Fusion Versus Disc Replacement for Discogenic Pain

The ultimate treatment for symptomatic disc degeneration should be disc arthroplasty instead of arthrodesis.

Lumbar Interbody Fusion Devices: A Comparative Study

Preliminary report on a prospective randomized concurrently on-going IDE study comparing the clinical outcomes of several metal cage fixation devices.

Outcomes of Allogenic Cages in ALIF and PLIF: Discussion

A number of studies have examined the outcome of interbody fusions. It should be realized that there are many types of spinal surgical techniques and healing processes.

Outcomes in Allogenic Cages in ALIF and PLIF: Interbody Spacer

A posterior lumbar interbody (PLIF) spacer is a contoured, wedge-shaped cortical allograft that comes in five anterior heights.

Outcomes of Allogenic Cages in ALIF and PLIF: Biological Fusion Cages

The aim is to provide mechanical support to the segment being fused with biocompatible implant material and to allow the use of autogenous bone to promote spinal fusion.

Outcomes of Allogenic Cages in ALIF and PLIF: Anatomy and Biomechanics of Interbody Fusion

Interbody fusions provide the most logical solution to diseases of the spine's intervertebral discs.

Outcomes of Allogenic Cages in ALIF and PLIF: History

Spinal fusion can be accomplished by various techniques such as posterior and/or anterior procedures with and without internal fixation.

Outcomes of Allogenic Cages in Anterior and Posterior Lumbar Interbody Fusion

This article provides a review of two newly developed biological cages; the femoral ring allograft (FRA) space and the posterior lumbar interbody fusion (PLIF) spacer.

Outcomes of Allogenic Cages in ALIF and PLIF: Outcomes

Outcome discussion of a total of 179 FRA Cages utilized for anterior spinal reconstruction in 137 patients from March 1998 to July 2000.

Fusion vs Disc Replacement for Discogenic Pain: Part 3

We are at the beginning of another period of technology explosion in the field of spine surgery, which can be compared to the "Charnley era" in the development of hip arthroplasty.

Fusion vs Disc Replacement for Discogenic Pain: Part 2

The unique demands on spine arthroplasty implants necessitate that the intervertebral disc is not a true joint and serves a double function of mobility and damping with load repartition properties.
