The article discusses a study on fullendoscopic anterior cervical fusion. The researchers used dilation sheaths in order to create an adequate working space in front of the endoscope while preserving the minimally invasive approach. It compares the fullendoscopic fusion surgery to the selective percutaneous endoscopic cervical decompression. A bed was also designed for the bone graft in the midline with different burrs after the decompression.

    A number of guidelines have been proposed to aid in determining the need for radiologic evaluation of the cervical spine (c-spine) in victims of blunt trauma. Mechanism of injury has not been shown to be an independent predictor of injury or the lack thereof. The current study was undertaken to...
