Cervical Spine Injuries with Proposed Two-Level Fusion Procedure
Cervical Spine Injuries with Proposed Two-Level Fusion Procedure

This stock medical exhibit depicts cervical spine injuries with a proposed double-level cervical discectomy and fusion procedure. The first illustration is a sagittal view of the cervical spine showing the spinal injuries with a disc bulge at C5-6 with nerve root foraminal stenosis and a compromise of the central canal. Also shown is a disc bulge at C6-7. The pain caused by the injured spine is shown being treated conservatively with an epidural steroid injection. The proposed fusion procedure is illustrated in three steps, beginning with the incision exposing the cervical vertebrae. The next illustration shows the removal of the C5-6 and C6-7 disc material. Then a bone graft is placed between the vertebrae and secured with a plate and multiple screws completing the fusion.
