Abstract

Reconstruction of the anterior thoracic and lumbar spine has recently become a standard procedure. One popular method of reconstruction is the titanium mesh cage. Titanium mesh cages offer structural support and allow bone to span across the adjacent vertebral endplates. The indications, technique, and potential complications of titanium mesh cages are discussed in detail with emphasis on proper placement of the device.
