Biomechanical Comparison of Three Types of Artificial Discs in Total Disc Replacement of Lumbar Spine

Abstract

Introduction: Even though spinal fusion has been used as one of the common surgical techniques for degenerative lumbar pathologies, high stiffness in the fusion segment could generate clinical complications in the adjacent spinal segment such as disc degeneration and facet arthrosis [1]. To avoid these limitations of fusion, recently, various kinds of… (More)
