STUDY DESIGN.: Cadaveric biomechanical study. OBJECTIVE.: To quantify spinal motion created by transfer methods from supine to prone position in a cadaveric C1-C2 global instability model. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA.: Patients who have sustained a spinal cord injury remain at high risk for further secondary injury until their spine is adequately stabilized.(More)
