We’re pleased to report that Dr. Fransen’s BAGUERA® C Experience talk, at the Hotel Du Vin, was well-attended. The take-home message was as follows: Cervical disc replacement with the BAGUERA® C prosthesis has an excellent record in terms of safety, clinical results and long term motion preservation. There was no index or adjacent level reoperation after 5 years. Radiological progression of adjacent level degeneration was seen in a significant minority of cases, but without clinical expression.
