Abstract

These results could be a possible explanation for disadvantages of nucleotomy as a treatment. With the methodology presented here, we would be able to assess the performance of nucleus implants by determining the disc displacement map. This could also give us appropriate information of the annular deformation, which is needed for the development of motion preserving implants.
