KU researchers engineer synthetic spinal tissue to aid surgery on discs

www.kuconnection.org [cached]

The scientists -- Elizabeth Friis, KU assistant professor of mechanical engineering, and Doug Pence, clinical associate professor of surgery at the KU School of Medicine in Wichita -- are collaborating with Pacific Research Laboratories, a Seattle company that makes synthetic bones.
Elizabeth Friis, KU assistant professor of mechanical engineering "What we're doing is putting together our soft tissue with their bones to form a mechanical version of a lumbar spine segment," said Friis. Friis is applying to the National Institutes of Health and private foundations for funding. With funding, she said, the artificial spine could be ready in two years or less. The artificial spine will be useful in the future when spinal surgeons do disc implants. Such surgery is in clinical trials in the United States, Friis said. "A lot of types of implants are being designed but not tested sufficiently," she said.
