Abstract provided by Publisher
This article describes the surgical treatment of the fractured body of a cervical vertebra, using the Codman Ti-mesh prosthesis according to the Harms method. This male patient had suffered a multiple fracture of the C6 cervical body; he required decompression of the nerve elements of the vertebral canal by C6 corporectomy and C5-C7 intervertebral fixation. A Ti-mesh prosthesis was filled with bone fragments from the fractured vertebra. A Caspar plate manufactured by Codman was used for C5-C7 intervertebral fixation. The chief advantages of the method applied here include shortening the duration of surgery and providing good, quick fixation.
