Anterior Only Surgery for Management of Traumatic Subaxial Cervical Spine Instability

2017-05-12 13:38:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Classic management of cervical spine sublaxation and dislocation is combined anterior and posterior approach. Unfortunately there are disadvantages for this approach like: increasing morbidity related to each approach, increasing surgical costs, increasing operative time as well as the risk of blood loss.

Anterior approach has the advantages of supine position, less surgical trauma and direct anterior decompression of neural elements. Disadvantages include less mechanical stability and postoperative dysphagia.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

The first cervical vertebra.

The anterior concavity in the curvature of the lumbar and cervical spine as viewed from the side. The term usually refers to abnormally increased curvature (hollow back, saddle back, swayback). It does not include lordosis as normal mating posture in certain animals ( = POSTURE + SEX BEHAVIOR, ANIMAL).
