  • Patient History62 year old maleStatus post anterior cervical diskectomy, C4-5Now with sub-adjacent disc herniation with spinal cordcompression, cervical stenosis and neural foraminalstenosis.The patient also has massive posterior cervicaldegeneration at C2-3, C3-4, C4-5, and C5-6 causingincreasing axial neck pain, arm pain.The patient has been taking an escalating amount ofnarcotics for 7 years.The patient has impending neurologic deficit with posteriorcervical pain, shoulder pain indicative of mild myelopathy.
  • Pre-op X-rays
  • Indications for SurgeryStatus post anterior cervical diskectomy and fusion,C4-5.Now with sub-adjacent disc herniation and spinal cordcompression, C5-6.The patient on CT scan had massive arthrosis at C2-3,specifically on the left-hand side. This is superjacent to a highlymobile segment. The significant subaxial degeneration hadcaused the patient to have dysfunctional pain.Severe posterior subaxial arthritis.Failure to thrive with increase narcotic usage.Motor-sensory deficit and neurologic sequela.Partial cervical kyphosis.
