15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Nanovis, a life sciences company committed to developing scientifically advanced regenerative platforms for implantable medical devices, today announced the availability of the FortiCore wedge shaped lordotic
cervical cage and a transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (TLIF) device with increased scaffolding.
33) Other applications of these systems include digital measurements of Cobb angle, pelvic radius angle, sacral obliquity, limb measurements, talar tilt, and kyphotic or lordotic
The plates are designed with lordotic
curvature to minimize intraoperative contouring, and all plates can be bent anatomically without compromising the ability of the screws to lock at any angle, according to the company.
Because in anatomic position the pelvis/sacrum is anteriorly tilted approximately 30 degrees, there is a natural lordotic
curve to the lumbar spine.
The VEO Direct Lateral System offers a comprehensive portfolio of interbody implants in both parallel and lordotic
angles to match each patient's anatomy.
Figure 1 illustrates this concept and shows that the bending moment on the passive tissues of the spine is high when a person adopts a fully flexed posture (approaching 100% lumbar flexion) at the start of a lift (Figure 1B) compared to someone who adopts a lordotic
posture (Figure 1A--approximately 40% flexion).
Dr Ozdemir said that in the sense of a deformity, kyphosis is the pathological curving of the spine, where parts of the spinal column lose some or all of their lordotic
profile, causing a bowing of the back, seen as a slouching posture.
The thoracic spine has a small canal-to-cord ratio as compared to a wider canal-to-caudaequina ratio in the lumbar spine which is lordotic
curves refer to the inward curve of the lumbar spine (just above the buttocks).
Second, a lumbar support that supports them into a lordotic
curve similar to that in standing will work.
It's important to maintain the proper posture with the normal lordotic
curve in the low back and a big chest throughout the execution of the lift.
Methodic assessment is done using the lordotic
lines of the spine (Fig 3).
