A comparative study of the Artificial Disc replacement versus Discectomy and fusion in the treatment of Cervical Discogenic Cases

Complete or artificial replacement of the disk is a procedure aimed at preserving the height of the intervertebral disk while restoring the physiological motion that a person would have with a healthy disk. This is a surgical procedure which removes the disc tissue and places bone between the vertebral bodies. The purpose of this operation is to connect the vertebra that causes pain around the bone. It is assumed that the discomfort would be reduced substantially by removing the disc tissue and reducing movement. The specific indications, limitations, technique, pitfalls, and complications of the procedure of Cervical Disc Arthroplasty (CDA), compared to (Anterior Cervical Discectomy & Fusion ) ACDF, and the relative predisposition of both procedures to the ( Adjacent Segment Disease ) in process. Radiographic evidence of adjacent segment degeneration (ASDeg) following anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) was, however, recognized to exceed 50 percent within 10 years, while the annual incidence of symptomatic adjacent segment disease (ASD-ASD is a neurological and developmental condition that begins early in infancy and persists for a person's life. It affects how one person behaves, interacts, communicates, and connects with others. This encompasses what used to be called the Asperger syndrome and omnipresent developmental disabilities. It is considered a "spectrum" condition since a variety of symptoms can occur in people with ASD. People with ASD can have difficulty talking to you, or when you talk to them they may not look you in the eye. You may have restricted interests and repetitive behaviors, too. We may be spending a lot of time putting things in order or they could constantly say the same phrase. They may often seem to be in their "own world") is approximately 2.9%, the problem which inspired the development of motion sparing surgeries, of which cervical disc arthroplasty (CDA) is still a debatable issue.
