Abstract

Prosthesis design has an influence on the quantity and quality of postoperative motion after cervical disc arthroplasty. Prostheses with built-in resistance to angular and translational motion may have an advantage in restoring physiologic motion. The ability of a prosthesis to work with remaining bony and soft tissues to restore motion and load-sharing is a function of the kinematic degrees of freedom DOF, axis of rotation for a given motion, and device stiffness. How these characteristics allow the prosthesis to work with the patient’s anatomy will determine whether the prosthesis is successful at restoring motion and mitigating adjacent-level stresses.
