Biomechanics of the Spine Book Description :

Biomechanics of the Spine encompasses the basics of spine biomechanics, spinal tissues, spinal disorders and treatment methods. Organized into four parts, the first chapters explore the functional anatomy of the spine, with special emphasis on aspects which are biomechanically relevant and quite often neglected in clinical literature. The second part describes the mechanics of the individual spinal tissues, along with commonly used testing set-ups and the constitutive models used to represent them in mathematical studies. The third part covers in detail the current methods which are used in spine research: experimental testing, numerical simulation and in vivo studies (imaging and motion analysis). The last part covers the biomechanical aspects of spinal pathologies and their surgical treatment. This valuable reference is ideal for bioengineers who are involved in spine biomechanics, and spinal surgeons who are looking to broaden their biomechanical knowledge base. The contributors to this book are from the leading institutions in the world that are researching spine biomechanics. Includes broad coverage of spine disorders and surgery with a biomechanical focus Summarizes state-of-the-art and cutting-edge research in the field of spine biomechanics Discusses a variety of methods, including In vivo and In vitro testing, and finite element and musculoskeletal modeling

Biomechanics of Spine Stabilization Book Description :

Over the past two decades there have been major advances in the treatment of spinal disorders including anterior decompression of the neural structures as well as various forms of spinal stabilization by utilization of implants. These changes primarily reflect the development of better techniques of diagnosis and anesthesia, as well as new fusion procedures that are often supplemented with instrumentation. Biomechanics of Spine Stabilization bridges the gap that has existed between the physics of biomechanical research and the clinical arena. The book helps surgeons to plan treatments for the injured spine based on sound biomechanical principles - principles that will influence the surgeon's choice for the surgical approach, type of fusion and type of instrumentation. Biomechanics of Spine Stabilization begins with the essentials, proceeds gradually toward the development of an understanding of biomechanical principles, and, finally, provides a basis for clinical decision-making. These features make it a cover-to-cover must-read for anyone who is involved with the care of a patient with an unstable spine. Chocked full of illustrations, Biomechanics of Spine Stabilization includes: -Physical principles and kinematics -Segmental motion, stability and instability -Spine and neural element pathology -Surgical approaches and spinal fusion -Spinal instrumentation: General principles -Spinal instrumentation constructs: biomechanical attributes and clinical applications -Non-operative spinal stabilization -Special concepts and concerns -CD-ROM containing illustrations from book to create mental images of critical anatomical, biomechanical and clinical points

The Functional Anatomy and Biomechanics of the Spine of the Hero Shrew Scutisorex Somereni Book Description :

The Scutisorex vertebral morphology represents a functional innovation in the mammalian intervertebral joint. The vertebrae of Scutisorex interact at a bony interface (with no articular cartilage), supplementing the ligamentous and intervertebral disc connections. I suggest that the spine of this species is being heavily loaded in spinal flexion, causing ventral compression and axial torsion. At this time I cannot offer a testable, behavioral-ecological explanation for the Scutisorex spinal modification.

Biomechanics in Orthopedics Book Description :

A major part of orthopedics is the treatment of musculoskeletal diseases caused by structural disorders and mechanical breakdown of living tissue. Therefore, biomechanical consideration of static structures and dynamic mechanisms is compulsory for both diagnosis and treatment of orthopedic diseases. Previous biomechanical studies have enabled great advances in orthopedic implant technology, such as artificial joint replacement and instrumentation for spinal fusion. Consequently the importance of biomechanics is increasing more and more in daily clinical practice and development. In addition, biomaterial research into mechanical properties and tissue reactions of implant materials is certainly an important area of related study. This book is comprised of 22 papers presented at the International Seminar on Biomechanics in Orthopedics and the 17th Annual Meeting of the Japanese Society for Orthopedic Biomechanics, held in Nagoya in 1990. The volume contains full descriptions of both conventional and updated knowledge of the spine, ligaments, artificial joint replacement in the hip and knee, fracture treatment, and gait analysis, as well as biomaterials. I earnestly hope that this book will be of benefit to readers in daily clinical work and research. To close, I would like to thank profoundly the two coeditors, Prof. S.M. Perren and Mr. T. Hattori, and also a quiet supporter Mrs. J. Buchanan in Davos, for their cooperation in producing this book.

Impact of Spinal Rod Stiffness on Porcine Lumbar Biomechanics Finite Element Model Validation and Parametric Study Book Description :

A three-dimensional finite element model of the porcine lumbar spine (L1–L6) was used to assess the effect of spinal rod stiffness on lumbar biomechanics. The model was validated through a comparison with in vitro measurements performed on six porcine spine specimens. The validation metrics employed included intervertebral rotations and the nucleus pressure in the first instrumented intervertebral disc. The numerical results obtained suggest that rod stiffness values as low as 0.1 GPa are required to reduce the mobility gradient between the adjacent and instrumented segments and the nucleus pressures across the porcine lumbar spine significantly. Stiffness variations above this threshold value have no significant effect on spine biomechanics. For such low-stiffness rods, intervertebral rotations in the instrumented zone must be monitored closely in order to guarantee solid fusion. Looking ahead, the proposed model will serve to examine the transverse process hooks and variable stiffness rods in order to further smooth the transition between the adjacent and instrumented segments, while preserving the stability of the instrumented zone, which is needed for fusion.
