Recent Advances of Biomechanical Studies on Cervical Fusion and Non-fusion Surgery



Recent Advances of Biomechanical Studies on Cervical Fusion and Non-fusion Surgery



Sheng Wu Yi Xue Gong Cheng Xue Za Zhi 33(1): 171-176



This article reviews the progress of biomechanical studies on anterior cervical fusion and non-fusion surgery in recent years. The similarities and differences between animal and human cervical spines as well as the major three biomechanical test methods are introduced. Major progresses of biomechanical evaluation in anterior cervical fusion and non-fusion devices, hybrid surgery, coupled motion and biomechanical parameters, such as the instant center of rotation, are classified and summarized. Future development of loading method, multilevel hybrid surgery and coupling character are also discussed.
