STUDY DESIGN An in vitro study compared the biomechanics of the upper cervical spine among three groups of cadaveric specimens, each with a different source of instability: transverse-alar-apical ligament disruptions, odontoid fractures, or odontoidectomies. The responses of the three groups were again compared after a uniform posterior cable and graft fixation was applied to the specimens. OBJECTIVES To quantify and compare the effects of different injuries on atlantoaxial stability and to… CONTINUE READING
