Abstract

Expandable cages have been used successfully to reconstruct the anterior spinal column in the treatment of traumatic, neoplastic, infectious, and degenerative spine disease. To the best of our knowledge, no studies report the results of the use of expandable cages in patients undergoing multilevel corpectomies for cervical spine metastatic disease. We report our experience with the use of expandable cages in this subgroup of patients.
