Abstract

A report on the use of fibular graft in 15 cases of myelopathy secondary to cervical spondyloarthrosis with anterior compression of the dural sac at more than two levels. The surgical procedure is based on a midline somatotomy by anterior approach. The fibula appears to be more suitable for the purpose than the iliac crest due to homogeneity of structure throughout its length and to the mechanical strength afforded by its cortical ring.
