  • Comparison of intradiscal pressures and spinal fixator loads for different body positions and exercises. (biomedsearch.com)
  • 1994) the loads on an internal spinal fixation device (an implant for stabilising unstable spines) were determined in 10 patients. (biomedsearch.com)
  • Differences between trends for intradiscal pressure and for flexion bending moments in the fixators were found when the load was predominantly carried by the anterior spinal column, as during flexion of the upper part of the body or when lifting and carrying weights. (biomedsearch.com)
  • operation
  • During an operation carried out on the next day, the fixator was lengthened proximally to incorporate the proximal fragment (Fig. 2). (nih.gov)
