NCT00882661
First received: April 14, 2009
Last updated: June 7, 2017

  Purpose

The purpose of the pivotal IDE clinical study was to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of the SECURE®-C Cervical Artificial Disc for the treatment of symptomatic cervical disc disease at one level between C3 and C7, compared to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion.

The purpose of the Postmarket Approval Study is to evaluate the long-term safety and efficacy associated with the use of the SECURE-C Cervical Artificial Disc

Symptomatic Cervical Disc Disease Device: SECURE-C Cervical Artificial Disc Device: ASSURE Cervical plate and an allograft interbody spacer

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Participant
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Prospective Randomized Clinical Investigation of the SECURE-C Cervical Artificial Disc: A Pivotal Study/ SECURE-C Cervical Artificial Disc Postmarket Approval Study

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Individual Patient Overall Success [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Individual patient overall success defined as pain/disability improvement of at least 25% in Neck Disability Index (NDI) compared to baseline; no device failures requiring revision, removal, reoperation, or supplemental fixation; absence of major complications defined as major vessel injury, neurological damage, or nerve injury; and for control fusion patients only, radiographic fusion


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Neck Disability Index (NDI) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Neck Disability Index (NDI) success defined as ≥25% improvement at 24 months from baseline

  • Neck Pain Visual Analog Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Improvement of 20mm from baseline in neck pain measured using the Visual Analog Scale (VAS)

  • Left Arm Pain Visual Analog Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Improvement of 20mm from baseline in left arm pain measured using the Visual Analog Scale (VAS)

  • Right Arm Pain Visual Analog Scale (VAS) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Improvement of 20mm from baseline in right arm pain measured using the Visual Analog Scale (VAS)

  • SF-36 PCS [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Health Status Survey SF-36 physical composite scores: 15% improvement from baseline

  • SF-36 MCS [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Health Status Survey SF-36 mental composite scores: 15% improvement from baseline

  • Satisfaction [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
    Patient satisfaction (definitely/mostly): proportion of patients
