Anterior cervical osteotomy of diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis lesions with computer‐assisted navigation surgery: A case report

  • General Medicine

Key Clinical MessageDiffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis (DISH) involves spine ligament ossification. Computer‐assisted navigation (CAN) effectively aids complex surgeries, such as anterior cervical osteotomy, to alleviate progressive DISH‐related dysphagia.AbstractWe describe a 68‐year‐old man with sudden onset dysphagia to both solids and liquids. Radiographic Imaging revealed DISH lesions from C2 down to the thoracic spine. The patient was successfully treated with CAN anterior osteotomy and resection of DISH lesions from C3–C6 and had complete symptom relief within 2 weeks post‐operatively.
