1–10). Subsequent embryonic repair of this initial disturbance could result in a variety of malformations that, although phenotypically different, share a common embryonic mechanism. 30 Hemivertebrae, sagittally clefted (butterfly) vertebrae, fused (block) vertebrae, midline osseous or fibrocartilaginous spurs or bands, and some types of the Klippel-Feil anomaly, iniencephaly, and sacral agenesis have all been described (reviewed by Dias and Walker30). The association of these vertebral malformations with elements of the split cord malformation and its sequelae is the key to identifying this embryopathy.

Chapter 2 Clinical Biomechanics of the Pediatric Craniocervical Junction and Subaxial Spine Figure 2–2 Normal motion curve of C1 and C2 rotation (Adapted from Pang D, Sun PP. Pediatric vertebral column and spinal cord injuries. In: Youmans JR, ed. Neurological Surgery. Philadelphia: WB Saunders; 2004:3515–3557). The dynamics of axial rotation can be described by a motion curve where the degrees of rotation are plotted on an x- and y-axis (Fig. 2–2). Because there is minimal rotation at O–C1, the head essentially moves with C1 during rotation, and the degree of head axial rotation is essentially the same as the degree of C1 rotation.
