NCT: NCT00266929Dec 20, 2005Clinical Trial

Treatment of Type II Odontoid Fractures Among the Elderly

ClinicalTrials.gov

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to compare the safety and effectiveness of surgical versus conservative management of type II odontoid fractures among patients > 64 years of age. Of secondary interest is to determine if there are differences in outcomes between anterior screw fixation and posterior fusion of these fractures.
