OBJECT The groove for the vertebral artery (VA) may be bridged on C-1, forming a canal through which the artery passes. Because this variant may significantly affect the commonly performed C-1 posterior laminectomy, the authors studied the incidence and radiological appearance of this anatomical feature in surgical specimens. METHODS Anatomical measurements were performed using a Vernier caliper (accurate to 0.1 mm) on 166 dry C-1 vertebrae. In addition, a convenience sample of 172 cervical x… Expand
