Methods: A total of 180 consecutive cases of multi-level cervical degenerative disease studied were grouped as follows: Group A (60) patients underwent anterior discectomy and PEEK fusion; Group B (50) patients underwent anterior discectomy, autogenous iliac crest graft (AICG) fusion and plate fixation; Group C (70) patients underwent anterior discectomy and AICG only.
The major graft complications in Group C (AICG without plating) were graft collapse and nonunion; screw pullout and screw breakage were the main causes of plating complication.
Conclusions: Both the PEEK cage without plating (Author's note: The FDA has not approved interbody devices to be used without supplemental fixation) and AICG with plating are good methods for interbody fusion in multilevel cervical degenerative diseases.
