Depression and anxiety are common psychiatric conditions among US adults, and anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF) remains one of the most commonly performed spinal surgeries. Mental health conditions are known to affect physical health and thus have the potential to contribute to adverse outcomes following spine surgery; however, a comprehensive assessment of long-term outcomes and the additive economic impact of these conditions in patients undergoing ACDF has not been well described.
While back pain is associated with depression, there are few studies assessing whether preoperative depression can affect outcomes after lumbar spine surgery.
A fall from a height is the one of common causes of thoracolumbar fractures. In most cases, falls from a height are accidental. However, some are the intentional fall for suicidal attempt.

Few studies have evaluated the relationship between depression and patient-reported outcomes (PROs) following minimally invasive spinal surgery.
Few studies have quantified depression symptoms in the preoperative period using a validated metric such as Patient Health Questionnaire-9 (PHQ-9) and have tracked patient-reported outcomes (PROs) following common spinal procedures, such as an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF).
