The biomechanics of indirect reduction of bone fragments retropulsed into the spinal canal in a burst fracture were investigated. In this model, tunnels were created in vertebrae L1 and C5 oriented anterior-to-posterior, allowing access to the posterior longitudinal ligament. A probe containing a load-sensing tip was passed through the tunnel. Both the location of the tip and the load acting on it by posterior deflection of the posterior longitudinal ligament were measured. In the lumbar spine… CONTINUE READING
