STUDY DESIGN A human cadaveric biomechanical study of lumbar mobility before and after fusion and with or without supplemental instrumentation for 5 instrumentation configurations. OBJECTIVE To determine the biomechanical differences between anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) and direct lateral interbody fusion (DLIF) with and without supplementary(More)
Disc herniation risk is quadrupled following spaceflight. This study tested the hypothesis that swelling-induced disc height increases (comparable to those reported in spaceflight) stiffen the spine and elevate annular strain and nuclear pressure during forward bending. Eight human lumbar motion segments were secured to custom-designed testing jigs and(More)
