AbstractINTRODUCTION: Schmorl's nodes of the thoraco-lumbar region have been associated with the presence and severity of disc degeneration in adults. The etiology of Schmorl's nodes remains precarious; however a unique multilevel phenotype of 'kissing' nodes seems to suggest a developmental origin. The neurocentral synchondrosis (NCS) are cartilaginous growth plates near the neural arch ossification centres in a growing vertebrae that may play a direct role in the development of endplate abnormalities, such as Schmorl's nodes. This study assessed the NCS in ...
