    Interrupted nerve-fibres, regenerating down endoneurial pathways into partially denervated muscles, fuse with end-plates which have been reconstituted by the sprouting of surviving nerve-fibres. Doubly-innervated end-plates, and ultraterminally-linked pairs of end-plates are formed, and these...

    The vertebral endplates are critical for maintaining disc function yet like other components of the disc are vulnerable to degeneration. This paper provides an overview of the development and normal function of the endplates as well as an impression of what happens when they undergo progressive...

    The vertebral end-plate is critical for maintaining the health of the intervertebral disc. This paper reviews the literature that relates to end-plate structure and development and describes how disc integrity is affected by changes associated with pathology and aging. A range of studies,...

    Examination of miniature endplate potential (MEPP) distributions indicated that the average quantal size is significantly reduced by approximately 44% in young adult mdx mice (5–7 weeks). The average quantum declined further to approximately 37% of non-dystrophic levels in mature (6- to...

    Vertebral cement augmentation can restore the stiffness and strength of a fractured vertebra and relieve chronic pain. Previous finite element analysis, biomechanical tests and clinical studies have indirectly associated new adjacent vertebral fractures following augmentation to altered loading....

  • Numerical analysis of the influence of the padding-plate on the extended end-plate connection. Shaoqin Zhang; Lei Wu // Applied Mechanics & Materials;2014, Issue 578-579, p505 

    In the present paper, we investigate the effect of a padding-plate on the behavior of extended end-plate semi-rigid connections. The numerical simulations were carried out for a standard extended end-plate connection joint without padding-plate and two connection joints with 4mm and 6mm thick...

    Purpose: To determine regional variations in the thickness of human cervical spine endplates with high spatial resolution.Material and Methods: Six explanted human cadaveric spine specimens underwent computed tomography (CT) scanning. Measurement of endplate thickness...

    Twenty-one patients with back pain originating from the endplate injuries were selected to explore the methods of diagnosis and surgical treatment. All patients underwent examinations using radiography, CT, and MR imaging. Pain level of disc was determined through discography in each patient....

    The existence of a distinct ganglionated myenteric plexus between the two layers of the striated tunica muscularis of the mammalian esophagus has represented an enigma for quite a while. Although an enteric co-innervation of vagally innervated motor endplates in the esophagus has been suggested...
