Apfelbaum Odontoid Fixation Anterior Odontoid Fixation according to Apfelbaum

The Apfelbaum odontoid system is a fixation technique in the treatment of odontoid fractures. The advantage of the Apfelbaum technique lies in preserving the full range of motion of the segment and in the minimized approach.


  • Immediate stability
  • Often eliminates need for external orthosis
  • Preserves normal C1-C2 motion
  • Highest fusion rate
  • Rapid return to work and normal lifestyle


  • Odontoid screw, partially threaded, made of Titanium alloy
  • Special instruments for minimal access
  • Odontoid retractor blades and counter retractor based on CCR Caspar cervical retractor
  • Odontoid guiding sleeve for save preparation and precise implantation

cus**** My orthopedic dr recommended this brace. Medocal’s price was very good. I purchased the brace with the anterior panel, and needed the posterior as well. Medocal was very helpful and provided the additional panel at a reasonable price. Excellent back brace. Better yet, Medocal was prompt and very responsive!
