Abstract

Objectives:Discectomy and inter-vertebral body fusion combined with the anterior plate-screw fixation is the common procedure in cervical spine surgery. But the anterior plate-screw fixation of the C2 spine has been the uncommon surgical procedure. In this study, we analyze the anatomy of the C2 body relevant to C2 anterior plate-screw fixation.
