Grisel syndrome after velopharyngoplasty

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

We describe two patients with Grisel syndrome (atlantoaxial dislocation) after velopharyngoplasty. One required open fixation, while the other was treated with closed reduction and skull traction. Both patients recovered well after long-term follow-up. Early detection and appropiate treatment improve the prognosis.
