Now, a multidisciplinary research team from the University of Pennsylvania's Perelman School of Medicine, School of Engineering and Applied Science, and School of Veterinary Medicine is aiming to solve this issue by developing bioengineered intervertebral discs
made out of an individual's own stem cells.
Finally, the thoracic intervertebral disc
herniation may present a significant diagnostic challenge and may remain a misdiagnosis, if it is not considered within the range of preliminary diagnoses in cases with dorsalgia.
Adjacent injured vertebrae with intervening intervertebral disc
were obtained and fixed in 4% buffered formalin.

disease," Advanced Drug Delivery Reviews, vol.
The synthesis and decomposition of normal intervertebral disc
matrix maintain a balance, and its decomposition is mainly through the generation and activation of catabolic enzymes, including MMPs and a disintegrin and metalloproteinase .
The patient was then placed in reverse jack-knife position for opening of the right lateral intervertebral disc
As shown in [Table 1], we found that intervertebral disc
ADC values among different age groups (Groups A, B, C, and D) decreased with age.
Heights of the lumbar intervertebral discs
related to age in Turkish individuals.
Low-impact aerobic exercise is especially beneficial for maintaining the integrity of intervertebral discs
. If you haven't exercised in a while, start with just a few minutes of easy walking or swimming.
Vascularization and morphological changes of the endplate after axial compression and distraction of the intervertebral disc
The largest avascular structure in the human body, intervertebral disc
, is particularly prone to fatigue, with a very limited capacity for repair or remodeling (Adams et al., 1995).
