X-ray after C5-L3 Spinal Fusion
This patient had undergone several prior surgeries to treat severe cervicothoracic kyphosis. The cause of the disorder is not known. After one of the surgeries, a wound infection developed that affected the quality of the tissue on the patient's back. The x-ray shown here is from the most recent spine surgery, and is a view from front to back (AP, anteroposterior). The procedure involved vertebrectomy, instrumentation, and spinal fusion from C5-L3.
