Home Conference KNS 2019  Upper cervical fixation and fusion
Upper cervical fixation and fusion
Prof. Jaetaek Hong The Catholic University of Korea, Eunpyeong St. Mary's Hospital | Republic of Korea Speciality : Neurosurgery

Destruction of the second cervical vertebra leads to a highly unstable situation. Reconstruction is difficult because the axis plays a central role in rotatory movements and has a unique function in redistributing axial loads. The axis transfers the axial load of the two lateral masses of the atlas to three surfaces on the third cervical vertebra: the two articular facets and the vertebral body. As reconstruction is difficult and the instability in this region is life threatening, pathological processes are often treated less radically compared to other areas of the cervical spine. However, this more moderate approach may result in worse outcomes and prognoses.
