BACKGROUND Burst fractures represent a significant proportion of fractures of the thoracolumbar junction. The recent advent of minimally invasive techniques has revolutionized the surgical treatment of this type of fracture. However mechanical behaviour and primary stability offered by these solutions have to be proved from experimental validation tests on(More)
Biomechanical studies that involve normal, injured or stabilized human spines are sometimes difficult to perform on large samples due to limited access to cadaveric human spines and biological variability. Finite element models alleviate these limitations due to the possibility of reusing the same model, whereas cadaveric spines can be damaged during(More)
Kyphoplasty has been shown as a well-established technique for spinal injuries. This technique allows a vertebral bone augmentation with a reduction of morbidity and does not involve any adjacent segment immobilisation. There is a lack of biomechanical information resulting in major gaps of knowledge such as: the evaluation of the "quality" of stabilisation(More)
