A micro-macro evaluation of the vertebral bony endplate permeability based on computational fluid dynamics Malandrino, Andrea; Hellmich, Christian; Redl, Heinz; Noailly, Jérôme; Lacroix, Damien Jerome (2011)
Open AccessThe intrinsic permeability is an important parameter that describes the resistance of a porous structure to fluid flo w. It has a key role in poroelastic finite element models of spinal segments, especially at ...
Anisotropic tissue elasticity in human lumbar vertebra, by means of a coupled ultrasound-micromechanics approach Malandrino, Andrea; Fritsch, Andreas; Lahayne, Olaf; Kropik, Karl; Redl, Heinz; Noailly, Jérôme; Lacroix, Damien Jerome; Hellmich, Christian (2012-07-01)
Restricted access - publisher's policyThe extremely fi ne structure of vertebral cortex challenges reliable determination of the tissue's anisotropic elasticity, which is important for the spine's load carrying patterns often causing pain in patients. As a ...
