STUDY DESIGN Relations between induced concentric tears in the sheep disc and the mechanics of the intervertebral joint and vertebral body bone were analyzed. OBJECTIVE To examine the effect of concentric disc tears on the mechanics of the spine. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Degeneration of the intervertebral disc results in changes to the mechanics and morphology of the spine, but the effect of concentric disc tears is unknown. METHODS In this study, 48 merino wethers were subjected to… CONTINUE READING
