C1-C2 Rotatory subluxation

These are special situations presenting in adolescents after minor trauma or after throat inflammatory processes.

The transverse ligament may be ruptured or intact.

The treatment may be conservative in acute cases with cervical traction. If reduction cannot be achieved, then C1-C2 fusion would be indicated.
