ABSTRACT

Survival after traumatic atlanto-occipital dislocation is rare. Severe persistent neurological deficits are common in the survivors, but early resuscitation and the use of the newer diagnostic techniques have contributed to improved outcomes. We present here the case of a 42 year old man with traumatic atlanto-occipital dislocation combined with a dens fracture, and the patient obtained good clinical results after we applied a Halo-vest and performed posterior fusion.
