Another Dynamic Disc Model, this one without a herniation. This non-herniating model has been designed with the practitioner in mind who wants to minimize any nocebo effects to optimize a patient’s outlook. Constructed with materials that are durable and can withstand compressive loads without a radial tear, which will contain the nucleus within the annulus showing a natural bulge under load. This L4-5 model crafted from a cadaveric specimen with minimal osteophytosis incorporates a see-through L4 vertebra with visible details of the intervertebral disc; including both an active nucleus pulposus and annulus fibrosis. Further features include deep annular fissures, a partial annular fissure, disc innervation, neo-innervation, L5 endplate fracture, endplate pores, painted blue hyaline cartilage, painted red subchondral bone… all to help the practitioner effectively educate patients about self-anatomy in a non-scary way. Showing even with internal pathological findings that the motion segment is adaptive and quite resilient…empowering patients with an optimistic prognosis. A ligamentum flavum (LF) is included with this model to stabilize the posterior elements.
