Abstract provided by Publisher
The goal of this article is to identify the best surgical procedure in treating disorders of the cranio-cervical functions of varying etiology and in varying stages of advancement. The author discusses the methods of surgical procedure and evaluates the effects obtained in this own clinical material, encompassing 106 patients treated surgically at the M. Weiss Rehabilitation Center im. Konstancin, Poland, between 1983 and 1999, using internal fixation with bone grafts and internal stabilizers. The treatment outcome was evaluated on the basis of the author’s own three-tiered scale. An analysis of the results obtained demonstrates that the use of bone grafts and internal stabilizers is the best solution in the treatment of instability of the cranio-cervical function.
