Within this database, only about one-third are used in orthopedic applications, and in the clinical environment, these alloys are generally referred to in very general terms such as titanium, Ti6Al4V, stainless steel A316L, or cobalt-chrome, CoCrMoC. For the purpose of spinal applications, it may be convenient to consider the general alloy systems, ferrous stainless steel, titanium and its alloys, cobalt-chromium, and tantalum. From this standpoint, the characteristics along with their clinical advantages and disadvantages can be discussed.

The intervertebral disc is a fibrocartilaginous 2 Joint: Normal Anatomy, Function, and Pathological Condition 33 complex that forms the articulation between the vertebral bodies. The intervertebral disc can be divided into two components: an outermost fibrous ring, annulus fibrosus, and within a gelatinous core, nucleus pulposus. 3 Diarthrodial Joint/Synovial Joint The diarthrodial joint is the most common joint which is cavitated to form a freely movable connecting unit between two bones. The diarthrodial joint has the articular cavity between the bones, and the synovial fluid exists in the cavity.
