STUDY DESIGN An in vitro biomechanical investigation to quantify the endplates resistance to compressive loads, in the thoracic and lumbar spine. Comparisons were made to determine the regional strength of the endplate, the optimal size and geometry of interbody support, and the effects of endplate removal on structural strength. OBJECTIVES To(More)
STUDY DESIGN Anterior single- and dual-rod instrumented human and ovine thoracolumbar spines, with and without structural interbody support (SIS), were biomechanically tested and compared in flexion, lateral bending, and torsion. OBJECTIVE To determine significant differences in global stiffness of the constructs in an attempt to clarify specific(More)
