The elastic fiber network of the anulus fibrosus of the normal and scoliotic human intervertebral disc.

Abstract:

STUDY DESIGN: Immunohistochemical study of elastic fibers in human intervertebral discs (IVD) collected at surgery from patients with scoliosis. OBJECTIVES: To compare the elastic fiber network in scoliotic discs (idiopathic scoliosis or neuromuscular scoliosis) to that of control (normal) discs.
