This model shows the stages of disc prolapse and vertebral degeneration in various degrees. The degenerative changes to the vertebral bodies and intervertebral discs of the lumbar spine are shown in anatomical detail.

The vertebra model is based on the original cast of a human lumbar spine, showing even the finest bone structures accurately. The following conditions are shown from top to bottom on the spine model:

  • Intervertebral disc in healthy condition
  • Lumbar vertebra (L1) without degenerative changes
  • Intervertebral disc with protrusion
  • Lumbar vertebra (L2) with beginning degenerative changes
  • Intervertebral disc with medial prolapse
  • Lumbar vertebra (L3) with advanced degenerative changes
  • Intervertebral disc with intraforaminal prolapse on the right
  • Lumbar vertebra (L4) with strong degenerative changes and bony constriction of the left intervertebral foramen
  • Extremely narrowed intervertebral disc
  • Lumbar vertebra (L5) with strong degenerative changes and bony constriction of the left intervertebral foramen with pressure on the spinal nerve root L5 on the left.

The spine degeneration model can be disassembled into vertebrae and intervertebral discs for closer inspection, and comes supplied on base.
