Performance of the Hedrocel(R) Cervical Fusion Device
The objective of this clinical investigation is to compare patients treated with Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) using the Hedrocel Cervical Fusion Device, with a concurrent, randomized, control group receiving autologous iliac crest bone graft or allograft and test the hypothesis that ACDF with Hedrocel is non-inferior to ACDF with allograft or autologous bone graft.
The objective of this clinical investigation is to compare patients treated with Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) using the Hedrocel Cervical Fusion Device, with a concurrent, randomized, control group receiving autologous iliac crest bone graft. Success criteria include radiographic evidence of fusion, and improvement in pain, function and overall quality of life. If shown to be successful, the use of the Hedrocel Cervical Fusion Device would eliminate complications associated with harvesting autologous bone graft and provide an alternative for those who are unable to provide autologous bone graft from the iliac crest.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
A rare developmental defect in which the heart is abnormally located partially or totally outside the THORAX. It is the result of defective fusion of the anterior chest wall. Depending on the location of the heart, ectopia cordis can be thoracic, thoracoabdominal, abdominal, and cervical.
The GENETIC RECOMBINATION of the parts of two or more GENES resulting in a gene with different or additional regulatory regions, or a new chimeric gene product. ONCOGENE FUSION includes an ONCOGENE as at least one of the fusion partners and such gene fusions are often detected in neoplastic cells and are transcribed into ONCOGENE FUSION PROTEINS. ARTIFICIAL GENE FUSION is carried out in vitro by RECOMBINANT DNA technology.
A paravertebral sympathetic ganglion formed by the fusion of the inferior cervical and first thoracic ganglia.
A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.
Cervical Length Measurement
A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and preliminary efficacy of NeoFuse in subjects with a diagnosis of degenerative disc disease (DDD) at 2 or more adjacent cervical verte...
The purpose of this study is to establish the safety and effectiveness of the Advent™ Cervical Disc compared to Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) in treating degenerative di...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the SECURE®-C Cervical Artificial Disc for the treatment of symptomatic cervical disc disease at one level between...
The aim of this trial is to evaluate if P-15 bone putty (investigational device) is not inferior in effectiveness and safety to local autologous bone (control device) when applied in instr...
The Zero-P PEEK is a stand-alone device intended for use in cervical interbody fusion. The device consists of a plate and a spacer with four rigid screws to provide similar stability to a...
INTRODUCTION: There is considerable controversy as to which technique is best option for reconstruction after multilevel anterior decompression for cervical spondylosis. The aim...
Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) and anterior lumbar interbody fusion (ALIF) are common surgical procedures for degenerative disc disease of the cervical and lumbar spine. Over the years...
The purpose of this article is to compare the outcomes of three different anterior approaches for three-level cervical spondylosis. The records of 120 patients who underwent anterior approaches becaus...
OBJECTIVE: Our goal was to increase the safety of anterior cervical discectomy, a routine surgery performed by neurosurgeons worldwide, in the face of vertebral artery (VA) anomalies. CLINICAL PRESENT...
BACKGROUND: In an effort to avoid the morbidity associated with autogenous bone graft harvesting, cervical cages in combination with allograft bone are used to achieve fusion. Th...
