Cervical Spine Injuries with Surgical Discectomy and Fusion
This stock medical exhibit depicts an injury to - and subsequent diskectomy and fusion of - cervical vertebra C5 and C6. The first image consists of a locator panel detailing exactly where the injury occurred, as well as an interpretation of a pre-operative MRI showing the protruding C5-C6 disk. The repair procedure is then depicted in four steps, including the transverse incision in the anterior neck, the removal of the C5-C6 disk, the insertion of allograft material, and the placement of a Synthes titanium plate.
