Figure 1: Anterior odontoid screw fixation (a-h). This 52-year-old patient sustained injury to the neck due to road traffic accident and had only persistent neck pain (American Spinal Injury Association [ASIA] E); (a) Computed tomography (CT) showing a non-displaced type II odontoid fracture; (b) Sagittal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showing a normal spinal cord; (c) Axial MRI showing an intact transverse ligament; (d) O-ARM-guided accurate K wire placement was achieved across the fractured segments; (e) Well-placed anterior odontoid screw; (f and g) CT scan at 6 months showing the healed fracture with a well-placed screw; and, (h) Coronal CT scan at 6 months showing the healed fracture
