  2. 2. Anterior Cervical Discectomy - Overview • Anterior Cervical discectomy and Fusion (ACDF) is a surgical procedure to remove herniated or degenerative disc of the cervical spine. • The procedure treats nerve root or spinal cord compression by decompressing the spinal cord and nerve roots of cervical spine with a discectomy. • The incision for this procedure is made in front of the spine through the throat. After removal of the disc, a bone graft is inserted which makes the bone above and below the disc space to fuse and grow together as one solid bone. This is known as fusion or arthrodesis. • ACDF is done when other non surgical treatments have failed to relieve patient’s disabling pain.

  3. 3. Am I a candidate for ACDF? You are a candidate for ACDF if: - Your diagnostic tests (MRI, CT) show that you have a herniated disc. - There is significant weakness in your hand or arm. - Your arm pain is worse than neck pain - Your symptoms have not been able to be improved with physical therapy or medication. For free opinion from best surgeons, please scan & send latest medical reports to "info@indicure.com"
  4. 4. Conditions treated by ACDF • Degenerative disc disease – With natural wearing and tearing of discs, bone spurs form and the facet joints get inflamed. The disc shrink with time and dry out, thus lose flexibility and elasticity. As a result, the disc spaces get smaller which leads to occurrence of conditions such as canal stenosis and disc herniation. • Bulging or herniated disc – A disc is said to be herniated when the gel-like material within the disc bulges out or ruptures through a weak area in the surrounding wall (annulus). Due to the squeezing of this gel-like material, irritation and swelling occurs along with painful compression of nerves.

  5. 5. Anterior Cervical Surgery Approach • The anterior approach of surgery means that the surgery for cervical discectomy is performed through the front of the neck rather than being performed from back of the neck. • The surgery has several typical advantages: - Better access to cervical spine – The anterior approach provides more access to the cervical spine, from C2 segment to cervico-thoracic junction ( the junction where cervical spine joins with the thoracic spine) - Lesser postoperative pain – With this approach patients tend to have lesser incisional pain than the posterior approach of cervical discectomy.

  6. 6. How is ACDF procedure performed? ACDF surgery includes following steps: 1. Anterior Surgical Approach – The surgeon reaches the herniated disc of the cervical spine from an anterior approach by making an incision on the skin on the left or right side of the neck. 2. Removal of disc – Upon reaching the disc space, the surgeon takes an X-ray to confirm that the spine surgeon is at the correct level of the spine. Next, appropriate portions of disc are removed by first cutting the outer annulus fibrosis and then removing the nucleus pulposus. With this approach, most of the disc is usually removed. 3. Decompression of spinal canal – Generaly for spinal decompression posterior longitudinal ligament is removed so as to access to the spinal canal to remove any osteophytes or any disc material that may have extruded through the logament. 4. Cervical fusion – Post cervical discectomy, an anterior cervical fusion is almost always done. The bone graft inserted into the evacuated disc space serves to prevent any space collapse and promotes the growth of the two vertebrae toether as a single unit. This is known as fusion of vertebrae prevents any local deformity and serves adequate room for nerve roots and spinal cord.
