Abstract

We report five cases of cervical osteophytes that caused dysphagia.<br>All cases were middle-aged or elderly male patients.<br>Four of the five cases with symptomatic cervical osteophytes underwent surgical resection of the osteophytes via a standard anterior approach. One of them (case 1) had symptomatic osteophytes of the cervical anterior longituidal ligament. We made a diagnosis of OALL (ossification of the anterior longitudinal ligament) and operated.<br>Dysphagia due to cervical osteophytes is usually treated conservatively, but surgical resection should be considerd in cases with severe dysphagia.
