Improved preservation of function during acoustic neuroma surgery

Outcomes after vestibular schwannoma surgery can be improved by avoiding irreversible injury, such as crush and thermal injury, and by maximizing the recuperation period after reversible injury, such as traction injury, through use of the extended recuperation treatment strategy.

Two-level total disc replacement with Mobi-C cervical artificial disc versus anterior discectomy and fusion: a prospective, randomized, controlled multicenter clinical trial with 4-year follow-up results

The data from this investigational device exemption (IDE )study through 48 months signify a number of clinically relevant benefits for total disc replacement (TDR) over anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). Patients experienced improved clinical outcomes with TDR—including improvement in pain and function outcomes and superiority in overall primary endpoint success.
Additionally, incidences of adjacent-segment degeneration
and subsequent surgeries were reduced with TDR.
We expect that future studies and also longer-term followup
of this patient cohort may continue to establish 2-level
cervical TDR as a superior surgical option for symptomatic
degenerative disc disease.
