The SECURE-C® Cervical Artificial Disc is a motion-sparing technology designed as an alternative to fusion. Through its unique selectively constrained design, SECURE-C® is designed to allow up to ±15º motion in flexion-extension and up to ±10º motion in lateral bending. The design is intended to allow unlimited axial rotation and to permit sagittal plane translation of ±1.25mm. Clinical study data demonstrate statistical superority of SECURE-C® ACDF in terms of overall success, subsequent surgery, and patient satisfaction at 24 months postoperative.
Motion Preservation: SECURE-C® is designed to allow motion through its novel selectively constrained design, which provides articulation and sagittal plane translation.
Optimal Fit: SECURE-C® is available in two sagittal profiles (0º & 6º lordosis) and a range of footprints and heights to fit the disc space and curvature of the spine.
Streamlined Technique: Exclusive instrumentation allows device placement in three basic steps: Trial – Chisel – Insert
What is the SECURE®-C Cervical Artificial Disc?
The SECURE®-C Cervical Artificial Disc consists of two metallic endplates (cobalt
chromium molybdenum alloy, CoCrMo) and a polyethylene (plastic) inner core.
The materials used in the device are commonly used in orthopedic implants.
The two endplates are secured to the top and bottom surfaces of the involved
vertebrae (the bones in the spine) and the core fits between them. The implanted
device is designed to allow motion at the treated level as the plastic core moves against the metallic endplates.
