Odontoid Open Mouth View is for suspected C2 fracture
and should show lateral masses of the first cervical vertebra and entire odontoid process.
He sustained a C2 fracture
to his neck and complete spinal cord injury - an injury medics said was almost "unsurvivable".

10, 12) The distribution of C2 fracture
consists of odontoid 59%, hangman's 22%, and nonodontoid, nonhangman's fractures 20%.
Combination fractures of C1 and C2 should be evaluated by computed tomography (CT), with reconstruction whenever an isolated C1 or C2 fracture
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.
Palmar plate fixation of AO type C2 fracture
of distal radius using a locking compression plate--a biomechanical study in a cadaveric model.
One patient with AO type C2 fracture
had a full thickness skin necrosis adjoining the anterior incision around medial malleolus.
Type C fractures are T-condylar and Y-condylar fractures; type C1 fractures have no comminution, type C2 fractures
have a comminuted shaft fracture with two principal articular fragments and type C3 fractures have intraarticular comminution.
Subjects included 56 adults, average age 80, who were treated for C2 fractures
over a 10-year period.
From their study, favorable indications for palmar locking plate osteosynthesis are A2, A3, C1, and C2 fractures
with large distal fracture fragments.
In type C2 fractures
excellent outcome was seen in 21 (53.
