A prospective, double blinded, multi-center study to assess the validity and clinical utility of the pre-operative NOCISCAN-LS software in the identification of painful lumbar discs, and the correlation with improved surgical outcomes at 3, 6, 12 and 24 months (follow-up) following spine surgery in a single enrollment arm of subjects with chronic symptomatic single level degenerative disc disease (DDD) at L3 to S1, but with two evaluation groups- Match Group and Miss Group,of subjects based on the association between the NOCISCORE results of treated and untreated disc levels.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

Degenerative changes in the INTERVERTEBRAL DISC due to aging or structural damage, especially to the vertebral end-plates.
