Purpose. Evaluation of the application results of functional multislice computed tomography (fMSCT) in the surgical correction of cervical spine instability (CSI).

Materials and methods. The analysis of the results of examination of patients with a diagnosis of instability of the cervical spine was carried out. The main group included patients (n1 = 35, 100%) in whom for the preoperative diagnosis of instability of the cervical spine was used fsmct on Aquilion One 640 (Canon, Japan). Using the save-pair method, a comparison group was selected, which included patients (n2 = 35, 100%), examined by X-ray with functional breakdown.

Results. Treatment in the main group was significantly better. The time of surgical intervention in the main group was 2,3 ± 0,3 hours, in the control group it was significantly longer – 4,2 ± 0,3 hours (p <0,05). In the postoperative period, the frequency of such complications as the development of radiculopathy and kyphotic deformity was less common in the main group.

Conclusion. The results of surgical treatment in patients who underwent fMSCT at the preoperative stage were significantly better. The FMSCT technique can be recommended for widespread introduction into clinical practice.
