Tissue Engineering the Annulus Fibrosus Using 3D Rings of Electrospun PCL:PLLA Angle-Ply Nanofiber Sheets.

Front Bioeng Biotechnol 2019 14;7:437. Epub 2020 Jan 14.

Department of Materials, Faculty of Science and Engineering, The University of Manchester, Manchester, United Kingdom.

Treatments to alleviate chronic lower back pain, caused by intervertebral disc herniation as a consequence of degenerate annulus fibrosus (AF) tissue, fail to provide long-term relief and do not restore tissue structure or function. The future of AF tissue engineering relies on the production of its complex structure assisted by the many cells that are resident in the tissue. As such, this study aims to mimic the architecture and mechanical environment of outer AF tissue using electrospun fiber scaffolds made from a synthetic biopolymer blend of poly(ε-caprolactone) (PCL) and poly(L-lactic) acid (PLLA).

Biomechanical Analysis of the Cervical Spine Following Disc Degeneration, Disc Fusion, and Disc Replacement: A Finite Element Study.

Int J Spine Surg 2019 Dec 31;13(6):491-500. Epub 2019 Dec 31.

Department of Orthopaedics and Rehabilitation, University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics, The University of Iowa, Iowa City, Iowa.

Background: Discectomy and fusion is considered the "gold standard" treatment for clinical manifestations of degenerative disc disease in the cervical spine. However, clinical and biomechanical studies suggest that fusion may lead to adjacent-segment disease. Cervical disc arthroplasty preserves the motion at the operated level and may potentially decrease the occurrence of adjacent segment degeneration. Read More

Mayo Clinic Neuro-Informatics Laboratory, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA; Department of Neurologic Surgery, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, USA. Electronic address:

Background: There have been several clinical trials as well as observational studies that have compared the outcomes of different cervical disc replacement (CDR) devices with anterior cervical disc replacement and fusion (ACDF). Although the results of these studies have provided sufficient evidence for the safety of CDR, there is still a lack of consensus in terms of longer-term outcomes, with studies providing equivocal results for the 2 procedures. In the current study, we used a novel methodology, a meta-epidemiologic study, to investigate the impact of study characteristics on the observed effects in the literature on CDR and ACDF. Read More

Revision surgery of spinal dynamic implants: a literature review and algorithm proposal.

Eur Spine J 2020 Feb 8;29(Suppl 1):57-65. Epub 2020 Jan 8.

Orthopedic Spinal Surgery Unit 1, Pellegrin Hospital, Place Amélie Raba-Léon, 33076, Bordeaux Cedex, France.

Introduction: Dynamic stabilization of the spine has been performed since the 1990s with the double purpose of restoring spinal segmental stability and allowing residual movement at the operated level. When we take into account the different motion-preserving devices and the spinal areas where they are applied, we can identify three categories of spinal implants: anterior cervical, anterior lumbar, and posterior lumbar. However, as in all prosthetic procedures performed in orthopedic surgery, the life span of a joint replacement device is a central topic of discussion, and this is true also for spinal dynamic devices, being revision surgery a complex procedure in specific cases.
