Finite element analysis of a ball-and-socket artificial disc design to suppress excessive loading on facet joints: A comparative study with ProDisc.

Choi, Jisoo   •   Shin, Dong-Ah   •   Kim, Sohee

published in: International journal for numerical methods in biomedical engineering


only the results for the "NewPro" disc were used for further analysis because the other results have already been published before in the study "Biomechanical effects of the geometry of ball-and-socket artificial disc on lumbar spine: A finite element study" by Choi et al.

endpoint

biomechanic measuring (undefined)
range of motion (undefined)


basics

diagnosis:
intact status

localization:
lumbar → motion segment → L3/L4
