Figure 5: Intraoperative pictures of the second patient showing the discectomy; (a) a wide dural exposure is seen following the corpectomy; (b and c) vascular intramedullary lesion is seen after dural opening, and a myelotomy performed; (d-e) the excision of the cavernoma; (f) Use of the fibrin glue after partial dural closure to prevent cerebrospinal fluid leak; (g-h) Demonstration of the ideal placement of an expandable polyethyletherketone cage and anterior cervical plate-cage and the anterior cervical plate, respectively. Note that the bone grafts are being used by interposing them in between the cage and plate for better fusion
