Intervertebral Disk Replacement

Comments Off

A small study shows promise for intervertebral disk replacement rather than spinal fusion or artificial disk replacements.

Preliminary experience in 5 patients with degenerative spine disease suggests that transplantation of fresh-frozen intervertebral disks preserved motion and stability of the spinal unit, despite some signs of mild degeneration in the disks over follow-up. Neurologic symptoms in all patients were also improved compared with before-surgery levels.
