Instability of the atlantoaxial complex may result from inflammatory, traumatic, congenital, neoplastic, or degenerative disorders and often requires surgical stabilization. Initial dorsal wiring techniques allow safe fixation but require rigid external immobilization and have been associated with high fusion failure rates. Rigid screw fixation techniques including transarticular screw fixation and C1-C2 rod-cantilever fixation offer higher fusion rates and less need for rigid immobilization… CONTINUE READING
