Few studies have focused on failure patterns of the entire motion segment and on the function of the individual structures resulting from dynamic posterior loading. The current study investigated the mechanical properties of the motion segment under posterior shear loading and documented the resulting injuries. Twenty-six porcine motion segments were separated into three groups (whole segments, no posterior ligaments, and no posterior ligaments and facet joints). The specimens were tested under… CONTINUE READING
