BACKGROUND For the treatment of low back pain, the following three scenarios of posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) were usually used, i.e., PLIF procedure with autogenous iliac bone (PAIB model), PLIF with cages made of PEEK (PCP model) or titanium (Ti) (PCT model) materiel. But the benefits or adverse effects among the three surgical scenarios were(More)
Constructing models based on computed tomog-raphy images for finite element analysis (FEA) is challenging under pathological conditions. In the present study, an innovative method was introduced that uses Siemens syngo ® 3D software for processing models and Mimics software for further modeling. Compared with the slice-by-slice traditional manual margin(More)
