The success of the implantation of a stent instead of the cervical vertebra of a woman in her forties

A medical team at Al-Kafeel Super Speciality Hospital of the al-Abbas's (p) Holy Shrine succeeded in removing a broken cervical vertebra and implanting a titanium stent in its place for a woman in her forties, and the patient left in a stable health condition after spending three days in the hospital.
The specialist in neurosurgery, Dr. Husam al-Anbari, "We performed an operation to remove one of the cervical vertebrae, implant a titanium stent and decompress the spinal cord, for a 45-year-old woman from Baghdad Governorate."
He added, "The operation succeeded completely without any complications," noting that "the skill of the medical and nursing team and the techniques used in this operation were behind the success that was achieved."
Al-Anbari explained that, "the woman was suffering from inflammation of the cervical vertebrae with erosion and fracture of one of them, which caused pressure on the spinal cord and it was necessary to perform surgical intervention without delay," stressing that "the patient's health condition improved after the operation and she left the hospital after three days."
