Dr. Guyer presents a study that takes the measurement data from the single level and 2 level Simplify CTDR IDE trials to determine the size of disc height utilized. We found almost 40% of single level TDRs and and 54% of 2 level TDRs were the 4mm discs which is smaller than other CTDRs available and may have implications on outcomes.
