The aim of the research on experimental parts was to analyse the influence of the lumbar stabilisation on the strength aspects of the lumbar part of human spine and stabiliser in case of spondylolisthesis treatment. The models were built with the use of pre-surgical CT diagnostics, routinely used in medical practice. MIMICS software was used to process the results of the neuroimaging research and to create a 3D model. Two models were built: one with and the other without a stabilizer. Afterwards, a static load analysis for the load coming from the upper part of the body was done. Analysis was performed using the finite element method (FEA). The performed simulations enabled to determine the stress in particular discs for both models, with and without transpedicular stabiliser.
