The timing of butterfly vertebrae in these models, as well as the few described human fetal malformations,42 supports the view that these defects arise during the initial formation of the somites. 42 Localized failure of fusion of the ventral and dorsal ossification centers could result in malformations of either or both the pedicles and the facets, such as dysplastic spondylolysis. Moreover, a failure of fusion of the bilaterally paired dorsal chondrification or, later, ossification centers could result in spina bifida occulta, with a missing or malformed spinous process.
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. This is plotted on the x-axis. The degree of rotation between C1 and C2 is plotted on the y-axis.
