Summary of "Clinical and radiological results comparison of allograft and polyetheretherketone cage for one to two-level anterior cervical discectomy and fusion: A CONSORT-compliant article."

Recently, many kinds of cages for cervical fusion have been developed to avoid the related complications caused by tricortical iliac crest graft. The existing literature has reported the excellent clinical efficacy and superior fusion rate. However, various types of cages have their own disadvantages. Which bone graft material is the best choice for cage with the fewest complications? At present, there is still no conclusion.
