Abstract

A 51-year-old female presented with traumatic C6-7 subluxation associated with C-7 fracture due to an automobile accident. She underwent pedicle screw fixation at C-6, C-7, and T-1 for stabilization of the spinal column. A neuronavigation system was used to obtain accurate placement of the pedicle screws. The patient recovered well without further neurological compromise. Postoperative cervical radiography showed reasonable restoration of the vertebral column without delayed kyphotic deformity.
