Study of Safety & Effectiveness of PRESTIGEÂ® LP Cervical Disc vs. Anterior Cervical Fusion in Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease
The purpose of this clinical trial is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the PRESTIGE® LP Cervical Disc as a method of treating patients with symptoms of cervical degenerative disc disease at a single level from C3-C4 to C6-C7.
This pivotal clinical trial is being conducted to compare treatment data of the investigational implant device,the PRESTIGE® LP Cervical Disc, with a control patient group receiving a plate. The PRESTIGE® LP Cervical Disc device will be implanted using an anterior surgical approach. Data from control patients receiving anterior cervical discectomy and fusion with an ATLANTIS Anterior Cervical Plate from the initial Artificial Cervical Disc study (IDE # G010188)will be compared as both treatment groups receive single-level surgical treatment from C3-C4 to C6-C7 for symptomatic cervical degenerative disc disease.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
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 first cervical vertebra.
Cervical Rib Syndrome
A condition associated with compression of the BRACHIAL PLEXUS; SUBCLAVIAN ARTERY; and SUBCLAVIAN VEIN at the thoracic outlet and caused by a complete or incomplete anomalous CERVICAL RIB or fascial band connecting the tip of a cervical rib with the first thoracic rib. Clinical manifestations may include pain in the neck and shoulder which radiates into the upper extremity, PARESIS or PARALYSIS of brachial plexus innervated muscles; sensory loss; PARESTHESIAS; ISCHEMIA; and EDEMA. (Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, p214)
A supernumerary rib developing from an abnormal enlargement of the costal element of the C7 vertebra. This anomaly is found in 1-2% of the population and can put pressure on adjacent structures causing CERVICAL RIB SYNDROME; THORACIC OUTLET SYNDROME; or other conditions.
