A comparison of zero-profile anchored spacer (ROI-C) and plate fixation in 2-level noncontiguous anterior cervical discectomy and fusion- a retrospective study

Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) is the classic surgical treatment for symptomatic cervical degenerative disc disease (CDDD). However, there is controversy over the best surgical management in pa...

ConclusionsShort ‐term surgical complications develop in 35% of the women after radical hysterectomy for early‐stage cervical cancer in the Netherlands, a nation with centralised surgical care. Comorbidities predict surgical complications and open surgery is associated with excessive perioperative blood loss.

Cervical disc replacement: examining "real-world" utilization of an emerging technology. J Neurosurg Spine. 2020 Jan 17;:1-7 Authors: Witiw CD, Smieliauskas F, Ham SA, Traynelis VC Abstract OBJECTIVE: Cervical disc replacement (CDR) has emerged as an alternative to anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) for the management of cervical spondylotic pathology. While much is known about the efficacy of CDR within the constraints of a well-controlled, experimental setting, little is known about general utilization. The authors present an analysis of temporal and geographic trends in "...

Publication date: Available online 13 January 2020Source: Brazilian Journal of OtorhinolaryngologyAuthor(s): Semih Ak, Caner Kiliç, Samet ÖzlügedikAbstractIntroductionSurgical treatment options are limited for nasopharyngeal cancer for many reasons including epidemiological and histological properties, proximity to important structures, heavy lymphatic drainage, and the difficulty in ensuring a safe surgical margin; therefore primary treatment is generally radiotherapy and chemotherapy. With current radiotherapy technology, oncological success has been increased and the quality of life of patients during t...

Publication date: Available online 11 January 2020Source: Journal of Clinical NeuroscienceAuthor(s): Ching-Jen Chen, Ilana E. Green, Bradford B. Worrall, Andrew M. SoutherlandAbstractTo investigate potential association between collateral arterial supply and stroke in patients with isolated internal carotid artery dissection (iCeAD). We hypothesized a lower risk of stroke in patients with more robust collateral supply. This is a single-center, retrospective review of iCeAD patients between 1994 and 2018. iCeAD patients with sufficient neuroimaging data were included. Patients were categorized based on cerebral infarction (...

Herein, we described 2 patients with posterior spinal artery syndrome (PSAS) caused by vertebral artery dissection. The patients complained of sudden neck pain or walking instability. Neurological examination revealed sensory loss, muscle weakness, and sensory ataxia. Angiography showed double lumen sign or intimal flap in the vertebral artery. T2-weighted imaging and diffusion-weighted imaging of MRI showed a hyperintense lesion in the dorsal side of the cervical spinal cord at different times after onset.

Study Design. Retrospective database review Objective. The aim of this study was to analyze the implications of solid organ transplant (SOT) on postoperative outcomes following elective one or two-level anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF). Summary of Background Data. Although SOTs have been associated with increased morbidity, postoperative outcomes in SOT recipients undergoing cervical spinal surgery are not well studied. Methods. A retrospective database review of Medicare patients younger than 85 years who underwent an elective one to two-level ACDF from 2006-2013 was conducted. Following our exclu...

Study Design. Retrospective comparative study. Objective. The purpose of this study was to investigate whether preoperative depressive symptoms, measured by mental component score of the Short Form-12 survey (MCS-12), influence patient-reported outcome measurements (PROMs) following an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) surgery for cervical degeneration. Summary of Background Data. There is a paucity of literature regarding preoperative depression and PROMs following ACDF surgery for cervical degenerative disease. Methods. Patients who underwent an ACDF for degenerative cervical pathology were identi...

CONCLUSION: The present study showed that giving RT together with chemotherapy is not more effective than RT alone for stage IB-IIA cervical cancer patients with intermediate-risk factor(s).
