To compare the effectiveness of total disk replacement (TDR), anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF), and laminoplasty on atypical symptoms of cervical spondylosis.Patients with confirmed diagnosis of cervical spondylosis and reported atypical symptoms such as blurred vision, headache, nausea, palpitation, tinnitus, vertigo, hypomnesia, and abdominal discomfort were retrospectively included in the present study. They were treated with TDR, ACDF, or laminoplasty depending on the etiology and patient preference...

Klippel-Feil syndrome (KFS) is classically characterized by fusion of any of the two of seven cervical vertebrae. It is identified by the presence of a triad of clinical signs including short neck, limitation of head and neck movements and low posterior hairline. Unusual bony malformations leading to facial asymmetry is the most common oral manifestation associated with KFS. Such maxillomandibular fusion can also result in restricted mouth opening in children. It's a challenge to provide complete rehabilitation in such children...

BACKGROUND: Myxomatous mitral valve disease (MMVD) is one of the most prevalent valvular heart diseases, while back pain, neck pain and upper-extremity numbness are some of the most common complaints in outpatient settings. Decreased thoracic kyphosis (straight back) is a known cause of hastening back or neck problems, radiculopathy, or even myelopathy. The study aim was to examine the relationship between MMVD, straight back, and the need for cervical fusion. METHODS: In this single-center retrospective study, patients who underwent mitral valve repair or replacement due to MMVD (cases) based on age, gender and body mass index (BMI), were matched with patients who underwent coronary artery bypass grafting (CABG) surgery and had no history of mitral valve disease (controls)...

BACKGROUND: Dysphagia and dysphonia are common complications after anterior cervical spine surgery; however, reported prevalences vary greatly due to a lack of reliable clinical standards for measuring postoperative swallowing and speech dysfunction. The Hospital for Special Surgery Dysphagia and Dysphonia Inventory (HSS-DDI) was developed as a patient-derived, patient-reported instrument to measure dysphagia and dysphonia more accurately after anterior cervical spine surgery than existing indices...

Background: Normal sagittal cervical alignment has been associated with improved outcome after anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). Objective: The aim of this study is to identify alterations of cervical sagittal balance parameters after single-level ACDF and assess correlations with postoperative functionality. Methods: A retrospective chart review was performed between January 2010 and January 2014 to identify adult patients with no previous cervical spine surgery who underwent ACDF at any one level between C2 and C7 for the single-level degenerative disease...

The present study aimed to comprehensively compare the clinical and biomechanical efficiency of combined anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) with the anterior cervical disc replacement (ACDR) for treatment of multilevel cervical disc diease (CDD) using a meta-analysis and systematical review. A literature search was performed using Pubmed, MEDLINE, EMBASE and the Cochrane Library for papers published between January 1960 and December 2017. Both clinical and biomechanical parameters were analyzed...

INTRODUCTION: We report a rare case of cervical spine trauma through a cervical disc replacement and adjacent multilevel disc fusions. Cervical disc replacement (CDR) is a viable option for the surgical treatment of degenerative disc disease however long term follow up data regarding this operative technique is poor specifically relating to traumatic complications. We know of no previous reports of bilateral cervical pedicle fractures occurring adjacent to CDR and anterior cervical spine instrumentation...

OBJECTIVE: Cervical myelopathy patients sometimes experience concurrent nonspecific moderate to severe low back pain (msLBP). However, postoperative changes in msLBP after cervical myelopathy surgery have rarely been reported. Awareness of postoperative changes in msLBP may be helpful in consultation. Therefore, the objective of this study was to examine postoperative changes in msLBP. METHODS: Patients with cervical myelopathy and msLBP (a visual analog pain score ≥ 5/10) were prospectively reviewed, and 53 patients (M:F, 28:25; mean age, 63...

Objective The objective of this study was to review current literature on comparison of radiological outcome of cervical arthroplasty with fusion after anterior discectomy for radiculopathy. Methods A literature search was performed in PubMed, Embase, Web of Science, COCHRANE, CENTRAL and CINAHL using a sensitive search string combination. Studies were selected by predefined selection criteria (a.o. patients exclusively suffering from cervical radiculopathy) and risk of bias was assessed using a validated Cochrane Checklist adjusted for this purpose...

OBJECTIVE Most cervical fixations for atlantoaxial dislocation (AAD) are bilateral and symmetric; however, in the setting of osseous and vascular deformity at the craniovertebral junction, asymmetrical and hybrid fixations are used as "salvage" techniques. Because of the rarity of these cases, hybrid cervical fixations for AAD have not been fully explored. The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical feasibility and outcomes of posterior hybrid cervical fixations for AAD. METHODS Twenty-one AAD cases were retrospectively studied; 18 had cervical myelopathy with Japanese Orthopaedic Association (JOA) scores ranging from 9 to 16 (mean 13...

STUDY DESIGN: This is a systematic review and meta-analysis. OBJECTIVE: To examine the differences in outcomes among current constructs and techniques for anterior cervical corpectomy and fusion (ACCF) in patients with single or multiple level cervical myelopathy (CM) secondary to cervical spondylosis or ossified posterior longitudinal ligament. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA: The natural history of CM can be a progressive disease process. In such cases, where surgical decompression is indicated to halt the progression, ACCF is typically chosen for pathology located posterior to the vertebral body...

The study was performed to construct a human cervical cancer cell line C33A which can stably express HPV58E6E7 fusion gene. Firstly, C33A cells were transfected with the recombinant lentivirus LV-HPV58E6E7 which contained HPV58E6E7 fusion gene, and the stably transfected cells (LV-HPV58E6E7/C33A) were screened out by flow cytometry. MTT was used to observe the growth of LV-HPV58E6E7/C33A cells and flow cytometry was carried out to detect the cell cycle. LV-HPV58E6E7/C33A cells were inoculated into the left armpits of nude mice...

BACKGROUND: The choice of anterior vs posterior approach for degenerative cervical myelopathy that spans multiple segments remains controversial. OBJECTIVE: To compare the outcomes following the 2 approaches using multicenter prospectively collected data. METHODS: Quality Outcomes Database (QOD) for patients undergoing surgery for 3 to 5 level degenerative cervical myelopathy was analyzed. The anterior group (anterior cervical discectomy [ACDF] or corpectomy [ACCF] with fusion) was compared with posterior cervical fusion...

OBJECTIVES: The self-locking stand-alone cage has been clinically applied in treating cervical degenerative disc disease (CDDD). However, no long-term clinical and radiographic studies have been performed so far. This retrospective study was designed to analyze and compare the efficacy and outcomes of anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) using self-locking stand-alone cages and cages with the anterior cervical plating system.

Background: The purpose of this study is to elucidate the current practice patterns of Canadian neurosurgeons with regards to anterior cervical discectomy (ACD). Methods: A one-page questionnaire was sent out using SurveyMonkey to all neurosurgeon members of the Canadian Neurological Sciences Federation (CNSF). End points were surgeon preference for ACD surgical method, graft source, the length of collar usage and the recommended time before returning to work. Results: Response rate was 74...

INTRODUCTION: Grisel's syndrome consists in rotational subluxation of C1-C2 following ENT infection or surgery. There is no consensus on management. We present 2 cases requiring surgical treatment in our center. CASE REPORTS: Two 10-year-old patients presented torticollis with cervical pain resistant to medical treatment, with onset a few months after tonsillectomy. In both cases, radiological assessment, comprising CT scan and MRI, showed Fielding-Hawkins type-3 C1-C2 rotational subluxation, without ligament lesion...
