Case report of a patient with Pierre Robin sequence who presented with occipitoatlantoaxial instability and congenital thoracic deformity. As there are lack of similar cases in the literature, we would like to introduce a case of a patient with associated malformations, the consultations that we consider that are obligatory, and our decision-making...
Article
Herniation of the meninges through a defect of the spinal canal is a spinal meningocele, and is usually located dorsally in the lumbosacral region. Meningoceles are usually part of a complex developmental disorder, or of a systemic disease, or it can be iatrogenic, as well. We report a very rare case of a true anterior thoracic meningocele.
Article
The authors present a case of medically refractory, neurogenic hypertension where the MR examination revealed an odontoid compression of the anterior medulla as a consequence of a basilar impression. Following transoral odontoidectomy and craniocervical fixation, the blood pressure in the 24-year-old woman returned to normal, and 1 year postoperati...

Full-text available
Herniation of the spinal cord through a dural defect is a rather rare deformity and very easily misdiagnosed as retromedullary occult intraspinal arachnoid cyst or meningocele. The possible origin of the dural defect can be traumatic, iatrogenic or unknown, so in these cases, congenital with great probability. On the thoracal part of the spinal col...
Article
Technical note. Three years of convincing experience with cranial neuronavigation suggested the application of the cranial software and registration method for the transoral access to the C1-C2 vertebrae. The C1-C2 vertebrae are located in close vicinity to the cranial base. If the intersegmental movements of the C0-C1/C1-C2 segments are prevented...

Full-text available
The management of odontoid fractures remains controversial. Only direct anterior screw fixation provides immediate stabilization of the spine and may preserve normal C1-2 motion. To determine the indications, optimum timing, and results for direct anterior screw fixation of odontoid fractures, the authors reviewed the surgery-related outcome of pat...
Article
The neck is the third most common site of involvement after the hands and feet in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Deformities of the cervical spine can appear in the early stage of the disease, but most often they are seen in patients with rheumatoid arthritis with more than ten years of duration. Progression of the deformity is unpredictable, but follo...
Article
The rheumatoid patient with atlanto-axial subluxation presents a major challenge to the spinal surgeon, owing to the poor wound healing and bone quality. Traditional wiring techniques are associated with a high complication and failure rate. Posterior transarticular screw fixation of the atlanto-axial joint offers a credible alternative and when co...
