In 45 cases of patients in the period from 1995 to 1999 for cervical discopathy, polymethacrylate bone cement was used as a stabilizing material. The duration of hospitalization ranged from 3 to 23 days (average 7,5 days). In 38 cases (84,4%) one-level fixation was performed, while two-level fixation was performed in 7 cases (15,6%). The observation period for the group in question ranged from 2 to 48 months. No complications associated with the stabilizing material used were discovered. On the basis of the material here presented it would appear justifiable to recommend this cement as a good and safe stabilizing material in patients operated for cervical discopathy using the anterior approach.
