    Myron L Rolle, Rosemary E Henn, David W Low and Phillip B Storm*

    Obtaining a solid bony fusion after an extensive skull base and upper cervical spine resection in a patient who has previously received radiation therapy is extremely diffi cult and usually results in pseudoarthrosis. We report a technique that uses a free fi bular graft with an arteriovenous loop for a posterior occipital cervical fusion.
