ABSTRACT
We report a case of C1-2 instability with a bilateral high-riding transverse foramen that was treated with rod-screw fixation using a technique of translaminar rigid screw fixation of the axis. It is believed that a C1-2 fixation with bilateral C-2 translaminar screws has an important advantage over previously reported techniques of C1-2 fixation by eliminating the risk of injury to the vertebral artery during C2 screw placement.
Key Words: C1-2 instability; Rod-screw fixation; Translaminar screw
