STUDY DESIGN A retrospective 1-year cost-utility analysis. OBJECTIVE To determine the cost-effectiveness of anterior cervical discectomy and fusion with plating (ACDFP) in comparison with posterior cervical foraminotomy (PCF) for patients with single-level cervical radiculopathy. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Cervical radiculopathy due to cervical spondylosis is commonly treated by either PCF or ACDFP for patients who are refractory to nonsurgical treatment. Although some have suggested… CONTINUE READING
