Oleksandr Barysh, Ruslan Buznytsky

Abstract


The article describes a retrospective analysis of surgical treatment of 26 patients with diseases and injuries of their cervical spine, who underwent anterior interbody fusion of different lengths with help of vertical cylindrical mesh implants, which were filled with bone autotransplants. Some mistakes and complications were revealed.

Keywords
