Biomechanics of the C5-C6 spinal unit before and after placement of a disc prosthesis.

Abstract

The study consists of a biomechanical comparison between the intact C5-C6 spinal segment and the same segment implanted with the Bryan artificial disc prosthesis (Medtronic Ltd., Memphis, TN, USA), by the use of the finite element (FE) method. Our target is the prediction of the influence of prosthesis placement on the resulting mechanics of the C5-C6 spine… (More)
