Background. The use of a graft in cervical inter-vertebral disc repair is still a controversial procedure. The aim of the treatment is to restore the physiological disc height and to achieve fusion. This study was performed to determine the rate of narrowing of the cervical intervertebral disc after using a titanium cervical intervertebral cage (BAK-C; Sulzer Spine Tech, Minneapolis, MN).
