The provider inserts a metallic cage or mesh device(s) to cover one or more defects caused by the complete or partial removal (resection) of a vertebral body (corpectomy) and may use screws or flanges to attach it to the front of the vertebrae on either side of the defect where a partial or complete removal of a vertebral body was performed; the device helps maintain the distance between vertebrae. The provider performs this procedure during a spinal interbody arthrodesis procedure, which is fusion, or permanent joining, of vertebrae over the joint space.
