Modeling changes in intervertebral disc mechanics with degeneration.

Abstract

Mechanical response of the spine to various dynamic loading conditions can be analyzed by way of in vitro and in vivo studies. Ethical concerns, interpretation of conclusions reached in animal studies, and lack of detailed stress distributions in the disc components are the major disadvantages of relying solely on in vivo studies. Intraspecimen variability… (More)
