Chapters include: Anatomy of the Cervical Spine, Nonoperative Management of Cervical Spine Trauma, and Subaxial
Cervical Spine Injuries.
cervical spine injuries: Origins, management, and outcome in 51 patients.
For access to the airway, the facemask should be removed with the helmet and shoulder pads left in place, as removing the helmet has been shown to increase the lordosis of the subaxial
spine in immobilized hockey players.
cervical spine subluxation in rheumatoid arthritis.
Surgery for acute subaxial
traumatic central cord syndrome without fracture or dislocation.
Ventral Approaches to the subaxial
spine Schlenk 3:20 p.
Since IB measures bonding between fibers in the subaxial
direction, bond strength depends more on interfiber bonds between lignin and other wood components.
The neurocentral joints of Luschka and the intervertebral disks are also functional components of the subaxial
The major subaxial
ligaments include the anterior and posterior longitudinal ligaments and the posterior ligamentous complex (PLC).
cervical spine, where most fusion procedures are performed, is bordered by a highly mobile upper cervical region that provides nearly half of all cervical motion.
Each segment of the subaxial
spine allows for coupled rotation and lateral bending, due to the unique shape of the uncovertebral articulation and facet joints, which further increases the functional range of cervical motion.
The majority of spinal involvement in patients with SLE occurs in the upper cervical spine, but can involve the subaxial
spine as well.
