Abstract

The purpose of this study is to compare postoperative imaging characteristics of the four currently available cervical arthroplasty devices at the level of implantation and at adjacent levels.

Pre-and postoperative magnetic resonance imaging scans of 20 patients who had cervical arthroplasty were assessed for quality. Five cases each of the Bryan, Prodisc-C, Prestige LP, and PCM devices were analyzed. Sagittal and axial T2-weighted images were scored using the Jarvik 4-point scale from 8 blinded surgeons and statistically analysed. A P value of less than 0.05 was regarded as significant.
