In vitro-testing of cervical total disc replacement – Analysis of kinematics and intradiscal pressures in a polysegmental model

D. Daentzer, B. Richter, B. Welke, N. Husmann, C. Jansen & C. Hurschler
Objective: For most cases of degenerative disc disease of the cervical spine, decompression and fusion is the standard procedure. However, the implantation of total disc replacement (TDR) is used more frequent as an alternative technique to maintain segmental range of motion (ROM) and to prevent adjacent[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
