the future can be uniformly categorized.
