STUDY DESIGN An anatomic study evaluating the feasibility of posterior screw fixation on the lateral mass of the atlas and comparing the pullout force of C1 posterior lateral mass screws with that of occipital and C2 pedicle screws. OBJECTIVES To study the feasibility, anatomy, and biomechanics of posterior screw fixation within the lateral mass of the atlas. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Occipitocervical fusion is a common choice for atlantoaxial dislocations. After that the movement of… CONTINUE READING
