C1 lateral mass screw insertion from the caudal-dorsal to the cranial-ventral direction as an alternate method for C1 fixation: A quantitative anatomical and morphometric evaluation.

Abstract

OBJECT C1 lateral mass screw has been widely used for fixation of the upper cervical spine. However, traditional fixation methods are not without complication. Morphometric measurement of an alternative approach is conducted. METHODS Three-dimensional CT scans of the cervical spine obtained in 100 adults were evaluated, and key measurements were… (More)
