Related Articles Two-level cervical arthroplasty using a "no-distraction" technique. Neurosurg Focus. 2017 Jan;42(VideoSuppl1):V1 Authors: Rajakumar D, Sharma A, Hari A, Konar S, Krishna M Abstract Cervical arthroplasty is being recognized as an emerging alternative to anterior cervical fusion with comparable or superior outcomes. The authors describe the surgical nuances of 2-level cervical arthroplasty in a case of 2-level degenerative disease. In this surgical technique, conventional vertebral body distraction has been avoided to prevent facet distraction, which can be a cause of persistent postoperative neck pain. Good motion preservation was observed at the 1-year follow-up examination. The video can be found here: https://youtu.be/YTpRVRXuZZk . PMID: 28042723 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE]
