  • [Title] A new device used in the restoration of kinematics after total facet arthroplasty.
  • Facet degeneration can lead to spinal stenosis and instability, and often requires stabilization.
  • Dynamic posterior stabilization was performed using a total facet arthroplasty system.
  • The total facet arthroplasty system was originally intended to restore the natural motion of the posterior stabilizers, but follow-up studies are lacking due to limited clinical use.
  • The total facet arthroplasty system represents a viable option for dynamic posterior stabilization after spinal decompression.

  • [Title] Biomechanical evaluation of the Total Facet Arthroplasty System® (TFAS®): loading as compared to a rigid posterior instrumentation system.
  • PURPOSE: To gain insight into a new technology, a novel facet arthroplasty device (TFAS) was compared to a rigid posterior fixation system (UCR).
  • The long-term physiological meaning of these findings is unknown and demonstrates the need for a better understanding of the relationship between spinal arthroplasty devices and the host tissue as development of next generation motion-preserving posterior devices that hope to more accurately replicate the natural functions of the native tissue continues.

  • [Title] Effect of multilevel lumbar disc arthroplasty on spine kinematics and facet joint loads in flexion and extension: a finite element analysis.
  • Total disc arthroplasty (TDA) has been successfully used for monosegmental treatment in the last few years.
  • (1) the more artificial discs are implanted, the stronger the increases in spinal mobility and facet joint forces in flexion and extension;.
  • For central implant positions and the loading case extension, a motion increase of 51% for two implants up to 91% for four implants and a facet force increase of 24% for two implants up to 38% for four implants compared to the intact spine were calculated.
  • Deviations from the optimal implant position lead to unfavourable kinematics, to high facet joint forces and even to lift-off phenomena.

  • [Title] The effect of different design concepts in lumbar total disc arthroplasty on the range of motion, facet joint forces and instantaneous center of rotation of a L4-5 segment.
  • Although both unconstrained and constrained core lumbar artificial disc designs are in clinical use, the effect of their design on the range of motion, center of rotations, and facet joint forces is not well understood.
  • It is assumed that the constrained configuration causes a fixed center of rotation with high facet forces, while the unconstrained configuration leads to a moving center of rotation with lower loaded facets.
  • The models predicted higher facet forces for the implants with an unconstrained core compared to an implant with a constrained core.
  • In contrast, facet forces appeared to be strongly dependent on the implant design.
  • However, due to the great variability in facet forces reported in the literature, together with our results, we could speculate that these forces may be more dependent on the individual spine geometry rather than a specific implant design.

  • [Title] Stem fracture after total facet replacement in the lumbar spine: a report of two cases and review of the literature.
  • BACKGROUND CONTEXT: A randomized controlled multicenter investigational device exemption clinical trial comparing the total facet arthroplasty system (TFAS) (Archus Orthopedics, Redmond, WA, USA) with posterior fusion was discontinued because of financial reasons.
  • To our knowledge, no clinical outcomes or complications have yet been presented for the TFAS, and no device-related complications have been reported for any other lumbar facet replacement system.
  • PURPOSE: To report and discuss two cases of stem fracture after total facet replacement in the lumbar spine.
  • PATIENT SAMPLE: A 55-year-old man with a body mass index (BMI) of 40 underwent total facet replacement at L4-L5 for Grade 1 spondylolisthesis with stenosis.
  • A 60-year-old woman with a BMI of 31 underwent total facet replacement at L4-L5 for Grade 1 spondylolisthesis with stenosis.
  • CONCLUSIONS: These are the first cases of stem fracture reported after total facet replacement in the lumbar spine.

  • [Title] Facet joint contact pressure is not significantly affected by ProDisc cervical disc arthroplasty in sagittal bending: a single-level cadaveric study.
  • BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Total disc arthroplasty is a motion-preserving spinal procedure that has been investigated for its impact on spinal motions and adjacent-level degeneration.
  • However, the effects of disc arthroplasty on facet joint biomechanics remain undefined despite the critical role of these posterior elements on guiding and limiting spinal motion.
  • PURPOSE: The goal was to measure the pressure in the facet joint in cadaveric human cervical spines subjected to sagittal bending before and after implantation of the ProDisc-C (Synthes Spine Company, L.P, West Chester, PA, USA).
  • METHODS: Seven C2-T1 osteoligamentous cadaveric cervical spines were instrumented with a transducer to measure the C5-C6 facet pressure profiles during physiological sagittal bending, before and after implantation of a ProDisc-C at that level.
  • However, despite such changes in rotation, there was no significant difference in the facet contact pressure during extension between the intact (64±30 kPa) and implanted (44±55 kPa) conditions.
  • Similarly, there was no difference in facet pressure developed during flexion.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Although implantation of a ProDisc-C arthroplasty device at the C5-C6 level increases angular rotations, it does not significantly alter the local facet pressure at the index level in flexion or extension.
  • Using a technique that preserves the capsular ligament, this study provides the first direct measurement of cervical facet pressure in a disc arthroplasty condition.

  • [Title] ProDisc cervical arthroplasty does not alter facet joint contact pressure during lateral bending or axial torsion.
  • STUDY DESIGN: A biomechanical study of facet joint pressure after total disc replacement using cadaveric human cervical spines during lateral bending and axial torsion.
  • OBJECTIVE: The goal was to measure the contact pressure in the facet joint in cadaveric human cervical spines subjected to physiologic lateral bending and axial torsion before and after implantation of a ProDisc-C implant.
  • SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: Changes in facet biomechanics can damage the articular cartilage in the joint, potentially leading to degeneration and painful arthritis.
  • Few cadaveric and computational studies have evaluated the changes in facet joint loading during spinal loading with an artificial disc implanted.
  • Computational models have predicted that the design and placement of the implant influence facet joint loading, but limited cadaveric studies document changes in facet forces and pressures during nonsagittal bending after implantation of a ProDisc.
  • As such, little is known about the local facet joint mechanics for these complicated loading scenarios in the cervical spine.
  • METHODS: Seven osteoligamentous C2-T1 cadaveric cervical spines were instrumented with a transducer to measure the C5-C6 facet pressure profiles during physiological lateral bending and axial torsion, before and after implantation of a ProDisc-C at that level.
  • Facet contact pressure increased after implantation during ipsilateral lateral bending and contralateral torsion, but that increase was not significant compared with the intact condition.
  • CONCLUSION: Implantation of a ProDisc-C does not significantly modify the kinematics and facet pressure at the index level in cadaveric specimens during lateral bending and axial torsion.
  • However, changes in facet contact pressures after disc arthroplasty may have long-term effects on spinal loading and cartilage degeneration and should be monitored in vivo.

  • [Title] Biomechanical comparison of lumbar total disc arthroplasty, discectomy, and fusion: effect on adjacent-level disc pressure and facet joint force.
  • OBJECT: With the increasing advocacy for total disc replacement (TDR) as a potential alternative to fusion in the management of lumbar degenerative disc disease, intradiscal pressures (IDPs) and facet joint stresses at the adjacent levels of spine have generated considerable interest.
  • The purpose of this study was to compare adjacent-level IDPs and facet joint stresses among TDR, discectomy, and fusion.
  • During testing, the IDPs and facet forces following each treatment were calculated at the adjacent vertebral levels (L3-4 and L5-S1).
  • RESULTS: Intradiscal pressures and facet force pressures were similar between the intact condition and the TDR reconstruction at the L3-4 and L5-S1 levels under all loading conditions (p > 0.05).
  • No significant difference in the facet force pressure was noted among the intact, discectomy, and TDR groups at the L3-4 and L5-S1 levels under any loading conditions (p > 0.05).
  • However, the facet force pressure produced for fusion was significantly higher than the mean values obtained for the intact, discectomy, and TDR groups at the L3-4 and L5-S1 levels under all loading conditions (p < 0.05).
  • CONCLUSIONS: Lumbar TDR maintained adjacent-level IDPs and facet force pressures near the values for intact spines, whereas adjacent-level IDPs tended to increase after discectomy or fusion and facet forces tended to increase after fusion.

  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the ability of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) to predict the presence of cervical facet arthrosis.
  • SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: In the Food and Drug Administration Investigational Device Exemption trials of cervical disc arthroplasty (CDA), the presence of facet arthrosis on CT was a contraindication to the insertion of a CDA.
  • We sought to determine if the MRI alone is adequate to assess for the presence of facet arthrosis.
  • Reviewers graded each of the MRI and CT scan as normal or abnormal on 3 separate occasions and if the facet was abnormal, each reviewer graded the degree of arthrosis.
  • Furthermore, MRI was concordant only 15.9% of the time in patients with ankylosed facet joints on CT.
  • CT inter-rater reliability showed substantial agreement for diagnoses of both normal and ankylosis and fair agreement for lesser degrees of facet arthrosis.
  • MRI inter-rater reliability showed fair/moderate agreement in normal and ankylosed segments and only slight agreement with lesser degrees of facet arthrosis.
  • CONCLUSION: The ability of MRI to adequately determine the presence or amount of facet arthrosis is not reliable.
  • Our data suggest that computed tomography remains necessary in diagnosing facet arthrosis before CDA.

  • The mean angle of lordosis and the facet joint space increased by a statistically significant extent (p < 0.005 and p = 0.006, respectively).
  • By contrast, the mean facet joint overlap was significantly reduced (p < 0.001).
  • Our study indicates that the increase in the intervertebral disc height after disc replacement changes the geometry at the facet joints.

  • OBJECT: The goal of this study was to evaluate and compare load sharing of the facet and uncovertebral joints after total cervical disc arthroplasty using 3 different implant designs.
  • METHODS: Three-dimensional voxel finite element models were built for the C5-6 spine unit based on CT images acquired from a candidate patient for cervical disc arthroplasty.
  • Models of facet and uncovertebral joints were added and artificial discs were placed in the intervertebral disc space.
  • RESULTS: The Bryan disc imposed the greatest average stress and SED levels at facet and uncovertebral joints with flexion-extension and lateral bending, while the ProDisc-C and Prestige LP discs transferred less load due to their rigid cores.
  • With respect to the 3 artificial discs studied, load sharing of the Bryan disc was highest and was closest to normal load sharing with the facet and uncovertebral joints.
  • The Prestige LP and ProDisc-C carried more load through their rigid core, resulting in decreased load transmission to the facet and uncovertebral joints.

  • [Title] Patellar morphology and femoral component geometry influence patellofemoral contact stress in total knee arthroplasty without patellar resurfacing.
  • PURPOSE: The objective of this study was to determine the effect of patellar morphology and implant design on patellofemoral contact stress in total knee arthroplasty (TKA) without patellar resurfacing.
  • The relationship between the pre-operative patellar facet angle and newly identified post-operative osteosclerosis was assessed.
  • Finite element analysis: Using patient-specific patellar three-dimensional finite element models, the relationship between the patellar facet angle and mean von Mises stress within the patella was calculated at flexion angles of 15°, 45°, 75° and 105°.
  • RESULTS: Radiographic investigation: Post-operative osteosclerosis was observed with decreasing patellar facet angle in the Genesis II (odds ratio = 0.72; 95% confidence interval, 0.55-0.93; P = 0.012) and NexGen implants (odds ratio = 0.87; 95% confidence interval, 0.77-0.99; P = 0.029).
  • Finite element analysis: A negative correlation was found between the patellar facet angle and the mean von Mises stress for all three implants.
  • CONCLUSIONS: Both patellar morphology and femoral component geometry influence patellofemoral contact stress in total knee arthroplasty without patellar resurfacing.

  • [Title] Radiological changes of the operated and adjacent segments following cervical arthroplasty after a minimum 24-month follow-up: comparison between the Bryan and Prodisc-C devices.
  • OBJECT: The purposes of this retrospective study were to determine the radiological changes at the index and adjacent levels after cervical arthroplasty using the Bryan disc and Prodisc-C disc after a minimum 24 months follow-up, and to demonstrate the possible clinical factors related to these changes.
  • METHODS: Following single-level cervical arthroplasty using either the Bryan disc or Prodisc-C, the degree of facet degeneration and other radiological changes at the index and adjacent levels were assessed by observing radiographs and CT scans at a minimum 24 months after the operations.
  • RESULTS: At the index level, progression of facet arthrosis (PFA) was observed in 7 of 36 levels (1 level with the Bryan disc, 6 with the Prodisc-C).
  • Progression of facet arthrosis at the index segments was positively related to malposition of the prosthesis on the frontal plane, and decreased postoperative functional spinal unit range of motion at the index level.
  • Progression of facet arthrosis is related to less functional spinal unit range of motion and anterior placement of the prosthesis.

  • STUDY DESIGN: This in vitro analysis defines biomechanical properties of the Triumph Lumbar Disc (TLD) for posterolateral lumbar disc arthroplasty.
  • SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: As an alternative to arthrodesis, total disc arthroplasty serves to restore the biomechanical properties of the spine.
  • RESULTS: In axial rotation, L4-L5 range of motion (ROM) increased to 110%+/-15.3% following unilateral facetectomy and 134.3%+/-26.9% following facet/discectomy.
  • The neutral zone increased under the facet/discectomy condition and TLD reconstructions compared to the intact condition (P<0.05).
  • This indicates that lumbar disc arthroplasty performed using a posterolateral approach may offer biomechanical advantages over the anterior approach.

  • [Title] Biomechanical comparison between lumbar disc arthroplasty and fusion.
  • The ADR model demonstrated higher range of motion (ROM), annulus stress, and facet contact pressure at the surgical level compared to the non-modified INT model.
  • Conversely, the PLIF model showed less ROM, less annulus stress, and no facet contact pressure at the surgical level compared to the INT model.
  • The adjacent levels had obviously high ROM, annulus stress, and facet contact pressure, especially at the adjacent L2/3 level.
  • However, instability was found at the surgical level, which might accelerate degeneration at the highly stressed annulus and facet joint.
  • In contrast to disc replacement results, the posterior interbody fusion procedure revealed possibly accelerative degeneration of the annulus and facet joint at both adjacent levels.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • DISCUSSION: The unicompartmental Oxford Phase III knee replacement substitutes a flexion femoral facet and eliminates the role of an extension femoral facet.
  • This is the reason why, at knee extension between -5° and +20°, the centre of rotation of the medial femoral condyle is in the centre of the flexion facet and not in that of the extension facet.
  • When the stabilising functions of the extension tibial facet in the ventral direction and of the dorsal part of the insert in the dorsal direction are missing, the position of the contact surface centre becomes much dependent also on the strength and direction of external forces acting in the knee joint vicinity.
  • However, neither the magnitude nor the direction of movement had any effect on the clinical outcome of knee arthroplasty.

  • METHODS: Three-dimensional voxel finite elements were built for C5-C6 spine unit based on computed tomography images acquired from a patient with indication for cervical disc arthroplasty.
  • Models of facet joints and uncovertebral joints were added and artificial disc designs were placed in the intervertebral disc space.
  • Although Bryan disc differs in these 2 concerns, it also creates much larger displacement during motion with more variation in disc height that may theoretically increase the load sharing of facet and/or uncovertebral joints compared to more rigid artificial discs.

  • The aim of the study was to determine in a probabilistic finite element study how intervertebral rotation, intradiscal pressure, and contact force in the facet joints are affected by the input parameters implant position, implant ball radius, presence of scar tissue, and gap size in the facet joints.
  • In a probabilistic study the implant position in anterior-posterior (ap) and in lateral direction, the radius of the implant ball, and the gap size of the facet joint were varied.
  • For each loading case studied, intervertebral rotations, intradiscal pressures and contact forces in the facet joints were calculated for 1,000 randomized input parameter combinations in order to determine the probable range of these output parameters.
  • Contact forces in the facet joints at implant level vary strongly for the different combinations of the input parameters.
  • Intervertebral rotation and contact force in the facet joints depend strongly on the input parameters studied.
  • Clinical studies will be required to show whether or not there is a strong correlation of parameter combinations that cause high facet joint forces and low back pain after total disc replacement.

  • The range of segmental motion (ROM), facet joint force, tension on major ligaments, and stress on the polyethylene (PE) cores were analyzed.
  • The facet joint force increased by 210% in both fixed and mobile core models during extension and the tension increased (range, 66%-166%) in all ligaments during flexion.
  • CONCLUSION: The results of our study presented an increase in ROM, facet joint force, and ligament tension at the ADR segments.
  • The mobile-core model showed a higher increase in segmental motion, facet force, and ligament tension, but lower stress on the PE core than the fixed-core model.

  • [Source] The source of this record is MEDLINE®, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
  • METHODS: A validated finite element model of the lumbosacral spine was used to compare the results of total disc arthroplasty at level L4/L5 performed by simulating the kinematics of three established artificial disc prostheses (Charité, ProDisc, Activ L).
  • For flexion, extension, lateral bending, and axial torsion, the intervertebral rotations, the locations of the helical axes of rotation, the intradiscal pressures, and the facet joint forces were evaluated at the operated and adjacent levels.
  • Increased facet joint contact forces are predicted for the Charité disc during extension-- influenced by the existence of anterior scar tissue--and for the ProDisc and the Activ L during lateral bending and axial torsion.
  • INTERPRETATIONS: For some load cases, total disc arthroplasty leads to considerably altered kinematics and increased facet joint contact forces at implant level.
  • The spinal kinematic alterations due to an artificial disc exceed by far the inter-implant differences, while facet joint contact force alterations are strongly implant and load case dependent.
