Anterior cervical discectomy & fusion (ACDF) : Cervical spine involves the first seven vertebral levels of the spinal column in the body. They are the very top bones which form the neck region. The surgery involves removal of whole or part of an inter-vertebral disc (disectomy) wherein the surgeon reaches the damaged disc from the front (anterior) of the spine through the throat area.  

Surgery from the front of the neck is more accessible than from the back (posterior) because the disc can be reached without disturbing the spinal cord, spinal nerves.

The surgeon uses a fluoroscope to locate the impaired disc and the region around it is separated.

Then, the damaged disc and ligament are removed carefully.  To prevent the vertebrae from collapsing , a bone graft is inserted which serves as a bridge to fill the open disc space. The bone graft is fixed using metal plates and screws.  

Finally, the operation is concluded and dressing is applied.

 Sources of bone graft 

  • Autograft bone : The surgeon takes the  patient’s own bone cells from the hip (iliac crest). The graft has a higher rate of fusion because it has bone-growing cells and proteins. The disadvantage is the pain in the hipbone after surgery. The bone graft from hip is taken at the same time as the spine surgery. 
  • Allograft: The graft is collected from people who have agreed to donate their organs after they die. Since the graft does not have bone-growing cells, it is packed with shavings of living bone tissue taken from spine of the patient during the surgery.
  • Bone graft substitute comes from man-made plastic, ceramic, or bioresorbable compounds. Often called cages, this graft material is packed with shavings of living bone tissue taken from your spine during surgery.


Why is it needed?

Following are the reasons for performing Cervical Spine Surgery: -

  1. Herniated or slipped disc– It occurs due to injury when the disc brakes open. 
  2. Degenerative disc– It is an aging disorder that involves a steady degeneration of the disc between the vertebrae.
  3. Rheumatoid arthritis– It is a long-term autoimmune disease that causes inflammation, swelling, and pain around the joints and other body organs.
  4. Cervical Spondylosis– This involves an abnormal degeneration of the cartilages and bones in the neck region 
  5. Spinal Stenosis– This involves narrowing of the space in the spine and the beginning of the bones and other parts to touch the spinal cord and nerves.
