The Posterior Cervical Screw Fixation System is a medical device used to treat cervical spine injuries, and is usually used to treat cervical spine fractures, dislocations, and degenerative cervical spondylosis.
The main function of this system is to fix the implant on the vertebral body with screws at the back of the cervical spine, and stabilize the cervical spine by fixing the vertebral body, so as to achieve the treatment of the disease.
The posterior cervical screw fixation system is generally made of titanium alloy, stainless steel and other materials, which can adapt to different conditions and surgical needs.
Titanium alloy screw: The screw is the core component of the posterior cervical screw fixation system. The screw is inserted into the vertebral body through the thread to stabilize the cervical spine.
Connecting Rod: The connecting rod is the key component that holds the screws together and is usually made of titanium alloy or stainless steel.
Occipital Plate: It is a metal plate that is attached to the base of the skull (occipital) and screwed into place to provide a stable anchor for spinal hardware such as rods and screws.
Titanium or stainless steel implants: Implants include pedicle screws and lateral masses that provide additional support and fixation.
Cervical screws are an important component of spinal fusion surgery in the neck region. They are used to stabilize the cervical spine by anchoring vertebral bones together. There are several different types of cervical screws that can be used depending on the patient's specific needs and the surgeon's preference.
Pedicle Screws: Pedicle screws are inserted into the pedicle of the vertebral body and provide strong fixation. They are commonly used in posterior cervical fusion procedures.
Lateral Mass Screws: Lateral mass screws are inserted into the lateral masses of the vertebrae and are commonly used in posterior cervical fusion procedures.
Transarticular Screws: Transarticular screws are inserted across the facet joint and are used to provide stability in cervical fusion procedures.
Anterior Cervical Screws: Anterior cervical screws are inserted through the front of the neck and are used to provide stability in anterior cervical fusion procedures.
Cervical Lag Screws: Cervical lag screws are inserted across the vertebral bodies and are used to compress the bone graft in cervical fusion procedures.
After posterior cervical fusion surgery, it is normal for patients to experience limited mobility in their neck due to postoperative pain and swelling. In the early stages of recovery, patients may need to wear a cervical collar or brace to immobilize the neck and promote healing.
As the healing process progresses, patients may gradually begin to regain mobility in their neck. However, the extent of neck movement will depend on several factors such as the number of levels fused, the type of surgical approach, and the patient's individual healing process. In general, patients who have undergone posterior cervical fusion can expect to have some degree of restricted neck mobility, particularly in the areas that have been fused.
