This in vitro study introduces a new method to determine quantitative parameters characterizing the mechanical behaviour of the costo-vertebral joint. These parameters are useful in building numerical models of the thoracic spine, taking into account the thoracic cage. Nine thoracic cages were isolated from fresh human cadavers. From each cage, three functional units were tested: T1–T2, T5–T6, T9–T10. Loads were applied according to the joint local coordinate system. Every functional unit was… CONTINUE READING
