BACKGROUND: Post-traumatic unilateral or bilateral sub-axial cervical spine dislocations with locked facets are quite common. In developing countries like India, many patients with cervical injuries report late due to many reasons like rural backgrounds, lack of infrastructures and skilled surgeons, unawareness, poor socioeconomic status, lack of transportation to the specialized center with proper facility, etc. Early management is essential to maximize better neurological outcome. Delayed or neglected presentation makes treatment more challenging...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case series. OBJECT: To compare postoperative outcomes of professional athletes treated for cervical disk herniation after anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) and posterior foraminotomy (PF), or total disk replacement (TDR). SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: ACDF, PF, and TDR have all led to excellent outcomes in the general population but the unique demands in the professional athlete necessitate specific study...

Recombinant human bone morphogenetic protein-2 (rhBMP-2) is a growth factor utilized to stimulate bone development in several clinical scenarios. Although the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved this therapeutic modality for only two applications, it is frequently used off-label in anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) procedures as an alternative to iliac crest bone graft (ICBG), the prior standard of care. This usage has been a source of controversy in the medical community due to evidence of increased rates of postoperative edema and dysphagia...

OBJECTIVE: Modic changes are signal intensity changes in adjacent vertebral bone marrow on magnetic resonance imaging. Few studies have investigated these changes with regard to the cervical spine. In this study, we investigated the associations between cervical degenerative disease and Modic changes. METHODS: We conducted a retrospective collection of radiological data in patients with neck pain at Pusan National University Yangsan Hospital from January 2010 to December 2014...

STUDY DESIGN: Meta-analysis of published randomized controlled trials (RCTs). OBJECTIVE: To determine whether anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF), cervical disc replacement (CDR) or minimally invasive posterior cervical foraminotomy (MI-PCF) provides the best outcomes for patients with symptomatic single-level, single-side, cervical radiculopathy. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: The surgical treatment of cervical radiculopathy is still controversial...

STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective cohort study of prospectively collected data from the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program (NSQIP) database. OBJECTIVE: To determine the postoperative morbidity of one- and two-level outpatient anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) relative to inpatient cases, and risk factors for postdischarge complications. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: ACDF is increasingly performed as an outpatient procedure, with evidence demonstrating outpatient one-level ACDF to be associated with fewer postoperative complications than inpatients...

BACKGROUND: Cervical radiculopathy is the common clinical entity, often caused by "wear and tear" changes that occur in the spine. In the younger population, cervical radiculopathy is a result of a disc herniation or an acute injury causing foraminal impingement of an exiting nerve, whereas in the older individuals, it is due to foraminal narrowing from osteophyte formation, decreased disc height, and degenerative changes of the uncovertebral joints anteriorly and of the facet joints posteriorly...

Zhengfeng Zhang
OBJECTIVE: The anterior only surgical procedure including discectomy, open reduction and fusion is used as a recommended approach in the treatment of unilateral cervical facet dislocations, but is difficult to achieve satisfactory anterior open reduction by vertebra distractor to spread the facet joints, especially for delayed management of unilateral cervical facet dislocation (7-21days). The goal of this study was to report an anterior pedicle spreader technique to distract directly the facet joint for anterior reduction and the results of 4 patients with successful application and describe safety...

OBJECT: Anterior cervical discectomy with fusion (ACDF) and laminoplasty (LAMP) are used for the treatment of multilevel cervical myelopathy. Despite their widespread applications certain differences are noted between the ACDF and LAMP procedures. A meta-analysis was conducted in order to compare the clinical outcomes, complications, and surgical trauma between ACDF and LAMP for the treatment of multilevel cervical myelopathy. METHODS: Medline, EMBASE, Google Scholar, and Cochrane databases were used for the search of relevant studies until September 2016...

BACKGROUND: Cervical myelopathy (CM) is a clinical diagnosis that may be associated with hyperintense areas on T2-weighted magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan. The use of contrast enhancement in such areas to differentiate between neoplastic and degenerative disease has rarely been described. CASE DESCRIPTION: We present a 41-year-old female with a 5-month course of progressive CM. The cervical MRI revealed spinal cord swelling, stenosis, and a hyperintense signal at the C5-C6 and C5-C7 levels...

PURPOSE: Previous studies have demonstrated that total cervical disc replacement (cTDR) represents a viable treatment alternative to the 'gold standard' anterior cervical discectomy and fusion for the treatment of well-defined cervical pathologies at short- and mid-term follow-up (FU). However, the implementation and acceptance of a non-fusion philosophy is closely associated with its avoidance of adjacent segment degeneration. Proof of the functional sustainability and clinical improvement of symptoms at long-term FU is still pending...

Rui Feng, Joshua Loewenstern, John Caridi
BACKGROUND: Cervical stand-alone interbody cages have seen increasingly wider use over the plate-and-screw construct in single-level anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) in the treatment of cervical disc herniation and degenerative spondylotic conditions. Despite positive clinical outcomes, the efficacy and safety of using these devices in contiguous multi-level ACDF, however, has remained controversial. CASE DESCRIPTION: This report discusses a burst fracture seen as a complication in multi-level cervical stand-alone cage use...

BACKGROUND CONTEXT: Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) and cervical disc replacement (CDR) are both acceptable surgical options for the treatment of cervical myelopathy and/or radiculopathy. To date, there are limited economic analyses assessing the relative cost-effectiveness of two-level ACDF versus CDR. PURPOSE: The purpose of this study was to determine the five-year cost-effectiveness of two-level ACDF versus CDR. STUDY DESIGN: Secondary analysis of prospectively collected data...

Srikanth Naga Divi, Mark M Mikhael
STUDY DESIGN: Retrospective case series. PURPOSE: To report our early experience using allogenic mesenchymal cellular bone matrix (CBM) products in cervical spine fusion. OVERVIEW OF LITERATURE: Multi-level cervical fusions have historically yielded lower fusion rates than single level fusions, especially in patients with high risk medical comorbidities. At this time, significant literature in cervical fusion outcomes with this cellular allograft technology is lacking...

Extreme long-term clinical outcome studies following anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) with an autologous iliac crest with and without Caspar plating (ACDF + CP) for the treatment of radiculopathy caused by cervical disc herniation (CDH) are extremely rare. Hospital records of patients who underwent ACDF or ACDF + CP for the treatment of CDH at least 17 years ago were reviewed. Information about diagnosis, surgery, pre- and postoperative clinical process, and repeated procedure was analyzed...
