Recently, it has been demonstrated that anterior release of tight structures via a transoral approach can assist posterior distraction–reduction technique in restoring the cranio-cervical anatomy in irreducible atlantoaxial dislocations. Our aim was to evaluate the radiological and clinical outcome of anterior release and posterior instrumentation for irreducible congenital basilar invagination. A consecutive series of 15 patients (2007–2009) with irreducible congenital basilar invagination… CONTINUE READING
