The PCM Cervical Disc is indicated for use in skeletally mature patients for reconstruction of a degenerated cervical disc at one level from C3-C4 to C6-C7 following single level discectomy for intractable radiculopathy (arm pain and/or a neurological deficit), with or without neck pain, or myelopathy due to a single-level abnormality localized to the disc space and manifested by at least one of the following conditions confirmed by radiographic imaging (CT, MRI, X-rays): herniated nucleus pulposus, spondylosis (defined by the presence of osteophytes), and/or visible loss of disc height as compared to adjacent levels. The device is implanted using an anterior approach.
The PCM Cervical Disc is composed of cobalt chrome endplates and a central polyethylene core, materials that have a long and well-studied history of use in other orthopedic joint replacements. The broad radius of the polyethylene core allows for unconstrained motion preservation and a broad radius of articulation for coupled motion.The device features a wide footprint to take advantage of the most stable portions of patients' cervical vertebral bodies and offers three different footprint and height options. The superior and inferior endplates also feature three rows of "V-Teeth" which provide short-term fixation until long-term fixation can occur to anchor our motion preserving device.
