Atlantoaxial joint

image.slidesharecdn.com_atlantoaxialandoccipitaljoint-141025034050-conversion-gate01_95_atlantoaxial-and-occipital-joint-30-638.jpg The atlantoaxial joint is a joint in the upper part of the neck between the atlas and axis.

The atlantoaxial joint is of a complicated nature. It consists of no fewer than four distinct joints.

There is a pivot articulation between the odontoid process of the axis and the ring formed by the anterior arch and the transverse ligament of the atlas.

Posterior C1-C2 temporary-fixation technique can spare the range of motion (ROM) of the atlantoaxial joint after odontoid fracture healing
