STUDY DESIGN Biomechanical study to investigate three-dimensional motion behavior of cadaveric spines in various surgical simulations. OBJECTIVES To determine the effect of cage geometry on the construct stability. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA There is a wide variety of cage/spacer designs available for lumbar interbody fusion surgery. These range from circular, tapered, and rectangular with and without curvature. However, the effectiveness of cages with different designs and materials to… CONTINUE READING
