Therefore, when contracted bilaterally during a symmetrical activity, such as lifting in a lordotic
posture, the lumbar fibres of iliocostalis lumborum and longissimus thoracis have the potential to produce large posterior translation and resist anterior shear forces acting on the lumbar spine (Macintosh and Bogduk 1991).
The article quoted clearly shows that the authors understood that femoral abduction could contribute to a lordotic
curve in the lumbar spine.
1) Compensatory curves are lordotic
and are described as being convex anterior (concave posterior).
This pattern of poor bio-mechanics can contribute to a lordotic
Methodic assessment is done using the lordotic
lines of the spine (Fig 3).

The positional films often show malalignment of vertebrae in the area of the damaged ligament, such as loss of the normal lordotic

Its innovative design allows for controlled translation in flexion-extension which was confirmed by clinical findings and is the only device on the market with a lordotic
Following the US FDA approval, the company will introduce COALESCE for TLIF and PLIF procedures in multiple footprint, height and lordotic
angle configurations later this year.
Also, as part of the cervical iGA platform, the Company will be launching the CoRoent Small InterlockTM Hyperlordotic system, the first anterior cervical interfixated implant designed to treat cervical alignment deformities by offering multiple lordotic
options to address patient-specific correction.
The curvatures were obtained with an inelastic flexible ruler placed from the spinous processes of T1 to that of T12 and from T12 to S2 for thoracic kyphotic and lumbar lordotic
curvatures respectively in line with earlier procedures.
