This stock medical exhibit illustrates an anterior cervical discectomy and fusion using six images. The first image shows the pre-operative condition. The second graphic depicts a lateral incision over the C6-7 disc space. Next, the removal of damaged disc tissue using pituitary rongeurs is demonstrated. In the following two images, a tricortical bone graft is harvested from the left iliac crest and placed into a space created by burring down the inferior endplate of C8 and the superior endplate of C7. The last image pictures the final fixation via attachment of a synthesis plate to the C6 and C7 vertebral bodies.
