Spine 2005;30(23): 2621–2630. 75 Structural failure is important because it adversely affects the mechanical environment of disc cells (Fig. 9,76,77 Moreover, it does so permanently because adult discs have too few cells to repair their matrix. 82 Structural disruption progresses, both mechanically and biologically, and animal models confirm that it always leads to typical degenerative changes83 over a time span that increases with the size of the animal. Examples of mechanical progression are the propagation of fissures or cracks, and the buckling of already-collapsing lamellae in the anulus.

6). Rim tears involve avulsions of the outer anulus fibers from bone and often occur in the anterolateral margins, suggesting an etiology involving torsional stresses. 66 Internal collapse (“internal disc disruption”67) is common, especially in the anterior anulus (Fig. 5C). Endplate fracture is the most common injury to occur after compressive overload. 68,69 Disc prolapse involves relative movement between nucleus and anulus in such a manner that the outer surface of the disc is disturbed: typically, nucleus pulposus material is expressed into or through a radial fissure70 as shown in Fig.
