Anterior cervical, Spondylosis, Discectomy and fusion, Cervical fracture


Background: Age related problems in the spinal segment bring about a degenerative course known as spondylosis. Hereditary, condition, and word related impacts may play a role. These spondylosis changes may bring about direct compressive and ischemic dysfunction of the spinal cord known as cervical spondylosis.

Methods: In this examination 30 patients were selected with cervical spondylosis with, in the fundamental, myelography includes, and treated by anterior cervical discectomy and fusion using anterior cervical system (Apex plate) provided by Auxein Medical Pvt. Ltd. These patients are separated in two gatherings, one is male (12) and another female (18).  Functional outcome of the patients was assessed by the visual analogue scale score at post-operative follow up at 1months, 3 months, 6 months, 9 months and 1 year.

Results: The after effects of this clinically treatment have by and large been great and this is especially so in old patients with an alternate injury, for example, C1-C2, C2-C3, C3-C4, C4-C5, C5-C6 and C6-C7.

Conclusions: The finish of this examination is that the cervical spondylosis patients might be oversees effectively with anterior cervical discectomy and fusion utilizing anterior cervical system. Effectively clinical outcomes in regards to indications improvement and general fulfillment with the surgery were excellent with low rate of complications.
