Spineart announced today the results published in the Journal of Spine from a multicenter European prospective registry for the BAGUERA ®C cervical disc prosthesis: Radiographic Outcome and Adjacent Segment Evaluation Two Years after Cervical Disc Replacement with the BAGUERA ®C Prosthesis as Treatment of Degenerative Cervical Disc Disease(1).
A retrospective analysis of a large range of radiographic parameters was performed by an independent evaluator: 99 patients, treated for symptomatic degenerative disc diseases, by one- or two-level arthroplasty, using a total of 123 BAGUERA® C prostheses were included.
Radiographic images at the treated and adjacent levels, as well at the overall cervical region, were analyzed.
The results, 2 years after treatment by arthroplasty using BAGUERA® C, demonstrate good mobility at the treated and adjacent levels, disc height restoration and clear evidence of adjacent levels preservation. There were no signs of subsidence of the prostheses. Measures at the adjacent levels showed no signs of degeneration or kyphosis. Occurrence of heterotopic ossifications was considered low compared to data published by independent evaluators for other disc prosthesis.
The publication further established cervical arthroplasty using the BAGUERA®C disc prosthesis as a safe, effective and motion preserving surgical treatment. The author also considered the results encouraging in terms of adjacent level disease protection.
So far, more than 15’000 BAGUERA® C disc prosthesis have been implanted successfully worldwide. The first surgery was performed in France in January 2007.
This implant is not available in the USA. For more information, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
