Bracing of the Dens Axis
Bracing of the dens axis was introduced in Halle at the Martin Luther University in 1984. The technique involves compression synthesis achieved by means of a plug screw which is pressed apart at its tip (Figs. 1, 2). M. Schneider was responsible for the construction as well as the technology of the device.
