The anterior interbody fusion combined with internal metal plate fixation was performed from January, 1988 in seven patients with unstable mid and lower cervical spine. The insertion of the metal plate was simple and maintained the block bone graft in satisfactory position. We concluded from this early follow-up that, this alternative method of internal fixation of cervical spine allowed not only effective stabilization for the unstable spine but also early mobilization and short hospital stay.
