Abstract

Type III odontoid fractures have been treated by several methods. In case of anteriorly displaced type III odontoid fracture which is not corrected by closed reduction, anterior screw fixation cannot be used. We report the first case of anterior screw fixation of anteriorly displaced type III odontoid fracture corrected by transoral digital manipulation.
