C4-7 Anterior Cervical Corpectomy and Fusion with Fibular Strut Graft
This exhibit depicts a C4-7 anterior cervical corpectomy and fusion with a fibular strut graft. The procedure begins with an incision over the anterior neck, exposing C4-7. Distraction pins are then placed, midline C4-7 disc herniations are removed, and total corpectomies of C5-6 are completed.The vertebral endplates are decorticated with a high speed drill, and fibular strut allograft is impacted into the vertebral column. Lastly, the fusion is stabilized with the placement of an anterior cervical plate and screws.
