Knowledge of the quantitative anatomy of the subaxial cervical vertebrae is essential to safely perform anterior cervical surgery and to ensure adequate decompression of neural structures. In spite of this, little has been published in the neurosurgical literature regarding the spatial relationship of the lower cervical vertebrae and the implications of this anatomy for anterior cervical surgery. We report the three-dimensional analysis of the mid- and lower cervical spine in 10 cadaver… CONTINUE READING
