Adjacent Segment Mechanics in Cervical Arthrodesis Patients

Study Description

Adjacent Segment Mechanics in Cervical Arthrodesis Patients

This study aims to determine to what extent patient-specific factors, iatrogenic factors, and biomechanical factors influence cervical spine mechanics after single-level and two-level arthrodesis.

Procedure - C5-C6 arthrodesis

A standard Smith Robinson anterior medial approach to the cervical spine. Vertebral endplates will be prepared by removing the cartilage endplate. Tricortical anterior iliac crest autografts will be harvested with a low-speed oscillating saw. Allografts will be fresh-frozen, vacuum-sealed, nonradiated tricortical grafts. All grafts will be fashioned in a typical Smith-Robinson formation. The motion segment will be distracted approximately 2-mm beyond the graft height before the insertion of each ...read more on ClinicalTrials.org
