Cervical spine fractures occur in 1 to 3% of trauma cases and account for two-thirds of spinal cord injuries. Injury to the C1/C2 complex accounts for 19 to 25% of cervical spine injuries. Fractures of C2 occur most frequently, 55% of which involve the odontoid peg. The unique anatomical relationship between the atlas and axis produces a variety of injury patterns not seen elsewhere in the spine. Numerous developmental anomalies also occur which can mimic trauma. Well-described fracture… CONTINUE READING
