Abstract

The authors describe an alternative method of C1-2 joint distraction, reduction, and fixation in the treatment of 24 patients with fixed atlantoaxial dislocation. Based on their results, they conclude that there is a place for reduction of fixed atlantoaxial dislocation and subsequent fixation in a procedure that does not require removal of any osseous spinal element.
