Abstract

Management of cervical spinal infections is a frequent problem encountered by spine surgeons. While categorized as a single disease process, cervical infections are, in reality, a combination of two separate issues: treatment of infected tissues (consisting of surgical debridement and appropriate antimicrobial therapy) and correction or prevention of cervical deformity. The anatomic characteristics of the cervical spine serve to create a complex management setting that requires a thoughtful approach in order to minimize complications. Aside from difficulties inherent to the treatment of infected tissues (i.e., recurrent or refractory infections), correction of cervical deformities demands an understanding of the unique biomechanical parameters of the cervical spine. A comprehensive approach to the management of these concerns is paramount in developing a methodical surgical strategy.
