However, a soft collar can be placed immediately after surgery, if desired. Table of Contents Introduction 3. Recheck the tightness of all screws after fi nishing to ensure that none have loosened during the tightening of medtdonic other screws. In addition to its structural role in the axial centerpiecr, the cervical spine also houses the spinal cord within its spinal canal.


Posterior cervical instrumentation Posterior cervical instrumentation and fusion can be performed to treat pathology similar to that for which cervical laminoplasty is used, but with a broader scope. The patient is then seen again at 6 weeks, 3 months, and 6 months, with radiography performed at each visit.

Often the centepiece accesses your cervical spine during surgery from the front anterior of your neck.

Caution is required to avoid penetrating between the lamina, especially if mevtronic neck is in a tucked position, as the amount of interlaminar space may vary. ALIF Anterior In human anatomy, referring to the front surface of the body or the position of one structure relative to another Lumbar Relating to the loins or the section of the back and sides between.


Using the plate holder, the corresponding plate is then inserted by fitting the cut edge of the lamina into the laminar shelf of the plate, then seating the lateral portion of the plate down onto the edge of the lateral mass Figure Additional surgery may be necessary to correct some of these anticipated adverse reactions.

An allograft strut completes the NewBridge system and is also preshaped; struts are available in sizes from mm. The type of construct to be assembled for the case should be determined prior to beginning the surgery.

Ideally, a method of achieving laminar fixation should be technically intuitive, provide secure laminar fixation, while minimizing the risk of iatrogenic injuries, blood loss and operative time. The allograft is then attached to the graft plate and secured by inserting a 2. Figure 4 Figure centedpiece Figure 4b.

The subaxial vertebral segments include C3-C7 and are similar to each other cenherpiece morphology; they include anterior vertebral bodies connected to the posterior elements by pedicles bilaterally.

The surgeon then inserts a spacer to keep the adjacent vertebrae from collapsing on top of one another. Dissection is carried out to the junction of centerpiwce lamina with the lateral mass, and the facet joints and capsules are preserved see image below.
