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...
The purpose of this study is to show that the Kineflex-C Spinal System is no worse than conventional Anterior Cervical Diskectomy with Fusion (ACDF) in patients with single level degenera...
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 di...
The purpose of this study is to measure the benefits of anterior (from the front) cervical (neck) surgery for degenerative disc disease. The research part of this study is the answering of...
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 aim of this study was to compare the effect of different disease initiators of degenerative disc disease (DDD) within an intervertebral disc (IVD) organ culture system, and to understand the inter...
The intervertebral disc is the largest avascular structure in the body. It relies on passive diffusion from arteries at the periphery of the disc for nutrition. Prior studies have suggested a correlat...
Degenerative disc disease (DDD) is a common spinal disorder that manifests with neck and lower back pain caused by the degeneration of intervertebral discs (IVDs). Currently, there is no treatment to ...
Clinical and radiological features of Three Reconstructive Procedures for the Surgical Management of Patients with Bi-level Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease at a Minimum Follow Up Period of Five Years: A Comparative Study.
To assess the mid-long-term follow-up of the safety and efficacy of anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF), cervical artificial disc replacement (CADR) and hybrid surgery (HS) for bi-level cer...
Mobi-C cervical disc arthroplasty (MCDA) has been regarded as an alternative to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). In this study, the effectiveness and safety between MCDA and ACDF for sy...
Degenerative changes in the INTERVERTEBRAL DISC due to aging or structural damage, especially to the vertebral end-plates.
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.
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.
An INTERVERTEBRAL DISC in which the NUCLEUS PULPOSUS has protruded through surrounding ANNULUS FIBROSUS. This occurs most frequently in the lower lumbar region.
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.
