The surgical management of traumatic C6 - C7 spondyloptosis in a patient without neurological deficits.
Minim Invasive Neurosurg 2004; 47(4):242-4MI

Abstract

An unusual case of traumatic C6 - 7 total spondyloptosis with neurologically intactness at the time of injury is reported in a 35-year-old man. The patient was treated with a single-stage combined anterior-posterior and anterior operation to restore the cervical spondyloptosis, and creation of a three-column stabilization of the spine without neurological deficits. To the best of the authors' knowledge, there is no case report of traumatic spondyloptosis of cervical spine, presenting without neurological deficits in the pre- and postoperative periods. A brief summary of the clinical presentation, the surgical technique, and a review of the relevant literature are presented.
