Abstract

A five motion segment model of the cervical spine was developed to study the biomechanics of multi-level cervical corpectomy and compare strut grafting alone with the addition of anterior plating instrumentation during extension loading. The biomechanical stability of four different spine conditions were analyzed which are harvested, corpectomized, strut-grafted, and strut-graft and plated. Compensatory increased motion at the adjacent motion segments may explain clinical reports of late increased degenerative changes at certain levels. The results support the notion that anterior strut-grafting alone may be sufficient stabilization following multi-level corpectomy and that anterior cervical instrumentation provides additional stability to the spine which may help prevent graft failure during extension loading.
