An analysis of the bulging of the annulus fibrosus as a function of the height of the intervertebral disc during compression is presented. The theory was compared with the results of experimental tests on rabbit lumbar discs. When viewed in profile the ventral bulge closely resembled an arc of a circle; at each stage of compression it appeared to extend from the cranial to the caudal extremities of the annulus fibrosus. The radius of curvature of the arc was measured as a function of disc… CONTINUE READING
