Abstract

The biomechanical stability of four different spine conditions tested under physiologic flexion and extension conditions was determined. The conditions included the harvested, discectomized, graft-alone, and graft with single-level anterior cervical plate. A plate construct was found to be biomechanically superior to a graft alone, providing a greater degree of immobilization at the fusion site.
