ABSTRACT

Study Design: Review of the literature. Objectives: To present up-to-date information on the use of cages in anterior cervical fusion for degenerative cervical disease. Summary of Literature Review: The use of cages in anterior cervical fusion for degenerative cervical disease remains controversial. Materials and Methods: Review of the relevant literature. Results: The use of cages in anterior cervical fusion of one and multiple disc levels was effective in terms of biomechanical stability and clinical outcomes without complications at the donor site compared with use of an autograft. However, the use of only a cage had many drawbacks, so the combined use of a cage and a cervical plate is recommended. Conclusions: The use of cages in anterior cervical fusion was effective in terms of clinical outcomes, and the combined use of a cage and a cervical plate is recommended. Key words: Degenerative cervical disease, Anterior cervical fusion, Clinical efficacy, Cage, Cervical plate
