The authors measured cervical spine kinematics of patients before and after anterior cervical discectomy and fusion surgery. From the Biodynamics Laboratory website: This NIH-funded prospective study aims to identify the factors that have the greatest effect on adjacent segment mechanics after cervical fusion. A total of 88 anterior cervical fusion patients will be tested prior to surgery, and 1 and 3 years after surgery. Participants will perform full range of motion flexion/extension and rotation while biplane radiographs are collected at 30 images per second for each movement trial.
