Background. The authors present their own experiences with disc prosthesis procedures in the lumbar and cervical spine.
Material and methods. The article presents an analysis of post op results in a series of 24 patients who underwent disc replacement surgery in the lumbar spine and 11 patients in whom a disc endoprosthesis was performed in the cervical spine. Average follow-up was 9.2 months. The authors paid particular attention to the pre-op and post-op patient symptoms. Functional assessment of the patients was performed with the Oswestry Low Back Pain Disability Index.
Results and Conclusions. The obtained results seem to indicate that this procedure can yield excellent results in selected cases. The key to obtaining a good post-op result is careful selection of patients with „pure” discogenic low back pain.
