Title:
Loading simulation of spinal vertebrae using the finite cell method 
Abstract:
Osteoporosis compromises bone strength, increasing the risk of vertebral fractures with severe health consequences. The development of an accurate and reliable patient-specific vertebral model would be of major clinical relevance, for both the prognosis of fractures and the investigation of implant systems. In the case of spinal fusion, the peri-implant bone strains are of major interest. High forces are transmitted at the bone-implant interface and screw loosening is the major cause of surgical...    »
