Lecture: Complications and Revisions in upper cervical spine
Complications in upper cervical spine (UCS) surgery are rare but potentially lethal due to upper cervical spinal cord, vertebral artery VA. Beside known complications there are some specific complications caused by unique UCS anatomy, biomechanics and different load distribution UCS revision surgery is rarely performed and is much more difficult than primary one because of the reasons mentioned upwards but even more complicated by failure of previous treatment, scarring and/or recurrence or progression of disease.
