The difference is clear
Simplify Cervical Disc is the only cTDR to achieve clinical superiority at primary endpoints for 1- and 2-levels compared to anterior cervical disectomy and fusion (ACDF). 2
Simplify Cervical Disc is designed to fit patient anatomy, protect facets, and prevent overstuffing. It is designed for enhanced visualization through magnetic resonsance imaging (MRI).3
Anatomic disc heights
Simplify Cervical Disc features the lowest available disc heights, starting at 4mm, to better match patient anatomies and protect facet joints.
Simplify Cervical Disc’s PEEK endplates and ceramic core permit detailed anatomic visualization on MR imaging3 postoperatively.
Simplify Cervical Disc’s unique biconvex, dual articulation allows for pure translation, coupled motion patterns and a variable center of rotation.
The results are clear
Simplify Cervical Disc has the highest overall clinical success rate for both 1 and 2-levels compared to any approved cervical disc.1
Simplify Disc was approved for 1-level use in September 2020 and achieved superiority to fusion with an overall success rate of 93.0% versus 73.6%. The 2-level approval was received in April 2021 and the Simplify Disc was again superior to ACDF- 86.7% versus 77.1%.2
Simplify Cervical Disc offers nickel-free materials and metal-free articulating surfaces, significantly minimizing the risk of metal-wear debris.
Simplify Cervical Disc, offered in 12 size combinations, is designed to prevent core expulsion and achieve vertebral fixation.
Superior clinical results
Simplify Cervical Disc achieved superiority to fusion with an overall success rate of 93.0% and a 15-point NDI improvement. 2
