Authors: Robert J. Jackson


Kudos to Sasso et al. for their diligence in presenting the 7- and 10-year clinical results of single-level Bryan Disc cervical arthroplasty and anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). Level 1, prospective outcome data on 47 patients from a single center of a multicenter FDA IDE trial were assessed with regard to neck disability index (NDI), visual analog scale (VAS) neck and arm pain scores, and reoperation. Data was available for 89% (42/47) of patients at 10 years.
