  2. 2. Patient History57 yr old maleStatus post Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion atC6/7 for radiculopathy.Massive neck pain and arm painOn MRI found to have myeloradiculopathy due to asecond level supra adjacent degeneration disk herniationat C4-5. The disk herniation effacing the cord into theneural foramen bilaterally.The patient was offered either a 3-level fusion, (becausedoing a fusion above and below a normal segment wouldput this segment at too much risk of having spinal corddecompression) or a cervical total disk replacement atthe C4/5 level.
  3. 3. Pre-op X-rays This patient is a unusual situation where there is a healthy level between the prior fusion andC4/5 Degenerated current discDisc degeneration at C4/5. An Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Normal Disc Fusion would require Space treating the healthy disc as well as the Previous degenerated disc. Fusion The Artificial Disc allowed us to treat only the affected area.
