Hi Hope Everyone Doing Good This Morning. I Finally Got Appointment With My Nuero. My Question Is If Anyone Knows What It Means When A Pedicle Screw Is Beyond Ventral Cortex And What Is Anterior Spurring. Going Next Friday To Find Out But Would Love To Have Heads Up On Nuerologist.thank You God Bless

Good luck at your upcoming appointment .

I don't know if this will help, yet it explains about the pedicle screw(s), and a bit about the ventral cortex:

Anterior spurring? Spurring is in reference to bone spurs, also known as osteophytes. Anterior means front. But I don't know the total context it appeared in your report.
