Microstructural analysis of three-dimensional canal network in the rabbit lumbar vertebral endplate.

Abstract

Insufficient nutrient supply through vertebral canal structures to the intervertebral disc (IVD) has been considered as an important contributor for disc degeneration. Despite previous canal structure characterization studies using histology, scanning electron microscopy, and angiography, among others, their three-dimensional (3D) topology inside the… (More)
