Abstract

Study Design. A case series is presented. Objectives. To describe the methods of correction used in this study for flexible severe cervical deformity, and to report the results in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. Summary of Background Data. Long-standing rheumatoid arthritis can lead tosevere cervical deformity, causing significant functional deficits and poor cosmesis. Information on the use of traction combined with surgical stabilization to achieve correction of flexible deformity in rheumatoid patientsis sparse in the English literature. Methods. A review of five cases, including pertinent history, physical examination, radiographic evaluation, traction techniques, surgical stabilization, and outcomes, was conducted. Results. Excellent correction of deformity and radiographic union were achieved in all he patients. One patient had minimal loss of correction after surgery and thereafter remained stable. Pin tract infections were the only significant complication. Conclusions. Severe cervical flexible deformity in rheumatoid patients cancause significant disability and can be treated successfully with a combination of traction techniques and surgical stabilization.
