STUDY DESIGN Whole ovine caudal intervertebral discs (IVD) were cultured in sufficient and limited nutrition under simulated-physiologic loading for 7 and 21 days. OBJECTIVE To study the effect of limited nutrition on disc cells embedded in their native tissue in short- and midterm whole organ disc culture. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Nutrient-limited… CONTINUE READING
