The dynamic disc model refers to the ability of a spinal disc's position to be manipulated by body postures and movements. Research on lumbar discs has indicated movement of the anterior and posterior disc that correlates with posture of the spine. The aim of this study was to assess whether, despite its structural differences, the cervical disc responds to flexed and extended postures in a similar fashion to the lumbar disc.

To investigate the correlation between proteolytic enzymes and microangiogenesis in degenerative intervertebral disc nucleus. Forty patients with degenerative disc nucleus pulposus who were admitted ...
The treatment for intervertebral disc degeneration (IDD) has drawn great attention and recent studies have revealed that the p38 MAPK pathway is a potential therapeutic target for delaying the degener...
Proteoglycan (PG) is a major component of the intervertebral disc extracellular matrix (ECM) that acts to hydrate the disc nucleus. Early detection of PG degradation is valuable for both diagnosis and...
The intervertebral disc (IVD) is composed of three separate tissues with distinct origins and properties. Elucidating changes occurring in these tissues in response to injury or age is paramount to id...
To explore the effect of ginsenoside Rg1 on intervertebral disc degeneration (IVDD) in vivo and in vitro and its mechanism.
The objective of this study is to evaluate the safety and efficacy of viable allograft transplantation for the treatment of patients with symptomatic disc degeneration and tissue loss. ...
This Post Market Clinical Follow-up (PMCF) is conducted to collect clinical and radiographic outcome information on patients suffering from intractable symptomatic cervical disc disease re...
The condition being studied is chronic low back or leg pain in patients with internal disc disruption (IDD). The intervention to be studied is the intradiscal delivery of autologous Platel...
Comparison of Software-assisted Implantation of Elastic Spine Pad (TM) With Respect to Postoperative Change in Neck Disability Index (NDI) With the Conventional Disc Prosthesis Rotaio (TM) After Anterior Cervical Discectomy for Cervical Disc Prolapse
This is an investigator-initiated study. The primary goal is to evaluate the efficacy of two different cervical disc prosthetic devices with respect to postoperative change in neck disabil...
Comparison of Software-assisted Implantation of Elastic Spine Pad (TM) With Respect to Postoperative Change in Neck Disability Index (NDI) With the Conventional Disc Spacer Squale (TM) After Anterior Cervical Discectomy for Cervical Disc Prolapse
This is an investigator-initiated study. The primary goal is to evaluate the efficacy of two different cervical disc devices (prosthesis vs rigid spacer) with respect to postoperative chan...
Fibrocartilage inner core of the intervertebral disc. Prolapsed or bulged nucleus pulposus leads to INTERVERTEBRAL DISC DISPLACEMENT while proliferation of cells in the nucleus pulposus is associated with INTERVERTEBRAL DISC DEGENERATION.
The dissolving of the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS, the semi-gelatinous tissue of a displaced INTERVERTEBRAL DISC. It is usually achieved by the direct injection of a proteolytic enzyme, especially CHYMOPAPAIN, into the herniated disc.
An INTERVERTEBRAL DISC in which the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS has protruded through surrounding ANNULUS FIBROSUS. This occurs most frequently in the lower lumbar region.
Outer portion of the intervertebral disc that surrounds the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS.
The replacement of intervertebral discs in the spinal column with artificial devices. The procedure is done in the lumbar or cervical spine to relieve severe pain resulting from INTERVERTEBRAL DISC DEGENERATION.
