	  abstract     = {The aim of this study is to develop an anterior lumbar
interbody fusion (ALIF) PEEK cage suitable for Korean people. In this
study, CT images were obtained from Korean male (173cm, 71kg) and
3D Korean lumbar models were reconstructed based on the CT images
to investigate anatomical characteristics. Major design parameters of
anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) PEEK Cage were selected
using the morphological measurement information of the Korean
Lumbar models. Through finite element analysis and mechanical tests,
the developed ALIFPEEK Cage prototype was compared with the
Fidji Cage (Zimmer. Inc, USA) and it was found that the ALIF
prototype showed similar and/or superior mechanical performance
compared to the FidJi Cage. Also, clinical validation for the ALIF
PEEK Cage prototype was carried out to check predictable troubles in
surgical operations. Finally, it is considered that the convenience and
stability of the prototype was clinically verified.
