The craniovertebral junction (CVJ) is a complex anatomical area upon which most of the motion of the upper cervical spine depends . Because of its unique range of motion, the CVJ is subject to seve...
Anterior odontoid screw fixation allows for the internal fixation of unstable odontoid fractures with low morbidity, good fusion rates, and preservation of the atlanto-axial range of motion when appli...
Odontoid fractures easily lead to instability, causing spinal cord injury. The aim of this study was to measure and analyze the micro-architecture and morphometric parameters of the normal odontoid wi...
The globus pallidus internus (Gpi) is a major target in functional neurosurgery. Anatomical studies are crucial for correct planning and good surgical outcomes in this region. This study aimed to desc...
For odontoid fractures, surgical treatment approaches including anterior odontoid screw fixation approach and the posterior C1-C2 arthrodesis approach are generally adopted in practice. However, the c...
This prospective study addresses one of the most controversial topics in the treatment of cervical spine trauma: the management of type II odontoid process fractures in the elderly. It is ...
Usually, cervical spine fractures are not considered as osteoporotic fractures. However, recent studies show that odontoid fractures are the most common fractures of the cervical spine in ...
Odontoid fracture is a common fracture accounting for 10-15% of all cervical fractures. It occurs in bimodal fashion in elderly and young patients. The classification of Anderson and Alon...
Cervical trauma is a common cause of disability following spinal cord injury, especially in athletic populations. The biomechanics in the atlantoaxial joint carry more than 50% of the rota...
The anatomy of the acetabulum is well described in the past literature, yet the understanding of the clinical importance of the anatomical morphology of the AIIS has grown in recent years....

The use of combination of imaging techniques or platforms (e.g., MRI SCAN and PET SCAN) encompassing aspects of anatomical, functional, or molecular imaging methods.
The use of molecularly targeted imaging probes to localize and/or monitor biochemical and cellular processes via various imaging modalities that include RADIONUCLIDE IMAGING; ULTRASONOGRAPHY; MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING; fluorescence imaging; and MICROSCOPY.
The study of animals - their morphology, growth, distribution, classification, and behavior.
The study of the anatomical structures of animals.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
