The radiographs were evaluated for following characteristics: loss of cervical lordosis, odontoid
process erosions, fracture of vertebrae (indicated by a decline in height of vertebral body), aAAS, arthritis of 1st and 2nd cervical vertebrae (C1-C2), atlantoaxial impaction (AAI), inflammation of disc, apophyseal joint arthritis,
Finally, the risk of instability requiring fusion after resection of the odontoid
and anterior arch of C1 is a concern.
10, 12) The distribution of C2 fracture consists of odontoid
59%, hangman's 22%, and nonodontoid, nonhangman's fractures 20%.
In surgery group, seven patients were CI-CIII odontoid
fractures, six patients were fracture-stable axis fractures and two patients were CI fracture-Hangman's fractures.

process of the axis articulates with the atlas-transverse ligaments.
The distinguishing feature of the axis is the odontoid
process, also known as the dens or the odontoid
peg, which a tooth-like process which projects superiorly from the body of the axis and is held in place by the transverse ligament of the atlas (Moore & Dalley 1999).
In the morning I went to my local doctor, who gave me another x-ray and discovered I'd fractured my odontoid
peg, which sits between the first and second vertebrae.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, bearing in mind the considerable degree of dental wear present on the occlusal surface of a tooth, the fusion of the cranial synostosis on the inner face and the fact that there is a widening of the joint surface on the odontoid
apophysis as a result of an incipient degenerative process in the joint, it is possible to precise that the individual was between 30 and 40 years of age.
She was taken to Morriston Hospital, Swansea, after the fall, where a fracture of the odontoid
peg, which holds the top two vertebrae of the spine, was diagnosed.
