The patient  was complaining of severe neck pain with bilateral radicular syndrome for more than 15 years. Exacerbation for the last 4-5 months with inability to rotate the head for all directions and fainting attacks with weak grip, extension and triceps both upper limbs with hypalgesia of the left C4 and 5 dermatomes. The patient was operated and discectomy of the C4-5 disc done, where a fresh fragment came from a defect in the PLL after applying traction and the C5-6 was old, requiring drilling with osteophytectomy. Syntex cervical miniplate with 6 screws  14 mm length were applied to fuse the C4-5-6 with traction of 12 Kg applied during that.
