Figure 4

Dorsoventral (a) and lateral (b) radiographs taken immediately post-op. This animal sustained a neurological deficit post-op which did not resolve. An example of a rod-to-wire distance measurement is shown on the lateral radiograph as distance between two outlined arrows, and CC wire deemed to be the cause of the neurological deficit is shown by a solid black arrow.
