Description

The PRESTIGE LP™ Cervical Disc is indicated in skeletally mature patients for reconstruction of the disc from C3-C7 following discectomy at one level or two contiguous levels for intractable radiculopathy (arm pain and/or a neurological deficit) with or without neck pain, or myelopathy due to abnormality localized to the level of the disc space and at least one of the following conditions confirmed by imaging (CT, MRI, X-rays): herniated nucleus pulposus, spondylosis (defined by the presence of osteophytes), and/or visible loss of disc height as compared to adjacent levels. The PRESTIGE LP™ Cervical Disc is implanted using an anterior approach. Patients should have failed at least 6 weeks of non-operative treatment or have had the presence of progressive symptoms or signs of nerve root/spinal cord compression in the face of continued non-operative management prior to implantation of the PRESTIGE LP™ Cervical Disc.
