Abstract

Cement augmentation for fixation of osteoporotic type II odontoid fractures showed biomechanical advantages. It was also shown that cement augmentation of the newly developed screw is technically easy and safe under in vitro conditions. The technique might be useful with regard to the surgical treatment of elderly patients with osteoporotic odontoid fractures.
