Frequently Asked Questions Related to Anterior Cervical Discectomy And Fusion Acdf

Before the Procedure (7 Questions):

Mild cases may not need treatment. But, moderate to severe cases that are left untreated can lead to pain and increasing deformity, as well as potential heart and lung damage.

Also, if it is the case of a young child, the deformity increases drastically with hormone changes happening during puberty.

Vertebral fusion at more than one level may also be a risk factor for dysphagia. In summary, it appears from this study that difficulty swallowing after spinal surgery is an effect associated with anterior cervical spine (neck) surgery much more often than with lumbar (low back) spine surgery.

However, this gets normal after 5-7 days of the surgery.

Anterior cervical discectomy and fusion is a surgery to reduce or eliminate chronic pain in the neck and back due to a problem with the discs. This surgery removes the degenerative or herniated disc from the neck

Anterior cervical disectomy is needed to relieve the pressure on the nerve root or on the spinal cord by removing the ruptured disc, in some cases there may also be need of some plates or screws to stable the spine.

This treatment is thought as an effective treatment for nerve root or cord compression which is caused due to herniated disc, according to some recent searches this procedure has not been found to be necessary.

Yes, you can get your disectomy  without fusion, anterior cervical discectomy without fusion is a safe and effective treatment for cervical disk herniation.

Some of the alternatives to disectomy surgery are excersises, physiotherapy, medications and injections. When these treatment fails then doctor will suggest you to go for disectomy surgery.

During the Procedure (4 Questions):

It will last for 1-2 hours and hospital stay would be for 2 days.

Discectomy surgery will need around one to three hours to complete under general anaesthesia.

Anterior disectomy surgery is being done by an orthopaedics or neurosurgeon.

An incision is being made in front of the neck, the skin incision may be made through one of the natural folds of your neck. Then a graft is inserted to fuse together the bones above and below the disc.

Post the Procedure (11 Questions):

Pain Management at Home after ACDF. Some pain is likely after discharge from the hospital. Narcotic pain medication is usually prescribed to help reduce the pain in the first 1 to 4 weeks after surgery.

After the shower, patients should remove the bandage and dry off the surgical area. Patients should not take a bath until the wound has completely healed, which is usually around 2 weeks after surgery.

The fusion should be solid by about 3 months and the newly fused bone should continue to grow stronger for up to about a year. The surgeon may take X-rays to determine the fusion's progress.

3 Weeks to 3 Months After ACDF Surgery. By 3 weeks, patients usually are cleared to do some light work around the home. Lifting items that weigh more than 10 pounds is now allowed.

You may need to wear a neck brace for a while. It may take 4 to 6 weeks to get back to your usual activities, but it may depend on what kind of surgery you had.

The fusion can take anywhere from three months to a year to become solid after surgery, and you could still have some symptoms during that time.

Your doctor might recommend that you wear a cervical collar to support your neck for the first four to six weeks.

If you're considering an anterior cervical discectomy with fusion (ACDF) surgery for neck pain, it's common to worry about how much your neck will be able to move after the procedure.

After all, one or more of your neck's mobile joints would be fused solid and cease to move. However, this doesn't mean that you will NOT be able to move your neck at all.

It will take around four to six weeks to recover after surgery and till that time you have to avoid doing any heavy strenuous activity.  Till that time you have to wear a collar to stabilze your neck.

Some of the common complications of the surgery includes respiratory problem, other problem includes long term pain at the site of bone graft, infection of the incision, infection of the vertebrae and bleeding. These complications are not fatal and they can be treated effectively.

After surgery patient will experience some pain at the incision site, pain killers are usually given to get relief from pain.

If  you notice the sign of infection such as redness or draining at the incision site then you should get check with your doctor. The  time taken to return back to normal activities are different for ever patient.
