Abstract
Lumbar interbody fusion is a lumbar surgical procedure that consists of replacing the intervertebral disk with a stiff prosthetic device (the fusion cage), promote bone growth in between the two vertebrae, and finally get them fused into one single rigid unit. In order to that the fusion cage is usually hollow in order to be able to accommodate new bone in its interior. Often this kind of surgery has been considered the only option when disk diseases are severe. The numerical studies described i...
