Orthofix M6-C Artificial Cervical Disc Study: Full 2-Year Data -

Full 2-year outcomes from a U.S. IDE study of Orthofix Medical's M6-C™ artificial cervical disc demonstrated that disc replacement with the device is not inferior to treatment with ACDF. Results from the prospective, non-randomized, concurrently controlled clinical trial indicate that patients treated with M6-C had significant improvements in pain, function and quality of life. Further, at 24 months, patients in the ACDF group who were still using pain medications had a 7x higher rate of opioid use than those who received M6-C. (Orthofix Medical, 4/2/19)
