Florida Orthopaedic Institute is one of multiple study sites in the Centinel Spine, LLC, Multicenter, Prospective, Randomized Controlled Trial Comparing the Safety and Effectiveness of prodisc® C SK and prodisc® C Vivo to the Mobi-C® Cervical Disc in the Treatment of Two-Level Symptomatic Cervical Disc Disease (SCDD).
The prodisc products being used in the trial are built on the prodisc technology platform, the most widely used Total Disc Replacement system in the world. No other disc replacement system has been studied more—with over 13,000 patients reported on in more than 540 articles throughout a global clinical usage period of 30+ years. The prodisc technology has been validated with almost 225,000 device implantations and a reported reoperation rate of less than 1%. The prodisc C Vivo has been used outside the US for over 10 years, and the prodisc C SK device is an evolution of the original prodisc C, with a smaller keel design.
The Mobi-C (Zimmer Biomet) is FDA-approved for 1- and 2-level use. The prodisc systems are being investigated for approval by the FDA for 2-Level use.
Enrolled patients will be evaluated before surgery, as well as after surgery (2 and 6 weeks, 3-, 6-, 12- and 24 months)—with each visit taking approximately 1-2 hours. After the 2-year visit, patients return annually for follow-up visits for 5 years. Approximately 20 patients will be included in the study at Florida Orthopaedic Institute, with a minimum of 390 in the study overall. Patients with appropriate indications should review their condition with their doctor to determine if involvement in the clinical trial is appropriate.
