Five-year follow-up of clinical and radiological outcomes of LP-ESP elastomeric lumbar total disc replacement in active patients

Jean-Yves Lazennec, MD, PhD, Jean-Patrick Rakover, MD, Marc-Antoine Rousseau, MD PhD Abstract Background context The surgical treatment of degenerative disc disease at the lumbar spine may involve fusion. Total disc replacement (TDR) is an alternative treatment to avoid fusion-related adverse events, specifically adjacent segment disease. New generation of elastomeric non-articulating devices has been developed to more effectively replicate...

Motion preservation with monoblock total disc replacement – First experience in multi-level cervical and lumbar treatment: Biren DESAI (Cologne – Germany)

Chronic degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine with all consequences are among the most common diseases in orthopedics. The lumbar and cervical disc replacement (arthroplasty) as an alternative to interbody fusion (arthrodesis) has opend a new era of spinal surgery. The Fusion has been the gold standard of surgical care for a long time. But the incidence...
