ACD cervical surgery - is fusion necessery to happen?

Started by martach on 09/21/2012 7:20am

Dear community members,
can you please help me to understand if after the ACD cervical surgery is nececery for fusion to happen?
It is not ACDF sergury but ACD and I am not sure wether fusion should happen in both type of surgery in order for surgery to be succesfull?

What will happen if fusion doesn't accour in the first 3 month after the surgery, can this happen latter own, during the time?

Thank you in advance,
Kind regards
Martina
