Join us as we count down to 2021 with a SANS question every day this month. Test your knowledge and learn something new each day as you participate. Questions will be posted to Twitter daily.
What is the most common delayed neurologic sequela associated with an untreated Type III occipital condylar fracture (OCF)?
Lower cranial n. deficits
High cervical myelopathy
The correct answer is lower cranial n. deficits.
In a number of patients untreated for type III occipital condyle fractures, delayed lower cranial nerve deficits developed. Thus, it is recommended to treat Occipital condyle fractures, particularly type III, with cervical immobilization- most commonly via rigid brace.
The SANS Lifelong Learning Exams was designed to enhance medical knowledge and self-assessment in neurosurgery, reinforce practice patterns, and recognize knowledge gaps. SANS exams offer 250 questions across specialties worth up to 24 CME.
