Abstract

Elective spine surgery becomes more popular every year. Unfortunately, a significant number of these patients report persistent or recurrent symptoms, and/or develop late sequelae. Revision spinal surgery can be a complex and risky endeavor, and this patient population represents a challenge to spine care teams. Indications for cervical revision surgery can include pseudarthrosis, adjacent segment disease, incomplete decompression, failure of instrumentation, and progressive deformity. Determining whether or not a patient is a candidate for revision surgery is crucial. This chapter reviews the patient evaluation and treatment strategies for conditions that require cervical spine surgery.
