Why is it important?
The research questions that this study seeks to answer are as follows: (1) Can we produce an A/W bioceramic composite interbody fusion cage that is sufficiently robust to withstand various physiologic loading levels? (2)Dodifferent cage geometries have a distinct effect on mechanical behavior.
