2014-03-17 00:39:01 - MediPoint: Cervical Total Disc Replacement - Global Analysis and Market Forecasts - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
New technology has evolved to tackle degenerative spinal disease, but is enough post-surgery data available to make claims on the efficacy of vertebral implants. Symptomatic Cervical Disc Disease (SCDD) is a degenerative condition of the spine that can cause debilitating pain and neurological dysfunction. Around 11 million individuals across the globe reportedly suffered from SCDD in 2011, and this number is set to grow as the global population ages.
For several decades, Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) represented the hallmark surgical intervention for SCDD, alleviating pain by removing the affected intervertebral disc and fusing adjacent vertebrae together. However, years after the commencement of these procedures, many individuals post-operatively developed SCDD in intervertebral disc levels adjacent to those which were operated
on. It is thought that the fusing of adjacent vertebrae may have prompted the progression of SCDD along the spine. Cervical Total Disc Replacements (C-TDR) were thus invented to alleviate pain by replacing the damaged disc completely, retaining the motion of the operated level.
