Abstract / Description of output

The cranial cervical vertebral column carries a unique range of mobility with the addition of dorsal and ventral flexion and rotation. The denticulate ligaments provides
support and protection of the spinal cord, but little is known of the adaption of this
apparatus at the cranial cervical portion of the spinal cord. We present in this publication a new pair of ligaments in dogs that supports the spinal cord inside the vertebral
canal at the level of the C1-C2 spinal segments.
