Disc Distraction Shows Evidence of Regenerative Potential

Full Title: Disc Distraction Shows evidence of Regenerative Potential in Degenerated Intervertebral Discs
Author: Guehring, MD
Affiliation: University of Heidelberg
Publication: The Spine Journal

Objectives: Effects of temporary dynamic distraction on intervertebral discs were studied on the lumbar spine rabbit model to characterize the changes associated with disc distraction and to evaluate feasibility of temporary disc distraction to previously compressed discs in order to stimulate disc regeneration.
