Comparison of ventral corpectomy and plate-screw-instrumented fusion with dorsal laminectomy and rod-screw-instrumented fusion for treatment of at least two-vertebral-level spondylotic cervical myelopathy

R. Kristof, T. Kiefer, F. Ringel & C. Mueller
Objective: To verify the hypothesis that dorsal multilevel laminectomy and rod-screw-instrumented fusion (DLF) for multilevel spondylotic cervical myelopathy (MSCM) is less strenuous for patients, and less prone to perioperative complications than ventral multilevel corpectomy and plate-screw-instrumented[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
