Abstract

Cervical total disc replacement (cTDR) is now a firm alternative to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) for degenerative disc disease (DDD). Robust level 1 data from Federal Drug Administration-approved clinical trials demonstrated that cTDR is in any case equally safe and effective compared with ACDF for 1- or 2-level DDD. Furthermore, from early postoperative to long-term follow-up of 10 to 15 years, cTDR rates superiorly in many primary clinical outcomes. According to the published literature, at least nine different cTDR devices share this consistent pattern. On the other hand, the surgical treatment of more than 2-level disc disease is haunted by an elusive paradox. It is easily understandable that 3- and 4-level ACDF, with the well-known associated limitations, is not the superlative intervention for a spine segment anatomically designed to provide motion, as cervical spine is. Furthermore, multilevel ACDF exacerbates many of the clinical and biomechanical complications related with single-level fusion. However, as cTDR is not immaculate of constraints and failures, its clinical safety and efficacy and cost-effectiveness in multilevel anterior compressive pathology need to be established. This article analyses the current available evidence supporting the expanded indication of cTDR to 3- and 4-level disc disease, either stand-alone or adjacent to fusion, from a less stringent European perspective.
