Abstract

Traditional fusion methods for treating symptomatic segmental disc disease, which include discectomies (decompression) and arthrodesis (with or without decompression), are considered the standard of care in many instances. However, there are numerous problems and disadvantages coming out of these procedures: the loss of spinal mobility and flexibility, a permanent change of motion characteristics and biomechanics, and grafting collapse that determines suboptimal sagittal balance. In addition, one of the most prevalent concerns following fusion at one or more levels is the transfer of stress to adjacent levels, which often requires new surgeries, complications, and more pain. The new motion preserving technologies offer significant advantages, including maintenance of motion range as well as the mechanical characteristics, the restoration of the natural disc height and the spinal alignment, significant pain reduction, and preservation from adjacent segment degeneration.
