Small clinical series and biomechanical data support their role as a substitute for other posterior stabilization techniques; however, the application of transarticular
facet screws in the subaxial cervical spine has not been widely adopted, possibly because of surgeon unfamiliarity with the trajectory.
Treatment of tarsal joint deformities with hinged transarticular
external fixators in three young birds.
Robot-assisted posterior C1-2 transarticular
screw fixation for atlantoaxial instability: A case report.
Postoperative radiographs confirmed that the luxation was reduced, the joint was aligned, and the transarticular
pinning was correct (Figure 1B).
Closed reduction transarticular
Kirschner wire fixation versus open reduction internal fixation in the treatment of Bennett's fracture dislocation.
Complete reduction of retro-odontoid soft tissue mass in os odontoideum following the posterior C1-C2 transarticular
Management of fractures near the carpal joint of two calves by transarticular
fixation with a circular external fixator.
However, extension to the cranium was gradually eliminated after description of C2-C1 transarticular
screw and C2 pedicle screws [2, 3, 13, 14, 17-19].
Eventually, we decided to proceed with transarticular
retrograde technique for the removal of the broken nail through a medial para patellar arthrotomy.
According to Boettcher et al (23), with 90[degrees] shoulder abduction, the alignment of the deltoid fibers promote a transarticular
compressive force, acting to stabilize the joint.
Long Term Outcomes of Atlantaxial Fusion with Transarticular
A variety of surgical approaches have been used, such as C1-C2 posterior wiring and fusion, C1-C2 transarticular
screw stabilization, and posterior clamping techniques.
