Variants shown by the orientation of the cover-plate and of the superior articular facets of the sacrum have a considerable influence on the lumbosacral biostatistics. This can be illustrated by parallelograms of forces. If we assume a certain force stressing upon the sacrum, we are able to calculate the distribution of stress upon the cover-plate and the(More)
The orientation of the superior articular processes with regard to the upper end-plate of the sacrum does not depend on the inclination of the sacrum. This assertion can be made by interpreting certain angles already described in literature and may be confirmed by a research following strict biomechanic principles: The orientation of the articular processes(More)
