In patients with an unstable cervical spine, maintenance of cervical immobilization during tracheal intubation is important. In McGrath videolaryngoscopic intubation, lifting of the blade to raise the epiglottis is needed to visualize the glottis, but in patients with an unstable cervical spine, this can cause cervical spine movement. By contrast, the Optiscope, a rigid video-stylet, does not require raising of the epiglottis during tracheal intubation. We therefore hypothesized that the Optiscope would pro...
This is a prospective cohort study.
Perioperative spinal cord injury and postoperative neurological deficits are the major complications in spinal surgery. Monitoring of spinal cord function is of crucial importance. Somatosensory evoked potentials and transcranial electric motor-evoked potentials are now widely used in cervical spine surgery. Although much has been written on spinal cord monitoring in adult spinal surgery, very little has been published on the incidence and management of monitoring of cervical spine surgery in the pediatric ...
Surgical site infection (SSI) following spine surgery is associated with increased morbidity, reoperation rates, hospital readmissions and cost. The incidence of SSI following posterior cervical spine surgery is higher than anterior cervical spine surgery, with rates from 4.5-18%. It is well documented that higher body mass index (BMI) is associated with increased risk of SSI after spine surgery. There are only a few studies that examine the correlation of BMI and SSI after posterior cervical instrumented f...
This is a retrospective review of a single surgeon cervical deformity (CD) database.
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.
The aim of this study was to quantitatively evaluate the surgical anatomy of the vertebral artery and the sub-axial spine to assess their influence on cervical spine surgery.
A 36-year-old man was diagnosed with Langerhans cell histiocytosis (LCH) of the cervical spine with a unifocal expansive osteolytic lesion of C4. The surgical management with a 2-year follow-up and a review of the literature on LCH of the cervical spine are presented. Although a rare condition, LCH is an important differential diagnosis of any osteolytic lesion in the cervical spine with localized pain in a young adult patient. Review of the literature suggests a higher prevalence of LCH lesions affecting t...
Advanced-imaging screening for asymptomatic blunt cerebrovascular injury is controversial. Vertebral artery injury (VAI) is most commonly associated with cervical spine fracture, and many guidelines advocate indiscriminate screening for all cervical spine fractures. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the addition of computed tomographic angiography (CTA) results in a change in management for patients with cervical spine fractures.
Context: Prior studies have shown common use of post-operative bracing, despite advances in modern day instrumentation rigidity and little evidence of brace effectiveness.
Numerous studies have analyzed the impact of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) on the cervical spine and its related surgical interventions. However, there is a paucity of literature available conducting the same analyses in patients with non-cervical spine involvement.
Airway management in the presence of acute cervical spine injury (CSI) is challenging. Because it limits cervical spine motion during tracheal intubation and allows for neurological examination after the procedure, awake fiberoptic bronchoscopy (FOB) has traditionally been recommended. However, with the widespread availability of video laryngoscopy (VL), its use has declined dramatically. Our aim was to describe the frequency of airway management techniques used in patients with CSI at our level I trauma ce...
Limited or no data exist evaluating risk-factors associated with prolonged opioid use following cervical arthrodesis.
Cervical kyphosis surgery poses significant challenge to the spine surgeons. Etiologies of cervical kyphosis are many, each having its own outcome and treatment challenges. Irrespective of the etiology, the treating physician should consider all options fully to improve function and prevent neurological worsening. We outline management principles and decision-making in case of rigid rounded kyphosis of cervical spine and highlight the technique of the internal gibbectomy procedure, which is never reported i...
To examine the prevalence of cervical spine injuries among children and adolescents referred with suspected and diagnosed sports-related concussion (SRC); and evaluate the effect of cervical spine dysfunction (CSD) on physician-documented clinical recovery following SRC.
Management of patients with persisting pain after spine surgery (PPSS) shows significant variability, and there is limited evidence from clinical studies to support treatment choice in daily practice. This study aimed to develop patient-specific recommendations on the management of PPSS.
The article reviews the effects of cervical osteophytosis and spine posture on swallowing, and how they can cause dysphagia.
The preoperative prediction of medical complications is essential to optimize perioperative management. SpineSage™ is a free of charge online calculator to predict medical complications in spine surgery. The current study utilizes it in patients undergoing spine surgery to assess whether the predicted risks would correlate with the actual complication rate in clinical practice.
In France, surgery for lumbar disc herniation is now being done in the outpatient ambulatory setting at select facilities. However, surgery for the cervical spine in this setting is controversial because of the dangers of neck hematoma. We wanted to share our experience with performing ambulatory anterior cervical discectomy in 30 patients at our facility.
Cervical spondylotic myelopathy is a common cause of neurological disability, especially in aging populations. There are several approaches to decompress the cervical spinal cord, including anterior cervical discectomy and fusion, corpectomy and fusion, arthroplasty, posterior cervical laminectomy with or without fusion, and laminoplasty. Less well described is minimally invasive cervical laminectomy. The authors report their technique and results for minimally invasive cervical laminectomy.
Is there an impact of cervical plating on the development of adjacent segment degeneration following Smith-Robinson procedure ? A magnetic resonance imaging study of 84 patients with a 24 year follow-up.
Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) without and with cervical plating (ACDF+CP) are accepted surgical techniques for the treatment of degenerative cervical disc disorders. The effect of CP on the development of adjacent segment degeneration (ASD) remains unclear.
Biomechanical studies revealed that pedicle screw instrumentation has a superior stabilizing effect compared with other internal fixations in reconstructing the subaxial cervical spine. However, severe neurovascular risks preclude surgeons from routinely conducting pedicle screw manipulation in cervical spine.
