The transoral approach to anteriorly placed lesions at the upper cervical region is not new, but is still infrequently used by neurosurgeons for lesions in this region. The indications and surgical methods vary widely, and there is much room for discussion of the technical details. We are reporting our experience with this technique in two patients; one is a traumatic odontoid fracture and another is a cervical epidural abscess.
Key Words: Transoral approach; Traumatic odontoid fracture; Cervical epidural abscess; Microsurgery; Halo device
