The three-dimensional stability provided by eight spinal fixation devices has been studied in an in vitro biomechanical model using seven-vertebrae (T9-L3) fresh cadaveric thoracolumbar specimens. An injury was created at T12-L1 by complete transection of the posterior elements and posterior half of the intervertebral disc, leaving the anterior half of the intervertebral disc and anterior longitudinal ligament intact. The three-dimensional rotational and translational motions, measures of… CONTINUE READING
