Example text

Unlike CT-based navigation, it does not provide an axial image, which, in most spinal screw fixation procedures, is the critical plane to identify intrusion into the spinal canal by a medially displaced screw. A variation of conventional fluoroscopy, isocentric fluoroscopy, offers some improvements to the limitations of fluoroscopic navigation. This device acquires images intraoperatively by rotating the C-arm in a 1808 arc around the patient. As with conventional CT imaging, the acquired images can then be reconstructed into multiplanar images, including images in the axial plane.

Particularly for C4-5 or C5-6 operations, a routine skin incision at the upper or mid-portion of the neck will produce such a perpendicular surgical trajectory. In this case, the uncinate process lies along the perpendicular surgical trajectory [Figs. 2(a)–(c)]. The skin incision to the point of bone exposure is similar to the general description of the anterior cervical foraminotomy approach. The most medial 1- to 2-mm portions of the transverse processes of both upper and lower vertebrae are removed, and the vertebral artery is identified.
