Feasibility of C2 Translaminar Screw as an Alternative or Salvage of C2 Pedicle Screws in Atlantoaxial Instability
Journal of Spinal Disorders & Techniques, 06/29/2012
Park JS et al. – C2 translaminar screws provide surgeons with an expanded option for posterior fusion in high cervical lesions. This technique is safe and easy to adopt with a favorable rate of successful fusion. The authors believe that preoperative planning using computed tomographic scan is mandatory and use of an additional connector may reduce the stress and strain of the screws.
