SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA
Increased patient comorbidities and the use of bone morphogenic protein were found to increase the risk for postoperative complications, while cervical plating was associated with a strong decline in this risk. In addition, poor patient mental health outweighed the adverse of impact of other comorbidities on 2-year revision risk. The presence of a postoperative complication was the key modifiable risk factor associated with reoperation risk. Conclusions from this study may help surgeons better identify high-risk ACDF patients for more careful patient selection, counseling, informed consent, and management.
