The craniovertebral junction (CVJ) is a complex anatomical area upon which most of the motion of the upper cervical spine depends . Because of its unique range of motion, the CVJ is subject to several types of traumatic injury; it has been shown that odontoid fractures are the most common ones in the general population and are the most common isolated spinal fractures . Accounting for up to 18% of all cervical fractures, odontoid fractures are the most common ones in elderly patients , in whom they account for up to 60% of spinal cord injuries .
