Despite efforts toward achieving gender equality in clinical trial enrollment, females are often underrepresented, and gender-specific data analysis is often unavailable. Identifying and reducing gend...
Long-Term Comparison of Health Care Utilization and Reoperation Rates in Patients Undergoing Cervical Disc Arthroplasty (CDA) and Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) for Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease.
Retrospective cohort analysis BACKGROUND: Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) has been the gold standard procedure for single level degenerative disc disease (DDD). Recently, cervical disc ...
To investigate the correlation between fatty infiltration in the multifidus muscle related to the involved nerve root and structural parameters associated with stenosis in patients with degenerative l...
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...
To compare the safety and effectiveness of minimally invasive transforaminal lumbar interbody fusion (MI-TLIF) to open TLIF (O-TLIF) for lumbar degenerative disease.
This study will look at the result of using the FLD device as an artificial lumbar disc. The study will compare the safety and effectiveness of the FLD artificial lumbar disc to an already...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of XL TDR in patients with single-level degenerative disc disease compared to other devices approved by the FDA for th...
This study evaluates efficacy of stabilizing training of deep core muscles in the lumbar spine in degenerative disc disease subjects, considering the progression level of degenerative disc...
The study is designed to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the CHARITE Artificial Disc compared to anterior lumbar interbody fusion for treatment of degenerative disc disease at one...
To compare the functional results through the improvement of the Oswestry medium-term score of the lumbar arthrodesis performed to treat patients with lumbago and/or lumbar-radicular pain ...
An INTERVERTEBRAL DISC in which the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS has protruded through surrounding ANNULUS FIBROSUS. This occurs most frequently in the lower lumbar region.
Degenerative changes in the INTERVERTEBRAL DISC due to aging or structural damage, especially to the vertebral end-plates.
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.
Outgrowth of immature bony processes or bone spurs (OSTEOPHYTE) from the VERTEBRAE, reflecting the presence of degenerative disease and calcification. It commonly occurs in cervical and lumbar SPONDYLOSIS.
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.
