The present work represents the first study to report transversely isotropic material parameters for the human anterior longitudinal ligament (ALL) in the thoraco-lumbar spine. Force-deformation data from multi-axial testing was collected from 30 cadaveric spine test specimens using an anisotropic quarter punch test technique. The experimental data was fit to a commonly used anisotropic soft tissue material model using an FEA system identification technique. The material model correlated well… CONTINUE READING
