Lumbar Spinal Stenosis Dynamic Disc Model (LxD)
The newest anatomical detail of this one-level degenerative model includes lateral recess stenosis and foraminal stenosis from an enlarged projecting osteophyte—anatomical information extracted from the natural cadaveric bone. Additional detail includes an L4-5 motion segment with a reduced lordotic curve and significant disc height loss with facet subchondral sclerosis and arthropathy with a thickened ligamentum flavum. Optional cauda equina and rootlets demonstrate increased friction in dynamic extension and opening spinal canal dynamics in flexion—an excellent educational tool to understand central, lateral and foraminal stenosis elements.

I use this product in the VA hospital with my veterans. Side by side with a traditional spine mode I t is a phenomenal way to demonstrate how the facet joints and central canal change. It allows me to better educate my patients on their condition as well as what treatment we can use to help provide relief.

Thank your Stephanie. Glad they are helpful.

I love this model – I use it daily alongside the LxH disc model to educate my patients on the spinal changes associated with degeneration and stenosis. I can’t recommend these models enough, they are an essential part of my practice.

This is the best model lumbar spine I have seen. I am proud to possess one. It will be of great value when explaining to my patients as well as in my research using Upright MRI.
