Synopsis: 231 patients with symptomatic lumbar degenerative disc disease were randomized to undergo total disc replacement (TDR) with either a mobile core disc (MCD) or constrained core disc (CCD) implant system. The purpose of this posthoc analysis was to determine if either implant was associated with significantly improved postoperative range of motion, radiographic success, and clinical measures after two years. Results revealed that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 322 patients with advanced degenerative spinal stenosis with up to grade I spondylolisthesis were randomized to undergo treatment with decompression and pedicle screw arthrodesis or with an interlaminar stabilization device. This 5-year follow-up study was conducted in order to determine if the stabilization device was able to yield greater efficacy and safety in comparison to the standard treatment in the long-term. The number of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 60 patients with mechanical low back pain were randomized to a slump sitting method or a conventional method when surgeons were obtaining lumbar flexion radiographs to determine spinal instability. Although patients underwent both methods, randomization indicated which method would be performed first. The study was Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 230 patients with moderate to severe lumbar spinal stenosis were randomized to undergo open microsurgical decompression either with or without an interlaminar stabilization (ILS) system. The purpose of this study was to determine if the addition of an ILS system was associated with a significantly improved rate of overall success (improvement in 2/3 Zurich Claudication Questionnairecompontents and a 20mm improvement in VAS back pain) and clinical outcomes measures after 24 months. Findings suggested that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 554 patients who displayed an annular defect width of 6mm or greater, were randomized to undergo discectomy either with or without the application of an annular closer device (Barricade®). The study was conducted in order to determine if the use of this device could considerably reduce the rate of reoperations and reherniations in patients with defects of this size. The findings of Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 285 patients with a vertebral compression fracture (VCF) were randomized to treatment with the Kiva System (Kiva; Benvenue Medical Inc., Santa Clara, CA) or to balloon kyphoplasty (BK; Medtronic, Minneapolis, MN). The objective of this study was to compare the two treatments with regards to cost-effectiveness and incidence of serious adverse events (SAEs) that require hospital readmission. Findings indicated that Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: Single-level lumbar interbody fusion was performed in 103 patients with supplementation of either interspinous process fixation (ISPF) or standard pedicle screw fixation (PSF). The purpose of this study was to compare the perioperative and clinical outcomes of ISPF and PSF. Findings indicated no Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 82 patients with two-level spinal stenosis and degenerative lumbar spondylolisthesis from a previous randomized controlled trial which evaluated the use decompression and interlaminar stabilization (ILS) with the Coflex device, and decompression with instrumented posterolateral fusion, were included in this secondary radiographic analysis. The purpose of this current study was evaluate radiographic parameters of segmental range of motion and disc-space height of the index segments and 1st and 2nd adjacent segments between the two treatment groups over 5-year follow-up. Results demonstrated a Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 380 patients with cervical radiculopathy due to cervical disc disease were allocated to undergo either cervical disc arthroplasty (CDA) with a SECURE-C Cervical artificial disc or conventional anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). The purpose of this study was to examine and compare rates of subsequent surgery on one or more adjacent segments. Results demonstrated lower Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 209 patients with one-level symptomatic cervical disc disease were randomized to undergo cervical artificial disc replacement (C-ADR) or anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) for the purpose of determining whether C-ADR was associated with a reduction in radiographic adjacent level degeneration (ALD) and superior disc range of motion (two postoperative complications commonly associated with standard ACDF). Significantly lower progression Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 52 patients with degenerative disc disease and resultant cervical radiculopathy and/or myelopathy were randomized to undergo a cervical disc arthroplasty with the NuNEC Cervical Arthroplasty System implant or the PRESTIGE LP Cervical Disc System implant. The study was conducted in order to determine if there was any significant difference between implants in surgical, clinical, or radiographical outcomes. Reported outcomes demonstrated Read More »
Conference Report
Synopsis: 575 patients with cervical degenerative disease were randomized to undergo cervical disc arthroplasty (CDA) or anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) for the purpose of determining whether or not patient age significantly influenced several neck-related clinical outcomes after 5 years. Neck Disability Index (NDI) scores, visual analogue scale (VAS) pain scores, Short Form-12 physical component summary (SF-12 PCS) scores, and percentage of patients with NDI success were comparable for CDA and ACDF patients in both age groups (<50 years or >50 years). Secondary surgery rates Read More »
