Evaluation of the stress distribution change at the adjacent facet joints after lumbar fusion surgery: a biomechanical study.

Abstract

Spinal fusion surgery has been widely applied in clinical treatment, and the spinal fusion rate has improved markedly. However, its postoperative complications, especially adjacent segment degeneration, have increasingly attracted the attention of spinal surgeons. The most common pathological condition at adjacent segments is hypertrophic degenerative… (More)
