FH Orthopedics: LP-ESP Disc Replacement Study Update -

Study results indicate that FH Orthopedics' LP-ESP® Lumbar Prosthesis demonstrated excellent midterm follow-up results in total disc replacement at five years.The study tracked 61 active patients who underwent follow-up at regular intervals. Authors reported significant improvement in midterm clinical outcomes, consistent with previously published studies, and "a surprisingly low rate of revision surgery and no adjacent level disease or facet joint problems." FH Orthopedics has surpassed the milestone of 5,000 LP-ESP devices implanted to date; the same is true for the CP-ESP® Cervical Prosthesis. (FH Orthopedics SAS, 2/5/19)
