The mechanical properties of the canine lumbar disc and motion segment.

Abstract

A study was initiated to measure the mechanical properties of the canine lumbar spine disc and motion segment at two specific levels. Compressive stiffness was determined to be 717.8 N/mm at L2-3 and 949.0 N/mm at L5-6. Torsional stiffness was found to be 1.04 Nm/deg at L2-3 and 1.72 Nm/deg at L5-6. These data were then compared to human lumbar spine disc… (More)
