Objective: Posterior instrumentation is the preferred method of fixation in the unstable cervicothoracic junction (CTJ). Several posterior rod constructs of different diameters and configurations are available for instrumentation across the cervicothoracic junction. The objective of this study was to[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
