Anterior Cervical Disectomy And Fusion Using The Tritanium® C Anterior Cervical Cage For One Or Two-Levels

Study Purpose

This is a prospective, single arm clinical study to evaluate fusion status and patient reported outcomes utilizing the Stryker Tritanium® C Anterior Cervical interbody device at one or two contiguous levels. Subjects that are recommended for surgical treatment of either a 1- or 2-level ACDF (Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion) between the levels of Cervical Spine 2 to Thoracic 1 (C2-T1) and diagnosed with degenerative disc disease will be screened for the study.

Recruitment Criteria

Accepts Healthy Volunteers

Healthy volunteers are participants who do not have a disease or condition, or related conditions or symptoms

No
Study Type

An interventional clinical study is where participants are assigned to receive one or more interventions (or no intervention) so that researchers can evaluate the effects of the interventions on biomedical or health-related outcomes.


An observational clinical study is where participants identified as belonging to study groups are assessed for biomedical or health outcomes.


Searching Both is inclusive of interventional and observational studies.

Trial ID:

This trial id was obtained from ClinicalTrials.gov, a service of the U.S. National Institutes of Health, providing information on publicly and privately supported clinical studies of human participants with locations in all 50 States and in 196 countries.

NCT04214535
Phase

Phase 1: Studies that emphasize safety and how the drug is metabolized and excreted in humans.

Phase 2: Studies that gather preliminary data on effectiveness (whether the drug works in people who have a certain disease or condition) and additional safety data.

Phase 3: Studies that gather more information about safety and effectiveness by studying different populations and different dosages and by using the drug in combination with other drugs.

Phase 4: Studies occurring after FDA has approved a drug for marketing, efficacy, or optimal use.

Cervical Disc Herniation, Cervical Disc Degeneration, Degenerative Disc Disease
Additional Details

Degenerative disc disease of the cervical (neck) spine occurs when the discs between the vertebral bony bodies start to deteriorate or break down due to wear and tear over time. It is diagnosed as such once it is symptomatic and causes neck pain and radiculopathy (arm pain, weakness, and/or numbness). In order to correct the damaged disc and resolve radicular symptoms, anterior cervical discectomy and fusion surgery is commonly performed. This is a prospective, single arm clinical study to evaluate fusion status and patient reported outcomes utilizing the Stryker Tritanium® C Anterior Cervical interbody device at one or two contiguous levels. Subjects that are recommended for surgical treatment of either a 1- or 2-level ACDF (Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion) between the levels of C2-T1 and diagnosed with degenerative disc disease will be screened for the study. Subjects will be followed up postoperatively per standard of care at 6-weeks, 3-monts, 6-months, and 12-months at the private practice or hospital clinic. The primary end-point is Successful cervical spinal fusion as measured by dynamic (flexion and extension) x-rays and CT scan (using metal subtraction) at 12 months and as evidenced by the following three criteria: bony bridging, no presence of radiolucency, and no development of pseudoarthrosis at the treated cervical level.
