https://www.medilaw.tv - Shows the goals of a corpectomy, which are to remove any pressure from the adjacent spinal cord, and to stabilize the spine in a pain-free, normal alignment. A cervical corpectomy, also known as a cervical vertebrectomy, is used to remove one or more vertebral bodies and the adjacent intervertebral discs that are causing uncontrollable pain or are compressing the adjacent spinal cord or nerve roots. A bony strut is used to replace the excised tissue and maintain correct alignment. An anterior plate is used to ensure stability while fusion occurs. There are many different techniques to achieve the same end result, a pain-free, stable, anatomically positioned bony fusion. However, the basic procedure utilized is common to all cervical corpectomies. It involves the removal of the pathological vertebral body and discs, the bone strut insertion, the anterior plate fixation, bone graft chip insertion, x-ray position checks and finally wound closure. lawsuit animation
