PMID:  16147593     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
A new technique is described for the removal of ligaments and soft tissue during a transoral resection of the odontoid process in a patient with rheumatoid arthritis. The technique employed is Coblation, a form of electrosurgery that operates at lower temperatures than conventional electrosurgical technique and, therefore, produces less collateral damage.
