ABSTRACT
Atlanto axial(A-A) dislocation which may be either congenital or due to traumatic inflammatory causes or tumor etc are managed accordingly depending upon their causes. Generally conservative treatment or operative posterior fusion have been employed. A case of traumatic A-A transligamental dislocation has been encountered at St. paul's Hospital by our neurosurgical team. A transoral anterior fusion had been done and the result was successful and very encouraging. It is therefore with great pleasure that we share with you this experience, that management of A-A dislocation could wholly be by surgical technique.
Key Words: A-A dislocation; Transoral fusion; Surgical technique
