Autologous bone graft is the gold standard in cervical fusion. Obtaining autologous cancellous bone from adjacent vertebral body is unique and beneficial in anterior cervical interbody fusion. Sufficient amount of cancellous bone graft is curetted from adjacent cervical vertebral bodies and packed in the titanium cages placed in the intervertebral space. Cortical bone obtained from corticectomy and anterior osteophytes add to the volume along with cancellous bone. Fusion achieved is satisfactory and the technique obviates harvesting corticocancellous graft from iliac crest.
