One of the interesting findings in this study was that the disc bulge increased after end-plate fracture when the specimen was subjected to com­ pression loading. Ln a follow-up study, annular ra­ dial tears were simulated by producing a radial sur­ gical division from the center of the disc toward the posterolateral direction. The cut was extended all the way to the periphery, except for the outermost layer of 1 . 48 mm at the same load value. 01 mm. In ternal Deformations of the Disc Although we know precisely how the disc deforms (bulges) under a given load, as seen from the outside, the patterns of deformation within the disc are less well known.

In this set posture the specimen was suddenly loaded by a compressive force. The result was disc prolapse. similar to that seen clinically. in 26 of the 61 specimens tested. A close scrutiny of the specimens showed that there was a certain pattern to the specimens that prolapsed and the ones that did not. 5-S1), the 40-49-year age group. and disc degeneration with a grade of 2 [on a scale of 1-4) [Fig. 1-12). These sets of attrib­ utes seem to correlate well with the clinical picture of disc prolapse.
