Learning Curve in Surgical Treatment of Odontoid Fixation for a Series of Type II C2 Fractures.

The craniovertebral junction (CVJ) is a complex anatomical area upon which most of the motion of the upper cervical spine depends [1]. Because of its unique range of motion, the CVJ is subject to seve...

Odontoid Fusion.

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...

Micro-architecture study of the normal odontoid with micro-computed tomography.

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...

Morphometric Study of the Internal Globus Pallidus using the Robert, Barnard and Brown Staining Method.

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...

Fusion rates for odontoid fractures after treatment by anterior odontoid screw versus posterior C1-C2 arthrodesis: a meta-analysis.

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...

Randomized, Controlled Trial of Posterior C1-2 Fusion Versus Bracing Alone for Treatment of Type II Odontoid Process Fractures in the Elderly

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 ...

Characteristics and Outcomes of Odontoid Fragility Fractures in Elderly

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 ...

Anterior Odontoid Screw Osteosynthesis in Treatment of Type 2 Odontoid Fracture

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...

Surgical Outcome of Type II Odontoid Fracture, Harms Technique

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...

Evaluation of the AIIS Using Hip Ultrasound(AIISUS)

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....
