Abstract

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.

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.

Introduction

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.

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.

Methods

This non-randomized clinical trial was conducted in the period between January 2015 and January 2017, on a group of 40 patients who suffered Childhood disintegrative disorder (CDD), also known as Heller's syndrome and disintegrative psychosis, is a rare condition that is characterized by late developmental delays in language , social interaction and motor skills (> 3 years of age) .The cause of that is unclear. CDD occurs in children who have had normal development before, and who then begin to regress, often quickly. The disorder can start to develop in days or develop over time, and most usually starts in the fourth year of life, though some variability is present, which is divided into two groups (ACDF- Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion is an operation designed to remove a herniated or degenerative neck disk. An incision is made to enter and remove the disc in the throat region. A graft is used to connect the bones above and below the disks together. and CDA- Congenital dyserythropoietic anemia (CDA) is an inherited blood disorder which has an impact on red blood cell growth. This disease is one of the causes of anemia, a condition marked by red blood cell shortage, into groups), with 20 patients per each. Clinical outcomes were evaluated using the Visual Analog Scale (VAS), and the Neck Disability Index (NDI). Operative data, complications, hospital stay, return-to-work intervals, and the Pre-Operative & Six-Months postoperative for the Superior and Inferior Adjacent Segments Range of Motion (ROM), and changes occurring to it were evaluated.

Results

No statistically significant differences were found between the two groups regarding clinical outcome, functional scores, complications, hospital stay, and return-to-work intervals (P > 0.05). Operative time was significantly longer in CDA group (P < 0.05), while ACDF group showed a statistically significant Postoperative & Preoperative difference in the mean Range of Motion in the C5-6 superior and inferior adjacent segments, compared to the insignificant mean difference in the Cervical Disc Arthroplasty group (P < 0.05).

Conclusion

Although not sufficiently proved to be significantly superior to ACDF, the surgical experience of CDA concerning the technique practice, specific indications, limitations, complications and postoperative outcome including the impact on ASDis, compared to the ACDF is not statistically differ, However, The gold standard, may ought to be included in the collective experience of any Others modern neurosurgical center.
