Cervical spondylosis can be treated with various surgical decompression techniques, notably anterior cervical decompression and fusion (ACDF) and posterior keyhole foraminotomy1. Although each procedure has distinct methods, there is no compelling evidence in the literature to advocate one over the other. Furthermore, subtle differences within the techniques have yet to be examined such as the salvage or resection of uncovertebral joints during ACDF. Systematic reviews2,5 and meta-analyses3… CONTINUE READING
