Restoration Of Range Of Motion In The Cervical Spine Through Single-Segment Artificial Disc Replacement Using The Baguera®C Prosthesis – Cervical Disc Replacement

The article discusses the use of cervical disc arthroplasty (CDA) as an alternative to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) for degenerative diseases of the cervical spine. The study conducted a retrospective analysis on 132 patients who underwent single-level CDA, showing significant improvements in clinical outcomes and increased range of motion (ROM) at the C2-C7 and functional spinal unit (FSU) segments post-operatively. It was found that cervical spine flexibility was preserved and enhanced after the implantation of a viscoelastic artificial disc, with patients showing larger ROMs post-surgery. The study concluded that single-segment artificial disc arthroplasty effectively restores ROM in degenerative cervical spine conditions

Abstract

Background: Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is a standard procedure for degenerative diseases of the cervical spine, providing nerve decompression and spinal stabilization. However, it limits cervical spine motility, restricts fused segment activity, and may lead to adjacent degeneration. Cervical disc arthroplasty (CDA) is an accepted alternative that preserves the structure and flexibility of the cervical spine. This study aimed to explore the dynamic changes in the range of motion (ROM) of the cervical spine after CDA using a viscoelastic artificial disc, as well as the factors affecting mobility restoration. Methods: A retrospective analysis was conducted on 132 patients who underwent single-level anterior cervical discectomy and CDA from January 2015 to June 2022. Result: Analysis of data from 132 patients revealed a significant improvement in clinical outcomes. The mean ROM of C2-C7 and functional spinal unit (FSU) segments significantly increased from 2 to 36 months post-operatively. Cervical spine flexibility was preserved and enhanced after prosthesis implantation. However, it took six months for the cervical spine motility to stabilize. In addition, sex and age were found to impact motility restoration, with female and younger patients exhibiting larger ROMs post-surgery. Additionally, CDA at the C5-C6 level resulted in the greatest increase in ROM, potentially improving overall kinematic ability. Conclusions: Single-segment artificial disc arthroplasty effectively restores the ROM in degenerative cervical spine conditions.

Keywords: ROM of C2–C7; ROM of functional spinal unit (FSU); cervical disc arthroplasty (CDA); cervical spine motility; range of motion (ROM).
