STUDY DESIGN An in vitro biomechanical study of C4-C5 intervertebral disc replacement using a cadaveric model. OBJECTIVES To investigate the degree of motion afforded by a ball-and-socket cervical intervertebral disc prosthesis design. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Intervertebral disc prostheses designs attempt to restore or maintain cervical disc motion after anterior cervical discectomy and reduce the likelihood of accelerated degeneration in adjacent discs by maintaining normal motion at… CONTINUE READING
