Abstract
Although ceramic fractures have been reported following
total hip arthroplasty1-6, with an incidence ranging from
0.004% to 1.4%1-3, no cases of ceramic fracture following
cervical disc arthroplasty have been reported, to our
knowledge. We present the case of a patient with cervical radiculopathy
who underwent total disc replacement at C5-C6
and C6-C7, which was complicated by the development of
recurrent symptoms approximately one month after the index
procedure. At the time of the revision surgery, the ceramic
insert at the C6-C7 level was found to be fractured on its convex
cranial side. The implant used was a semiconstrained ceramicon-
ceramic prosthesis (Discocerv Cervidisc Evolution; Scientx,
Guyancourt, France). Since the introduction of this
prosthesis in April 20067, more than 2000 prostheses have
been implanted. The patient was informed that data concerning
the case would be submitted for publication, and he
gave his consent.
