Adjacent level load transfer following vertebral augmentation in the cadaveric spine.

Abstract

STUDY DESIGN In vitro biomechanics. OBJECTIVE To determine if osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture (VCF) augmentation increases adjacent level load transfer. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Osteoporotic VCF subsequent to augmentation may result from disease progression or increased adjacent level load transfer, or both. METHODS There were 11 T3-T7… (More)
