Cervicothoracic junction instability should be stabilized with the circumferential fusion. In addition, cervicothoracic junctional area should be examined carefully in acute traumatic injury not only to confirm hidden lesions but also to make the proper surgical plans. Here, three patients who underwent cervicothoracic arthrodesis at our institution are presented with a review of literature.
Key Words: Cervicothoracic injury; Pedicle screw; Lateral mass screw; Anterior fusion
