The CP-ESP® cervical disc is a monobloc prosthesis comprising titanium end plates with an elastomeric inner cushion.
Each endplate features spikes on its outer surface to improve primary fixation, and are covered with a hydroxyapatite coating on top of a T40 rough surface which is considered optimal to encourage fusion. The inner shock absorbing core is manufactured from polycarbonate urethane.
Originally developed by Professor Roy Camille to restore the natural movement of the disc, the CP-ESP® disc took over a decade to develop. The disc allows six degrees of freedom and with its adaptive centre of rotation is easy to implant. The unique manufacturing process mitigates against any possibility of wear debris, and there is no surface bearing for increased performance and longevity.
Developed after the LP-ESP® lumbar disc, the CP-ESP® disc still benefits from two years of follow up data.
