Annulus Fibrosus Susceptible to Damage During Spinal Growth-Plate Fractures

Annulus Fibrosus Susceptible to Damage During Spinal Growth-Plate Fractures

Researchers examined the effects of endplate fractures  1 on the mechanical properties of the annulus fibrosis (AF) in porcine spinal segments and found that laminate adhesion strength was significantly compromised in the fractured spines. The findings suggest that microdamage may occur beyond the vertebra, into the interlamellar matrix of the AF—information that could be helpful in […]
