360 Degree Cervical Fixation Revision of Failed Cervical Kyphotic Deformity Fusion

Abstract

Cervical kyphotic deformity (CKD) associated with cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is controversy issue in degenerative spine disease. In addition to cord compression, it carries a risk of fusion failure due to progression of the angle and sagittal imbalance. We illustrated a young male patient diagnosed as progressive myelopathy from kyphotic angle. He had posterior decompression with lateral mass fixation that failed after 5 years and mandated 360° fusion. Circumferential fusion should be surgical preferential in patient with angle progression.
