PMID: 31605844.


C2 vertebral body (axis) lesions are often approached anteriorly combined with posterior stabilization of craniovertebral junction (CVJ). The anterior approach has its limitations. A posterolateral corridor is an alternative access to the C2 body lesions, and this alone may suffice in selected cases. We describe our experience with C2 body lesions, dealt primarily through posterior approach, and propose an algorithm in the management of such cases.
