Abstract

Using Titanium Mesh Cage and Anterior Cervical Plate for Cervical Corpectomies

Spondylosis is the most common disease affecting the adult cervical spine. Controversy still exists over performing corpectomy versus discectomy for multilevel cervical disc disease. When the spondylosis
leads to spinal cord compression beyond the disc space, removal of the cervical vertebrae may be necessary to achieve adequate decompression. Cervical corpectomy is a well-recognized treatment option for multilevel anterior compression of the cervical spinal cord.
