Özet

A case of type IIA odontoid fracture with posterolateral dislocation accompanied by spinal cord injury is presented. Cervical traction was employed but reduction could not be achieved with up to 8 kg of traction. The patient was treated with intraoperative reduction and C1-2 posterior transarticular screw fixation with supplemental bone-wire fusion, and rigid fixation was obtained without any complication.
