Current concepts of anterior cervical discectomy and fusion: a review of literature.

Song KJ, Choi BY - Asian Spine J (2014)

Bottom Line: Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is a safe and effective procedure for degenerative cervical spinal disease unresponsive to conservative management and its outstanding results have been reported.To increase fusion rates and decrease complications, numerous graft materials, cage, anterior plating and total disc replacement have been developed, and better results were reported from those, but still there are areas that have not been established.Therefore, we are going to analyze the treatment outcome with the various procedure through the literature review and determine the efficacy of ACDF.

Mentions: Zero-P system (Synthes GmbH Switzerland, Oberdorf, Switzerland) has the design that fixes the existing stand alone cage onto vertebral body with screws, it shows comparable clinical outcomes and fusion rates relative to using anterior cervical plating, and is reported that it also reduced the prevalence of dysphagia or degenerative change of adjacent segment (Fig. 5) [50].
