Effects of enzymatic digestion on compressive properties of rat intervertebral discs.

Abstract

Enzymatic treatments were applied to rat motion segments to establish structure-function relationships and determine mechanical parameters most sensitive to simulated remodeling and degeneration. Rat caudal and lumbar disc biomechanical behaviors were evaluated to improve knowledge of their similarities and differences due to their frequent use during in… (More)
