Prostheses, Intervertebral Disk, Partial
Definition : Prostheses designed for partial replacement of the intervertebral disk, typically to replace the pulpy center (i.e., nucleus) of the disk. These prostheses are available in several different configurations and materials, according to the extension of the replacement to be performed. Partial intervertebral disk prostheses are used mainly in early or intermediate degenerative disk disease (DDD), frequently as an alternative to spinal fusion surgery. Some partial prostheses may be implanted using minimally invasive surgery (i.e., endoscopic procedures).
