Spinal Biomechanics
Effect of Artificial Degeneration Induced by Needle Puncture on Time-Dependent Response of Intervertebral Disc.

Mohammad Nikkhoo; Sajjad Najafzadeh; Romina Kargar

Volume 9, Issue 4 , February 2015, , Pages 317-326

  Understanding the mechanism of artificial disc degeneration using animal models is useful to study the regenerative techniques in hope of finding potential therapeutic strategies. For any type of potential therapeutic techniques, first we need to have the degenerated model. Disc degeneration ...  Read More

Axisymmetric Poroelastic FE Modeling of Intervertebral Disc for Investigation of Lumbar Spine Biomechanics

Mohammad Nikkhoo; Mohammad Haghpanahi; J. L. Wang; Mohammad Parnianpour

Volume 5, Issue 1 , June 2011, , Pages 21-32

  Prediction of the relationship between different types of mechanical loading and the failure of the intervertebral disc is so important to identify the risk factors which are difficult to study in vivo and   in vitro. On the basis of finite element methods some of these issues may be overcome ...  Read More
