Thoracolumbar spine fracture classifications are mainly based on a post-traumatic observation of fracture patterns, which is not sufficient to provide a full understanding of spinal fracture mechanisms. This study aimed to biomechanically analyze known fracture patterns and to study how they relate to fracture mechanisms. The instigation of each fracture(More)
STUDY DESIGN Measurements of cervical and thoracolumbar human spinal cord (SC) geometry based on in vivo magnetic resonance imaging and investigation of morphological "invariants." OBJECTIVE The current work aims at providing morphological features of the complete in vivo human normal SC and at investigating possible "invariant" parameters that may serve(More)
BACKGROUND Proximal junctional failure is a severe proximal junctional complication following adult spinal instrumentation and involving acute proximal junctional kyphotic deformity, mechanical failure at the upper instrumented vertebra or just above, and/or proximal junctional osseoligamentous disruption. Clinical studies have identified potential risk(More)
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to analyse the load on the shoulder muscles during reaching movements that are specific to wheelchair users in relation to the risk of impingement. METHOD Three activities of daily living were performed: putting a book on a shelf in front and at the side and putting a pack of water bottles on a table. The AnyBody shoulder(More)
BACKGROUND Sacroiliac joint (SIJ) is a known chronic pain-generator. The last resort of treatment is the arthrodesis. Different implants allow fixation of the joint, but to date there is no tool to analyze their influence on the SIJ biomechanics under physiological loads. The objective was to develop a computational model to biomechanically analyze(More)
