Atlantoaxial joint distraction is a key procedure for the treatment of selected patients affected by basilar invagination (BI). In recent years, several authors have reported various techniques of distraction and fixation of the C1-C2 joint using different types of intra-articular spacers, with or without posterior fixation. We review the pertinent literature and propose a feasibility study on the use of a new device for the distraction of the C1-C2 joint aimed to the descent of the dens out of the foramen magnum suggesting its application on selected cases of BI.

Abstract

Atlantoaxial joint distraction is a key procedure for the treatment of selected patients affected by basilar invagination (BI). In recent years, several authors have reported various techniques of distraction and fixation of the C1-C2 joint using different types of intra-articular spacers, with or without posterior fixation. We review the pertinent literature and propose a feasibility study on the use of a new device for the distraction of the C1-C2 joint aimed to the descent of the dens out of the foramen magnum suggesting its application on selected cases of BI.
