Older literature described delayed myelopathy and death in patients with a
history of untreated or nonunited odontoid fractures, indicating the importance of
achieving fracture union. No level I evidence is available to make treatment
recommendations; however, there is level III evidence on which treatment options
can be based. Julien et al. found that type I and III fractures can be treated with
rigid external immobilization such as a halo vest. One hundred percent union
rates were ...

interarticularis (hangman's fracture). (By permission of Mayo Foundation for
Medical Education and Research. All rights reserved.) Atlas fractures are
considered to be stable or unstable, depending on the integrity of the transverse

tinuity size and acuity play an important role in determining the amount of strain
necessary to initiate and propagate halo fractures. Residual strain (from the
welding operation per se) could be a cause for plastic strain occurring at low
applied service stress levels and thus the applied stress would not have to
account for the total strain in the weld. Fracture Features Adjacent to
Discontinuities in E7018 Interrupted Tensile Test Specimens Three E7018 weld
specimens were plastically ...

A more contemporary definition notes that the fracture line must extend into the
C1–C2 lateral mass joint (right). defined as those in which the fracture line
extends into the C2 superior articular surfaces (Figure 14.13) (25). Blood supply
is rich in the primarily cancellous bone of the C2 body. Thus, healing is much
more reliable than with type II fractures. Nondisplaced fractures can be treated in
a hard cervical collar. Displaced fractures should be reduced and treated in a
halo. Surgery ...

Treatment typically involves halo vest immobilization or occipitocervical fusion (
see Fig. 60-4). Dens fractures are subclassified (see Fig. 60-4). Type 1 fractures
occur through the tip of the dens above the transverse ligament. They are quite
rare and may be associated with atlantoaxial instability, necessitating arthrodesis
. Type 2 fractures, the most common, occur through the base of the dens and are
usually unstable (Figs. 60-4 and 60-6). There is considerable controversy
regarding ...
