BACKGROUND: In multilevel degenerative conditions posterior approaches are often preferred, but anterior approaches provide comparable clinical results and better alignment. Anterior plating entails higher rates of soft tissue injuries and dysphagia, particularly in multilevel cases. This study evaluates efficacy and safety of zero-profile devices in three and four-level ACDF, analyzing patients' clinical and radiological long-term outcome. METHODS: We prospectively enrolled 24 patients with cervical spondylotic myeloradiculopathy (CSM), who underwent three and four-level ACDF with Zero-P device...

Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is a common cause of neurologic impairment in adults worldwide. Numerous studies have investigated the pathophysiology of CSM, which has provided surgeons with insight on the important factors that lead to the symptoms and deficits observed in patients who have CSM. However, further analysis of many unknown aspects of CSM is required to fully understand the disease and potential alternative treatment modalities. The diagnosis of CSM is based on a patient's history and physical examination and then confirmed with imaging studies...

Diagnosis of nervous system disease is greatly aided by functional assessments and imaging techniques that localize neural activity abnormalities. Electrophysiological methods are helpful but often insufficient to locate neural lesions precisely. One proposed noninvasive alternative is magnetoneurography (MNG); we have developed MNG of the spinal cord (magnetospinography, MSG). Using a 120-channel superconducting quantum interference device biomagnetometer system in a magnetically shielded room, cervical spinal cord evoked magnetic fields (SCEFs) were recorded after stimulation of the lower thoracic cord in healthy subjects and a patient with cervical spondylotic myelopathy and after median nerve stimulation in healthy subjects...

BACKGROUD: Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) with plate-screw construct has been gradually applied for multilevel cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) in recent years. However, long cervical plate was associated with complications including breakage or loosening of plate and screws, trachea-esophageal injury, neurovascular injury, and postoperative dysphagia. To reduce these complications, the zero-profile spacer has been introduced. This meta-analysis was performed to compared the clinical and radiological outcomes of zero-profile spacer versus cage-plate construct for the treatment of multilevel cervical spondylotic myelopathy...
