A Comprehensive Review of Dorsal Spinal Fusion Surgery Procedures using Selective Cell Retention Technique
Sponsor: Depuy Spine Inc.
Subjects: 150

A retrospective study on subjects who have undergone spine fusion surgery using the Selective Cell Retention (Cellect System) technique with allograft bone (Cell 25) by the study investigator. This study includes patients who have undergone surgery in the cervical, thoracic, and lumbar spines. The standard operative technique includes removal of dorsal bone during the decompressive procedure of the surgery. This bone is cleaned of all soft tissue and combined with allograft bone (Cell 25). Iliac autologous bone marrow aspirate is obtained using the Cellect system, and after processing, this material is combined with the previously obtained local exposed dorsal bone, generous quantities of this fusion substrate mixture are packed over the decorticated bone as part of a fusion procedure. This study will review the results, of the cases where selective cell retention technique has been utilized based on success rates of instrumentation placement and radiographic fusion rates, clinical outcomes based on functional status, pain status, return to work and/or activities of daily living, and patient satisfaction. The purpose is to create a knowledge base on this technique, present in a national meeting and publish. This study will also provide a quality assurance and outcome analysis work.

A Multicenter Controlled Trial Comparing Dorsal to Ventral Surgery for Cervical Spondylotic Myelopathy.
Sponsor: Wallace Clinical Trials Center
Subjects: 20

A prospective, non-randomized multicenter trial. There are no established guidelines for the management of patients with CSM. It remains uncertain how dorsal and ventral approaches differ in their success rates and in their complication rates. This study aims to test the hypothesis that ventral and dorsal surgical approaches differ in their outcomes or
major complication rates. A secondary hypothesis is that fusion might improve outcome by reducing repetitive shear injury to the spinal cord. Subjects are consented and enrolled after inclusion and exclusion criteria are met.. Questionnaires are administered before surgery, 3 months, 6 months, 1 year and 2 years after surgery. Follow-up x-rays are performed 1-2 days post –op , 3 months, 6 months, 1 year, and 2 years after surgery.

A Multi-Center,Prospective, Controlled Trial Comparing Cervical Arthroplasty to Anterior Cervical Discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) for the treatment of Cervical Degenerative Disc Disease
Sponsor: DePuy Spine, Inc.
Subjects: 20

Subjects receive either a cortical or corticopcancellous allograft spacer with a SLIM Loc anterior cervical plate (control group) or an artificial cervical disc( investigational group). Subjects are randomized 1:1. The purpose of the study is to determine the safety and effectiveness of the DISCOVER artificial Cervical Disc in the treatment of degenerative disc disease in one level in the cervical spine. Data from 24 month follow-up will be submitted as pivotal data in support of a Pre-Markrt Approval Application. Primary endpoint is success as determined by clinical outcome measures. These include, improvement in NDI and neurological function as well as no device- related serious adverse events and no subsequent secondary surgical interventions. All subjects are followed for a period of 5 years.


A Retrospective ( Medical Charts) Review of Patients Treated With Thoracic Pedicle Screws Instrumentation.
Sponsor: Depuy Spine, Inc
Subjects: 83

This study is a single site data collection review of qualified subjects where stabilization of the spine was accomplished by the use of Thoracic Pedicle Screws. Results and conclusions regarding the surgical and clinical outcomes of these subjects will be submitted as an Abstract, Manuscript, Poster Presentation, Podium Presentation and Journal Article. Follow-up data includes, rate of complications, rate of pseudoarthrosis, instrumentation failure, medication usuage, neurological deficits/clinical status, need for additional surgery and fusion rates.


A Retrospective ( Medical Chart) Review of Patients with Stackable Carbon Fiber Cages for Anterior ThoracolumbarInterbody Fusion
Sponsor: Depuy Spine, Inc.
Subjects: 37

This study is a single site data collection review of qualified subjects where stackable carbon fiber cages were used to reconstruct the thoracolumbar spine following corpectomy. The purpose of this study is to analysis the clinical and radiological outcome of these cages in thoracolumbar interbody fusion in terms of rate of fusion, failure rate, complications and the percent of vertebral body coverage achieved by the system. These results will be submitted as an Abstract, Manuscript, Poster Presentation, Podium Presentation and Journal Article.


A Retrospective( Medical Charts) Review of Patients Treated with Posterior Cervical Screw Rod Fixation
Sponsor: Depuy Spine, Inc
Subjects: 75

This study is a single site data collection review of qualified subjects whose reconstruction of the cervical and occipitocervical junction involved the use of the Summit System. Results of the research will be submitted in the form of a Abstract, Manuscript, Poster Presentation, Podium Presentation and Journal publication. Study results include rate of complication, rate of pseudoarthrosis, instrumentation failure, medication usage, neurological deficits, clinical status, additional surgery and fusion rates.


An Assessment of P-15 Bone Putty in Anterior Cervical Fusion with Instrumentation
Sponsor: CeraPedics, LLC
Subjects: 20

This study is multi-center single (patient) –blinded randomized controlled trial. There are two treatment groups, the investigational group and the active control group. Both groups are treated with anterior cervical discectomy and instrumented fusion. In the investigational group, fusion includes placement of a structural allograft ring with the central cavity filled with P-15 bone putty. ( investigational device). Fusion in the control group includes placement of a structural allograft ring with the central cavity filled in with local autologous bone from millings and osteophytes. The trial will test three primary non-inferiority statistical hypotheses and one primary superiority hypothesis about the differences between the investigational and the active control group. Subjects will be followed for 2 year for clinical and radiological outcomes.

Bengal Stackable Graft Volume Study (completed)
Sponsor: Depuy Spine, Inc.

The research project objectively quantified, evaluated and compared the volumetric capacity of bone graft material placed inside the Bengal design versus the allograft bone. Test were performed on three different sizes of the Bengal cages, including standard, large and x-large footprints in 20mm,40mm and 60mm which are representative of 1, 2, and 3 level corpectomies respectively.
InVitro Assessment of the Effect of Annular Resection on the FSU Expulsion Force Migration Range of Motion and Wear Properties for the Charite Artificial Disc
Sponsor: DePuy Spine, Inc

The research will assess the biomechanical performance of the effects of annular resection on the migration and or expulsion resistance forces of the Charite artificial disc. The research will assess the range of motion for cadaver spines implanted with the Charite artificial disc.
