Abstract

The stability of a burst fracture of the atlas (Jefferson's fracture) should be determined in order to decide upon the appropriate treatment. Unstable fractures included those with a rupture of the transverse ligament, or those in which union has been incomplete despite treatment. A occiput-to C2 or an atlantoaxial arthrodesis may be indicated.
