Delayed Failure Of M6-C Cervical Disc Arthroplasty After Conversion Of Adjacent Cervical Disc Arthroplasty To Fusion: A Case Report – Cervical Disc Replacement

The article discusses a case of delayed failure of an M6-C cervical disc arthroplasty after the conversion of a subjacent failed cervical disc arthroplasty to fusion. The annular component of the M6-C disc had failed, and the core had been ejected. Histology showed a giant cell reaction to polyethylene debris, and tissue cultures were positive for Cutibacterium acnes. This is the first reported case of M6-C failure after the conversion of an adjacent arthroplasty to fusion. The findings highlight concerns about the device’s durability and the importance of regular clinical and radiographic monitoring for patients with this type of cervical disc arthroplasty
