Brief Summary:
The purpose of this pilot clinical trial is to evaluate the feasibility of using the investigational implant (INFUSE® Bone Graft and MASTERGRAFT® Granules with the CD HORIZON® Spinal System) as a method of facilitating spinal fusion in patients with symptomatic degenerative disc disease.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: rhBMP-2 / ACS Device: INFUSE® Bone Graft/MASTERGRAFT® Granules/CD HORIZON®
The INFUSE® Bone Graft component of the investigational device consists of recombinant human Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2(rhBMP-2) and an absorbable collagen sponge (ACS)carrier. The MASTERGRAFT® Granules will be used as a type of bulking agent to provide compression resistance.
Other Names:
  • Infused Bone Graft
  • MasterGraft

Active Comparator: Autogenous bone Device: Autogenous Bone / CD HORIZON® Spinal System
The control will be autogenous bone taken from the iliac crest of the patient and placed bilaterally across two adjacent transverse processes and used in conjunction with the CD HORIZON® Spinal System.
Other Name: Autograft

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Overall Success [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

    A patient will be considered an overall success if all of the following conditions are met:

    1. Fusion;
    2. Postoperative Oswestry score improvement of at least 15% from preoperative;
    3. Maintenance or improvement in neurological status;
    4. No serious adverse event classified as implant associated or implant surgical procedure associated;
    5. No additional surgical procedure classified as a "failure".

Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. General Health Status (SF-36) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  2. Pain Status (back pain, leg pain) [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  3. Patient Satisfaction [ Time Frame: 24 months ]
  4. Patient Global Perceived Effect [ Time Frame: 24 months ]

Sexes Eligible for Study:   All
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  1. Has degenerative disc disease as noted by back pain of discogenic origin, with or without leg pain, with degeneration of the disc confirmed by patient history (e.g., pain [leg, back, or symptoms in the sciatic nerve distribution], functional deficit and/or neurological deficit) and radiographic studies (e.g.,C T, MRl, X-Ray,etc.) to include one or more of the following:

    • instability (defined as angulation ≥ 5° and/or translation ≥ 4mm,based on flexion/extension radiographs);
    • osteophyte formation;
    • decreased disc height;
    • thickening of ligamentous tissue;
    • disc degeneration or herniation; and/or
    • facet joint degeneration.
  2. Has preoperative Oswestry score ≥ 30.
  3. Has no greater than Grade 1 spondylolisthesis utilizing Meyerding's Classification (Meyerding HW,1932).
  4. Requires fusion of a single level disc space from L1 to S1.
  5. Is at least 18 years of age, inclusive, at the time of surgery.
  6. Has not responded to non-operative treatment (e.g., bed rest, physical therapy, medications, spinal injections, manipulation, and/or TENS) for a period of 6 months.
  7. If of child-bearing potential, patient is non-pregnant,non-nursing,and agrees to use adequate contraception for 1 year following surgery.
  8. Is willing and able to comply with the study plan and sign the Patient Informed Consent Form.

Exclusion Criteria:

  1. Has primary diagnosis of a spinal disorder other than degenerative disc disease with Grade 1 or less spondylolisthesis at the involved level.
  2. Had previous spinal fusion surgical procedure at the involved level or an adjacent level.
  3. Requires spinal fusion at more than one lumbar level.
  4. Has a condition which requires postoperative medications that interfere with fusion, such as steroids or prolonged use of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. This does not include low dose aspirin for prophylactic anticoagulation.
  5. Has a documented history of osteopenia or osteomalacia.
  6. Has any of the following that may be associated with diagnosis of osteoporosis (if "Yes" to any of the below risk factors,a dual x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan will be required to determine eligibility.)
