The ayers rock cages are indicated for intervertebral body fusion procedures in skeletally mature patients with degenerative disc disease (DDD) at one or two contiguous levels of the cervical spine with/without radicular symptoms from C2 to T1. DDD is defined as discogenic pain with degeneration of the disc confirmed by history and radiographic studies.
The ayers rock cages are to be used with either autogenous bone graft or bone substitute, as well as with supplemental fixation systems for the cervical spine.
Patients should be skeletally mature and have at least six weeks of non-operative treatment.
