Current Management Considerations For Total Intervertebral Disc Replacement – Lumbar Disc Replacement

This article discusses the burden of lumbar and cervical spine pain and the traditional treatment methods such as fusion or discectomy. However, these methods have been associated with complications and undesired reoperation rates. Therefore, there is a need for innovation in the treatment of spine pain, which may be addressed by a technique called intervertebral disc arthroplasty or total disc replacement (TDR). The article aims to describe the current management strategy of TDR and explore its utilization in practice to help guide clinical decision-making. The keywords associated with this topic are degenerative disc disease, intervertebral disc arthroplasty, and total disc replacement

Abstract

The burden of disease with regards to lumbar and cervical spine pain are two long-standing, pervasive problems within medicine that have yet to be resolved. Specifically, neck and back pain are associated with chronic pain, disability, and exorbitant healthcare utilization worldwide which has only been exacerbated by the rise in overall life years and chronic disease. Traditionally, cases of significant pain and disability secondary to pathology of either the cervical or lumbar spine are treated via fusion or discectomy. Although these interventions have proven curative in the short-term, numerous longitudinal studies evaluating the efficacy of traditional management have reported severe impairment of normal spinal range of motion, as well as post-operative complications, including neurologic injury, radiculopathy, osteolysis, subsidence, and infection-paired with less than desirable reoperation rates. Consequently, there is a call for innovation and improvement in the treatment of lumbar and cervical spine pain that may be answered by a modern technique known as intervertebral disc arthroplasty, or total disc replacement (TDR). Thus, this review aims to describe the current management strategy of TDR and to explore updated considerations for its utilization in practice, both to help guide clinical decision-making.
