Single-stage combined anterior retropharyngeal and posterior approach for the resection and reconstruction of C2 metastatic tumors: A case report

2014 Experimental and Therapeutic Medicine  
A conventional posterior cervical approach was used to resect the left transverse process and part of the tumor in a piecemeal fashion, and spinal instrumentation was also performed.  ...  A high anterior retropharyngeal approach was then used to resect the tumorous C2 vertebral body by corpectomy and to perform anterior reconstruction.  ...  Due to the close proximity to the neurovascular and soft tissues of the upper cervical spine, the resection and reconstruction of a metastatic tumor is challenging for spinal surgeons.  ...
