Default 2015 Texas A&M study on ADR failure modes

In researching whether I want Prodisc, ESP or other devices, I found the linked article. Not sure if it has been posted here before; a search did not drag it up for me. My takeaway is that the authors like the one-piece devices like the ESP, though they describe it as needing more clinical data.
Age 56
Severe neck and back pain, 10 years+ on opiate pain meds every 4 hours, numbness and weakness in both arms and legs.
Evaluated by Dr Bertagnoli for ProDisc at L3L4, L4L5, L5S1, C5C6 and C6C7

Sept 4th, 2019: Completed 3 level CP-ESP at C4 thru C7 with Dr. Biren Desai in Cologne, Germany

Scheduled for March 11, 2020: L3 thru S1 LP-ESP with Dr Clavel in Barcelona
