A single blind, prospective, randomized controlled trial on the effect of local steroid application versus intravenous steroids on dysphagia following anterior cervical discectomy and fusion (ACDF)

Project: Research project

Description

Hypothesis: We hypothesize that local application of steroids in ACDF surgery will lead to a decreased incidence of dysphagia and dysphonia in the postoperative period as compared to intravenous steroids or a control group.
