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.

Patients with single-level cervical degenerative disc disease commonly undertook anterior discectomy. To compare the effect of anterior cervical discectomy without fusion (ACD), anterior c...
The aim of this study is to examine the clinical outcome after anterior cervical decompression and fusion, and cervical disc prostheses in general. Additionally these two surgical methods ...
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 o...
The aim of this study was to analyze rates of perioperative complications and subsequent cervical surgeries in patients treated for cervical degenerative disc disease with anterior cervical discectomy...
We provide a step-by-step technique guide for performing anterior cervical foraminotomy in this video. An illustrative case was presented with detailed narration and a discussion of surgical nuances. ...

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 etiolog...
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).
