Background. Anterolateral oblique corpectomy is an alternative approach to treatment of multilevel cervical spinal disease. It is stated that the approach does not cause instability in the patients with hard discs, so fusion or instrumentation is not required. The authors undertook a study on stability of the cervical spine by an animal model to establish if this approach causes instability.
