STUDY DESIGN A combined in vitro and finite-element analysis was completed to assess the biomechanical effect of a new interspinous implant on the lumbar spine. OBJECTIVE The aim was to investigate the effect of an interspinous implant on the biomechanical behavior of a vertebral segment. METHODS An in vitro study on L3-L5 segments from fresh human cadavers was conducted combined with a 3-dimensional finite-element analysis. Intact, injured, and instrumented states of L4-L5 were compared… CONTINUE READING
