Transoral microsurgical odontoid resection and spinal cord monitoring.


Four patients underwent transoral resection of the odontoid with utilization of microsurgical technique and spinal cord monitoring of somatosensory cortical evoked responses. All patients improved following surgery, and no operative morbidity or mortality was encountered. Spinal cord monitoring enhances the safety of the procedure and, reapplied at a later date, detects information of prognostic value.
