The maximum stress of adjacent intervertebral discs. a The average increase in L3–L4 stress was linearly correlated with the height of the cage. b L3–L4 stress in mild degeneration group. c L3–L4 stress in moderate degeneration group. d L3–L4 stress in severe degeneration group. e The average increase in L5–S1 stress was linearly correlated with the height of the cage. f L5–S1 stress in mild degeneration group. g L5–S1 stress in moderate degeneration group. h L5–S1 stress in severe degeneration group
