Abstract

A variety of techniques exist for tackling stabilization of the craniocervical junction. Historically, craniocervical instability was treated with a simple bone autograft onlay technique and a halo-vest to immobilize the neck and skull. Because of fusion failures and patient morbidity associated with use of a halo-vest, surgical techniques have moved toward provision of immediate internal stabilization [3]. Currently, modern internal fixation techniques exist that provide an array of occipital plate constructs to achieve proper fusion through rigid stabilization of the craniocervical junction.
