Five cases of cervical instability after trauma were reviewed after being treated at other hospitals with posterior methylmethacrylate fixation. Three cases developed infections, and reduction was lost postoperatively in two other cases. A total of four re-operations was required. The disadvantages of this technique of treatment of post-traumatic cervical instability are emphasized.
