|Title:||Late treatment of nonunion of odontoid fracture|
|Citation:||Techniques in Orthopaedics. Vol.21, No.2 (2006), 115-120|
|Abstract:||Nonunion of odontoid type II fracture is notoriously difficult to treat and can easily become a chronic instability of C1-C2 area. Also, nonunion is difficult to eradicate in light of ongoing bony instability. However, a successful treatment plan of performing posterior wiring and autogenous iliac graft can prevent further neurologic deterioration and ultimately leads to a stable spine. © 2006 Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, Inc.|
