Ranier Technology has announced that clinical results from Cadisc elastomimetic lumbar and cervical replacement disc implants will be presented by Brian Freeman, professor of Spinal Surgery at Adelaide University, Australia, at the upcoming Spineweek conference (Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 28 May – 1 June 2012).
The presentation titled “Next Generation Disc Replacements – much more than motion preservation” will be held on Wednesday 30 May at 12:15 in room G107.
Ranier’s Cadisc–L and Cadisc–C are designed to restore natural motion to the spine, to bear the complex loads encountered in the spine and to reduce patients’ pain.
The Cadisc–L treats degenerative disc disease of the lumbar spine. This product was CE-marked in 2010 following a successful European clinical study which showed significantly improved patient outcomes compared to alternative disc replacement treatments.
The Cadisc–C is a next generation intervertebral disc designed to restore height and functionality to degenerate discs in the cervical spine. It is an anatomically shaped, single piece, polycarbonate polyurethane implant with no articulating surfaces and has material properties, including a graduated modulus, which aim to mimic the biomechanical properties of the natural cervical disc.
