SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA One of the frequently acknowledged sequelae following anterior cervical fusion is the development of adjacent segment disease. It has been argued that a spine fusion transfers stress to adjacent levels and results in increased compensatory motion. However, there are conflicting reports as to whether this actually occurs, and… CONTINUE READING
