Objectives: Cervical osteotomy can be performed on patients with cervical kyphosis due to ankylosing spondylitis. This study reviews the role of two new developments in cervical osteotomy surgery: internal fixation and transcranial electrical stimulated motor evoked potential monitoring (TES-MEP). Methods: From 1999 to 2004, 16 patients underwent a C7-osteotomy with internal fixation. In 11 patients, cervical osteotomy was performed in a sitting position with halo-cast immobilization (group S… CONTINUE READING
