Biomechanical analysis of multilevel fixation methods in the lumbar spine.


STUDY DESIGN The authors measured and compared the stiffness of cadaveric lumbar spines stabilized with several anterior interbody fusion devices. The information obtained provides a foundation for determining how methods of anterior lumbar fixation can maximize rigidity and promote development of bony fusion. OBJECTIVES To compare the utility of three… (More)
