Total ADC values of L1 intervertebral discs

Age changes in lumbar vertebrae and intervertebral discs
pressure changes during the Flexion-Distraction procedure for low back pain.
Not only ligaments, joint capsule, or parts of the intervertebral disc
can elongate and may lose some of the mechanical properties, but at the same time, the tissues become vulnerable to damage and thus likely to succumb due to fatigue.
The goal is for the stem cells to trigger cellular and molecular repair processes and ideally to form new intervertebral disc
cells in order to contribute to the regeneration of the tissue.

The anatomical basis for low back pain: Studies on the presence of sensory nerve endings in ligamentous, capsular and intervertebral disc
structures in the human lumbar spine.
For example, the stem cells transplanted into degenerated intervertebral discs
will face a harsh environment, which has very high pressure, low nutrition and low oxygen.
Anterior microdiscectomy was performed in C5-C6, removing bulky intervertebral disc
consisting of the nucleus pulposus and annulus fibrosus.
Immunohistochemical Detec- tion of Schwann cells in innervated and vascularized human intervertebral discs
Dorsal migration of a herniated intervertebral disc
is rare and may be difficult to definitively diagnose preoperatively.
1), not related to the anterior or posterior edge but rather to the central portions of the intervertebral discs
