STUDY DESIGN This in vitro human cadaveric study measured adjacent-level kinematics after posterior cervical decompression and fixation. OBJECTIVE Quantify adjacent-level changes in range of motion (ROM) and intradiscal pressure after posterior cervical decompression and fixation. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Optimal length of instrumentation after posterior decompression is unclear. Longer posterior cervical fixation constructs may increase the risk of adjacent-segment degeneration… CONTINUE READING
