Abstract

Anterior odontoid screw fixation is a valid surgical option for unstable odontoid fractures, as type II Anderson D'Alonzo fractures. Grauer further divided type II fractures in subtypes according to the fracture line, providing recommendations for implementation of screw fixation techniques. Primary endpoint of our study is to evaluate the postoperative results of minimally invasive odontoid screw insertion in terms of outcome, fusion rate and stability of cranio-cervical junction. Secondary endpoint was to investigate the influence of age or fractures' features on outcome and fusion rate.
