Sixteen fresh-frozen spines from cadavers (C4-T1) were randomized on the basis of dual energy xray absorptiometry analysis of bone mineral density. The specimens were subjected to physiologic loads (<or= 1.5 N-m) in a device that applied pure unconstrained, flexion and extension, lateral bending, and torsional moments. After a major injury, including a wide(More)
