Trans-unco-discal approach. A combined anterior and lateral approach to cervical discs.

Abstract

A series of 40 patients with degnerative discopathy was effectively treated to means of trans-unco-discal approach, which is a combined anterior and lateral approach to cervical discs. Interbody fusion is not performed except for special cases such as significant kyphosis and unstable cervical spine. Twenty patients who had this approach without interbody bone graft have been followed clinically and radiographically for 9 to 36 months. The author describes the surgical techniques, complications, and results.
