An in vitro organ culturing system for intervertebral disc explants with vertebral endplates: a feasibility study with ovine caudal discs



An in vitro organ culturing system for intervertebral disc explants with vertebral endplates: a feasibility study with ovine caudal discs



Spine 31(23): 2665-2673



Study Design. Whole ovine caudal intervertebral discs with vertebral endplates were cultured under uniaxial diurnal loading for 7 days.Objectives. To establish and characterize an organ culture system for intervertebral discs, in which disc cells may be "maintained" in their native three-dimensional environment under load.Summary of Background Data.
