The purpose of this canine cadaver study was to evaluate the range of flexion and extension of the canine lumbosacral spine before and after dorsal laminectomy and partial discectomy. Using a cantilever biomechanical system, a 3Nm bending moment was applied to flex and extend the lumbosacral segment. Motion in L7 (total range of motion [ROM] and neutral(More)

Few biomechanical studies have evaluated the effect of internal stabilization techniques after decompressive surgery on the stability of the canine lumbosacral junction. The purpose of this canine cadaver study is to evaluate the stability of the canine lumbosacral (LS) spine in flexion and extension following laminectomy and discectomy and then(More)
