Summary

Traumatic pathology of the cervical spine often requires the surgical immobilization of the injured area. Regarding the intersomatic arthrodesis of the cervical spine, two methods are used both alone and jointly. They are the use of a bone graft and the osteosynthesis with implant material. We strongly advise the use of the autologous bone graft alone. In a few and very special cases do we use osteosynthesis material.
