Abstract

Test procedures and subsequent interpretation of results for spinal fixation instrumentation are quite varied and often reported in a confusing manner. In an effort to alleviate this situation, a standard group of systematic testing procedures have been developed which incorporate both mechanical (geometric) spinal simulation and a reliable animal (bovine) model of the normal human spine. The Harrington, Moe, Cotrel-Dubousset and Luque spinal instrumentation systems have been tested using these standard configurations under axial compression coupled with anterior bending, torsion, and lateral bending. The test procedures and the microcomputer-based data acquisition system are described.
