N2 - The early clinical results with the Bryan Cervical Disc prosthesis are encouraging but 2 recent small published series have noted postoperative radiologic kyphosis of the functional spinal unit (FSU) of 4 and 6 degrees. The current study was undertaken to accurately assess the extent of any sagittal deformity after the use of this prosthesis in a substantial, multisurgeon case series. The neutral, erect x-rays of 67 consecutive patients (88 disc levels) operated by one of 3 surgeons, were examined using manual and digital image analysis techniques for FSU sagittal angulation (lordosis), prosthesis shell angulation, segmental olisthesis, and overall cervical alignment. Measurement accuracy was confirmed using interobserver and intraobserver studies. There was a median loss of 2 degrees in FSU lordosis when compared with preoperative imagine (P
