12. The magnitude of angular and translational displacement of dens fractures is dependent on the sagittal alignment of the cervical spine rather than the force of injury. (PubMed)

The magnitude of angular and translational displacement of dens fractures is dependent on the sagittal alignment of the cervical spine rather than the force of injury. Although it is generally believed that the magnitude of dens fracture displacement is proportional to the amount of force applied to the cervical spine during injury, the factors responsible for displacement have not been studied.Our aim was to determine factors that contribute to horizontal and angular displacement of dens (...) . Horizontal displacement was only dependent on C6-C7 inclination angle and anteroposterior sagittal balance.Disc space inclination angles of the lower cervical spine and the cervical sagittal balance most contribute to the magnitude of angular and horizontal displacement of the dens after fracture.Copyright © 2017.
