Role of Corpectomy in Spine Surgery

Corpectomy in Spine Surgery case-2

Corpectomy is a surgical procedure of removing the entire or a part of the vertebral body which involves decompression of neural elements and maintaining sagittal balance of the spine. Corpectomy is a technically demanding procedure with increased risk of postoperative morbidity. However, this procedure is done in selected cases, to remove anterior neural compression, deformity correction, tumor resection and in cases where anterior support is needed (trauma and infection).

A case series with corpectomy from cervical to lumbar level performed during the last year is presented. Conditions which included were degenerative, deformity, trauma, infection and tumors.
