This study was done to determine the motion of the whole lumbar spine after internal fixation and the effect of kyphosis and lordosis on the remaining vertebral levels. Baseline motion analysis of sagittal, frontal, and transverse planes was done to determine the intact range of motion. Three fusion configurations were tested: neutral position (0 degrees… CONTINUE READING
