Abstract
Disc prosthesis is the new treatment for degenerative disc disease in the lumbar spine. Key to assessing the interest in this new motion technique is evaluating the results in terms of functional and radiologic outcomes. This prospective study reports the outcome of 64 Maverick devices implanted between January 2002 and November 2003. The degree of improvement was equivalent to that obtained with anterior fusion cages using the mini-invasive technique. Radiographic follow-up in this series showed a degree of mobility close to normal. The technique is safe because the intra- and postoperative complication rate is low. The Oswestry score improved for 75% of patients. This improvement is significantly correlated with facet arthrosis and muscle fatty degeneration
