Summary of "Anterior Cervical Corpectomy and Fusion Versus Posterior Laminoplasty for Cervical Oppressive Myelopathy Secondary to Ossification of the Posterior Longitudinal Ligament: A Meta-analysis."

The purpose of this study was to compare the clinical effect of anterior cervical corpectomy with fusion vs laminoplasty for cervical ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament. The outcome measures included the Japanese Orthopaedic Association score, neurological recovery rate, and complication rate. Subgroup A represented studies with the mean preoperative canal occupying ratio being less than 50%, whereas subgroup B represented studies with the mean canal occupying ratio being 50% or greater. In subgroup A, no difference was found between the 2 groups in the postoperative Japanese Orthopaedic Association score and neurological recovery rate. In subgroup B, the anterior cervical corpectomy with fusion group had a higher postoperative Japanese Orthopaedic Association score and neurological recovery rate. The authors recommend anterior cervical corpectomy with fusion for cervical ossification of the posterior longitudinal ligament when the canal occupying ratio is 50% or greater, and they prefer laminoplasty when the canal occupying ratio is less than 50%.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A calcification of the posterior longitudinal ligament of the spinal column, usually at the level of the cervical spine. It is often associated with anterior ankylosing hyperostosis.

A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.

A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.

The first cervical vertebra.

A rare developmental defect in which the heart is abnormally located partially or totally outside the THORAX. It is the result of defective fusion of the anterior chest wall. Depending on the location of the heart, ectopia cordis can be thoracic, thoracoabdominal, abdominal, and cervical.
