Cervical Posterior Long Construct Stabilization
The cervical spine sustains the horizontal gaze and supports the mass of the head. It has widest range of motion comparison to the rest of the spine. Authors describe a case of highly unstable cervical fracture due to ankylosing spondylitis successfully treated with long-posterior fixation bridging across the cervicothoracic junction. Indications, preparations, technical aspects of the posterior cervical long stabilization as well as medical considerations are described in step-by-step fashion.
