Titanium mesh cages have been used widely for spinal reconstruction since 1986 when they first were introduced. Despite their popularity, relatively few studies have been published on their use in the cervical spine. These cages can be used as structural devices containing autologous local bone or iliac crest bone graft, obviating the need to harvest large structural bone grafts. The main disadvantages of their use are the increased costs and the difficulty of assessing fusion status.
Titanium mesh cages are rigid cylindrical devices that can be filled with morselized bone to provide structural support for the anterior spine and simultaneously facilitate interbody arthrodesis. They first were introduced in 1986 and subsequently have been developed as an alternative to the use of structural autografts and allografts.
