Axial loading, rotation and bending were applied to human cadaveric lumbar segments to investigate changes in disc mechanics with denucleation and incremental delivery of a novel hydrogel nucleus replacement implant. Changes in disc height, range of motion, neutral zone, hysteresis and stiffness were examined.
