New study results suggest strong support of the safety of the prodisc® C Cervical Total Disc Replacement from Centinel Spine.
In the study of 504 consecutive patients, investigators found no secondary surgery requirements for device failure and a low reoperation rate of 5.5%, including the learning curve for every participating surgeon. The study encompassed results, specifically reoperation rates, for all consecutive patients receiving a prodisc C over a 15-year timeframe at a single center.
Single-center study designs eliminate many surgical and data collection variables seen in multi-center analyses, and address multi-center study weaknesses such as learning curve effects. In this study, prodisc C was the first arthroplasty device utilized by many of the surgeons.
