Figure 1: Images of a 32 year old male patient [Case 3]. (a) T2 weighted sagittal magnetic resonance imaging showing cervical spondylotic myelopathy with disc protrusions at C2-3 and C3-4 levels. (b) Sagittal magnetic resonance imaging with cut through the facets showing the Type 2 atlantoaxial facetal instability. (c) Computed tomography scan of the cervical spine with the head in flexion. (d) Postoperative computed tomography scan of the patient showing posterior midline bone graft. (e) Postoperative computed tomography scan with the cuts through the facets showing the C2-3, C3-4 and C4-5 transarticular screw fixation. (f) Postoperative magnetic resonance imaging showing the reduction of cord compression. (g) Images showing the range of neck motion after fixation
