They were all contestants in the Motion Preservation Category on Monday night. So how did the panel judge these devices? Did the panel and voters consider the overall system design which would include the implant and the instruments? TSB must say that each contestant substantiated their product by claiming to preserve segmental stability and flexibility to prevent further degeneration at adjacent levels. So what makes one disc better than the other? Considering that there isn't much retrospective data comparing the use of one system versus another, how do we know which is the best? So in order to judge these products vis-a-vis a real democratic process, TSB wants our readers to let our readers know which products deserve recognition. After your comments, TSB will let you know the winners.
