Endplates play a major role in intervertebral disc (IVD) health, but the opposite could also be true with changes in IVD affecting the morphological features of endplates. We here hypothesize that changes in biomechanical environment due to disc herniation will change the thickness and apparent density of the endplates at the index level.
