10, 12) The distribution of C2 fracture consists of odontoid 59%, hangman's 22%, and nonodontoid, nonhangman's fractures 20%.
Type II: C2 fracture with displacement of the fragment anterior to the ring fracture with flexion, extension, or anterolisthesis (Figure 8).
Also, the patient suffered from a type III dens fracture with posterior displacement of the odontoid process; pathologic C2 fracture
with a comminuted and impacted C2 vertebral body; and multiple lyric lesions at the arch of C1.
From their study, favorable indications for palmar locking plate osteosynthesis are A2, A3, C1, and C2 fractures
with large distal fracture fragments.
