Vertebral stabilization using spinal fixation devices is a widely used technique. A three-dimensional geometric and mechanical finite element model has been used as a simulation tool for the evaluation of the mechanical behavior of spinal devices. The geometry of lumbar vertebrae was parameterized, which allows the construction of the geometric model for a… CONTINUE READING
