The article presents a research study on the mechanical and biological evaluation of the artificial spinal disc to ascertain implant durability and long-term use of prostheses. The study identifies the wear features of an articulating cervical disc replacement within eight years of simulated function. The result of the study helps in establishing the safety and effectiveness of the artificial cervical disc.
