    Sammanfattning : Background: Knowledge about how to interpret pain-analyzing tools such as the pain drawing test and the visual analog scale (VAS) in cervical spine patients are sparse; hence, they have never been validated for this subgroup of patients. The method of artificial disc replacement (ADR) has been developed as an alternative treatment to fusion surgery after decompression for cervical degenerative disc disease (DDD) with radiculopathy.

    Sammanfattning : Artificial disc replacement (ADR) was developed as an alternative to anterior fusion after decompression for cervical degenerative radiculopathy. By preserving motion, it was expected to prevent acceleration of adjacent segment pathology (ASP) associated with fusion, and lead to better clinical outcomes. LÄS MER
