Anterior cervical graft fusion alone or supplemented with an anterior cervical plate instrumentation may be used to treat the diseased cervical spine. An anterior cervical plate is intended to restore the mechanical integrity of the operated spine and decrease graft complications. An alternative method to single-level graft fusion is to use an interbody fusion device. The objective of this study was to compare the biomechanical stability of a single-level graft-plated cervical construct with an interbody cage device.
