STUDY DESIGN Case-series study. OBJECTIVE To assess range of cervical rotation possible after atlantoaxial fixation in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients using axial CT. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA The atlantoaxial complex is primarily responsible for rotation, and the percentage of global cervical rotation dependent on C1-C2 is 60%. Fusion of C1-C2 was… CONTINUE READING
