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 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...
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 ...
Case series OBJECTIVE.: The aim of this study was to assess the patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) and patient satisfaction of multi-level lumbar total disc arthroplasty (TDA) for symptomatic m...
Posterior foraminotomy versus anterior decompression and fusion in patients with cervical degenerative disc disease with radiculopathy: up to 5 years of outcome from the national Swedish Spine Register.
The long-term efficacy of posterior foraminotomy compared with anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF) for the treatment of degenerative disc disease with radiculopathy has not been previous...
Lumbar fusion is considered to the gold standard for treatment of spinal degenerative diseases but results in adjacent segment degeneration and acquired spinal instability. Total disc replacement is a...
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.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
